It’s Thursday and the Mountain West is in action. Here is all that you need to know.

Thursday, November 5th

Utah State vs Nevada (5:00 PM MT) | Coverage: FS1

Wyoming vs Colorado State (7:00 PM MT) | Coverage: CBS Sports

Game Previews:

What to Watch For:

  • Aggies/Wolf Pack: These are two teams going in completely different directions. Nevada is firing on all cylinders while Utah State is having trouble getting the engine to start. For the Wolf Pack, stick to their formula and don’t change a thing. For the Aggies, keep committing to the run game and their pass defense will need to step up in a big way.
  • Cowboys/Rams: The Border War doesn’t figure to be particularly close. The CSU offense would be best with O’Brien leading the charge and leaning on the passing attack. They should look to establish that. Wyoming beat Hawaii last week by negating their passing game and it should be even easier this week. This is a good opportunity for the Cowboys to keep developing their passing game.
