Halftime thoughts: Colorado at Air Force

·1 min read

For the most part, that was about what we expected. Air Force did its thing on the ground while the Buffs’ offense had only one solid drive.

Colorado’s second quarter went much better than the first. JT Shrout fumbled the second snap and the Falcons immediately answered with a touchdown. Things seemed primed to only get worse, but the Buffs’ defensive admittedly held their own after that and even forced a pair of fumbles, thanks to Jalen Sami and Trevor Woods. But, the Buffs translated those turnovers into only three total points.

Shrout didn’t play well. He threw for just 28 yards on 3-of-12 passing, including an interception. It’s very possible that Brendon Lewis could get the nod to begin the second half. Colorado’s receivers struggled in the rain and it seemed the Buffs were doing more with the run, anyways —Deion Smith and Alex Fontenot each had 49 yards.

The Buffs will begin the third quarter with a 20-10 deficit kicking off to Air Force.
