Wazzu is still fairly one dimensional.

They are a still a team that passes first to setup the run.
There is much talk about how their run game is improved. Yes, it's true, but you have to look at what it has improved from. They are still ranked 112th in the nation in rushing yards per game adjusted for competition. Their Yards Per Carry average, adjusted for competition is ranked 69th. Colorado is ranked 40th and 71st in those same two categories.

Their Average Yards Per Carry is a hair higher than CU, but that's because they only run the ball 37% of the time. CU is almost a flip flop. They run the ball 58% of the time.

Colorado has the more balanced offense and that could serve them well at home.

I like our chances if we can limit their ground game and keep them one-dimensional, passing the ball 63% or more of the time. I see a few turnovers in that scenario and opportunistic defense and offense will take advantage.
