Show Us Your Picks: Week 11
LARAMIE -- The homers are out in full force this week.
All eight of us, which includes guest pickers and former Wyoming football players, Tony Kapushion and Mike Schenbeck, think the Cowboys pull off their seventh win of the season Saturday night in Fort Collins.
If the visitors can pull that off they will be 5-1 in Mountain West play with a rather large tilt with Boise State awaiting them next Saturday inside War Memorial Stadium.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves too much here. The 114th edition of the Border War is on the horizon and Wyoming needs to scoop up its third straight trophy -- the Bronze Boot -- before the focus shifts to the Broncos and that battle for the top spot in the Mountain Division.
Colorado State is 2-7 under first-year head coach Jay Norvell. The Rams won in his return to Reno and took care of Hawaii at home three weeks ago. Since, they've lost two straight, including a 28-16 setback at San Jose State last Saturday night. CSU's offensive front allowed nine sacks in that loss and has now given up 43 of those through nine games. Yikes.
