Colorado Buffaloes face the Washington Huskies as ten-point underdogs

The Buffs haven’t lost at Folsom Field since November 2015

NCAA Football: Northern Colorado at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The last time the Colorado Buffaloes lost at home was a 27-24 defeat against USC in November of 2015. The last time the Buffaloes played the Washington Huskies they were embarrassed in a 41-10 loss in the Pac-12 Championship Game. This Saturday either the home winning streak will continue and CU will get revenge for an ugly loss or the Huskies will add another notch to their belt by winning a big road game.

The Buffaloes have opened as ten-point home underdogs for their Saturday night, nationally televised matchup against the Huskies. Both teams enter the game with a lot of questions after non-conference schedules that only included one power five team (that one team being Rutgers). The Buffaloes have only covered in one of their three match-ups, against Colorado State, and the Huskies have only covered against the Montana Grizzlies.

Both of these teams will wake up on Sunday morning with a lot more clarity about their place in the Pac-12 race but only one will do so with a smile on their face.
