The Colorado Buffaloes looked great in their season opener and had no problem scoring against UCLA, which includes winning outright as a touchdown underdog. The Stanford Cardinal didn't have the easiest debut with a road contest against a top-15 Oregon team, but they also had major issues defensively and weren't a disciplined team with 100 yards in penalties. It's a small sample size and we'll know more about these teams as the season plays out, but I'm not sure how you leave a full touchdown plus the hook on the table with Colorado. Stanford isn't the team it was years ago and Colorado has been a program that's improved greatly over the last five seasons.
Give me the Colorado Buffaloes and the points.
