Show us your picks: Week 2
DEKALB, Ill., -- Well, we all picked the Cowboys to win last week.
That did happen -- barely.
Not only did Jen Kost get the most selections right last week -- 11-1 -- she also had the closest score prediction -- 34-14 -- which wasn't close at all. None of us predicted that Montana State would roll into Laramie and give the Pokes a 19-16 scare. It took an eight-play, 75-yard game-winning drive for the home team to survive in front of 27,000-plus inside War Memorial Stadium.
Here's how the records look from last week's picks:
Jen Kost: 11-1
Cody Tucker: 10-2
DJ Johnson: 10-2
Jared Newland: 10-2
Kyle Sedar: 10-2
Cooper Rothe: 10-2
Mat Ozee: 8-4
Ryan Newton: 8-4
We all got burned by Washington State in Week 1. The Cougars failed to take care of business at home against Utah State. We all nailed the Wyoming, Air Force, New Mexico, Oregon, Hawaii and San Diego State games.
Fresno State gave the Ducks all they could handle and New Mexico State put a scare into the Aztecs in the first half.
Here are this week's Mountain West games and the money lines from BetMGM: (Subject to change)
Wyoming (-6.5) at Northern Illinois
UTEP (+26.5) at Boise State
Air Force (-6) at Navy
New Mexico State (+19) at New Mexico
Vanderbilt (+6.5) at Colorado State
San Diego State (+2) at Arizona
UNLV (+34.5) at Arizona State
Hawaii (+11.5) at Oregon State
North Dakota at Utah State
Cal Poly at Fresno State
Idaho State at Nevada

The rules here are simple: Who wins and what's the final score of the Wyoming game?
We are excited this week to be joined by former Wyoming wide receiver Kofi Shuck. The Illinois native snagged 93 passes for 1,436 yards and eight touchdowns for the Cowboys from 1996-1999.
Shuck was a dynamic playmaker on a unit that included Wendell Montgomery, Brock Ralph, Tommy Nash and Brahms Derenoncourt, among others. Shuck also spent his freshman season with Marcus Harris, David Saraf and Richard Peace on the '96 Pacific Division title team that went 10-2.
Our guest picker this week is Lindsay Bugas, grand daughter of former UW broadcaster and 2005 Wyoming Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame Inductee, Ray Lansing.
Bugas is from Cheyenne and graduated from Wyoming in 2008. She is also a former Central Indian, which is never a bad thing.
Without further ado ...
