Stanford is the 11th ranked team in the nation and they still have their sights set on a college football playoff berth. They have a tough remaining schedule facing Cal, Oregon, and Notre Dame, but they cannot look past Colorado.
The Cardinal are the 16-point road betting favorite, but the Buffaloes did give a scare to a ranked
UCLA team in their last game.
Stanford has won 7 games in a row after their were upset in their season opener.
In their last games Stanford beat Washington State 30-28 and Colorado lost to UCLA 35-31.
Stanford is all alone atop the Pac 12 North Division and they have a great ground game led by Heisman candidate Christian McCaffrey.
OK, so he is a major long shot to win the award, but he has been solid all season and rushed for over 100 yards in 5 straight games.
However, teams have keyed on him in the last 2 games and in each he failed to average over 5 yards per carry.
The Colorado run defense ranks only 102nd in the nation and is they cannot contain McCaffrey they may be in for a long day.
Kevin Hogan is coming off a less than stellar in the win over Washington State were he passed for only 86 yards with 0 TD and he was picked off.
He has a good WR corps and with the Buffaloes, who rank 64th in pass defense, keying on McCaffrey than the Cardinal signal caller may have a big game.
These 2 teams have not met since the 2012 season at Colorado when the Cardinal laid a 48-0 beat down on the Buffaloes.
Colorado has to be confident in this game, as they played UCLA close in their last game and won their previous one. They are 2-2 this season and They have a balanced offense that ranks 44th in the nation in passing yards per game and 38th in rushing yards per game.
Buffaloes QB Sefo Liufau passed for over 310 yards in the loss to UCLA, but he had 0 TD and was picked off twice.
Nelson Spruce and Shay Fields, who each have over 540 receiving yards, lead the WR corps that will face a Stanford pass D that ranks 68th in the nation.
The Cardinal rank 29th in the nation defending the run and the Buffaloes’ top 2 RB’s in Phillip Lindsay and Christian Powell have been struggling as of late.
Liufau is the key for Colorado as he has to have a good game and avoid the turnover for the Buffaloes to have any chance at the upset.
