Game-by-game predictions for Colorado’s 2022 schedule per ESPN’s FPI

·2 min read

A lot can still change over the next month and a half, but preseason college football projections aren’t expecting much from the 2022 Colorado Buffaloes. Many outlets have them winning about 3-4 games in Karl Dorrell’s third season at the helm.

ESPN released its FPI (Football Power Index) prediction for every game on the Buffs’ schedule and as we could’ve guessed, CU isn’t favored to win too often. At least underdogs are easy to root for. And if you’re curious, the FPI system is about 75% accurate, although games are not played on a computer.

Below is what ESPN’s FPI believes Colorado’s chances are at winning each of its 12 regular season games:
