Two teams from the PAC 12 will be battling each other when the Colorado Buffaloes visit the UCLA Bruins. The kickoff is set for 9:00 ET.
Colorado is coming off of a win and UCLA is coming off of a bye week.
The Bruins opened up as 14 point favorites and that number is now up to 17. I have seen the total change a little bit, but it has mostly stayed right around 57 points.
There are some good teams in the PAC-12, but Colorado is not one of them. They just simply have not played consistently well this year, but that has not come to the surprise of many folks.
The Buffaloes beat the Oregon State Beavers last week by a score of 37-34 in OT. That was a good win for this program and they will look to build off of that when they go up against the Bruins.
Against Oregon State, Brendon Lewis looked good. He finished the day 15/20 for 174 yards with 3 touchdown passes.
This team made it clear that they wanted to run the football a week ago and they did it very well. Jarek Broussard ran the ball 24 times for 151 yards. I am sure he will get plenty of touches this week.
The defense has really not been all that great for this team and they have really struggled the last two weeks. They allowed 52 points to Oregon before the game against Oregon State.
UCLA is one of many teams at the moment that just has name recognition. People know them for what they have done in the past, but the reality is they are not that special of a team.
This team last played on October 30th when they lost to the Utah Utes by a score of 44-22. Look, Utah is a solid team, but you cannot lose by that many points to them. Let us see how they do against Colorado coming out of the bye week.
In the last game they played, quarterback Ethan Garbers was 27/44 for 265 yards with 2 touchdown passes and 1 pick. He will look to have a good day against a defense in Colorado that has been struggling.
Zach Charbonnet was the leading rusher against the Utes with 11 carries for 65 yards. The leading receiver was Kyle Phillips who had 7 receptions for 86 yards. There is no way around it, this offense needs to be much better when they go against the Buffaloes on Saturday.
The defense has not been great this year, but I do feel they can be better against Colorado. There is no excuse for this unit to not play well given how much trouble the Buffaloes have had on offense this year.

Free Week 11 NCAA Football Pick
UCLA needs to get back on track after that loss to Utah and I feel confident that they will.
I like UCLA at -17 here.
4* Free Week 11 NCAA Betting Pick:
The Buffaloes are a team that the Bruins have to beat rather handily. Sure, UCLA may not be great, but Colorado is not even close to being on the same level as them.
Colorado has been more scoring a bit more as of late, but I still do not trust them to match UCLA score for score. I look for the defense of the Bruins to keep them in check throughout the game.
I could see this being the type of game where the Bruins gradually take over and the next thing you know they’re up by a lot. I just have very little confidence backing Colorado here.
Give me UCLA laying the 17 here.
