Sean Mannion vs. Colorado's secondary Next » 1 of 10 « Prev
Colorado feels good about its 2-0 start, but it is yet to prove anything. For the first time this season, the Buffs' much improved secondary defense will be tested this Saturday against Oregon State.

Sean Mannion, as Utah found out firsthand, is no joke. His prolific passing game ranks him second in the nation in passing yards, averaging 401 yards per game. He has completed 71 percent of his pass attempts and thrown for 15 touchdowns through four games.

Colorado will face another challenge in this game as well. The Buffaloes haven't played a game in 20 days. Two weeks ago, flooding forced Colorado to postpone a contest against Fresno and last week was the Buffaloes' bye week.

The whole PAC12 has improved immensely save OSU. The rest of the season should be fun to watch. I am hoping that the Huskies climb to the top this year.

Agreed Steve, except for the Huskie part. A lot of people are saying that the PAC-12 is quickly closing the gap with the SEC to become the top conference in college football and it's easy to see why. There are no patsies in the league this year, even Colorado looks dangerous.
