This Saturday, the No. 22-ranked Utah Utes will square off against the Colorado State Rams in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl. The Utes are slight -3.5 favorites, but don’t underestimate the Rams. A nine-game winning streak from September to November had the NCAA betting community wondering what the Rams were capable of.

Expect Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson to be front and center at the year-end event. He threw for 37 touchdowns this season and an impressive 3,779 yards. His powerful arm has already helped his franchise overachieve in 2014 (they were 10-2 against the spread) and has shown no signs of slowing down.
However, Utah is favored for a reason. While they may not have put forth numbers as intriguing as their opponents, they went up against top-ranked opponents. The Rams didn’t face any top 25 opponents; whereas, the Utes faced five of them, and won two.
With what ended up being an 8-4 record (compared to Colorado State’s 10-2 record), Utah managed to win enough to get in contention for the Las Vegas Bowl this December. It’s that valuable experience against top-caliber competition that gives them the edge.
