According to everyone weighing in on the Washington Huskies and Colorado Buffaloes game this Saturday,  the Huskies should have this game in the palm of their hands.  With the college betting odds putting the Buffaloes at a +21 point spread, however, covering the game may be harder than they think.  Colorado has not played well at all this year, but it remains to be seen if they will be blown out this bad.  They could surprise everyone this coming Saturday against the Huskies. All things considered, the Washington Huskies are by no means one of the best teams in the NCAA, but they just happen to be much better than a struggling Colorado Buffaloes team that has no chance of reaching the post season this year.  The Huskies biggest strong point is their defense, where they have allowed the 53rd fewest points in all of college football this year.  While not a staggering statistic, it is enough to make a team like the Buffaloes nervous.  They are 118th in the league in points scored and do not look to be getting any better.  They get an average of 17 points a game, which is just not enough to beat a team like Washington.  They will need to figure out a way to score points more effectively if they want to even stand a chance this coming Saturday.  If not, then the Huskies should have this thing wrapped up fairly quickly. When it comes to games that have little to no speculation about them this week, the Huskies VS the Buffaloes is near the top of the list.  While Colorado could surprise everyone and pull this one out, it does not look likely.  The Huskies just have just too many tricks up their sleeve.  Them cover the +21 spread on the game, however, is another story.
