Brendan Rice had high hopes for himself and the rest of Colorado’s receivers this year.

Three games into the season, it has been a rough road for that group, as the Buffalo offense has gone through some struggles.

“Very disappointing,” Rice said. “But we’ll get through this together. I’m still proud of this crime. I can’t wait to show the world what we can do and what we’re capable of. It’s only a matter of time.” “

CU (1-2) looks to get their offense on track when they visit Arizona State (2-1) in the Pac-12 opener for both teams Saturday (8:30 p.m., TV: ESPNU).

Freshman quarterback Brendan Lewis has struggled in the first three starts of his career and the Buffs have just 273 passing yards. The Navy is only one of 130 FBS teams that average fewer yards through the air than CU’s 91.0 per game. CU and the three service academies – the Army, Air Force and Navy – have an average team of less than 100 passing yards.

Tight end Brady Russell leads the buff with six catches, while Rice leads the receiver with five catches for 35 yards.

Rice said it’s important for playwrights, who all want more of the ball, to focus on what they can do to help the struggling offense rather than hanging their heads.
