2018 Colorado Season Preview
And … here … comes … Ralphie! The buffaloes cry, one of the best mascots in all of sports and a Boulder classic if you’ve ever seen this bad boy run in person. Last year was an incredible season, one that was frankly unexpected, and as such folks have been buzzing early about a potential repeat. A couple issues: a) this team isn’t as good; b) the Pac-12 South isn’t as bad. Now, if CU can start the season 3-0 with wins against Texas State, Northern Colorado and Colorado State (all possible by the way), then they’ve got to win just 4 of their last 9 to get to 7. Getting to 7 might not sound like a grand achievement, but this team would be overachieving at 8 or 9. Yet, if the passing game gets going with QB Stephen Montez, another dream season could be in the works. The defense is solid, some upgrades on offense could have Boulder singing again. Whether you are planning on cheering on Colorado at Folsom Field or supporting the Buffaloes on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all 2017 Colorado Buffaloes tickets, including home and away games.
Colorado Buffaloes Football at Folsom Field Address: 2400 Colorado Ave, Boulder, Colorado, 80302
The Colorado Buffaloes play their home games at Folsom Field in Boulder, Colorado. Originally known as Colorado Stadium, the facility was renamed in 1944 after the death of legendary Colorado Coach Fred Folsom, who coached the Buffs between 1895 and 1915. Folsom Field holds almost 54,000 spectators as well as providing a state of the art press box, luxury boxes and suites, and club seating. Visitors to “the hilltop” will be awed by this beautiful old stadium, and the backdrop provided by the Flatiron Mountains. The Colorado Buffaloes home bench is on the Folsom Field sideline with sections 115-120. Folsom Field parking information is covered in our Buffaloes event guide.
Colorado vs. Nebraska
These former Big 8 and Big 12 opponents are no strangers to playing each other. The Buffalos and Cornhuskers played for 63 consecutive years from 1948-2010 with Nebraska gaining a firm advantage in the series. Both teams have achieved major victories against the other, and this is one of the few matchups in the country that is always primed for an upset.
Colorado vs. Colorado State
Held yearly at a neutral site in Denver, the “Rocky Mountain Showdown” is the most anticipated all Colorado game of the season. With both teams’ fans filling Sports Authority Field, the stadium is never quiet from start to finish. Colorado has made this a very lopsided rivalry over the years, bringing the “Centennial Cup” back to Boulder almost every year. Despite Colorado’s dominance in wins, the games are always energetic and among of the best in Colorado every season.
Colorado Buffaloes in the College Football Playoff, Bowl Games and Pac 12 Championship
The Colorado Buffaloes are one of College Football’s most successful teams, ranking in the top 25 in all time wins. Their bowl history, which has reached double digit wins, is littered with victories over College Football powerhouses such as Alabama, Miami, Oregon and Notre Dame. Now a member of the Pac 12, those will always remember the 26 conference titles the Buffaloes accumulated across the Big 12 and 4 other conferences. Ticketcity offers tickets to all college football bowl games and the Pac 12 Conference Championship Game.
2015 Colorado Football Preview
The Colorado Buffaloes struggles on the gridiron continued a season ago. Colorado won only 2 games, and dropped their final 8 games, including two heartbreaking 2OT games. But there is much optimism in Boulder heading into the 2015 football season. Quarterback Sefo Liufau returns in 2015, coming off a 3,200 yard season in 2014. Liufau will have a number of talented Buffaloes around him, with running back Christian Powell, and receiver Nelson Spruce both returning for their senior seasons. While it is a bit too much of a stretch to consider the Colorado Buffaloes a contender in the PAC-12 in 2015, a more consistent offense should move them out of the PAC-12 basement and double their win total from a year ago. Top games on the Colorado Buffaloes 2015 football schedule are in Boulder against Oregon, Arizona, Stanford, and USC.
2014 Colorado Football Preview
The Buffaloes have struggled on the gridiron since leaving the Big 12 in 2010. But 2nd year head coach Mike Macintyre has the expectations in Boulder coming into 2014 are as high as they have been in a number of years. The Buffaloes will have to replace standout receiver Paul Richardson, but freshmen talents Shay Fields, and Nelson Spruce should be able to step in and contribute right away. Also look for another pair of talented freshmen, defensive ends Derek McCartney, and Christian Shaver to have an instant impact on the Buffs improving defensive front. Colorado has a good chance of becoming bowl eligible for the first time since 2007. Key games for the Buffaloes bowl hopes will be week 1 against Colorado State in the Rocky Mountain Showdown, September 27th at Cal, and November 29th against Utah.
