TV Schedule: Saturday, Nov. 7, 7:30 p.m. ET, FOX
Stadium: Husky Stadium
Line: Washington (-1.5)
Let’s start this preview off by remembering this simple thing: College football has been crazy in 2015. Upsets have been a thing of beauty and they have happened quite often.
The Utes might only be ranked No. 12 in the College Football Playoff rankings, but the season still has plenty of football that needs to be played. Also, if Utah can finish the regular season with just one loss and win its conference title, the committee will likely be looking right at it.
Everything to play for or not, the Huskies know how to pull off the upset. After all, they knocked off the USC Trojans on the road. This was against the same USC team that ended the Utes’ perfect record by the score of 42-24. Washington also just got done beating the Arizona Wildcats in blowout fashion, 49-3.
To make a long story short, there’s a reason why Washington is getting the line for this contest, and I am not going to be the one to fight it. If the Utes do in fact lose this weekend, the Pac-12 conference will only have one playoff contender left (Stanford Cardinal).
Let the upsets begin.
PREDICTION: Utes 24, Huskies 27
