Colorado (0-2) vs. Wyoming (1-1)

Line: Colorado -7

Colorado returns home to a crowd that is quickly turning on their Buffalo football team after two loses to start the season. After a home loss to Colorado state, CU was thumped by Toledo 54 to 38 in a game that wasn't even as close as the scoreboard indicated. Colorado found themselves in a 30-3 hole at half and battled to close the gap in the second half. Quarterback Cody Hawkins has struggled thus far this season and once the Big 12 teams roll around, there is little chance for improvement.

Wyoming got crushed last week, but for those of us who went with Wyoming and the points, it was a slim victory. The Cowboys defense played well early which allowed them to squeak by the 33.5 point spread against a superior Texas team. Wyoming has switched back and forth between two quarterbacks and neither has been efficient.

Truth be told, this is a game that pretty much anyone outside of the fans of the two schools could do without.  Colorado has shown nothing.  Their run game doesn't exist, their passing game moves the ball at times but interceptions often come into play.  Wyoming is standing on their defense as they have no other choice. The offense cannot be relied on. Wyoming is 1-9 ATS in their last 10 on the road. Colorado is 1-4 against the number in their last five at home. Not a game I like at all but Ill go with Colorado as they have shown the only glimpse of an offense between these two teams.

Dave's Pick: Colorado -7
