As for the Colorado Buffaloes, they’re coming off of two straight losses, but what’s even more concerning is that they’ve dropped five of their last six contests—the only win coming against the Charleston Southern Buccaneers.
The Colorado Buffaloes are desperate for a Pac-12 victory. They’re 0-5 in conference competition, and they’re going to need an impressive showing in Week 11 if they hope to come away triumphant against the Washington Huskies on the road.
At this point, there’s little you can say to cheer up fans in Boulder, Colo. Their passing game is 54th in the nation, which puts them in the middle of the road, but their rushing game has only been good enough to barely crack the top 100.
They’re not putting the ball in the end zone (78th in the FBS in scoring) and they’re certainly not stopping their opponents from scoring (117th in the nation in points allowed).
The truth is that Washington is a huge favorite, and it is a huge favorite for a reason.
A Colorado win is as unlikely as it comes, so the question is simply, can the Huskies cover the enormous spread they’ve been given entering the competition?
At this point in the year, the Huskies are winning their games by an average point margin of 10.9 points per contest. That number hardly screams for a 28-point victory (the spread in this matchup), but then again, Washington did manage to take down the California Golden Bears 41-17 in their last outing.
Against Cal, Bishop Sankey and Keith Price led the way. Price threw for 336 yards and two touchdowns, while Sankey tallied a career high in rushing yards with 241 on the night—not to mention two scores of his own.
These two had a field day against a broken Cal defense, and they’ll look to do the same to a Colorado team that is giving up more than 38 points per game.
Not only is Colorado 1-4 straight up in its last five matchups with Washington, it is 1-4 ATS as well. The Huskies are 6-1 SU in their last seven games at home, but they’re also 8-2 ATS in their last 10 at Husky Stadium.
All signs point to a victory for the home team, and taking it one step further, all signs point to a blowout. The Huskies are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 versus a team with a losing record, and the Buffaloes are a lowly 6-17 ATS in their last 23 against winning programs.
Prediction: Washington 47 – Colorado 14
