For our final story in the NCAA 2013 series (previous posts are here and here) I decided to simulate a full season for Colorado on the game as a fun way to see how the season could play out. Obviously the results have very little bearing on how the season will go this year, but it's always an interesting thing to look at. Thanks to Brad for helping me with the simulation.
vs. Colorado St. Rams - W - 28-14
vs. Sacramento St. Hornets - W - 35-0
at Fresno St. Bulldogs - L - 16-21
at Washington St. Cougars - W - 20-6
vs. UCLA Bruins - L - 7-14
vs. Arizona St. Sun Devils - L - 24-30
at #9 USC Trojans - L - 6-37
at #7 Oregon Ducks - L - 14-27
vs. Stanford Cardinal - L - 14-21
at Arizona Wildcats - W - 30-24
vs. Washington Huskies - W - 24-20
vs. #3 Utah Utes - L - 26 - 45
I think 2-1 coming out of non-conference is probably the most likely result (unless it's 1-2, which I don't want to think about) and a win over Washington State would be huge. However, if the Buffaloes fail to beat either the Bruins or Sun Devils at home then this season may be an exceptionally ugly one. Also, I have no idea why this game loves Utah so much, but they had the Utes going 12-0 in the regular season...
