Arizona vs Colorado Game Preview

Why Colorado Will Win

Enough already, Colorado. It's time to get the running game going.

It'll come up with one of its better performances of the year, but the defense will let the offense down in the second half as Arizona goes on scoring drive after scoring drive to take over.
