Even before the season started we knew that the USC/Oregon road doubleheader could end up being an extremely rough patch for the Colorado Buffaloes, but there was no way we could have known it would be this bad. The Buffs have opened as 47.5 point underdogs against the Oregon Ducks next Saturday in Eugene according to Vegas Insider. At one sports book, that number has already fallen to 46.
The Buffaloes entered the game at USC this past weekend as 41-point underdogs and failed to cover thanks to six turnovers, many of which came in the Trojan red-zone after moving the ball rather efficiently. The Buffs have already lost by more than 47 once this year when they fell by 55 on the road at Fresno State. The Ducks have won by that many twice already, once again Tennessee Tech and once again Arizona, who they shut out 49-0. The Ducks certainly could have approached that number Thursday night against Arizona State when they called off the attack up 43-7.
Any chance we can just skip this one?
