Colorado State Vs. Utah State: Predictions, Odds

The Colorado St. Rams take on the Utah St. Aggies tonight and the Rams are looking to rebound after their loss to the Colorado Buffaloes and this matchup will provide a good opportunity to do so. Over at OddShark.com the line opened at 6.5 but has since ballooned to 11.5 points.

That is a large swing since Utah State is 1-1 and while they had an excellent chance to upset Auburn in week one they followed that up by drubbing Weber State, and FCS team, 54-17.

Here are some expert predictions for Saturday nights game and they are a mixed bag.

Mitch Light, Athlon Sports:

Utah State has put up some gaudy numbers in its two games (split with Auburn and Weber State). The Aggies, led by true freshman quarterback Chuckie Keeton and junior tailback Robert Turbin, rank fifth in the nation in total offense. Colorado State looks to be improved in 2011, but Utah State is the better team.

Utah State 30, Colorado State 17

Mike Huguenin, Rivals:

This is one of 10 Mountain West/WAC regular-season matchups this season. This is the 68th meeting in this series but the first since 1997. Utah State is looking for its first 2-1 start since 1997.

Colorado State 34, Utah State 29

College Football News:

Yes, the Utah State offense really is that good, and it'll show why with a great first half that'll put the game away almost immediately. Colorado State will try to bomb its way back into the game, and Thomas will throw for over 300 yards, but he won't be able to keep up the pace.

Utah State 34, Colorado State 17

Colorado State gets a big lift with getting back wide receiver Byron Steele back in the lineup, so I will say Colorado State 21, Utah State 20.
