The Colorado Buffaloes will roll into Los Angeles on Saturday to face a UCLA Bruins team that is fighting for its life in the Pac-12 South. Though the game has big implications for UCLA, Colorado, despite its 2-9 record, will have some goals of its own. Namely, after defeating the Arizona Wildcats last Saturday, they'll be looking to put together their first winning streak of the 2011 season, which could go a long way towards ending head coach Jon Embree's first season on a positive note.
Vegas, though, isn't too keen on Colorado's chances. According to oddsshark.com, the Buffaloes are 10 1/2 point underdogs heading into Saturday's game, although the line did initially open at an even 11. Although UCLA is only 2-3 against the spread at home, the Buffaloes are an abysmal 0-5 against the spread on the road. Saturday will be as good a time as ever to change that.
