Writer Hank Corless seems to agree with Boise State being favorites by 2.5 points (A field goal minus half a point for Mario Yakoo eating a corndog on the line.)
They all seem to agree on every game except ours. Side note: Who else wants to see Virginia upset Notre Dame? Or Hawaii upset Ohio Sta...hahahaha, okay, nevermind!
Once again, a divided panel. (Please blow out BYU, Broncos!)
They pick Boise State to win and cover the spread. We'd better win by at least a field goal.
They simulate games and BSU wins 58.4% of the time.
It's short enough, I'll just quote it:
BYU won a game it should have lost due to a Hail Mary, and Boise State, thanks to ridiculously poor special teams, failed to cover a game it should have easily covered. Betting against Week 1 overreactions.
This _________* writer seemed to think Finley looked "lost against one of the Pac-12's worst teams" last Friday. Well I disagree! I Think his first half was great, and Washington is going to find their stride behind a young genius!
*Mad lib a disparaging adjective
They pick BSU to not cover a 1.5 spread (according to them). I'd guess this means they're predicting a BYU win. Bad Bleacher Report!
The lines are-a-changin'
Here's a change: Mark Schlabach has us in the Fiesta Bowl against Oregon, while Brett McMurphy has us in the Las Vegas bowl against Cal. (We all know Cal likes to make up rules.)
McMurphy thinks Utah State will represent the G5 teams in the Fiesta Bowl. Uh... did he see their performance against an FCS team?
Go Broncos! (See you in the gamethread!)
