Game Previews:

What to Watch For:

Hawaii: How will they look while playing at 6am Hawaii time? Travel concerns may play a role in this one.

Boise State: This is their biggest game on paper. Both teams are 2-0 but against lighter opponents. Can they match the Cowboys speed and keep pace with their offense?

Wyoming: After two straight losses to P5 teams, can they bounce back with a big win? This would be a good game to develop their offense before conference play.

Colorado State: Are the Rams the team that lost their first two games or are they more like the one who beat Arkansas? This game may help us find the answer.

San Jose State: In another tough game for the Spartans, can they find their game a bit and escape with a moral victory or find some bright spots on Saturday?

Nevada: They didn’t have a good showing against Vandy, but how will the Wolf Pack measure up against Oregon State? Should be a competitive game.

New Mexico: They are playing in a rivalry game, but are starting their 3rd string Quarterback. How will Jones look after preparing to be the starter all week?

UNLV: Can the Rebels continue to mow down lesser competition? This is another game to get a big win as they prepare to make a splash in conference play.

San Diego State: This is the Aztecs last opportunity to make a statement against a PAC-12 team. How will the Aztecs respond after losing their QB for 4-6 weeks and can their running game overcome even less passing?

Fresno State: They laid an egg last week, losing a very winnable game. This game against the Bruins is very winnable too. Can the Bulldogs learn from last week and make a statement Saturday?
