The Colorado Buffaloes will play the Arizona Wildcats in a PAC-12 Game on Saturday night at Arizona Stadium in Tucson, Arizona.

The Colorado Buffaloes are 0-4 this season after they lost to UCLA by a score of 45-17 in Week 4. Colorado was outgained 515-309 and turned the ball over two times in the loss. The Colorado offense is averaging 11.8 points per game with 158.5 passing yards per game and 102.8 rushing yards per game. Owen McCown has thrown for 310 yards, one touchdown, and one interception for the Buffaloes this season. Deion Smith has rushed for 175 yards and one touchdown, while Daniel Arias has caught 13 passes for 206 yards for Colorado. The Colorado defense is giving up 43.3 points per game and 467.8 yards per game.

The Arizona Wildcats are 2-2 this season after they lost to California by a score of 49-31 in their last game. Arizona led this game at halftime, but was outscored 28-7 in the second half. The Arizona offense is averaging 29.3 points per game with 301.3 passing yards per game and 125.5 rushing yards per game. Jayden de Laura has thrown for 1,149 yards, eight touchdowns, and six interceptions for the Wildcats this season. Michael Wiley has rushed for 210 yards and three scores, while Jacob Cowing has caught 28 passes for 386 yards and six touchdowns for Arizona. The Arizona defense is allowing 34 points per game and 416 yards per game.

Colorado is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games. The over is 4-1 in Colorado’s last 5 road games. Arizona is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 October games. The over is 5-1-1 in Arizona’s last 7 games. The over is 8-3 in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings.

Colorado played slightly better in their last game, but has lost every game by at least 25 points. Arizona has beaten North Dakota State and San Diego State this season, but has lost to Cal and Mississippi State. I am going to take the over in this game, as both teams have struggled on defense.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
