Arizona @ Colorado
Current Records: Arizona 0-5; Colorado 1-4
What to Know
The Colorado Buffaloes watched the action from their couches last weekend, but are set to take to the field. Colorado and the Arizona Wildcats will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Folsom Field. The Buffaloes are out to stop a six-game streak of losses at home.
Colorado found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 37-14 punch to the gut against the USC Trojans two weeks ago. QB Brendon Lewis had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: despite one touchdown, he threw one interception and fumbled the ball once with only 162 yards passing.
Meanwhile, Arizona ended up a good deal behind the UCLA Bruins when they played last week, losing 34-16. No one had a standout game offensively for Arizona, but they got scores from RB Michael Wiley and WR Jamarye Joiner.
Colorado is the favorite in this one, with an expected 6-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.
The losses put the Buffaloes at 1-4 and the Wildcats at 0-5. A pair of offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Colorado is 232nd worst in the nation in yards per game, with only 239.6 on average. Arizona has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 208th fewest rushing touchdowns in the nation, having accrued only one on the season. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
