Temple also beats a Big Ten opponent in Maryland, and Ohio State edges past TCU. With tough games comes tough uniforms. Let's take … Continue reading Best Uniforms from Week 3
Boise might not have been ready for the big time just yet If nothing else, we can certainly agree that they need to figure some things out on special teams before it completely torpedoes their entire season. The Broncos had a punt blocked in the first half that gave the Cowboys the ball first and … Continue reading What We Learned About the Mountain West Conferencein Week Three
Welcome to The Most Interesting Matchups, the series about interesting gridiron matchups (get it?) from the upcoming season, as taken from the series' history.

I have to rule out teams like UTSA … Continue reading The 5 Most Interesting Mountain West Matchups this Season
So UNLV football is in a bit of an enviable position. Their football program, while long-suffering, is perhaps beginning to show some signs of life after going outside the box to hire Tony Sanchez, a man with no prior collegiate coaching experience of any kind (but with strong high school connections).

BYU @ Utah State - BYU -2.5 I still have no idea why BYU is favored in this game. Tanner Mangum is out, and the Cougs have barely a heartbeat. In the meantime, Utah State is coming off a huge conference win where the offense was firing on all cylinders. Aggies if you lose this … Continue reading A Preview of Week 5’s MWC Action
Takes from last week Going 2-2 plus hitting on the parlay isn't bad for week 1 match-ups. I thought too highly of Colorado State and Arizona State couldn't quite handle that Sun Belt heat. So far I am 5-2 overall and 1-0-1 for parlays on the season. Remember, picks are listed in order of … Continue reading Get’em While They’re Hot: Week 2 Picks
