"Washington’s goal is to win the Pac-12, and our goal is to win the Pac-12. It’s going to be a great game. It’s exciting to have the best team in the North and the best team in the South going up against each other. It’s going to be spectacular."

He also rushed for 59 yards and a touchdown. But he has thrown just one touchdown and zero interceptions in the last two games.

The Buffaloes average 201.1 rushing yards per game (45th). Junior RB Phillip Lindsay (211 car, 1136 yards, 15 TDs) has a nose for the end zone. His 15 rushing touchdowns rank 12th best in the nation.

Colorado Buffaloes at Washington Huskies Final Score Prediction
Both programs played eight common opponents this season. Washington out-gained those 8 by an average of 135 yards per game. At the same time Colorado averaged 115 more net yards per game. Even if those trends hold steady for this matchup, its hard to pick a winner. Could this game be closer than the one TD spread?
Washington and Colorado each lost to USC, with the Buffaloes also dropping a game at Michigan. They were leading that game in the second half before Liufau left with an injury.
The Huskies have won six consecutive meetings against Colorado, the last coming in 2014 in Boulder, 38-23.
