The Buffaloes won four games last year, their first season under new head coach Mike MacIntyre, three more than in their 1-11 campaign of 2012. However, the number of victories against Big 5 conference schools remained the same – one.
Coach MacIntyre got results at San Jose State, but it took about a season and a half for things to click. This year Colorado, with a season's worth of learning curve under its belt, gets several winnable games early, before the big boys of the Pac-12 pop up in October and November. The Buffs will be better, but can they get to six wins?
