Colorado is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games on turf and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 September games. The under is 4-1 in Colorado’s last 5 non-conference games. Minnesota is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against the PAC-12. The under is 5-1 in Minnesota’s last 6 home games.
Minnesota has absolutely dominated their first two opponents, while Colorado was just blown out by Air Force. Air Force ran for 435 yards in their victory against Colorado and I think Minnesota will have a field day on the ground as well. Minnesota has the home field advantage and is the better team. I expect a blowout win for them in this game.
