The Colorado Buffaloes will rest this weekend, but once they’ve licked their wounds, they will be ready for another win. The Buffs are currently 3-1, which is three games away from bowl eligibility with 8 games left on the schedule. If Colorado is going to bowl, they need to beat the Arizona Wildcats, who are 2-1 an unimpressive 2-1.
The game will be played on October 5th at Folsom Field. The time and TV channel were announced on Monday morning.
The 2:30 start time is great. It’s late enough for the students to roll out of bed and support their Buffs, and it’s early enough to avoid #Pac12AfterDark. Weird football has doomed the Buffs the last two times they played Khalil Tate and the ‘Cats, so hopefully we’ll avoid that in the sunlight.
Speaking of the sun, it seems necessary that regardless of the weather next Saturday, Mel Tucker should wear shorts again.
