One loss Utah can only win their games. If the College Football Playoff Selection Committee doesn’t believe that they belong in the Top 10, which the Committee doesn’t at this point, there is nothing that Utah can do about it.
Utah has a chance to make a statement with a big road win as a 1-point college football week 10 betting underdog versus Washington this Saturday. Will Utah rise to the occasion?

Why Bet On #13 Utah to Beat Washington (-1)
So far, Coach Chris Petersen has developed a very good defense at Washington. The offense? Not so much. Petersen’s defense is allowing only 360 total yards and 16.9 points per game on average.
Washington’s offense is averaging 350.9 yards and 27.1 points per game. That’s not a lot of offense for a team in the Pac 12. Those offensive numbers are skewed even more considering that Washington scored 49 against Arizona in Washington’s last game.
Utah’s defense has struggled once this season. That was when the Utes yielded 42 points to USC in a 24 to 42 road loss on Oct. 24. In every other game this season, the Utes have shut down their opponents. In fact, only 2 other teams in addition to USC, Fresno State and Cal, have scored more than 20 points against Utah this season.
Why Bet On Washington (-1) to Beat #13 Utah
Until the Arizona game, Washington’s offense wasn’t close to resembling the offenses that Petersen had put together while at Boise State. Washington had a great defense but the Huskies couldn’t score on their end.
Against Arizona, Washington’s offense was terrific. Granted, they played a very bad Arizona defense, but Washington’s offense averaged 5.6 yards a carry on the ground. The Huskies ran for over 200 yards and passed for 267 yards. Quarterback Jake Browning threw for 263 yards and 4 touchdowns.
He didn’t throw a pick.
If Washington’s offense comes to play this Saturday, the Huskies should be able to beat Utah. Washington is the pick. My final score prediction is Washington 27, Utah 20.
