It's still super early, but Colorado-Oregon is shaking out exactly as one would expect. Before Colorado even ran an offensive play, Oregon was up two touchdowns. The first came on a five play, 57-yard touchdown drive that took about a minute and a half. Then Colorado fumbled the kickoff, which Oregon turned into a touchdown three plays later. So in 2:32, Oregon raced out to a 14-0 lead.
Colorado finally did get the ball and was able to run a play from scrimmage, which is a plus. And the Buffs even got a first down! Then this happened:
Three different penalties by Colorado, on the same play: Holding, blocking below the waist, chop block. Never seen that.— Rob Moseley (@DuckFootball) October 27, 2012
So, I mean ... yeah. This is probably going to be a bloodbath. If you're planning on watching it, maybe send the kids to another room. They don't need to see this kind of violence.
