The Colorado Buffaloes (2-10, 1-7) will stage their season finale on Friday, heading to Salt Late City to take on the Utah Utes (7-4, 4-4) in a Mountain West Conference matchup.
The Buffaloes are coming off a 6-45 loss against the UCLA Bruins and have struggled altogether this season, losing eight of their last nine games. The Utes -- who beat the Bruins 31-6 just two weeks ago -- outstripe the Rams in every category except passing yards and turnover ratio, which could make for an interesting game if those trends hold.
OddsShark.com had the Utes opening as a 19.5 favorite, but the consensus appears to have grown to a full 21-point advantage for Utah. The over/under is currently at 48.5, but given how porous the Buffaloes defense has been of late -- allowing over 30 points in each of the last three weeks -- the Utes may be able to cross that barrier on their own.
