Gotta hand it to the Golden Buffaloes ... they consistently play OOC schedules that are tough as NAILS ...
Over time, they play the toughset schedules anywhere. Dating from the early 70s
, they've played
home-and-homes with a who's who of colege football elite including:
Washington (4 or 5 games)
Texas (2 or 3 times before the Big XII)
UCLA (5 or 6 games)
Notre Dame (83 and 84, plus 2 Orange Bowls and a Fiesta)
LSU (5 or 6 games)
Miami (6 or 7 games in 30 years ... they're in Boulder in 08 or 09)
Georgia (just added - starts this year)
Ohio State (71, 85, 86 ... plus the 78 Orange Bowl)
Florida State (current - they're in Boulder in 2007)
Arizona State (starts this year)
North Carolina (starts in 2 years)
Even in the glorious undefeated 11-0 season of 1989 .... Colorado played 3 Top 20 teams OOC ... TEXAS, WASHINGTON and ILLINOIS.
I dare you ... show me a team with more balls than that.
(go forward and back, year by year)
