Show us your picks: Week Four
LARAMIE -- When Wyoming's schedule was first released what were your realistic expectations during the non-conference portion?
Maybe 2-2? If the stars aligned, 3-1?
For the record, I said 3-1, the lone loss coming in Austin. I still think that will be the case after Appalachian State pays a visit to Laramie Saturday night. In fact, all the pickers think so, too.
This is a solid program making its way to the high plains. The Mountaineers have proven over the years they are not afraid to play anyone, anywhere, anytime -- and win. They upset Texas A&M in College State last September. Two straight seasons now they have given in-state foe North Carolina all it can handle. The Tar Heels escaped in double overtime in Week 2.
Everyone remembers this:
I'd argue if the Cowboys could've pulled off the miracle last Saturday night inside Darrell K. Royal Stadium, especially with back-up quarterback Evan Svoboda under center, that game would be talked about almost on the same level of App State's win over No. 4 Michigan in 2007.
That one, though, will always be bigger. The visitors weren't even in the FBS at the time.
We all think Air Force remains unbeaten after a trip to San Jose, and though we should all know better by now, we all have Oregon -- a three-touchdown favorite -- knocking off the Buffs in Eugene.
Here's this week's matchups and betting odds:
Appalachian State (+3) at Wyoming
Boise State (-7) at San Diego State
Air Force (-6) at San Jose State
New Mexico (+3.5) at UMass
Colorado State (+3) at Middle Tennessee
