NCAA Football: Pac-12 Media Day Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The No. 11 Washington Huskies take on the No. 17 Utah Utes tonight in Santa Clara, Calif., with the Pac-12 championship on the line. A Utah win would give Kyle Whittingham his first conference title since the Utes joined the Pac-12 in 2011, while a win for the Huskies would deliver the championship trophy to Montlake for the second time in three years. Both teams have found success this year thanks to their suffocating defenses and effective rushing attacks, and while Utah is down its starting quarterback and running back, Jason Shelley and Armand Shyne have both proven to be effective replacements. On the other hand, Washington’s offense is as healthy as its has been all season, with Myles Gaskin, Hunter Bryant and Trey Adams all looking like they are operating at or near their full potentials.

The betting line for today’s game is set at Washington -6.0 while the over/under sits at 45.0, meaning that bettors have predicted a final score of Washington 26, Utah 20.
