Before the season, we joked about Utah not taking advantage of its supreme luck in not playing Oregon or Stanford in its first two seasons in the extended Pac-12. Welp, they're 1-0 against the Big Boys from the northern division thus far. Oregon, on the other ...   More

Remember how fun and exciting it was when Oregon took on a two-touchdown underdog in a hostile environment last week? [You betcha!—Ed.] Well it's back to the five-touchdown dogs—or should I say "Cougs"—this weekend with former high profile football coach Mike Leach's Cougars coming to town. Before you scoff, I'll remind you that these aren't the same Cougs you've seen the past few seasons. They're ...   More

For those of you who can recall last year's matchup between these two teams, there was a bit of history to it: No team had ever been 44-point underdog underdog in conference history until Colorado's ill-fated venture into Autzen Stadium. The Ducks went on to beat the spread with a 70-14 victory. But that was last season. The Colorado Buffaloes are better this year. They're 2-1, they have a new head ...   More
