Point Spread: UW -10.5/COL +10.5
Over/Under Total: 51.5

The Pac 12 will have a battle this week of two undefeated teams that were both ranked in the top 25 just a year ago—No. 7 UW and Colorado (No.27 currently) will get after it this Saturday night in Boulder, Colorado in front of a hostile Buffalo faithful crowd. Both teams enter this contest at 3-0 in the early part of their seasons but only one will go away with the W. For Colorado, this may be the defining game of their entire season. If the Buffaloes can manage to upset the No. 7 Huskies at home it will certainly shake things up in the Pac 12 rankings. The key word here is “upset” which it would totally take a near perfect effort by the Buffs on both sides of the pigskin.

Meanwhile, the Huskies are coming off a 48-16 pancake win over Fresno State last Saturday at Husky Stadium in Seattle. The Dawgs outgained Fresno State by more than 100 yards and easily had the contest wrapped up by the time the Bulldogs gained most of their yardage. Washington QB, Jake Browning tossed four touchdowns on 19-22 passing and 255 yards through the air. The other dominant weapon for these Huskies is WR/kick returner Dante Pettis. Pettis pulled in three touchdown passes and scored on a punt return which was his third in as many games. The Huskies are definitely a top caliber team despite losing some of their playmakers from last year—other guys just step up and it helps when Jake Browning, Myles Gaskin, and Dante Pettis are still roaming the field and campus.

Not to be outplayed, let’s not forget about the Buffaloes QB, Steven Montez, who also threw four touchdowns last week in the Buff’s 41-21 win over Northern Colorado. Sure, it was a less talented foe but that said, the Buffaloes are again playing for the Pac 12 Title and every game is one notch closer; no matter who the opponent is. Colorado is an up and coming program with good coaching. This game should be close early—I like Colorado to fight tough in the trenches and hang around with the higher ranked Huskies. These Buffs have talent in both RB Phillip Lindsey and WR Devin Ross. Offensively, the Buffaloes will need to count on their O-line to open holes and or provide time for Montez to find his receivers. If the Huskies defense can be somewhat maintained I like Colorado’s chances of making it a respectable at home.

Defense, defense, defense. This will be the deciding factor in this contest. Colorado allowed Northern Colorado to score 21 points? The Washington Huskies are a tad bit better than Northern Colorado! The Buffaloes will need to have a seriously solid defensive game plan if they wish to stop or slow down the high-powered Husky team which has accumulated 141 points in just three games already. That’s 47 points per game, if you’re doing the math. The numbers don’t lie folks—Washington is not far off from where they were a year ago overall as a team. This rematch of the Pac 12 Championship game might not be as much of a blowout as the 41-10 beating the Huskies put on Colorado last season but it will be a win for the Huskies regardless. Washington on the road in Boulder will help the Buffs stay close enough to keep it interesting but in the end the Buffaloes will not be able to stay with the Dawgs. UW is 7-0 ATS in its last 7 games with Colorado, and the total has been UNDER in 11 of Colorado’s last 14 contests versus conference teams. The Pac 12 has several solid teams this season and Washington might be the strongest one of them all. UW Head Coach Chris Petersen has his guys ready every week and you can take that to the bank. Huskies cover the 10.5 and stay perfect after week four.

I like the Huskies to cover the points on the road.

Heisman Trophy Betting Odds - USC QB Sam Darnold starts the season off as a heavy favorite at +350 odds. Sooners QB Baker Mayfield is second on the list at +700 but can he keep his nose clean? Louisville QB Lamar Jackson should dominate this season but will Louisville be taken seriously? Oregon Ducks RB Royce Freeman is worth a pop at 60/1 if he gets the carries. Bama WR Calvin Ridley brings experience and big-time playmaking ability and will be featured on National TV a bunch, giving him a legit darkhorse shot. But will they throw the ball enough with a QB who likes to run? Missing from this year's list of odds is a defensive player.
