The (0-0) Colorado Buffaloes of the PAC-Twelve South Division will travel to the “ISLAND OF OAHU” to take on the (0-0) Hawaii Warriors of the Mountian West, West Division in 2015 NCAA Football action. The teams will play on Thursday, September 3rd, 2015 at 11:59 PM EST. The 2015 Colorado Buffaloes have upgraded their facilities to attract recruits and expected to get into a bowl game this season. Lofty expectations for a team that went 2-10 overall last season. The Hawaii Warriors will kick off their 40th season playing home games at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Warriors travel across the country to face number-one-ranked. Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday, September 12th. The opening betting line has Hawaii as a seven and a half-point Home Underdog Against The Spread. The betting odds total is 57-points for Thursday’s game.
The 2015 Colorado Buffaloes are optimistic coming into the season. Colorado is picked to finish last again in the South Division of the Conference. Junior quarterback Sefo Liufau has a game breaker in wideout Nelson Spruce and the running attack is solid with Christian Powell. First Year and former South Florida head coach Jim Leavitt brings credibility and experience as the new CU defensive coordinator. The program is heading in the right direction, but lofty expectations may be overstating the teams talent. However Boulder, Colorado has the potential of attracting five-star recruits. Third-year head coach Mike Macintyre has to understand he is on a short leash. The program is still in rebuilding mode, but the offense has a productive passing attack. The problem is that the rest of the South Division is loaded. The Colorado Buffaloes could get off to a great start with their first four games. The Buffaloes host Massachusetts and Nicholls State, sandwiched in between is their annual showdown vs. Colorado State in Denver. The Buffaloes begin Conference play in October, and there is a chance they could go 0-8 in the PAC-12. Colorado also doesn’t have the luxury of having a bye-week in 2015, so no time for healing injuries that will hurt. The Athletic Department is trying to keep up with the elite programs in the conference with upgraded facilities. How does Colorado sound as a 7′-point road favorite ATS to start the season? Not a sexy bet in a totally different time zone.
The 2015 Hawaii Warriors are in a similar position, picked to finish last in the Mountain West, West Division. Head Coach and offensive “GURU” Norm Chow needs another season to implement his system fully. Chow has been successful as an offensive coordinator at the College and NFL level. Seven starters return on the offensive side of the football. The Warriors will run a fast-paced offense and USC transfer Max Wittek is the perfect fit. The Warriors played well in their 21-14, 2014 loss at Boulder. Chow expects his team to put more points on the scoreboard on Thursday. Quarterback Wittek is the key! Chow reminds the faithful in Honolulu it was Wittek that shredded the USC defense as a scout team quarterback. Chow say’s publicly the 6-4 Wittek reminds him of Carson Palmer. It could be a statement to boost team confidence. Tight End Tui Unga will catch plenty of passes on check downs. The Hawaii offense is in good hands, and the defense showed improvement in 2014. Seven starters return this season. New defensive coordinator Tom Mason will attack more.
