2016 Mountain West title game predictions

Who are the experts and computers taking in the title game?

NCAA Football: California at San Diego State Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Mountain West title game is this Saturday evening between San Diego State and Wyoming and the oddsmakers have this game at a 6.5-point edge to the road Aztecs. That is odd in itself since Wyoming won last time against San Diego State and at Laramie.

Instead of just looking at what Las Vegas has to say about this championship tilt let’s look around at what other people and computer projections say about this game.

Before we get to the experts Jeremy and Matt both made their picks in the title game podcast.

Jeremy: Wyoming 24, San Diego State 21

Matt: Wyoming 31, San Diego State 21

San Diego State 31, Wyoming 24 - It was only a matter of time before Craig Bohl turned Wyoming around, while Rocky Long quietly continues to win, win and win at SDSU. I hope you’ve paid attention to Donnel Pumphrey this year. He may pass Ron Dayne’s all-time rushing yardage record.

Team Rankings and numberfire

Both predict a win for Wyoming with numberfire going with San Diego State win by double-digits.
