Neither Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre nor Oregon State coach Mike Riley are sure what they'll see on Saturday from the Buffaloes.
Colorado won its first two games under new head coach MacIntyre. But then deadly flooding around Boulder earlier this month forced the cancellation of a home game against Fresno State.
The players chipped in with the recovery efforts before a bye week off. As a result, Colorado will have had a 21-day layoff when the Buffaloes take the field against the Beavers on Saturday at Reser Stadium.
MacIntyre has done his best to keep his players focused.
The mystery for Riley is what to expect. Because the Buffaloes have only played two games, there's not a lot of film available to see how Colorado is implementing MacIntyre's system.
