BOULDER — In the first eight quarters of the season, the Colorado Buffaloes' offense produced 10 touchdowns and four field goals.
In the last eight quarters of regulation play, the Buffs' offense has scored three touchdowns and two field goals.
With high-scoring No. 8 Southern California coming to Boulder on Saturday for a 10 a.m. matchup at Folsom Field (Fox), the 3-1 Buffs know they need to return to that early season form. The key will be providing more consistent protection for quarterback Shedeur Sanders and improving a run game that is currently averaging 55.
