CUATG Podcast … “T.I.P.S.” for CU at UCLA / Oregon State Recap: High Water Mark for Buffs … Or Just the Beginning?

Hard to believe, but the Buffs put their fans through not one, but two, field goal attempts by Oregon State in the final minute of play in a 37-34 2OT thriller. The second Everett Hayes offering – a 60-yarder – was good, sending the game into overtime. With a history of losing such bizarre finales, the Buffs didn’t flinch, scoring a touchdown in overtime, then watching as CU freshman kicker Cole Becker calmly hit a 43-yard game winner.

Stuart, Brad, and Neil discuss the Buffs’ upset victory over the Beavers, and what the win means (the most complete game of the season), as well as what the game could mean for the program in the weeks and years ahead.

We then turn our attention to the UCLA game. Dorian Thompson-Robinson is 1-2 as the Bruin starting quarterback in games against Colorado, but the senior is certainly a threat to the Buff defense. UCLA has one of the bottom ten pass defenses in the nation, and is the bottom ten in allowing third down conversions. Can the CU offense score enough points to keep up with DTR and the Bruins?

  1. Great podcast as always. I am as stunned by CU’s performance last weekend by Niel’s prediction to win last week! I am still tying to understand how the change in offensive line coaches has had that big of an improvement. I have not sat down and went through the tape to see how the blocking schemes have changed but I am surprised they can change that much. I was of the opinion that the Oregon points were a sign of them letting off the gas. But Oregon State seems to prove out that we may have found something…..

    We seem to have UCLA’s number even when we shouldn’t so maybe we will this time but until I see a better defensive effort I think I have to realistically say UCLA pulls this one out especially at home. But maybe, just maybe all this team needed was a new blocking scheme…..
