BYU Bye brings new Games of Interest


For BYU Cougar fans, today is a slow day with the Cougars being idle.  So what games around the conference are going to be the best to watch today?

At 2pm EST you can watch the San Diego St. Aztecs take on the Wyoming Cowboys.  This should not be much of a game, but a win for the Aztecs will secure their first bowl game bid since 1993. That also means securing their first non-losing season, in as much time.  As a San Diegan, I am looking forward to seeing just a little SDSU success.

But the real game of interest today is...

The Utah Utes at the Air Force Falcons.  This game kicks off at 7:30 EST and marks the first week of the season where the Utes have to play a quality opponent.  The Falcons are beat up, but I would not underestimate them returning home to take on Utah.   Utah has historically struggled with Air Force, especially in Colorado Springs.  While I would expect Utah to win the game, nothing is guaranteed against the fight and determination of the cadets.  

Those are the two games I'm watching from the conference today.  New Mexico Lobos v Colorado St. Rams seems to be a waste of time, although I am rooting for a Rams victory.  Then to round out the day the TCU Horned Frogs take on the UNLV Rebels.  I think we all know how that game is going to end.  One thing to watch for in that game is to see if TCU continues to struggle early against inferior opponents.

So far this year, TCU looks very beatable to me, which leads me to believe that when its all said and done, the Utes will be the conference champs and the ones headed to a BCS bowl.
