Colorado travels to the beautiful pacific northwest to take on the Huskies at picturesque Husky Stadium on Saturday afternoon trying to get one back in the win column after falling flat last weekend down in Los Angeles.
Washington too found themselves on the wrong end of the scoreboard after falling in overtime to the Oregon Ducks in Eugene last week. The Huskies are the favorites in this one, and still have a shot at making the Conference Championship Game.
After opening the scoring last week at USC, the Buffs simply fell apart for the remainder of the game. Even when they started to show flashes of positive momentum, a dumb luck penalty snapped them back to the reality that they just simply shot themselves in the foot in that game.
Colorado seemed a bit lame on the offensive side of the ball, only gaining 265 yards of offense in the 60 minute contest. The defense didn’t play all that bad, giving up 334 yards to the Trojans, but it was the penalties and turnover’s that cost the Buffs a chance to hang in the game.
If Colorado wants a chance in this game they will have to get their offense back on track and minimize the unforced errors that plagued them in week 7. Offensively this team is capable of beating the Huskies at home, they come in scoring an average of 34.8 ppg, which is more than double what the Huskies have been given up to opponents.
#15 Washington Huskies
Missed field goals hurt. Missed field goals at the end of regulation that would’ve secured a win hurt even more. Expect the Huskies to come out hungry and go for the kill early against the Buffaloes.
That loss last weekend pretty much slammed the door on the Huskies chance at a Playoff berth, unless we have another major shakeup in the Top 10 again this weekend. But the Huskies can still save their season by winning the Pac-12 and getting to the Rose Bowl once again.
Washington’s only two losses on the year came against fellow Top 25 opponents Auburn and Oregon, while they beat two teams who were previously in the Top 25 in Utah and Arizona State. The Huskies are outscoring their foes by an average of nearly 13 ppg, I would expect that to continue in this game Saturday.

Free Week 8 NCAA Football Pick
Washington has a bone to pick after losing that close game last week and losing their chance at getting back to the College Football Playoff again this year. Look for them to come out angry, and shove the Buffaloes all over the field all game long. But, this game may be closer than you think.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Colorado +15. Free ATS or O/U final score pick provided below!
The Huskies should win this game at home, a place where they just don’t lose that often, but remember that Colorado is coming off of an embarrassing loss as well, and neither team wants to make it two in a row in the L column.
Take Colorado to cover the spread in this one. With the exception of the Huskies win over Utah, all of their conference games have been decided by a TD or less. I think Colorado is a damn good football team, and can, and will, cover the spread Saturday afternoon.
