Colorado vs Oregon Preview
The offense is really good and they are fun to watch. The Bufs are averaging 41.3 points per game through their first three games this season. They are averaging 479 yards per game and 418 has been through the air. Quarterback Shedeur Sanders has lit it up throwing 10 touchdowns and just 1 interception and 1,251 yards. Oregon's defense will be more of a challenge than they have faced the last couple weeks but the Ducks did allow Texas Tech to score 30 on them while throwing for 282 yards. I don't think the offense will be a problem for Colorado in this game (or any game) this season, they won't have any problem scoring points even without a key piece. The defense on the other hand, well that's a different story. They allowed 35 to Colorado State and 42 to TCU in Week 1. They have to do their best to match up against Bo Nix and the high powered Oregon offense this week and it's not going to end well for them.
Is Travis Hunter out?
Colorado will be without a key piece this week with two way star Travis Hunter on the sideline due to a late hit he took last week. Last week's hit had Colorado fans sending death threats to Colorado State's Henry Blackburn. Hunter could miss up to three games and will be out this week.
You don't know Bo? Bo Nix leads this Oregon offense and he's thrown 8 touchdowns to no interceptions while completing 77.6% of his passes this season. His yardage numbers aren't eye popping but that's what happens when your team is up 7+ scores in 2 of your 3 games. His biggest play of the season was a 72 yard pass. If you don't know Bo, you will after this game on Saturday because he is going to tear up this Colorado defense. Colorado doesn't get a lot of pressure on the QB so Bo Nix will have time to sit back and pick them apart. The Colorado defense has created 10 turnovers this season but Oregon hasn't turned the ball over once. This is a key factor to watch in this game, Colorado will need to force turnovers if they want to have a chance to win. Oregon's defense will struggled putting up resistance against the Colorado offense. Ducks fans will brag about holding Hawaii to 10 and Portland State to 7 but honestly, that's too many points for a "#10" ranked team to give up to a couple of weak ass programs.

Who will win Colorado or Oregon?
Oregon comes in as -21 point favorites in this game which is a similar situation Colorado faced in their season opener being a three score underdog. Colorado came out on top with a 45-42 game in that one. Can they do it again? I just don't know if they are going to be able to get enough stops against Bo Nix and this Oregon Ducks offense. Also add in that the Bufs will be without one of their best players. Oregon is going to win this game, but the real questions is if they can cover the spread?
