Arizona vs. Colorado game predictions

Two in a row?

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats are looking to get back to .500 in conference play and win two-straight games after dropping two-straight.

Make your score pick here!

Here's how we see the game going:

Gabe Encinas: I think the Colorado game goes similar to the Oregon State game. Colorado's offense won't be as miserable, but their defense might not be as statistically great as Oregon State's. The defense has another week to get used to these adjustments, and the offense is seeing some strong improvements with the addition of Tyrell Johnson, the move for Freddie Tagaloa to go to left guard, and Orlando Bradford emerging as a goal line threat. Final score: 44-17 Arizona.

David Potts: I don't think we'll crush them, but I think we'll pull away late. The Oregon State win proved we still have some fight, and Colorado is about as bad as Oregon State. I'll say 42 - 28 Arizona.

Ryan Kelapire: I was made fun of when I predicted that Arizona would only give up 17 points to Oregon State, yet they managed to do even better than that. That said, I think Arizona will win this game 41-27. The Wildcats' offense is clicking again with Anu Solomon back, and perhaps the new MMM package will continue to allow them to get stops consistently.

Jason Bartel: Colorado is better than the past few years, but still not quite to the level they need to be to shutdown Arizona. I think the offense will fire on all cylinders, and the defense will ride some of that confidence they found last week to a solid 41-24 victory, with the Buffs getting a late touchdown to make it closer than it should be.
