Game Previews:

What to Watch For:

  • Boise State: Will the Broncos put on an encore against Marshall, We Are? Or will they show up with an emotional hangover after a big win against Florida State?
  • Colorado State: The Rams displayed a great offense in their opener, but not so much on defense. With their rivalry game out of the way, how will they regroup and readjust against an FCS opponent?
  • San Diego State: A win is a win, but the stakes are much higher now. UCLA isn’t a top team right now but they sure are better than Weber State. The Aztecs will need to show something on offense, but can they?
  • Wyoming: After taking it to Wyoming, there should be little issue with Texas State. Can the Cowboys establish the passing game at all this week?
  • Utah State: After losing a heartbreaker, can they regroup against Stony Brook? Will they show up just to get through the game or show up to prove to everyone they belong in the discussion of one of the top teams in the conference?
  • Nevada: Can the Wolf Pack slay the giant twice? To do this, their defense needs to adjust and show they can keep up with the passing attack of the Ducks.
  • San Jose State: They built confidence with the opening win, but now the competition is getting raised. Will the Spartans look as good as last week against a better team?
  • UNLV: The Rebels had a great opening game, everything was as it should be. Next up, is a good Arkansas State team. Can they keep up the good play for another week?
  • Fresno State: The Bulldogs looked good in their loss to the Trojans. Now they get a rematch with a Minnesota team who barely beat them last year. Can they rebound and get a win against P5 team?
  • Hawaii: After their bye week, the Rainbows Warriors continue their tour of the PAC12. They should be the Beavers, but can they avoid the turnovers that almost cost them the game last week?
