We’re going to recommend grabbing Colorado plus the points here, as they are clearly the better of these two teams from the embarrassing Big 12 North. The Buffs come in at 6-4 SU and ATS overall, as well as a spotless 4-0 ATS when on the road this season. Colorado has regained some players from their injury depleted early season roster and is actually playing pretty decent right now. CU is in off back-to-back SU and ATS wins vs. Kansas and then Kansas State, while amassing a nice 3-1 ATS run in their past four games.
Meanwhile, Nebraska enters at 5-5 SU and 4-5 ATS overall, as well as 2-2 ATS in Lincoln. The Huskers have dropped three of their past four contests and have been outgained in five of their past six overall. The lone opponent during this span that NU was able to outgain was Baylor. To put it simply, this once dominant ground oriented program is flailing in their new Pro Style offense. The primary problem is that they have been recruiting kids to fit in with the option attack and nowhere is this more evident than at the QB position. The Huskers’ signal callers are completing below 48% of their attempts with a woeful 15/19 – TD/INT ratio for the season.
On a technical note, the Buffaloes have been an excellent underdog under Gary Barnett. In fact, they lay claim to a sweet 14-5 ATS mark as a road pup since his arrival in 1999 and are 21-8 ATS as an underdog overall during this same span. Note as well that CU is 5-1 ATS their past six as a road dog of +3 or less and a perfect 3-0 ATS on the Big 12 trail for the season. We should also mention that the Buffaloes typically play their best football late in the year, as their 8-2 ATS record their past ten in November would indicate. And the fact Colorado is now 7-1 ATS their past eight series meetings with NU and smoked the Huskers 28-13 at this site two years ago is just icing on an already sweet looking cake.
