Line: Utah (-6)
Entering the 2015 college football season, this game likely had a lot more intrigue — well, sort of. The Arizona Wildcats were supposed to contend in the Pac-12 South and the Utah Utes were coming off of a season in which they did some contending in this conference.
Only one of the two teams have met expectations in 2015. This simple fact will tell you all you need to know about that: Arizona is 5-5 in 2015. Not only that, but the Wildcats have done everything but compete in this conference as they hold a 2-5 record against Pac-12 squads.
Utah has only lost once this season. That loss came against a USC Trojans team that has done some major disappointing, yet has a lot of talent.
Given the fact that Rich Rodriguez’s squad gets this game in front of its fans, Arizona at least has one thing going for it. Believe it or not, the Wildcats only have one game left after this contest and it will be played against the Arizona State Sun Devils.
As for the Utes, they still have duels against the UCLA Bruins and Colorado Buffaloes. If all goes according to plan in the final three contests, Utah very well could be playing in the Pac-12 title game. The winner of that will likely partake in this season’s College Football Playoff. Well, assuming the Stanford Cardinal make the Pac-12 championship game and also still only have one loss.
PREDICTION: Utes 38, Wildcats 33
