I get the case to be made either way in this game, but I like the under here. I just don’t know what to expect from either side in this game on such a quick turnaround, but historically, Texas A&M hasn’t been strong offensively, it’s been the defense that this team hangs its hat on and same thing goes for Colorado as this team is usually good to finish in the mid-60s. Give me the under in a first to 65 wins kind of game, if we even get that high.
