Last season at this time, it was Colorado on its way to the Big 12 championship game when it was a heavy favorite over the Cornhuskers. Today at Memorial Stadium, it's a complete role reversal -- and then some -- as the Buffaloes limp in as two-touchdown underdogs, a 2-9 record and nothing more to play for than pride.
Here's guessing the Buffs will pull out all the stops and make it a game early. However, Colorado appears to lack the balance on offense to keep it close in the second half. Then again, this is NU-CU. Nothing that happens today should surprise anyone.
