Two teams from PAC 12 will be facing off when the Colorado Buffaloes visit the Oregon Ducks.
Colorado is coming off of a loss and Oregon is coming off of a win.
Oregon started off as 26.5 point favorites and that number has gone down to 24. Most totals I have seen are at 49, but there are a few that show 48.5.
Colorado has really struggled this year. This is not that surprising because this is a team that really did not have that high of expectations.
The Buffaloes lost last Saturday to California by a score of 26-3. It is hard to win a game when all you score is a field goal.
Quarterback Brendon Lewis was not good in the loss to the Bears. He was 9/17 for 69 yards and 1 interception.
The running game never got established last week. Jarek Broussard was the leading rusher with only 28 yards on 11 carries.
The defense has not been the main issue for this team so far. It is just hard to win ball games when your offense consistently does not put up a lot of points.
The #7 team in the nation has played very well so far this year. Their only blemish so far was the loss to Stanford. I still feel they could give most teams a run for their money. I view this squad as a true college football playoff contender.
Oregon picked up a big win against UCLA last Saturday by a score of 34-31. Fans of the Ducks feared that they would blow another lead, but they held on and got the victory.
In the win against the Bruins, Anthony Brown was 29/39 for 296 yards and 2 interceptions. He will look to be a little sharper in this game with the Buffaloes.
Brown was the leading rusher a week ago with 6 carries for 85 yards. The leading receiver was Devon Williams who had 5 receptions for 80 yards. I am sure he will get lots of targets on Saturday.
The defense did get shredded against UCLA, but this unit has been good overall throughout the year. I expect them to have a big day against an offense of Colorado that is not explosive at all.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick
This is a matchup between two teams that are going in totally opposite directions.
With that said, I do not trust Oregon laying the 24, so I will go with the Buffaloes getting the points.
4* Free Week 9 NCAA Betting Pick:
Don’t get me wrong, I think Oregon will win this game rather handily. If they don’t, there is an issue.
If you are the Ducks, there is no excuse to lose to the Buffaloes. They are the much better team.
I expect Oregon to score a fair share of points in this one, but I could see the Buffaloes keeping it within that number. Remember, Oregon has not been a great team against the spread and they are laying a very high number.
My play is Colorado +24 here.