2013 Colorado Football Preview
A new era has begun in Colorado with the hiring of Mike MacIntyre. MacIntyre resuscitated a San Jose State football program by winning 10 games in 2012, the first time that has happened in 25 years. The Colorado faithful is hoping MacIntyre can perform another miracle. MacIntyre inherits a Buffaloes team that finished last year with one win. It will take time for MacIntyre to make Colorado a factor in the PAC-12 and much of 2013 will be assessing the players that can help moving forward, but hope has returned to Boulder. Along with MacIntyre, the biggest acquisition for the Buffaloes this offseason will be the return of junior wide receiver Paul Richardson. After missing all of 2012 with a torn ACL, Richardson comes back hoping to build off his first two seasons that saw him catch a combine 73 balls for 1,069 yards and 11 touchdowns. The MacIntyre era begins with a road game against state rival Colorado State. Coming to Folsom Field this season will be exciting conference games against Oregon and USC.
2011 Colorado Football Preview
It’s been a busy off-season for the Colorado Buffaloes. Besides switching conferences, going from the Big 12 to the Pac-12, the Buffs are hoping to leave the Dan Hawkins-coaching era behind with the hiring of Jon Embree. Embree, a Colorado alumnus who had been honing his craft with the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Redskins, was brought in to resuscitate a dormant program.
For Embree, that meant putting his stamp on it. It started with bringing in fellow Buff alumni Eric Bieniemy to be the offensive coordinator, a tough task that started with rehauling the offensive around QB Tyler Hansen. Hansen’s playing time was limited thanks to Hawkins handing over the job to his son, who had less-than-spectacular accuracy. Starting tailback, senior Rodney Stewart, might be the only sure bet on that side of the ball, coming off a 1,318 yards and 10 touchdown season where he also caught 29 passes for 290 yards.
Defensively, it looks like senior linebacker Josh Hartigan’s team. Although he spent some of the spring training season with an ankle injury, he is actually one of the healthier defensive Buffs. The major issue of the defense will be the backs situation, which returns four starters from last season. Unfortunately, those four ranked 110th in the nation for the unit. It might be a while before Embree creates a team of his players, but if Colorado fans have any worries, at least they know he’s trying to model this team of his after a championship-caliber memory of the Buff’s best days.
2010 Colorado Football Preview
Colorado coach Dan Hawkins has had a rough four years and has led the Buffaloes to a dismal 16-33 during that time, with only one bowl appearance. In his fifth year, Hawkins and a veteran group of returning players look to right the ship.
The quarterback position is up for grabs heading into the season. Junior Tyler Hansen and senior Cody Hawkins will be battling for the starting job after splitting time last year. However, unless the offensive line can improve from last year, it may not matter who's under center.
The Buffaloes allowed 44 sacks in 2009 and averaged only 2.8 yards per carry. Colorado does boast a solid receiving corps, lead by senior Scotty McKnight.
There are question marks on defense as well. While three starters in the secondary return, lead by corner back Jimmy Smith, there is lack of experience at linebacker. Defensive coordinator Ron Collins' squad will have to be better than last year's, as they ended up second-to-last in the Big 12 in scoring defense.
Unless Hawkins can show significant improvement on last year's 3-9 disaster, his job will certainly be in jeopardy. Although he has talented players in some areas, it may be difficult for this team to break through in a difficult conference.
2009 Colorado Football Preview
The Colorado Buffaloes head into 2009 with hopes to improve upon a 5-7 record from 2008. CU Head Coach Dan Hawkins will once again hand the keys to the offense to his son, Cody. If father & son Hawkins can get the offense clicking and better production out of the defense, then the Buffs could make some waves in the Big 12 North.
2008 Colorado Football Preview
The Colorado Buffaloes football program always fields a tough team every year and this next season will be no different. The Buffaloes play in the Big 12 North Division, competing with the historically tough teams from Nebraska and Kansas State, and also from the upstart contenders at Kansas and Missouri. This puts Colorado in one of the toughest conference divisions in the nation, and they always make an impact. In 2007, the Buffaloes managed to dash any national title hopes for Oklahoma by stunning the #3 ranked Sooners 27-24. Look for the Buffaloes to build on that confidence-inspiring win and vie for top honors in the Big 12 North this year.
