Why You Should Love Colorado Tonight
The biggest game of the last decade for Penn State kicks off tomorrow night, but don’t forget about tonight’s matchup between No. 4 Washington and No. 9 Colorado.
The obvious reason is the College Football Playoff implications the game has for the Nittany Lions. With a loss, Washington’s fall would likely elevate Penn State to the final field of four if the Lions can beat Wisconsin tomorrow.
But the Buffaloes’ story is a remarkable one; after suffering through a 4-9 season (which included going 1-8 in Pac-12 play), Mike MacIntyre and his program sit at 10-2 after flipping the script and going 8-1 against conference opponents for a chance to take home the Pac-12 crown.
It’s an uplifting story that could culminate in a Rose Bowl berth for Colorado and a Playoff berth for the Lions if the Buffaloes take care of business in San Fransisco tonight at 9 p.m. Penn State can only focus on what it can control against Wisconsin, but tonight’s result could kick the door wide open for an opening in the Playoff.
The game will broadcasted on FOX with Joe Davis and Brady Quinn on the call. Here’s how to check out tonight’s action.
