CU coach Mike MacIntyre said he and his staff have been preparing a game plan for Colorado State but the team hasn't started working on it in the same intense way it will during game week.

It's likely the Buffs will begin installing that game plan today now that practices are closed to the media and the public.

"We'll bring it to the field pretty quick," MacIntyre said. "A lot of the stuff we've been doing we're going to do in the game of course. You can't just put in a play and say, 'Hey, this will work like magic.'"
