We have reached week five of the college football season and that includes two games on Friday night. In this one it’s a Pac 12 showdown when the UCLA Bruins make the trip to Folsom Field to take on the Colorado Buffaloes.
The home team has won the last three meetings between the two teams. Last year UCLA came out ahead 27-23.
Expectations were high for Chip Kelly and the UCLA Bruins but so far this season they haven’t lived up to the expectations.
They have lost all three games including their last game against Fresno State. The only game they covered the spread against the Oklahoma Sooners.
Chip Kelly is known for great offensive team’s but so far that has been farther from the truth. They come into this game averaging only 17.3 points per game.
The Bruins are led at quarterback by Dorian Thompson-Robinson who hasn’t been great this year throwing for 522 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions.
On the defensive side they are giving up 37.7 points per game and both of those stats need to improve for a chance to win this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Colorado Buffaloes who have gotten off to a fast start winning the first three games of the year.
They have also covered the spread in two of the three games. The Buffaloes strength is on the offensive side of the ball.
They come into this game averaging over 41 points per game and in this game they need to take advantage of the bad Bruins defense.
On the defensive side of the ball the Buffaloes have played well, but they also haven’t really been tested and probably won’t be this weekend.
If the Buffaloes can get out to the fast start, they should really have no issue coming out ahead in this game, and maybe make it blowout city.
