Week 4 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a Pac-12 showdown between the UCLA Bruins and Colorado Buffaloes. The Bruins' perfect season was in jeopardy last week but they managed to beat South Alabama, 32-31, thanks to a 9-0 effort in the fourth quarter.

Meanwhile, the Buffaloes' season has gone in the opposite direction. Colorado dropped to 0-3 following a 49-7 blowout against Minnesota last week, marking the third straight contest that Karl Dorrell's squad has given up at least 38 points.

UCLA enters this contest as a huge road favorite on the spread. This 2 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 56.5, which is around average compared to the rest of this week's college football projected totals.

UCLA vs Colorado Prediction & Pick

While this rivalry has gone back and forth in recent years, UCLA has won 12 of its all-time meetings against Colorado. If that wasn't impressive on its own, the Bruins destroyed the Buffaloes, 44-20, last year in their most recent meeting.

Nothing that Colorado has done this season indicates that this weekend's result will be any different. The Buffaloes have looked horrific through three weeks, giving up 42.7 points per game (No. 118) while only scoring an average of 10.0 points per game (T-No. 125).

UCLA is far from perfect, but its 3-0 record has me believing a lot more in the Bruins than whatever it is the Buffaloes have been doing this season.

Final Score Prediction: UCLA: 42 | Colorado: 10

UCLA vs Colorado Best Bet

All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

As far as the best bet goes, I'm comfortable backing UCLA as the 22.5-point favorite. Colorado has lost its first three games by an average margin of 32.7 points. Taking last season's blowout into account as well, I could easily see the Bruins crushing the Buffaloes yet again.

Bet: UCLA -22.5 (-110)
