The Colorado Buffaloes will be looking to claim their second Pac-12 conference win as they head into Washington State to take on the Cougars.
As for the Cougars, they are looking to regroup after their dreadful performance against the California Golden Bears.
The Colorado Buffaloes improved to 4-3 this past weekend after defeating the Oregon State Beavers to secure their first Pac-12 conference win of the season.
On the year, Colorado holds a 1-3 record in Pac-12 play.
Colorado finally showed some life on the season as they were down 19-14 at halftime and managed to pull off the comeback.
Leading the charge for Colorado in that comeback win was running back Phillip Lindsay who carried the ball 28 times for a season high 185 yards and 2 touchdowns.
That was about all of the offensive production as Colorado was outgained in total yards 569-385 by the Beavers and nearly pulled it off with just 1:34 left to play.
On the season, the Buffaloes are averaging 29.4 points per game with a total offensive yards of 432.1 per game as well. Most of their output comes on the ground as they average around 180 rushing yards per game.
If Colorado wants to secure another Pac-12 win, quarterback Steven Montez must step up. He is only completing 63% of his passes on the season for 12 touchdowns and 6 interceptions.
Washington State Cougars
The undefeated season can be officially crossed off the list of goals this season as the 15th ranked Washington State Cougars suffered their first loss of the season. They dropped to 6-1 on the season after being upset by the California Golden Bears.
It was a horrible day for the Cougars as they were shut down by the Bears with the final score of 37-3.
Usually Washington State controls the game with their high-powered offense, but the Bears were able to force the Cougars into 7 turnovers last Friday.
Contributing to the turnover battle was quarterback Luke Falk who had one of his worst starts in his career as he finished completing 28 of 43 passes for 286 yards with 5 interceptions.
It’s not normal to see Falk commit that many errors over and over especially in a Pac -12 conference game.
The Cougars can still regroup as they are averaging 34 points per game with over 450 total yards of offense. Most of them coming through the air with 380 passing yards per game.
If teams are able to stop Falk, the Cougars are in trouble.
