Game of the Week Prediction - Minnesota vs Fresno State

I’m shocked that Minnesota is currently favored to win. I’d think the spread should be flipped the other way, favoring the Bulldogs by 3 at home. That said, Fresno State is looking for revenge after losing a close game at Minnesota last season. Minnesota is a solid Power 5 team that finished 7-6 last season. It would be another solid win for the Mountain West and a good win for the Fresno State program. If the Bulldogs lose, the defending Mountain West champs will start the season at 0-2.

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