Friday night’s Pac-12 Championship will feature a rematch of the Utah vs Washington game from earlier in September. Both teams have improved dramatically and Utah is in one sense, a completely different team. With a new QB (Shelley) and RB (Shyne) that the Huskies have (for the most part) not seen live, Utah will try to avenge their Week 3 loss. Washington won that game 21-7 and Vegas is predicting another low-scoring matchup as they’ve opened the total at 45 points.

Washington has won 11 of the 12 all-time meetings in this series. Utah’s only win came in 2015 when the Utes beat the Huskies in Seattle, 34-23.

Washington out-played Utah for most of the night on September 15th, as the Huskies routed the Utes, 21-7.

The Huskies caused three turnovers and held Utah to only 261 total yards.

Utah Failed to capitalize on the majority of their 3rd downs and a few of their red-zone opportunities.

Myles Gaskin ran wild for 143 yards on 30 carries and one touchdown.

Jake Browning threw for one touchdown and 155 yards.

On the Utes’ side, Zack Moss only rushed for 67 yards with one touchdown, and Huntley added 138 yards with one interception. Neither of these two players will be a factor in the Pac-12 Championship since they are both sidelined with injuries.

Highlights from that game:

Last note:
75% of the bets were placed on the Huskies when Vegas opened with a Wash -3 line. That heavy money income naturally forced oddsmakers to shift the line, which is now all the way up to Wash -5.5.
