Joe D'Amico's NCAAF PAC 12 Game of the Month
Utah vs. Washington,
11/10/2012 22:30 EDT,
Score: 15 - 34
Point Spread: +1½/-110 Washington
Saturday's winner is Washington over Utah. This is my PAC 12 GoM.
Washington is the only PAC 12 team not to have ever lost to Utah. The Huskies are 4-1 both SU and ATS at home this season with wins over the Cardinals and Beavers. When hosting, UW is outscoring opponents by an average of 9.0 PPG on the season. I put Washington's offense way ahead of Utah's "O" here. Junior QB, Keith Price has a lot more experience than Utah freshman play-caller, Travis Wilson. Bishop Sankey has 855 YR and 11 TDs. The Huskies RB has 7 straight games with 110 or more yards on the ground. On the road, the Utes are averaging 12.0 PPG and are being outscored by an average of 14.5 PPG. Utah has won two in a row over California and Washington State, two teams that aren't exactly world-beaters. Prior to that, they dropped four straight to ASU, USC, UCLA, and Oregon State by a combined 117-56. Their running game has been horrible forcing their frosh QB to make costly mistakes. The Huskies are 4-0 ATS their L4 games played at home, 7-1 ATS their L8 games played vs. teams with a losing record, and 5-2 ATS their L7 games played on the road. Take Washington. Thank you.
