Week 13 Predictions for the Mountain West Conference

I tried to get another celebrity to help me with the picks this week, but when I called Urban Meyer he said, "what is this Ew-ta that you speak of?" Then I couldn't catch up with LaVell's golf cart so...I am solo this week.

Last Week: 3-2
Overall: 22-5 (.814)
This Week:

Wyoming at Colorado St Friday 12pm The Mtn.
Why can't people accept that this isn't that big of a rivalry game. If you were to put a list of teams that Wyoming hates it would probably be: 1)BYU 2)Utah 3)Colorado St. The same list for CSU would most likely be: 1) Colorado 2)Air Force 3)BYU 4)Wyoming. From listening to coaches and players talk about this game it just doesn't mean that much to them in comparison to other games. The problem is that the Holy War is the best rivalry in the conference by far and the other teams want something like this for themselves. This year though the game means much more to Wyoming then CSU by far. With a loss a 4-1 start of the season would be followed by a 1-6 finish. The Pokes are the better team and should win this game.
Wyoming 24 CSU 10
Utah at # 23 BYU Saturday 12pm The Mtn/CSTV/Vs. (and still it won't get to as many people if they would just put the game on ESPN2)
The Holy War. This is the most anticipated game of the year in all of the conference. It is a shame that more of the media from around the country don't pay the homage that this rivalry deserves. Why? It is argued that this may be the best rivalry in the entire nation. If you you have questions about this pick any story on the or with more then three comments, and you would be hard pressed to find one without some type of comment about the game. Who will win? Read Friday as I break down the game further.
UNLV at New Mexico Saturday 3:30pm The Mtn.
The Lobos have to feel disappointed that they didn't make more of a game in Rice-Eccles. They left some many plays on the field. The fumble on the opening drive and the muffed punt really changed the face of that game. A visit from the Rebels for the last game of the regular season is just what is needed from the Lobos. Look for them to win big at home.
New Mexico 42 UNLV 14
TCU at San Diego St Saturday 6pm No TV
Things could get very interesting in the conference with a win from SDSU and a loss from BYU this week. That would put a lot on the table for the final game of the season in San Diego; BYU playing for an outright championship, and San Diego St. trying to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2003. It would take a miracle, and TCU isn't going to make it happen.
TCU 24 San Deigo st 17
