Why Washington Will Win

There’s no need to mess with this, and there’s no need to get cute.

The Huskies have had two weeks off since slugging their way through a 19-7 win over Oregon State on the road, and the exact same formula should work.

Start running, keep running, and pound, pound, pound.

The offensive line wasn’t able to do anything against the Utah defensive front, and the ground attack has been a bit hit-or-miss, but this isn’t hard.

When Washington runs more than 186 yards, it wins – 6-0. 186 or under? 0-4.

Most teams on the Colorado slate don’t like to commit to the ground game and wing it around the yard – and there’s a reason. The Buff secondary gives up a whole slew of big plays and allowed over 300 yards per game through the air. It’ll be tempting for UW to start throwing, but again, take control with the ground game and all will be fine.

Oregon ran early on, ended up getting a slew of defensive stops after a few decent drives, and finished with 252 rushing yards. Air Force? 284 yards – win. UCLA? 200 yards – win.

Why Colorado Will Win

Okay, QB Steven Montez. Time to come up with something special.

He’s 0-3 against the Huskies and hasn’t been able to get anything consistently going. If he’s not great, forget about it.

Part of the reason why Washington lost the games this year when it didn’t run wild is because it struggled against the decent passing days by the other side.

That wasn’t the case in the loss to Cal and its run D, but Oregon’s Justin Herbert was sharp, Utah’s Tyler Huntley was terrific, and Stanford got a stunning day out of backup Davis Mills, who came close to hitting 300 yards.

Herbert, Huntley and Mills happened to come up with the three biggest passing days of the season allowed by the Washington defense.

The magic mark this year seems to be 280 yards. Get there, beat the Dawgs. Montez has thrown for that or more four times this year, but even when he’s on, he’ll need his defense to do its part – it wasn’t able to do that when the Buff passing game worked against USC.

In the final home game of the year, and with two weeks off since the win over Stanford, it all has to work now to stay alive for a bowl game.

What’s Going To Happen

Washington’s rested lines are going to take over early on.

It’s not going to get ugly – the Buffs will bring the energy at home – but they’re just not scoring enough. They haven’t cleared more than 16 points in four of their last five games, and they’re going to struggle to get into any sort of a rhythm this week.

Washington will run for well over 200 yards and have the ball for more than 35 minutes in a workmanlike win.
