Game of the Week Prediction - BYU at San Diego State

Well, the final week of the season might be a little less exciting after the MWC division winners were decided last weekend.

Boise State/Colorado State will hold implications in the NY6 race for the Group of 5 should the Broncos lose. I don’t see that happening, but it could happen if Boise State comes out flat after clinching the Mountain Division last week and Colorado State comes out fired up on Senior Day and plays like this is their bowl game (which it pretty much is).

Wyoming/Air Force should be a good game. These teams have played some good games in recent years (like last year). The drawback for me would be implications. You’d like to beat a conference rival, but a win/loss likely will not mean much for bowl implications.

Army/Hawaii should be a good game. The spread is closer for Army than it was for San Diego State last week. After Hawaii clinched the West Division last week, this game might mean more to an Army team that needs a win to keep bowl hopes alive.

So with all of that, I went with BYU/San Diego State as my Game of the Week. It should be a good game. Beyond that, some history between these teams. Also, it would be nice for BYU (the former conference member) to actually be beaten by a MWC team. This year, BYU has taken care of the MWC, beating Utah State in a state rivalry game as well as Boise State (the reason the Broncos are not the front-runner for the NY6 bowl right now).

Let us know which game you think will be the Game of the Week in Week Fourteen.
