The 2012 season was one of the worst in recent memory for the Colorado Buffaloes as they finished with a 1-11 record and fired their head coach Jon Embree. They introduced former San Jose St coach Mike McIntyre who has experience in dire situations. The San Jose St Spartans came very close to losing their football program but McIntyre came in and turned a 1-12 club to a respectable 10-2 record in the 2012 season. The Buffaloes could not win a game on their home field last year. This Buffaloes team is experienced with eight starters back on offense and nine to their defense. They played Colorado St tough last year losing a hard fought 22-17 decision to the Rams. The benefit for the Buffaloes is they got a head coach who has fought this battle which is elevating a laughing stock into a respected team. Colorado St after defeating Colorado last year they went on to lose their six games to fall to 1-6. Bowl elimination came early for the Rams after game nine of the season in a loss to Wyoming that dropped the club to 2-7. The team won three games late in the season but beat pitiful opponents in Hawaii, UNLV and New Mexico. This Colorado St team has struggled big time for points having averaged no more than 21 points per game over their past three seasons.
