Coach Mike MacIntyre is looking for better results from his football team and one area that undoubtedly has his attention is third down.
The Buffs have fallen to 115th in the nation this week in third-down-conversion percentage on offense. They are coverting just 28 percent of the time on third down, which means far too many three-and-outs.
On the flip side, the CU defense has been pretty good when it gets to third down. The Buffs are ranked 35th nationally, allowing opponents to convert only 35 percent of the time. Now the defense needs to stop giving up big plays and force opponents into more third-down situations.
