Utah is led at quarterback Jake Bentley who has thrown for 489 yards, three touchdowns, and four interceptions.

On the season Colorado is averaging 31.8 points per game while their defense is giving up 24.2 points per game.

In this game, Colorado needs to try and run up the score and put pressure on Utah to try and keep up. .
