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.

Here's this week's matchups and betting odds (subject to change):

Wyoming (-8.5) at Colorado State

Fresno State (-4.5) at UNLV

New Mexico (+21.5) at Air Force

Boise State (-20.5) at Nevada

San Jose State (-2.5) at San Diego State

Utah State (-11.5) at Hawaii

Alabama (-11.5) at Ole Miss

Washington (+12.5) at Oregon

Baylor (-2.5) at Kansas State

Wisconsin (-1.5) at Iowa

Florida State (-7) at Syracuse

Georgia (-16.5) at Mississippi State

University of Wyoming’s Top 50 Football Players

During the summer of 2021, counted down the Top 50 football players in University of Wyoming history, presented by Premier Bone & Joint Centers, Worthy of Wyoming.

The rules are simple: What was the player's impact while in Laramie? That means NFL stats, draft status or any other accolade earned outside of UW is irrelevant when it comes to this list.

This isn't a one-man job. This task called for a panel of experts. Joining 7220's Cody Tucker are Robert GagliardiJared NewlandRyan Thorburn, and Kevin McKinney.

We all compiled our own list of 50 and let computer averages do the work. Think BCS -- only we hope this catalog is fairer.
