After a solid week three College football slate, we have some banger games to watch in week four. There is nothing quite like watching a game between two schools with storied programs, and one of those such games is occurring this weekend between the 19th-ranked Buffaloes of Colorado and the 10th-ranked Ducks of Oregon. Here is what you should know.
Man has Bo Nix leveled up since leaving Auburn. That Nix-lead Oregon offense has been an absolute problem for their opponents, averaging 588 yards a game which puts them in 4th for the entirety of college football. He throws for an average of 363.3 yards a game with five touchdowns so far and no picks. Troy Franklin has also been a stud this year, as has Gary Bryant in the receiving game. Their running backs have also been very good and efficient, scoring 8 touchdowns as a unit on over 220 yards a game. While the Buffaloes have a somewhat comparable offense, the Ducks really do have a significantly better defense, allowing around 150 fewer total yards a game, and roughly half the points to their opponents. All that being said, will the Ducks be able to remain undefeated and derail the Coach Prime hype train?
If you ask me I would say probably not. Man has this Colorado team been so fun to watch. Shedeur Sanders and the Buffaloes are averaging over 415 passing yards a game which is good for second in college football. Travis Hunter is out which will hurt both the defense and the offense, but the rest of the squad I think will be able to step up and fill the gaps. Xavier Weaver has been an absolute problem already racking up almost 400 receiving yards through three games. The Buffs have 6 receivers who have more than 100 receiving yards, and it is this depth that I think will propel them to success against the Ducks. The rushing attack has been less successful, but I think that air attack should prove more than enough. Give me the Buffs on the upset here, it might not be the most likely outcome but there is some value there and I love riding the hype train.
Give me the Buffs in this one. Bet on Coloradoand get your extra $200 in bet credits.
