Colorado is looking to prove they are the second best team in the PAC 12 South in this one. They probably can’t afford another league loss.
UCLA is also coming off a loss. They were right there on the road with Stanford but couldn’t keep up. Man is their defense bad, it makes them really hard to back.
It was a rematch of the PAC 12 title game a year ago and it went very similarly with Washington beating Colorado with ease.
The loss was pretty easy to evaluate. QB Stephen Montez threw three picks and they gave up more than 200 yards rushing to Myles Gaskin. Those numbers are hard to overcome.
Fortunately for Colorado the Bruins do not have much of a running game or defense so they should be better able to keep this one within reach and maybe even upset on the road.
It is shocking how bad the Bruins are on defense and it is probably going to get the current team leadership fired. They were crushed at Stanford last week.
Stanford loves to run the ball and run some more but even they could not have expected to put up 400 yards on the ground. Bryce Love was up to 263 and they got more than 100 yards on top of that.
Josh Rosen loves to wing the ball around but for all his arm talent he makes mistakes. Colorado is capable of making him pay for that and they have an RB that could also go off.

It is really hard to know what this UCLA team is. It would not be the first group to have an NFL quarterback surrounded by not much else.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Colorado +7
I think the more this line is out there the more investment there will be in Colorado. Look for this number to dip below 7 for sure.
Still I think Colorado is the right side. They can definitely play a little defense and their own offense should be able to run right through UCLA, controlling the clock on their way to an upset win.
