The big game of the weekend is TCU playing at Boise State with the winner having the inside track for the Mountain West title, but we all know that there is more at stake for Boise State: A BCS bowl game. While that game has the most implications there are other games that have bowl implications.
Wyoming is sitting at five games and needs to get to seven for a bowl game, and while beating Air Force is not a necessity to get to seven wins it could happen with the resurgence of Wyoming's play of late.
San Diego State and Colorado State, well that game is featuring two teams that have underachieved, so one of them has to win. Then the pillow fight of the week is UNLV vs. New Mexico and I think UNLV can pull off a double-digit win, because I feel that UNLV is trying out there while New Mexico is in a deep tail spin and going through the motions.
