The Colorado Buffaloes will look to move to 4-0 for the first time since 1998 when they host the 0-3 UCLA Bruins on Friday night.

Despite their records, tonight’s battle between the Colorado Buffaloes and UCLA Bruins is highly anticipated for Buffs fans. CU hasn’t reeled off four consecutive wins to open a season since 1998–not even their 2016 season when they won the Pac-12 South.

As a Buff fan, I tend to make bold, or some would say crazy, predictions before the game–and tonight is no different. Here are five BOLD predictions that could happen tonight, maybe?

1. Steven Montez throws for 400 yards and 3 TD’s

Montez has developed into one of the Pac-12’s best quarterbacks. He understands the high-tempo offensive system the Buffs run and with elite playmakers at running back and receiver, he knows he doesn’t have to do it all for CU to succeed.
