You can make an argument that CU will have four returning starters along the offensive line next fall, supplemented by a graduate transfer … You can also make an argument that CU only has one returning starter (and a sophomore at that), with the line in a dangerous state of flux …

New offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic has a strong resume, but can he turn around a unit which was 99th in the nation in rushing (and 127th in tackles for loss allowed) last season? … Four offensive line starters return: Is that good news or bad? … Can Jacob Moretti still become a star? …


Laviska Shenault scored four touchdowns, with two scoring receptions and two scoring runs, leading No. 21 Colorado to a 28-21 win over Arizona State. For the game, Shenault had 13 receptions for 127 yards, to go with five carries for 13 yards.

Quarterback Steven Montez went 24-for-33 for 328 yards and two touchdowns, while Travon McMillian had 30 carries for 136 yards, becoming the first CU running back since Rashaan Salaam to post four 100-yard rushing games in the first five games of the season.

The game was tight throughout, with Arizona State taking 7-0, 14-7, and 21-14 leads, with the CU offense responding each time. Late i the third quarter, the Buffs took their first lead of the game on a Montez-to-Shenault three yard score. The Sun Devils appeared ready to respond, but cornerback Delrick Abrams, Jr., knocked away a Manny Wilkins pass on fourth-and-goal from the CU three yard line to preserve the lead.

“When you are the underdog you have to try and steal a possession and go for it even more”, said first-year head coach Herm Edwards of his decision to go for it on fourth-and-goal in the fourth quarter. “That is the logic behind it … If you do not you feel like you have nine minutes left—you hold them they punt, you can hopefully get the ball on the fifty and you get another shot. So it just didn’t work out.”


As goes the offensive line, so will go the CU season … Will the line come through? …
