The PAC 12’s Utah, who are on 22nd place and well known with bookmaker call centers for being a very consistent team, are getting ready to face the Mountain West Conference’s Colorado State at the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl on December 20, and many fans believe that this matchup could turn out to be one of the most interesting ones for the beginning of the bowl season.
The Utes’ season started with them being 6-1, and these include a win over UCLA and USC. But after those wins, Utah crumbled in their schedule’s toughest part, as they ended up losing three out of the last five meetings that they played. Out of the four times that they were beaten, the Utes lost two of those by over three points.
Colorado State have one of the country’s most productive offenses, as they have the services of WR Rashard Higgins, who’s a huge talent and a favorite with many fans, as well as a great RB in Dee Hart. However, the team could lose head coach Jim McElwain, who sided with Florida, so their moral for this game could turn out to be very interesting after they ended up losing their coach as well as the last game that they played.
The Rams may very well have one of college football’s top offenses, but the Utes have much more balance, and everyone knows that this is key to winning a game. Besides a loss to Washington State that was a huge embarrassment, this season Utah just lost meetings with ranked teams. The three times that the Utes were beaten took place when they took on teams that were looking to make it to the playoff, the Oregon Ducks, Arizona Wildcats and Arizona State Sun Devils.
Many experts and bookmaker call centers believe that early on, Utah will underestimate Colorado State and be beaten by Hart or Higgins many times for a massive gain, but the Utes’ steadiness could see them win this matchup.
Fans all over the country are eagerly looking forward to seeing the Utes take on the Rams, and believe that this matchup will be full of intrigue. What will ultimately happen on the field is yet to be seen, but get ready for some explosive action in the Las Vegas Bowl when these teams square off.
