Washington State Cougars vs. Utah Utes

Utah Hosts Wazzu in Pac 12 College Football Betting Matchup

Following a 23-30 loss at USC has Utah’s Pac 12 and nation credibility again come into question.  The Utes were College Football Betting favorites to win the Conference but the Men of Troy handled them with a third-string quarterback.  Washington State had an even worse Week Four.  Consider Wazzu blew a 49-17 third-quarter lead in a 67-63 home loss to UCLA.  Head coach Mike Leach is celebrated for raising the Cougars program.  However almost every season his team will suffer a confounding loss.  This week the Utes and Cougs will try to pick up the pieces and recover.
