By-The-Numbers: CU

By-The-Number is back, baby! It's that classic matchup again when you look strictly at the digits: The irresistible force meets the immovable object. Or in this case that means the Colorado offense versus the Washington defense. Who wins out? We saw what the Dawg D did to an even better offense on the road at Cal, but can they duplicate that feat versus Ralphie and the Buffaloes?
