The Washington State Cougars and Utah Utes face off in a Week 4 college football showdown at Rice-Eccles Stadium. When these two teams last faced off in December of 2020, Utah won 45-28.
Washington State has gotten off to a terrible start to the season losing two of their first three games. The win for Washington State was over Portland State, but they still gave up 24 points. The Cougars are averaging 27 points per game while their defense is giving up 31,67 points. Under center for Washington State is Jayden de Laura and he has thrown for 575 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions. Running back Max Borghi is also having a lot of success putting up 217 yards and two touchdowns. If Washington State wants to win this game, they are going to need the defense to be better.
On the other side of this matchup is Utah who have lost two of their first three games. Utah won their first game against Weber State, but since that point they have lost to BYU and San Diego State. The game against the Aztecs went to triple overtime where they lost on a two point conversion. Utah’s offense hasn’t been good enough, and against San Diego State they only put up 17 points. Charlie Brewer started the season as the starting quarterback but Cameron Riser looks to be the guy now and he has thrown for 182 yards, four touchdowns, and zero interceptions.
Washington State is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games. Utah is 6-0 against the spread in their last six games against teams with a losing record. The favorite is 5-2 in the last seven meetings. The home team is 6-2 against the spread, The over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings.
I think Utah is the better team, but with the way they have looked this season, I don’t trust them to win this game in blowout fashion. Utah has some questions with their quarterback, aid it seems they might not trust either guy. Look for Washington State to find enough offense to cover this spread.
