Shane’s Free Pick

The answer to if Colorado can finish the season on a high note is no. Colorado is giving up 35.9 points per game and they are going to really struggle in this game. Barnes is going to throw a couple more touchdowns. Shedeur Sanders looks checked out for the Buffaloes and he’s not going to lead Colorado to a whole lot of offensive success. This is going to be a comfortable victory for Utah. Back Utah against the spread.
