Colorado Buffalos at Oregon Ducks
Colorado +20.5 at Oregon, Total: 58.5: This is not your typical Ducks team. Aside from a second-half collapse in the opening game against Auburn, Oregon has been led by its defense.
The Ducks have had one big offensive explosion this season — a 77-6 obliteration of Nevada — but have topped 30 points in a game just one other time. And they’ve held their past four opponents to six, three, six and seven points. Oregon is No. 7 in the country in scoring defense (10.5 points per game) and 10th in overall defense (262.8 yards).
Since a 52-31 win over Colorado State, the Buffaloes have played in two overtime games and two others than were decided by five or fewer points.
Colorado has enough offense to keep it close. COLORADO and UNDER
