MWC predictions: Week 6
I know, I know. One week it’s power rankings, the next week it’s predictions. I have no consistency—I’m well aware.
Here are my predictions for MWC teams in week six. Disagree if you dare.
Oregon State at No. 15 Utah: Quizz Rodgers is a tough little guy, but the Beavers won’t have enough to knock off a motivated Utah team at home. Utah 34, OSU 21.
No. 8 BYU at Utah State: This game will be over by halftime. Actually, it will be over after BYU’s first touchdown. BYU 49, USU 6
UNLV at Colorado State: Ah, the much-anticipated battle of “Who disappointed the MWC the most in week 5?” Colorado State pulls out a close one. CSU 17, UNLV 14.
Navy at Air Force: The battle for the Commander-in-Chief Trophy rages on. Rivaled only by the battle of who could care less (Ben Folds Five). Air Force 23, Navy 21
San Diego State at TCU: Sheesh. How many cupcake teams does TCU need on its schedule this year? TCU 42, SDSU 21.
Wyoming at New Mexico: Strap yourselves in, people, because this could turn into an old-fashioned, hootin’ tootin’ shoot out real quick. Or it could suck. New Mexico 15, Wyoming 9 (all field goals).
NON-MWC UPSET OF THE WEEK: No. 13 Auburn at No. 19 Vanderbilt. Have you seen Auburn play the past couple of weeks? I rest my case. Vandy 20, Auburn 17.
