This game is pegged as “The Show down in The Mountains!” Washington State has one of the nations most dynamic offenses. The Colorado Buffaloes has the nations most stingiest defenses this year. The Buffs defense is number 4 overall in total defense. This will be one of the best games this weekend. Washington State was a big surprised to the nation with their high powered offense. This week the Buffs has their hands full. Let`s take a look at the game plan and players that will change the out look of this contest.
The offense has to control the clock. The Washington State offense scores and scores quick. Keeping the off the field with long clock eating drives will be the key on offense. Phillip Lindsay is averaging 131.5 on the ground and he needs to get the ball on first and second down to wear down the defense. Sefo Liufau has to be aggresive with his play. He`s a good runner, but the way to beat WASSU is with his arm. The offense has to be clicking on all cylinders this week
Washington`s head coach Mike Leach is an offensive mad scientist. He is the living version of the offensive dictionary. His play calling and offensive sets confuses opposing defenses. While coaching at Texas Tech his quarterbacks led the country in passing yards and touchdowns. The Buffs defense has to play stingy this week. The Buffs defense is leading the Pac-12 defense by giving up 17.1 points a game.Once was a soft defense, now the country is taking notice of how the Buffs defense is 5th in take a ways and 7th in the country in sacks. Stopping Luke Falk and the “Leach Air Raid Attack” will be the key to victory.
I`m picking Colorado this week by 3! This will be a close game from start to finish. Colorado`s defense versus Washington State`s Air Raid offense will be a good game!
