Game Previews:

What to Watch For:

  • Broncos/Warriors: In this week’s edition of “Matchup Of the Year”, the two current best teams in the conference face off in Boise. Which defense will slow down the opposing offense enough to win? Can the BSU run game stop making opponents look like the 85 Bears? Will the turnover-prone or ball-security version of Hawaii’s offense show up on Saturday?
  • Wolf Pack/Spartans: A win in this game may help Nevada salvage their season. It’s also essential for SJSU in their quest to reach a bowl. In another new twist, Malik Henry will be the starting QB for Nevada. He the controversial player from Last Chance U Season 3.
  • Rams/Lobos: One of these teams has to win right?
  • Bulldogs/Falcons: Winner probably takes a commanding lead in being the 4th best team in the MWC this year. The loser may have their season slipping away.
  • Cowboys/Aztecs: If you like running the ball and strong defenses, this game is for you. First one to throw a touchdown pass wins?
  • Rebels: Playing an SEC team, even a bottom-tier one, probably isn’t what the doctor ordered as UNLV tries to keep their heads above water.
