The Colorado Buffaloes will take on the Charleston Southern Buccaneers from the FCS on Saturday, but they won’t be taking the game lightly. The Buffaloes have struggled the past three weeks — losing 44-17 to Oregon State, 57-16 to Oregon, and 54-13 to Arizona State — while the Buccaneers are ranked 24th in the FCS and are undefeated on the season.
Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre recently talked about Charleston Southern, comparing them favorably with the Central Arkansas team Colorado beat by 14 earlier this season:
They run an option offense out of the gun. Kind of like a pistol option offense; more veer related and speed-option related. The quarterback (Daniel Crogan III) can throw it pretty good, too.
This team is a really good football team. They’re a better football team than Central Arkansas and that was a heck of a football game (Buff Zone).
Charleston Southern is the team that volunteered to play the Buffaloes after Colorado’s scheduled game against Fresno State was canceled due to terrible flooding in September.
