Thursday
Utah -3
 v. Pittsburgh
I look at this game like this-- would you rather be breaking in a new defense at home or a new QB on the road?  Utah will have the offense to stay one step ahead of the Panthers the whole way and the rowdy crowd in Rice-Eccles should take care of the rest.

USC -21 @ Hawaii
The Trojans have plenty of pent up aggression after a tumultuous off-season, and jet-lag be damned they are going to unleash the fury on the helpless 'Bows.

Minnesota -1 @ Middle Tennessee State
No Dwight Dasher?  Big problem.  Life lesson learned- don't borrow gambling money from octogenarians.

Saturday
CSU +12 v.
CU
More often then not this game ends up coming down to the wire, take the points.

Washington +3  @ BYU
Jake Locker's revenge coupled with a BYU squad distracted by expansion talks equals a tough loss for the Cougars.

TCU -13 v. Oregon State
Anytime you have a QB making his first career start on the road against a Gary Patterson coached defense you can go ahead and lay the points.

Boise State -2.5 v. Virginia Tech
Virgina Tech has an impressive running game but it won't be enough to keep pace with the Broncos.
