Halftime: Colorado 10, Utah 0

Well, who saw this coming?

Colorado, owners of the worst defense in the Pac-12, pitched a first half shutout and is leading 10-0 on the road, where it has lost 24 consecutive games.

If this holds up, it means that UCLA will be the Pac-12 South Division champion, whether it beats USC on Saturday or not.

The Bruins presently have a one-game lead on Arizona State and Utah and they own the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Sun Devils, who play California tonight.

The Buffaloes outgained Utah 254 to 39 yards. Their time of possessions advantage is 20:48 to 9:12.

The half was complete domination by a 2-10 team inside the formidable house of a Utes squad that has won four in a row.

Utah gets the second-half kickoff. While 10 points isn't a huge margin, the Utes conservative offense isn't built to overcome big deficits. That first possession at least needs to include a couple of first downs and some offensive rhythm.

A big upset certainly would take away the intrigue for the rest of the weekend.
