Utah vs. Colorado prediction roundtable with the Campus Insiders staff. Breaking down what will happen between the Utes and Buffaloes.


Jeff Bartl

Utah has been overrated all season, and the cracks in the armor fully showed in last week’s home loss to a bad Oregon team. Colorado had an impressive win over Washington State, and it’s going to head off to the Pac-12 title game with a win over the Utes.

Jonathan Bass

Late in the third quarter, after forcing Oregon to punt for the fifth time during the game, it’s like Utah’s defense went into the locker room. Normally stout on D, the Utes then gave up four consecutive touchdown drives, including a one-play strike to end the third, and then a 10-play clock-eater that effectively sealed the game for the Ducks. Such a performance is inexcusable for a team that was gunning for a conference title game. As for Colorado, the dream season continued by forcing late turnovers and strangling the normally potent Wazzu offense.

One team is coming off a stellar win; the other is coming off a backbreaking loss. As Jim Morrison once said, “ride the snake.” Colorado keeps rolling right into the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Dave Miller

If this game was being played at Rice-Eccles Stadium, I would give the edge to the Utes in a bounce back contest following their last-second loss to Oregon. But it will be played at Folsom Field against a squad whose coach, Mike MacIntyre, should take home just about every piece of national coach of the year hardware. Buffaloes quarterback Sefo Liufau can hurt the tough Utes defense both with his legs and arm, and he’ll be a little too much for Kyle Whittingham’s squad this week. Throw in running back Phillip Lindsay, and Utah will eventually wilt defensively. The charmed Colorado season continues with a win at home.

Brian Stultz

One of my favorite people in the office is a guy named Parker Sperry, who works in client solutions. He went to Colorado, and it totally makes sense. He just carries that aura around of a Boulderite.

The Buffaloes are rejuvenated under Mike MacIntyre, who probably spends his off time hiking in the nearby mountains while listening to Yanni. Or something like that. Anyway, he is doing one heck of a job with Colorado, and I am glad that they are good again. That place is rocking when the Buffs are good. Colorado wins.
