Huge statistical edge for CO in this game.

Based on adjusted stats, USC's win last week may have not been all that impressive afterall.
CU is a full 1.5 yards per play better than USC in adjusted Yards Per Play statistics and more than 3 yards better than ASU. This is huge.

Yard Per Play (Adjusted for Competition)

CU Offense: 7.014 (ranked # 11 in nation)
CU Defense: 4.727 (Ranked # 17 in nation)

ASU Offense: 5.398 (Ranked # 76 in nation)
ASU Defense: 6.36 (Ranked # 99 in nation)

USC Offense: 6.514 (Ranked # 32 in the nation)
USC Defense: 5.695 (Ranked # 64 in the nation)

Oregon Offense: 7.381 (Ranked # 7 in the nation)
Oregon Defense: 5.604 (Ranked # 55 in the nation)

Oregon State Offense: 4.407 (Ranked # 117 in the nation)
Oregon State Defense: 4.765 (Ranked # 19 in nation.

CU clobbered a much better defense in Oregon State. So, the 500 + yards against ASU does not necessarily mean their team has turned the corner.

Go Buffs!
