“Number one, the rushing offenses and defenses are surprisingly similar. Both offenses are average, according to S+P, with Colorado gaining less explosive plays per game. On the other side, Oklahoma State is one of the worst teams in the country at allowing explosive rushing plays, while the Buffs are the 25th ranked rushing defense, according to overall S+P (OSU is 77th). That last stat is the biggest difference, and CU will have to rein in Justice Hill to win the game. There is opportunity for Phillip Lindsay to break out on the other side, however.
Number two, the explosiveness of both teams are similar. They give up an above-average number of explosive plays per game, but Oklahoma State is more explosive on offense.”
