I'll just rip and read FF's post.

LINCOLN, NEB. | 2:30 P.M. (CT)

BROADCAST INFO

BUFFALOES
Last Game: def. Colorado State, 45-13
Coach: Mike MacIntyre
Career/Colorado Record: 42-59 (9th Year)/26-38 (6th Year) vs. Nebraska: 3-5

Nebraska-Colorado Series
Nebraska and Colorado are familiar foes with Saturday's meeting the 70th all-time between the schools, but the first since 2010. Nebraska holds a 49-18-2 all-time edge in the series, including a 26-8 mark in Lincoln.

• Nebraska and Colorado met each season from 1948 to 2010, as members of the Big Seven, Big Eight and Big 12 Conferences.

• From 1996 to 2010, the Huskers and Buffs concluded the regular season against each other on Black Friday. Nebraska held an 11-4 edge in the series during that time period.

• Nebraska and Colorado combined to win the final eight Big Eight championships from 1988 to 1995.

• Nebraska and Colorado will play in Boulder in 2019 (Sept. 7) and the teams will also have a home-and-home in 2023 (Boulder) and 2024 (Lincoln).

Nebraska has Long History of Battling Pac-12 Foes
Nebraska’s meeting with Colorado continues a tradition of playing marquee non-conference games against Pac-12 opponents. Since 1983, Nebraska has played 32 regular-season non-conference games against teams that were in the Pac-12 at game time.

• Nebraska is 23-9 against the Pac-12 in regular season games since 1983. In that stretch, NU is 6-1 vs. Arizona State, 5-3 vs. UCLA, 3-1 vs. Oregon, 2-0 vs. California, 4-2 vs. Washington, 2-0 vs. Oregon State, 1-0 vs. Washington State and 0-2 vs. USC. The record against Pac-12 foes does not include conference games against Colorado in that time frame.

• Nebraska has also played five bowl games against Pac-12 teams in that time period, going 2-3 in those games.

• Nebraska played at least one non-conference game against a Pac-12 foe for 17 straight seasons from 1983 to 1999.

Youth Dominates NU Roster
Nebraska's 135-player roster features 50 newcomers who were not on last year's roster, including 38 true freshmen and 12 transfers (6 junior college transfers, 4 FBS transfers and 2 FCS transfers).

• Nearly two-thirds of the squad is comprised of underclassmen, as 89 of the Huskers’ 135 players are either freshmen or sophomores.

• Of the 25 players on the offensive depth chart, 16 are underclassmen and seven are newcomers.

• Of the 27 players on the defensive depth chart, 11 are underclassmen and six are newcomers.

COACHING CONNECTIONS: Both Colorado and Nebraska have an assistant coach on their current staffs who once worked at the other school.

CU outside linebackers coach and special teams coordinator Ross Els worked at NU from 2011-14 under Bo Pelini. Meanwhile, current Nebraska offensive coordinator Troy Walters worked at Colorado as MacIntyre's receivers coach from 2013-15.

It's the kind of matchup that reminds me of the first time Nebraska played Penn St. as a member of the B1G.   Despite the home/home series in 02/03 or whatever,  it's like 'Where have you been, old foe?'

Are there any Buff fans lurking on the Pac board?

This was a top-5 rivalry game when I was growing up in the early 90s - great to see them playing again.

I heard that CU's passing game looked pretty sharp against CSU...but CSU is going to be terrible this year, so IDK what that's worth. Its game experience though. 

I really have no feel for this game, at all. I think NU has to survive CO's edge in experience for the first half, and stay close enough to make a go of it in the 4th.

I've made a few mistakes.
But, it wasn't a mistake to stay home last Saturday.
I'll be in Lincoln for this one against Ralphie.  Probably in the Haymarket at Buzzard Billy's around 4-5 for Happy hour Friday afternoon.

The only Buffs fan I recall on "this" board was back in 2000-2003 or so. He was a good guy but I haven't seen him since about then. He and I went back and forth when UW and UC were set to play in the Alamo Bowl. It didn't quite turn out like he expected (Colorado running wild on the Badgers). :)

I have no idea what to expect from UNL... while CU doesn't have film on the huskers this year, they do have a game under their belt.   UNL has new systems/schemes which will be prone to mistakes (just natural) and guys will still be figuring things out 3-4 games into the season as new twist are thrown at them.   The muscle memory or fundamental "this is what I do now" will take some time for both the individual and team.   You need games to work it out. 

 Game experience>>lack of film.  I'm leaning towards a CU win.

Colorado has Ross Els coaching their LBs and STs.

I haven't looked at the box, but I know they were -3 on turnovers,  gave up two 3rd and longer than 17s, and then the stupid penalty on 3rd and a mile.   OL had some breakdowns, I know the Center went out early.   Looked like a first game of the season, which certainly didn't help.  CU made some nice adjustments against the run in the 2nd half.

On the upside, Martinez, hoping he's not a turnover machine, shows a lot of positives.  More of a mustang instead of the crotch rocket that T. Martinez was.   I like the running backs, though Bell was oblivious to some big holes in the first half.   Martinez going down leaving walk on Bunch holding the bag in the final minutes wasn't helpful, but that's the hand Nebraska has to play.

CU WR #2 is a stud.   That's not a bad team at all.  I said Nebraska has 8 win talent, but 5 win experience.   They are going to have some thin margins this season.
