Colorado And Oregon Game Preview

NCAA Football: Colorado at Oregon
Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

The Oregon Ducks will host the Colorado Buffaloes Saturday in Oregon. The Ducks are coming off a 34-31 win over the UCLA Bruins and improved their record to 6-1 on the season. In contrast, the Buffaloes are coming off a 26-3 loss to the California Bears. Colorado is now 2-5 so far this season.

Colorado Offensive Woes

It looked like Colorado was turning the corner with 34-0 when over Arizona two weeks ago. But that was not the case; they followed that performance by scoring just three points against Cal. The Buffaloes only averages 15.1 points per game and 238.1 yards per game. Colorado is about lats in the country in just about every offensive category.

The Buffaloes offensive line is a huge problem; they have allowed 22 sacks this season. Head coach Karl Dorel fired offensive line coach Mitch Rodrigue this week. However, Colorado does have some talent in their backfield with Jarek Broussard and Alex Fontenot. Broussard has rushed for 337 yards and Fontenot for 186 yards. The offensive line will need to protect quarterback Brendon Lewis better if they are to compete against Oregon.

Oregon’s offense

On the other hand, Oregon averaged 33.9 points per game and 425 yards per game of total offense. Oregon has Anthony Brown, a dual-threat quaterback; so far his has passed for 1,490 yards and rushed for 327 yards. Colorado must do its best to keep Brown in the pocket and make him a passer first and not let him use his legs to get out the pocket.

Oregon lacks a go-to receiver, but they have six players that have caught ten passes or more. But when it comes to crunch time, you have to have a go-to guy. The Ducks have running back Travis Dye, who leads the Ducks with 562 rushing yards and caches with 19. Colorado’s defensive game plan should beat to slow Dye and force Brown to be them with his arm.

Colorado’s struggles on the offensive line expect Oregon’s All-American defensive end, Kayvon Thibodeaux, to dominate the game. However, Oregon has other talented defensive players such as, Verone McKinley III and Mykael Wright.

It should be a dominating game for the Oregon defense and the offense should be able to put up 30 plus points on Colorado to win 38-10.
