While college football fans outside the Pac-12 paid attention to the conference’s higher-profile Oregon Ducks, USC Trojans and UCLA Bruins, the Colorado State football team almost upset its way into the Pac-12 championship game. Today the Colorado State Rams get to show the entire nation their goods as they face the Utah Utes in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl. If you can’t watch Utah Utes vs Colorado State Rams football game live on TV, you can watch Utah vs Colorado State football online free Las Vegas Bowl live streaming online as well.
Kickoff for the Las Vegas Bowl is 3:30 EST / 12:30 PST from Sam Boyd Stadium. In spite of its 10-2 record, the Colorado State football team has got to enter the game as an underdog, as the 8-4 Utah Utes played some dominant football this season.
The Colorado State football team enters today’s Las Vegas Bowl with a far better record than their Las Vegas Bowl opponents. Yet fans who haven’t yet gotten to watch Utah football online or on TV that the Utes could very well have been in the Pac-12 championship game.
As you watch Colorado State football online free live streaming or on TV today, you’ll see the Rams take on a Utes team that beat some heavy hitters this year. For instance, most college football fans will have no idea before they watch Las Vegas Bowl online live that Utah football had wins over USC, UCLA Stanford and Michigan. In fact, the Utes were in the hunt for the Pac-12 South title and the conference championship game until their 42-10 loss to Arizona in the final weeks.
Utah defensive end Nate Orchard is a big reason for the Utes’ success. Orchard averaged 1.46 sacks per game, tops in the nation, and had 17.5 sacks all season, second in all FBS schools. He’ll have his work cut out for him as we watch Utah football online Las Vegas Bowl today, as the Colorado State Rams have a great one-two punch on offense.
Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson consistently puts up 300-plus yards per game, and he threw 32 touchdowns this season versus just six interceptions. By keeping defenses honest against the pass, running back Dee Hart was able to average 6.7 yards per carry on his way to 16 TDs. The Utes’ Orchard had 20 tackles for loss this season, so Hart’s production may drop a bit, putting extra pressure on Grayson as we watch Utah football vs Colorado State football online free today in the Las Vegas Bowl.
It’s not often we see the team with the lesser record favored in a bowl game, but that’s just what we have today. Fans who missed out on Utah football this season, in particular, could be in for a treat. You can watch Utah vs Colorado State football online free Las Vegas Bowl live stream on the ABC Live website.
