Game Previews:

What to Watch For:

  • Wolf Pack/Spartans: On paper it’s the best Mountain West game of the regular season. It features two of the top three teams and they are playing for the MWC championship.
  • Broncos/Cowboys: For Boise State, it’s win and their in. Reallly, it’s as long as the game above is played they are in. However, they haven’t played in 21 days. Wyoming is dealing with injuries at key spots and have not been able to find consistency on offense.
  • Aggies/Rams: Two teams who are ready for next year. The CSU offense should have a feast with the USU defense, but what about the reverse? It should be a competitive game.
  • Rebels/Rainbow Warriors: This is the last chance for a victory for UNLV. Will they be able to do it? For Hawaii, it’s a chance to end on a high note after the up and down season.
  • Bulldogs/Lobos: The Bulldogs are playing as well as anyone. New Mexico is coming off their first win and flying high. Can they build on it against better competition?
  • Aztecs/Cougars: The Aztecs have been on a downward spiral and the Cougars will be out for blood. This one likely won’t end well.
