    For some reason I think SDSU is going to get up for that game. But I think your list is pretty accurate for the most part. I would agree with it.

    I am glad we play Mizzou, Kansas and A&M all at home. That A&M game should be a slobberknocker.

    I think Nebraska will be tougher than Ok St and Colorado. Callahan always had talent but the players just went through the motions. I think Bo will have them fired up and playing hard. Because if they don't he'll find someone who will. Colorado has talent but it is young and unproven yet. I think they will be good. And Ok State is always underachieving. I don't know if the players are still going to play for the coach anymore either. He's on the hot seat. They could tank if the year starts poorly for them.


    I'm kind of a big deal!

    South Dakota State
    Kent State
    UNLV
    Baylor
    Kansas State
    Texas A&M
    Nebraska
    Iowa
    Oklahoma State
    Colorado
    Kansas
    Mizzou

    I don't see us making a whole lot of hay on the road, so I really don't think we'll beat Iowa, OSU, or CU. I think KSU and BU will be extremely tough.

    Here's a little bit of trivia for you - In the last 6 years we've won 4 road games. One at Iowa, one at BU, one at A&M, and one at KSU.

    I don't think any road game is a gimmie. Some of those road games look pretty tough to me even though I wouldn't put the opponent as one of our better ones. That changed my list up a bit.

    In 2005 we also beat Army.

    My bad, 5 in 6 years then. I was mostly looking at Big 12 games then I remembered we beat Iowa on the road in 2002.
