Game Previews:

What to Watch For:

  • Fresno State: What will the Bulldogs do for an encore?
  • UNLV: Can the Rebels show any ability on defense to slow down teams down?
  • Boise State: Can the Broncos run the ball, block, or tackle with any consistency?
  • Utah State: The Aggies have been a second-half team; will that continue and can they play the same way in the first half?
  • San Jose State: A tune-up for the Spartans. Can they develop more receivers in the passing game?
  • Colorado State: The Rams showed signs of life last week but can their offense find any production going up against a ranked P5 team?
  • Wyoming: With the soft OCC schedule coming to an end, the Cowboys will need to turn in another performance like last week.
  • San Diego State: After beating two PAC-12 opponents, can the Aztecs avoid playing down to their competition this week?
  • Air Force: The Falcons should have no issue, but this is a chance to work on things, like their passing offense and passing defense.
  • Hawaii: The Bows really need to show signs of life and shore up their defensive struggles if they want to turn their season around.
  • New Mexico: After their payday games, this week is a good chance for the Lobos to get back on track and prepare for conference play.
