The Battle of Colorado will take place at Folsom Field as Northern Colorado Bears will take on Pac-12 powerhouse Colorado Buffaloes.
Both teams are coming into Saturday being undefeated as the Bears were a week late to the party as they had their season opener last week.
Northern Colorado Bears
What a way to open up the season for the Colorado Bears as they defeated the College of Idaho Yotes 41-14. It was a very impressive win as they jumped on them early and did not step off the gas pedal.
They did slow down in the 2nd half a bit, only because they held a dominant lead of 35-7 at halftime. One of the reasons why the Bears were so successful was the two turnovers they forced on Idaho Yotes.
The offense was also in sync as they outplayed the Yotes 408 to 336 in total offensive yards.
Leading the charge on offense for the Bears was running back Trae Riek who had 18 carries for 74 yards and three touchdowns.
NFL hopeful Kyle Sloter left the team last year as quarterback Jacob Knipp has huge shoes to fill. The anticipation will be nowhere near Sloter’s 29 touchdown season, but having a leader on the field is necessary.
Pac-12 Colorado Buffaloes improved to 2-0 on the season as they took care of Texas State Bobcats as they should have 37-3.
The Bobcats did slow down the Buffaloes for most of the 2nd half, but could not stop the Colorado offense from fully unleashing.
The Buffaloes took a 31-3 lead at the end of the third quarter as the second win was finally in sight. One of the reasons why the Buffaloes finally clicked was quarterback Steven Montez who started to have a hot-hand in the 2nd half.
The quarterback completed 19 of 31 passes for 299 yards and a touchdown. He led the Buffaloes offense to a total of 430 total yards while the Bobcats had almost half of that with 238 yards.
So far Montez loves to target his favorite wide receiver Shady Fields who is averaging around 94 yards per game. The offense may be finally clicking, but the defense is leading Colorado.
The Buffaloes have forced five turnovers and allowing an average of three points per game so far this season.
