Colorado faces a quick turnaround and a long trip to Toledo that don't give the Buffaloes much time to fix what went wrong in its season opening loss against Colorado State on Sunday.

Colorado will stick with quarterback Cody Hawkins on Friday even though the offense did little right in the opener.

The most pressing issue is getting the running game going.

Colorado had just 29 yards rushing in the loss to Colorado State.

Buffaloes coach Dan Hawkins says his offensive line needs to get better. He says he did notice they improved in the second half last week and hopes that carries over against Toledo.

The Rockets are coming off a 52-31 loss at Purdue. Quarterback Aaron Opelt threw for 423 yards in the loss.
