To answer your question, I think both


I see 3 benefits to playing at home for CU

1) Crowd - CU Events center is loud in big games
2) Altitude - not sure how big of advantage it is
3) Mountain pairs (CU/Utah) road trip is more difficult that other road trips ... in particular traveling for the second game (SLC -> Boulder) or (Boulder->SLC) is probably longer and tougher than any of the other pairs travel.

So I guess what I am saying is this year the teams that typically have the best home court advantage due to crowds (Arizona, Oregon, Colorado, Utah)? will lose more games at home than usual due to not having the same crowd advantage and teams that have poor home court advantages (USC, Stanford, Cal) should have better overall win percentages.

At least that is my theory.
