Arizona Vs Colorado 🏈 game discussion thread 10/05/19 at 1:30pm PAC12N

Will Arizona's one-man show at quarterback Khalil Tate against Colorado. That's the question the fan's minds. Tate was absent from the Wildcats’ 20-17 win over UCLA last week due to a hamstring injury suffered against Texas Tech that was not responding well to treatment. True freshman Grant Gunnell got the start and did enough to lead his team to the victory completing 29-of-44 passes for 352 yards and a score. Of course, that was UCLA, a team that gave up more than 500 yards of passing the week before and is by far the worst defense in the Pac-12.

It won’t be as easy for either Tate or Gunnell facing a Colorado defense coming off of a bye week after knocking off its second nationally-ranked opponent in three weeks. First it was Nebraska, then Arizona State -- both by identical 34-31 scores -- and that Arizona State win looks even more impressive after the Sun Devils’ week 5 win over previously unbeaten Cal. But neither defense has been impressive in the early going as both teams rank in the bottom half of the Pac-12 in points allowed per game, and only UCLA is worse than these two teams in yards allowed per game.

So far this season, Colorado is 3-1 against the spread (ATS) while Arizona is just 1-2-1. Colorado has also hit the over in three out of four games this season. Arizona’s games have reached the over total twice and the under total twice.

Colorado is currently favored by -3.5

Let's talk about how you think the CATS will do this weekend. 

Let's Go! Beat the Buffs & BEARDOWN!!!

Tough to guess how this game will play out with so many questionable players on both sides. Arizona has played consistent after that loss in Hawaii. I'd rather them lose that first game of the season and improve like they have going forward (plus Hawaii is 4-1 and steamrolled Nevada 54-3 last week). Offense staying on the field longer relying on the ground game, short passes, not looking for that long ball as often, and of course a defense. Colorado's had some scrappy wins and played very inconsistent between their first and second half performances, with the exception of ASU in their last game where they seemed to put a complete game together. But it feels like Montez has been there for going on 10 years now and they've got some seasoned players. Although Colorado's run game isn't very consistent, Fontenot can be explosive. 

Colorado's rushing defense is 95th in FBS giving up 175 ypg, Pass D 117th/291 ypg through the air up against
UA's 11th ranked rushing offense at 255 ypg, and 23rd through the air at 296 ypg.

On the other side UA's rush D sitting at 57th/137 ypg, pass D 127th/336 ypg and
CU's rushing offense 85th/143 ypg, Pass 28th/291 ypg.

It's interesting that both teams are ranked high in turnover margin, Colorado at +7, UA +6, ranked 2nd and 6th respectively in FBS. 
Arizona's 6-1 against Colorado since 2012, for some reason our players have just match well against the Buffs in recent years.

If we're Tateless I think Gunnell can keep us close either way, but Tate's experience could give us just enough to get the W on the road, which is much needed before heading into the gauntlet looking forward at UW, USC, the Ducks, and Stanford. It would be great to see if UA can bring that consistency built from the last 3 games away from home, even if we don't win.

I'll be the first to predict that Grant Gunnell will start.
While I'm making predictions....  I would take the under 62 and separately Colorado -4.
Hope I'm wrong and Arizona stays undefeated in PAC12 conference play!

I was under the impression that Shenault was going to be a game-time decision.  If that's the case, our DB's can play man-coverage & try to get to Montez...who has barely been touched this season.

I'll be at the game & will make some noise!  BTFD

Looks like white helmets, white jerseys, red pants for Arizona against Colorado.

9 sided dice online

Wish we sat near the visitor’s section. Surrounded by Buffs fans, but it was worth it after the final drive. Love Boulder...Bear Down!
