CU mentioned as one of 6 sleepers that could spoil the College Football Playoff race.
Colorado (6-2): In one of this season’s most surprising stories, the long-dormant Buffs are alone in first place in the Pac-12 South (4-1). They’ll likely be favored in all four remaining games, given UCLA, Washington State and Utah all come to Boulder (where CU has thus far outscored its opponents 143-29). And the defensively stingy Buffs have allowed just 44 points over their past four games.
All of which is a long way of saying, if Washington makes it to Santa Clara, it may face a 10-2 Colorado team.
