When Ok­la­homa State runs

The Denver Post - - SPORTS - Edge: Colorado

The Cow­boys have an im­pres­sive run­ning back in fresh­man Jus­tice Hill out of Tulsa, Okla., who ran for 1,042 yards in his de­but sea­son with OSU. That num­ber ranks third among all FBS fresh­men. Se­nior Chris Car­son is a pow­er­ful back who has rushed for a team-high eight touch­downs and 498 yards. CU fin­ished fifth in the Pac-12 in rush­ing de­fense at 145.8 yards per game, though the Buffs are com­ing off a per­for­mance against Wash­ing­ton in which they gave up 265 yards on the ground. Still, CU has shown it can slow pre­mier backs, such as Stan­ford’s Chris­tian McCaf­frey and Utah’s Joe Wil­liams. Edge: Colorado
