A year ago, the Buffs (8-2) were cellar dwellers in a South Division ruled by Utah. Now they’re two wins away from advancing to the conference championship tilt. Colorado’s only setbacks this season came at Michigan and at USC.

As for WSU (8-2), Mike Leach’s program righted itself beautifully following a 0-2 start. Quarterback Luke Falk ranks second nationally with 361.0 passing yards per contest. Most recently, the junior torched Cal for five touchdowns.

Nonetheless, he won’t have one of his favorite targets for the rest of the campaign. Wideout River Cracraft suffered a torn ACL during the Cougs’ 56-21 triumph over the Golden Bears. Considering Colorado’s top-flight pass defense, the senior’s absence could severely damage the visitors’ prospects in the Centennial State.

At the same time, Leach promises to stick with his usual Air Raid plan. Just don’t underestimate the Buffaloes’ own signal-caller. Sefo Liufau recently had a streak of 152 tosses without an interception, and he should ensure another triumph for the hosts here.
