Five team captains for Texas – left tackle Samuel Cosmi, safety Caden Sterns, defensive end Joseph Ossai, defensive tackle Ta’Quon Graham and safety Chris Brown – have all opted out and won’t be on the field for the Longhorns in this game.
Colorado had its second winning season since 2006 and is extremely motivated for this game after having three regular-season games canceled due to COVID-19 issues. Colorado’s offense is led by running back Jarek Broussard, who ran for 813 yards with three touchdowns in five games this season.
The Buffaloes’ ground attack is averaging 218 rushing yards per game at 4.7 yards per carry versus teams that would combine to allow just 4.5 yards per rush attempt to a mediocre offense. Colorado’s offensive line has provided excellent protection for quarterback Sam Noyer, yielding just three sacks in five games.
The Buffaloes should have success moving the chains against a Texas defense that allowed 43.5 points and 472 total yards per game on the road this season. Texas head coach is 22-28 ATS as a favorite, including 13-18 ATS following a straight-up win.
The Longhorns are a money-burning 4-11 ATS as bowl favorites, including 0-6 ATS versus teams entering off a SU and ATS loss.
With Colorado head coach Karl Dorrell standing at 19-8 ATS as an underdog, including 12-1 ATS in his last thirteen games, grab the points with the Buffaloes as Oskeim Sports’ Free Alamo Bowl Winner!
