The Rumble in the Rockies has been a pretty fun rivalry over the last few years since these two teams joined the Pac-12.
In their seven meetings Utah has won five of them and aside from last year, all these games have been decided by one possession.
Based on history and the way this season has gone we may be in for another close contest.
Utah has suffered some significant injuries including to their starting quarterback. However, they were able to overcome that last week with a very impressive win over Oregon.
Freshman Jason Shelley played well throwing for 262 yards and rushing for two touchdowns.
Starting halfback Zack Moss was unavailable last week as well and he is out for the season as well, but junior Armand Shyne did a fantastic job rushing the ball 26 times for 174 yards.
With that kind of effort and production, Utah really didn’t miss their star players, but we’ll see if they can duplicate that this week on the road against Colorado and for the remainder of the season including a potential berth in the Pac-12 title game.
After a hot start, the Colorado Buffaloes have faced stiffer competition and now reside near the bottom of the Pac-12 standings.
Colorado won five straight games and have since lost five straight games and are in danger of missing a bowl game. They need to win one of these next two games to become bowl eligible.
If they do end up missing out on a bowl, they will be really kicking themselves for losing to Oregon State at home. Not only did they lose, but they actually blew a 28 point lead.

Colorado won the last meeting here in Boulder and they’ll look to win again and become bowl eligible again. Utah, meanwhile, is looking to represent the Pac-12 South in the Pac-12 title game.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Colorado +7
I think this will be, yet again, another tight one possession game between these two teams and I like Colorado to cover the seven, but Utah wins straight up.
