Hmm... That certainly doesn't paint a pretty picture does it? Not quite sure I want to write that much about the graphic above. It's rather nauseating...

I knew they had a tough D thanks to a very strong defensive line, but I didn't know that it was that good. Putting up numbers like that in the Pac-12, even if it's is devoid of the Oregon and Stanford offensive attacks, is really impressive. Utah is number 9 in the nation in rushing defense and 20th scoring D. 

 http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a0/University-of-Colorado-Boulder-sports-logo.png First of all, Colorado has zero chance in this game if the Buffaloes offense is as inept as it was against UCLA. Zero. Chance. But, if we see an offense like we did against Cal, Washington State and Arizona, this could be a pretty interesting game. The Buffs haven't really had a slow, slug it out, low-scoring type game like this could turn out to be. If the Colorado defense is clicking and can slow down John White IV this could turn out to be fun, but that's a BIG if.  

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a0/University-of-Colorado-Boulder-sports-logo.png The Utah offense is the only one in the Pac-12 worse than Colorado's, but don't be fooled into thinking the Utes won't put up points on Saturday. The Buffs passing game is going to have to work this weekend. Both Toney Clemons and Paul Richardson will need to contribute and Hansen won't have a lot of time to get them the ball. My biggest key to this contest is the screen game to Rodney Stewart. If Eric Bienemy can get that going again, and hopefully counter the Utah pass rush, CU may be able to get the offense moving.
