CU at the Game Podcast – “T.I.P.S” for CU v. No. 20 Texas, Tuesday, 7:00 p.m., MT, ESPN

It’s been a wild and unique 2020 season, so it should come as no surprise that the events leading up to Colorado being selected to face No. 20 Texas in the Alamo Bowl were equally bizarre. After taking a brief look at what turned out to be the Buffs’ regular season finale against Utah, Stuart and Brad take on the Pac-12, commissioner Larry Scott, Washington and USC for the untenable situation which resulted in CU getting an unwanted bye week. We then turn our attention to the Alamo Bowl, with our “T.I.P.S.” for the Buffs against the Longhorns.

  1. So I think the game is going to be a lot closer than people think. Especially with Texas opt outs. Texas compares to Stanford from an offensive out put perspective. Stan 287 vs Tex 274 pass, Stan 133 vs Tex 135 rush, Stan 29.3 ppg Tex 41 ppg. Stanford put 32 points on us. It looks like Texas is going to be better in the red zone though so let’s change 2 of those field goals to Td’s. Expect the Texas scor to be around 40. CU compares to TCU from an offensive standpoint: TCU 196 vs CU 202 passing, TCU 214 vs CU 220 rush, TCU 30.8 vs CU 29.6 ppg. TCU hung 33 on Texas. So 40-33 Texas just on finding similar match ups. Now take into account Texas has lost a ton of its big time talent since then and CU has lost Landman. The point spread is too high but the question will remain if CU can overcome what looks to be a 7 point lean toward Texas. Getting Russell back might be the difference.

    1. I’m not sure you can draw a straight line extrapolation to a score prediction based on previous results /stats like this. Too many variables involved and teams evolve over the course of a year. Based on CU’s pass defense those first two games, if the Stanford QB hadn’t got jobbed by erroneous testing and would have had a full game under his belt (Oregon) I bet Stanford would have put up more than 32. He was pretty rusty in the first half but got his feet under him the second and CU defense was a sieve the latter part of the game (plus Dorrell/Chev got way too conservative which led to 3 and outs and giving the ball right back). If Texas scores 40 I don’t see CU winning. CU struggled to put up 23 against Arizona which had 70 hung on them by ASU the next week. Typical Chev offense–lights out earlier in the year and predictable/pedestrian later in the year after teams get film on CU’s offense…
