The Line: Colorado Buffaloes +12 -- Over/Under:
The Oregon Ducks look to get back in the win column when they travel to Colorado to play the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday.
The Colorado Buffaloes are coming off of a blowout victory against Nicholls State. The Colorado offense is averaging 35.8 points per game with 477.5 yards per game. Colorado is led at quarterback by Sefo Liufau with 771 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 1 interception. The rushing attack for Colorado is led by Christian Powell with 245 yards and 3 touchdowns and Phillip Lindsay with 243 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Colorado receivers are led by Nelson Spruce with 276 yards and 1 touchdown and Shay Fields with 202 yards and 1 touchdown. The Colorado defense has given up 16.5 points per game with 341.3 yards per game. The Colorado defense has 6 sacks, 2 fumbles recovered, and 7 interceptions. Colorado will look to pass the ball and take advantage of the weak Oregon secondary.
The Oregon Ducks look to rebound after Utah beat them in Oregon last week. The Oregon offense is explosive and averages 42.5 point per game with 525.4 yards per game. The Oregon quarterback situation is a little tricky. Jeff Lockie and Vernon Adams Jr. both played in Oregon’s last game, Adams Jr. was the starter but was replaced by Lockie. Jeff Lockie has 367 yards with 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions for the Ducks. Vernon Adams Jr. has 581 yards with 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions for Oregon. The leading rusher for Oregon is Royce Freeman with 450 yards and 5 touchdowns. Bralon Addison is the leading receiver for Oregon with 216 yards and 2 touchdowns. Charles Nelson also plays an important role in the pass game for Oregon with 153 yards and 10 receptions. The Oregon defense has been bad this year and has definitely cost them in their two losses this year. The Oregon defense has given up 45.5 points per game and 474.8 yards per game. The Oregon defense has 5 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries, and 5 interceptions. Oregon will be trying to bounce back with a big effort against Colorado but it will be interesting to see how their defense/special teams respond after giving up 62 points to Utah.
The Oregon Ducks are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games. The Ducks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games. Oregon is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings with Colorado. Colorado is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss. The over is 5-1 in Colorado’s last 6 home games.
Oregon will be looking to bounce back against Colorado this weekend. I have a feeling that Oregon will come out and make a statement to show the country that they are still an elite team this season. Colorado hasn’t really impressed me at all this season so I am taking Oregon.
