|Date & Time||Saturday October 31, 2015, 3:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: UCLA Bruins -18.5 -- Over/Under:
The Colorado Buffaloes travel to play the UCLA Bruins in a Saturday afternoon Pac-12 battle.
The UCLA Bruins are coming off of a win against Cal last Thursday night. The UCLA offense is averaging 35.6 points per game with 503.7 yards per game. Quarterback Josh Rosen leads the UCLA offense with 1968 yards, 15 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Paul Perkins is the lead back for UCLA with 754 yards and 8 touchdowns. Jordan Payton is the leading receiver for UCLA with 546 yards and 4 touchdowns. The UCLA defense is giving up 27.1 points per game with 396.7 yards per game. UCLA’s defense has 14 sacks, 3 fumble recoveries, and 6 interceptions. UCLA got back on track last week but will have to avoid a slip up against Colorado, which UCLA should win if they want to remain in the Pac-12 South race.
The Colorado Buffaloes are coming off of a win against Oregon State in their last game. The Colorado offense is averaging 34 points per game with 432.9 yards per game. Quarterback Sefo Liufau leads the offense for Colorado with 1870 yards, 9 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions. Phillip Lindsay is the lead back for Colorado with 470 yards and 5 touchdowns. Nelson Spruce is the leading receiver for Colorado with 563 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Colorado defense has given up 29.4 yards per game with 426.3 yards per game. Colorado’s defense has 19 sacks, 4 fumble recoveries, and 10 interceptions. Colorado is one of the less talented teams in the Pac-12 and will look to catch UCLA looking past them to get an upset victory in this one.
Colorado is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Colorado’s last 6 road games. UCLA is 3-3 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 4-0 in UCLA’s last 4 games. The under is 5-2 in UCLA’s last 7 games overall.
Colorado is outmatched in this one and I expect UCLA to take it to them in this game. The only way Colorado is able to stick around in this one is if UCLA over looks them but I do not expect that to happen.
