2. Can Liufau bounce back?
The Pac-12 championship game could not have gone much worse for CU senior quarterback Sefo Liufau. Two interceptions early in the third quarter, a stretch that began when the Buffs were trailing just 14-7, cost CU any hope at a league title. Liufau injured an ankle on the first drive of that game and never looked right. With the time off to recover, he should be ready to go physically against the Cowboys. If he plays like the quarterback who protected the ball for the large majority of the season, he’ll give the Buffs every chance to leave San Antonio with a cherished bowl victory.
