Colorado Buffaloes Football Schedule Announced

The Buffs have a difficult road slate in 2020.

NCAA Football: Washington at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

On Thursday afternoon, the Pac-12 released the full season schedules for the entirely of the conference. The Colorado Buffaloes have a fairly manageable schedule, as they have two non-conference games against Mountain West foes, host three of the more middling Pac-12 teams, and have a few winnable away games.

Sept. 5: at Colorado State

Sept. 12: Fresno State

Sept. 19: at Texas A&M

Sept. 26: Oregon

Oct. 3: idle

Oct. 9 (Friday): at Arizona

Oct. 17: UCLA

Oct. 24: Arizona State

Oct. 31: at USC

Nov. 7: Washington State

Nov. 14: at Stanford

Nov. 21: at Washington

Nov. 28: Utah

Dec. 4: Pac-12 Championship (Las Vegas)

The Pac-12 schedule is virtually the same as last year, just with home and road games flipped and a few games moved around. Colorado went 5-7 against that schedule in 2019, even with an inexperienced defense ravaged by injuries. There’s reason to believe they could bounce back, find an identity on offense, and reach bowl eligibility.

Colorado State and Fresno State are certainly winnable, as are home games against UCLA and Arizona State. Washington State could be had if they have suffer a drop off from Mike Leach to Nick Rolovich. After that, road games against Arizona and Stanford could be toss-ups, plus Colorado just Washington this past season. I assume Colorado will lose to Oregon and Utah (plus USC and probably Washington), but anything can happen in this wacky conference.

A fuller breakdown of the schedule will be written up in a few months when we know what each Pac-12 team will look like.
