Blackout for Buffs and Bulldogs

The 1990 national championship team is on hand for Colorado and wide receiver A.J. Green returns for Georgia. Both programs should get a boost in a pivotal blackout game at Folsom Field.

Here are a few things to watch in tonight's game:

Which quarterback makes more plays?

Tyler Hansen and Aaron Murray are similar players. Both have an ability to make plays on the run and by themselves time.

Murray has been more careful with the ball so far this season with five touchdown passes and only two interceptions. He is a redshirt freshman playing in his fifth college game.

Hansen, like the rest of his teammates, plays his best football at Folsom Field and has raised his completion percentage by nearly 10 points this season over last year. He needs to avoid the turnovers.

Both teams have been slow starters recently. Who will avoid doing that tonight?

Georgia has allowed a touchdown on the opening drive in each of its past three games. Colorado has scored only seven points in the first quarter so far this year.

Both teams come in with solid run defenses, at least statistically speaking. Both faced teams in Hawaii and Arkansas that pass the ball much more than they run. If one teams finds it easier to move the ball on the ground, it could make a big difference.

Who wins the kicking game?

Georgia definitely has more consistency on its side. Colorado can't afford to leave points on the field with more missed field goals.
