Minnesota Football: RoWINg to Colorado - Opponent Preview

The Minnesota Golden Gophers (1-1) hit the road this week and head to Boulder for a Power 5 non-conference matchup with the Colorado Buffaloes (1-1), who are coming off a near upset of No. 5-ranked Texas A&M that suggests the Gophers will have their hands full on Saturday.

Can Colorado score on offense?

The Buffaloes lost starting quarterback J.T. Shrout to a knee injury during preseason camp, reducing their options under center to redshirt freshman Brendon Lewis and true freshman Drew Carter. Lewis got the starting nod and has not been asked to do much, posting anemic numbers against FCS Northern Colorado (10-for-15, 105 passing yards, 1 touchdown) and Texas A&M (13-of-25, 89 passing yards, 1 interception).
