The Colorado Buffs have surprised some folks this year early in Big 12 Conference play. The Buffs opened the conference season with a 13-point victory over the Missouri Tigers. Considering they were ranked ninth in the country at the time, that's an impressive win.
So then the Kansas State Wildcats host the Buffs and....Colorado wins again. That's two straight wins against ranked teams to kick off the conference season. Colorado made it a hat trick by beating Oklahoma State in Boulder last week and their fans were ready for more.
Woody Paige of the Denver Post relays this message from the fans during last Saturday's victory over Oklahoma State:
At the conclusion, the chant from the stands was: "We want Kansas." The Jayhawks will be here for the next home game Jan. 25.
Mark it down, Buffs. With the way Kansas has allowed teams to stay close lately, maybe that's a good game.
