After suffering their first loss of the season on Saturday, the UCLA Bruins look to get back on the winning track with a road game against the Colorado Buffaloes on Sept. 29 at Folsom Field. The Bruins opened as 21-point favorites against the Buffaloes.
UCLA was not just undefeated on the field before their 27-20 loss to the Oregon State Beavers, but the Bruins were also 3-0 against the spread. But after opening as an 11-point favorite against the Beavers, a line that shrank to eight points by the end of the week, UCLA fell behind early and never fully recovered.
Colorado had rightful claim to the most disappointing team in college football with their 0-3 start, including a loss to Sacramento State. But tell that to the Washington State Cougars, who held a 17-point lead at home before falling 35-34 to the Buffaloes. Believe it or not but Colorado, at 1-0 in conference play, is tied for first in the Pac-12 South.
Colorado is 1-3 against the spread this season. The Bruins won their meeting against the Buffaloes last year at the Rose Bowl, 45-6.
Saturday's game is at 3 p.m. PDT, and will be televised by Pac-12 Network.
