The Washington State Cougars and the Utah Utes will meet up on the college football gridiron on Saturday.
Washington State enters this one with a 3-1 mark so far. The Cougars opened up with wins over NM State, Northern Colorado and Houston before falling to UCLA 67-63 in Week 4.
In the UCLA loss, Washington State QB Anthony Gordon tossed for a whopping 570 yards and nine touchdowns, with Easop Winston hauling in four scores for 114 yards on 10 receptions.
Over on the Utah side, they’re 3-1 as well. The Utes opened with wins over BYU, Northern Illinois and Idaho State but fell to USC 30-23 their last time up.
In the loss, Utah QB Tyler Huntley logged 210 yards and a TD, and Devin Brumfield led the rush with 63 yards. Derrick Vickers was the top receiver there with 38 yards on three grabs.
The Cougars are 5-1 ATS in their last six road games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 in September. Washington State is 1-4 ATS in their last five on turf and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 conference games.
Meanwhile, the Utes are 6-2 ATS in their last seven after a straight-up loss and 1-6 ATS in their last seven overall. Utah is 0-4 ATS in their last four home games and 0-6 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
Washington State put up a heck of a fight against UCLA, but a relatively sluggish response to the Bruins’ big second half put the squash on plans for a big win.
Utah is built to score as well, and I expect this to be a high-flying game. I think Washington State has enough offense to get in there and cover though.
