Huskies favored by 14.5 points over Colorado

One sign of Washington’s emerging national perception as a program on the rise can be sign in the wide point spread on Saturday’s game with Colorado (or maybe it’s a sign of a lack of faith in the Buffs — take your pick).

Anyway, UW is favored by 14.5 points over the Buffs.

It’s the most UW has been favored in a game against an FBS team since the Huskies were a 24-point favorite over WSU in 2009.

It’s also one of the largest spreads UW has been favored by since 2003, after which its streak of 27 straight non-losing seasons came to an end.

Since then, UW has been favored by double digits just eight times.

Here’s a look at each of those games:

2004, San Jose State, favored by 17, won 21-6
2005, Idaho, favored by 13, won won 34-6
2006, San Jose State, favored by 20, won 35-29
2006, Stanford, favored by 19, lost 20-3
2009, Idaho, favored by 20, won 42-23
2009, WSU, favored by 24, won 30-0
2010, Syracuse, favored by 13, won 41-20
2011, Eastern Washington, favored by 16, won 30-27

As you can see, UW is 7-1 straight-up in those games, and 3-5 against the spread.

As for this season, the Huskies are 4-1 against the spread, winning the last four in a row.
In other Pac-12 games this weekend:

— USC is a 3-point favorite at Cal on Thursday night;
— Pitt is a 6.5-point favorite over visiting Utah;
— BYU is a 1.5-point favorite at Oregon State;
— Oregon is a 14.5-point favorite over visiting Arizona State;
— and Stanford is a 20-point favorite at Washington State.
