Why Colorado can cover
Oregon State’s struggles have come primarily on the road this season, as it has lost two of its last three road games. The Beavers lost to Arizona as 3-point road favorites last week, allowing a critical 14-0 run in the fourth quarter. Quarterback DJ Uiagalelei completed just 16 of 30 passes for 218 yards-he has been held under 300 passing yards in every game this season.
Colorado’s offense has been putting up huge numbers all season, powered by junior quarterback Shedeur Sanders. He has thrown for 2,637 yards, 22 touchdowns and just three interceptions, going over 300 passing yards on five occasions. The Buffaloes have not lost a home game by more than seven points in four tries this season, and Oregon State has not won a road game against a Power 5 team by 13-plus points.
