The Colorado Buffaloes will be looking to improve off of a 2019 season that did not go as planned.  Colorado struggled inside the Pac-12, finishing the year with a conference record of (3-6), and an overall record of (5-7).  The offense averaged 23.5 points per game, which ranked 100th at the FBS level.  The defense allowed 31.8 points per contest, which ranked 96th.  The program is under the direction of Mel Tucker. 

The offense was guided by quarterback Steven Montez.  Montez passed for 2,808 yards and 17 touchdowns, while throwing 10 interceptions.  However, Montez was a senior a season ago, therefore Colorado will be sliding someone new under center.  Quarterback Blake Stenstrom looks to be the guy in line for extended playing time.  Stenstrom passed for just 12 yards and an interception as a freshman.  Running back Alex Fontenot will be looking to build off a solid 2019 campaign.  Fontenot rushed for 874 yards and 5 touchdowns.  K.D. Nixon hauled in 35 receptions for 465 yards and 3 touchdowns, as he brings the most experience to the receiving game.    

As a team, the defense totaled 24 sacks and 11 interceptions.  The defense was led by linebacker Nate Landman.  Landman collected 114 tackles and 2 sacks as a junior.  Terrance Lang made his presence known as a sophomore on the defensive line, recording 5.5 sacks which was a team lead. The staple in the secondary is Derrion Rakestraw.  Rakestraw registered 3 interceptions and had 4 pass break ups.

Let us take a look at the Colorado schedule for the 2020 season. 

Sept. 5 at Colorado State

Sept. 12 Fresno State

Sept. 19 at Texas A&M

Sept. 26 Oregon

Oct. 9 at Arizona

Oct. 17 UCLA

Oct. 24 Arizona State

Oct. 31 at USC

Nov. 7 Washington State

Nov. 14 at Stanford

Nov. 21 at Washington

Nov. 28 Utah

The Buffaloes open the season against in-state foe Colorado State. The next two games are also non-conference matchups against Fresno State and a game on the road at Texas A&M.  The projected win total is set at 3 wins.  Colorado does not have experience at the quarterback position. However, Colorado should have an above average chance to start the season 2-0.  

Seeing how inconsistent the Pac-12 was last season, I’m gonna put stock in Colorado to at least win 1 conference game.  Therefore, I’m going to take the over as Colorado should be able to get at least 1 conference with plus 2 non-conference wins at the very least.
