Colorado used to be a member of the Big 12 conference and it must be noted that when Texas played the Buffs they smashed them in five straight games by an average margin of 32.8 points. I know these are different manifestations of these football programs, but from a matchup perspective my projections. make the Longhorns DD favs in this spot thus we have value based on my numbers. Key to this tilt: Colorado had the 13th-highest rushing rate in the country this season, keeping the ball on the ground on 60% of its offensive possessions. However, the Texas defense has been close to spectacular slowing the run this season, ranking 36th in the country in Rushing Success rate allowing 3.6 yards per carry, rankings 25th in the nation.
