        It will be a significant improvement for the Bruins if they beat the Bearcats and Aztecs (who I believe both beat UCLA last season)

          Especially since it seems that Josh Kelley is day to day with a knee injury.  Those OOC games will be a rough ride for them if he’s not healthy.

        I almost picked them to lose to TX Tech, but then I remembered Matt Wells . . . The Hawaii game will be a shootout but I think Arizona has more firepower.

        UCLA could lose either of those, especially SDSU, but I think the Bruins are going to surprise some people with how well they perform this year.

        CU beat Nebraska in Lincoln last year. This is Nebraska’s return visit. Can’t see any reason why CU won’t beat them in Boulder.

          Colorado did win in Lincoln, but they just barely won it right at the very end.

          Colorado and Nebraska are two programs headed in different directions.

          Colorado started last year 5-0 then lost 7 straight to end the year. Nebraska started last year 0-6 then finished the year 4-2. The Huskers will be better this year. The Buffs? Not so much.

        No way! The Devils barely beat them in Tempe last year, and that was with Harry and Wilkins. On the road, and without two of their 3 best offensive players? Sparty wins this comfortably.

          Yup, didn’t they also have the best rushing defense in the country last year.  Don’t know who they lost to graduation or the draft, but it will be a tall task to rely on Eno Benjamin to beat them.  Plus they’re likely starting a freshman quarterback who shall not be named.  Like @utethunder says, no Manny Wilkins and no N’Keal Harry stacks the odds heavily against ASU.

            Sparty has a killer defense this year.  If (big if) they even have an average offense they could win the BIG10.

              Isn’t their QB a pretty good dual threat as well?  I don’t know anything about their skill positions, but he seemed solid, not great, but solid.

                Yea, he’s back. Media seems to love him but results where pretty sad last year.

                BIG10 is wide open…would not be suprized if NEB makes a run.
