2020 Record: 4-2
5 ⭐ ………. 0
4 ⭐………. 0
3 ⭐………. 17
Not much was expected of the Buffaloes in 2020, much less to be in the Pac 12 title conversation. But a spectacular O line, a dynamic running game, and a passing game that made plays when it needed to…. along with a D that looked good until being exposed by Utah and Texas had them doing just that.
The same things the Buffaloes had going for them in 2020 are in place again in 2021…. and so are the problems. Throw in the fact that the schedule is rough… this could be a better team, but it’s unlikely their record will reflect it.
If Things Go Well
The ground game will need to be dominant, and the passing game will need to be consistent. The big issue… that schedule. Even 6 wins will need an upset somewhere.
If They Don’t
Other than Northern Colorado, there isn’t a single game on the slate the Buffaloes couldn’t easily lose.
It’s hard to imagine a team who leans this heavily on the run game being successful. Ball control used to win games… but in today’s game that’s hard to do; to many offenses who can score out there. If the D takes a huge step forward a bowl is a reasonable goal.
