The Buffs open up at home vs. Nebraska the following week on Saturday, Sept. 7 at 1:30 p.m. MT on FOX. The other two conference games come on a pair of Friday nights. One against Oregon at Autzen on Oct. 11 with Fox Sports 1’s coverage at 8 p.m. MT, and the other two weeks later at Folsom on Oct. 25 vs. USC with ESPN2’s broadcast starting at 7 p.m. MT.

The in-state contest between CU and Air Force on Sept. 14 will be carried on the Pac-12 Network with an 11 a.m. kickoff. A renewal between the Buffaloes and Falcons comes 45 years after their last meeting in Colorado Springs. Colorado holds a 12-4 all-time lead in the series going back to 1958.
