Washington has won six in a row against Colorado, but this one is different. The Buffaloes are the Cinderella Story of the college football season, but faces their toughest opponent yet.
Both teams are stout on defense, but the edge in this one comes down to quarterback play. Jake Browning, of Washington, is one of the best quarterbacks in the nation, and will showcase that ability against one of the toughest defenses in the country.
