Colorado in the PAC 12 title game is one of the most positive developments of the season. Since coming to the conference they have been cellar dwellers but everything has come together this season.
There might even be a few scenarios out there where the Buffs get some playoff consideration. It is a long shot.
Washington has delivered on their pre-season hype with their lone slip being a home loss to USC.
Prior to that they had been thrashing league opponents including Stanford and Oregon, who have ruled the PAC 12 North since its creation.
Everyone is saying that if they win this one they will be part of the playoffs so there is a lot on the line here.
It is hard to know just how good the Buffs are as they have lost to the two best teams on their schedule (USC and Michigan, both on the road).
However, in every week but those they have used stout defense and smart offense to win, and they have developed a knack of performing well when it matters .
Colorado will look to win this one by slowing things down and trying to use the Huskies aggression against them. Look for underrated RB Phillip Lindsay to carry a lot and for QB Sefo Liufau to take a couple strikes down the field.
On defense the Buffs have been strong all season long.
They held the Trojans to just 21 points and two weeks ago limited a Washington State team that averages more than 40 to just 24.
While nobody was watching they recruited enough athletes to compete in the PAC 12 and they will be put to the test against a very good Washington team.
They are ready for this situation and just have to perform.
The Huskies have had a very good season but there is just a little more work to do. Unlike that other hype monster in Orange (Tennessee) they are on the cusp of making the playoffs.
Washington is a complete team. They have be explosive on offense with Jake Browning leading the way and their defense is among the best in the nation.
All of that is why they are an easy installment as a favourite in this one. Still Colorado is not going to give it to them, even though they are not as strong on the road.
The Huskies had a great bounce back on the road against Washington State last week.
They really limited the Cougars and their offense was back in form scoring 45 points. They are going to be really enthusiastic in this one and their key may be channeling all of that emotion.
I think this is also a game where having a coaching edge could certainly be a difference maker if it is close. Chris Peterson is among the best.

There are no flukes here, both of these teams have earned their spot. Colorado may be in that “just happy to be here” category but I expect a focused effort.
They have shown they can compete with any team in the nation, playing tough in both of their losses.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Washington -7.5
The hook is trying to draw you on to the Colorado side for sure.
I think this one will see Washington burst out to a lead but once Colorado gets their bearings they will stay in it. Look for Washington to get up by a couple of scores and to never really be in doubt.
