I know you may not care about WAC football, and it's painful for you that this even exists, but bear with me, I'm an odd duck obsessed with inconsequential things.
Fresno State (-3) over WASHINGTON
The bulldogs are just too good and UW is just too bad. Oregon is a damn good team, and a gutsy, well-coached one, and they barely squeaked by FSU. Washington is getting better, but theyâ€™re still a mess. This could be close, but I think Fresno wins by at least a touchdown, especially after getting fired up by coach Pat Hill all week. Add in that theyâ€™re still pissed at the Pac-10 in general and I like the Bulldogs in this one, which I said already.
Boise State (-7) over WYOMING
Boise is insanely good, Iâ€™m telling you. And Wyoming — even though they barely lost at Virginia last week — is kind of a tub of crap, and their starting center is gonna be out for this game. Boiseâ€™s running back is doing his best OJ Simpson (minus the double murder) impression. If anything, this spread seems a bit low to me.
Idaho State (+13) over IDAHO
Idaho sucks. I mean, they really, really suck. Theyâ€™re borderline 1-AA. Idaho State IS 1AA, but I just canâ€™t see Idaho beating anyone — let alone an in-state rival — by more than 10 points. Just a gut feeling.
Utah (-20) over UTAH STATE
Utah State is almost as horrible as Idaho. Utah is coming off a thrashing of a 1-AA team, and I think are ready to prove they can do it against a 1-A team after that rough Week 1 loss to UCLA. I mean, Utah State is really, really bad. Angry Mormons should be heavily involved.
