Picking the winner of the rivalry game between Utah and Colorado

The USR staff makes their picks for this week's 'big game'

This game has been close the past 4 years, and I wouldn't expect much different today. Joe Williams should be able to get another 100+ yards rushing, and the Ute secondary should have a better game this week against a much less talented QB. Somehow this game will be close, but Utah will put away the Buffs with a late touchdown score to secure a 9-3 season.

Utah will take out all their recent frustration on Colorado, an even heavier dose of the run game than usual because of the weather. The game may start out close, but the Utes dominate as the game progresses.

The Buffs are rolling out a backup quarterback, on the road, against a team that is going to be pissed off.  Utah is beat up on both sides of the ball and have nothing recently that gives me confidence in a route, although a win should happen, or the fans may start calling for Whittingham's head. That won't happen.
