MWC Report: Week 7


MWC week 6 pack it in, welcome week 7

With week 6 in the books already, this 2010 FBS season is going by quickly, next thing you know its bowl season already; can we halt this a bit so we can enjoy it before you know it football is gone from us again. Anyway, there were a couple surprises last week in the MWC and a majority of “yeah I knew that would happen” type of games; like the New Mexico and New Mexico State game, like I said don’t expect any offense in that game.

The Class Act in the MWC
TCU HORNED FROGS currently ranked 4th in the nation, they can thank Alabama for their lost and better TCU’s chances of a possible bid in the title game. They have an upcoming 3 game stretch that’ll be their meat of the schedule, they can tough it out and win out, who knows what’ll happen within the BCS Rankings. They welcome BYU this week, play 23rd ranked Air Force following week and got a date with another MWC powerhouse 11th ranked Utah, none are easy outs for the Horned Frogs. They’re currently the top ranked defense in the nation, 2nd in points allowed with 10.2 ppg and just had back to back shutouts to extend their regular season winning streak to 19. They are playing at home this week where they have outscored their opponents 152-17.

WEEK 7 GAMES:

UNLV @ Colorado State – if the Rams RB Mason can continue to run well, I’ll take the Rams in this one. UNLV QB Omar Clayton should keep this one interesting though but at home, Rams come out with the victory. UNLV – 17 @ CSU – 27

(11) Utah @ Wyoming – what are the chances for Wyoming to face TCU one week only to follow it up against Utah. Wyoming can play for pride, as I don’t think they’ll score a touchdown in this game neither. Look for Utah to get another blowout in as QB Wynn takes care of business, early and often. Utah – 52 Wyoming – 0

BYU @ (4) TCU – back to back shutouts and TCU is at home where they’ve outscored their opponents 152-17; yes I like their chances of winning another game to extend their regular season winning streak to 20, Dalton and Wesley will take care of business, easily. BYU – 14 @ TCU – 47

(23) Air Force @ San Diego State – I believe San Diego State got upset last week in the hands of BYU, look for a bounce back game but it wont come easy as the Falcons potent rushing attack will be a hard out for San Diego State. This should be a shootout with the home team coming out on top in this one. Aztec RB Ronnie Hillman will definitely have a bounce back game. AIR FORCE – 31 @ SDSU – 42
