PICK: I’m probably staying with Wyoming. The Cowboys are coming off a pretty good overall effort against Utah State. Wyoming’s offense managed 529 total yards and 28 first downs. Defensively, the Cowboys allowed just 217 yards to the Aggies with 13 first downs and a 5-of-15 rate on third-down tries. This will be a similar opportunity for a big defensive effort, and I think Wyoming will get it.
As for Hawaii, they’re reeling after giving away their game to Colorado State. The Warriors didn’t do too badly on defense, but the offense managed just 15 first downs, 257 total yards and a 4-of-12 success rate on third downs. I don’t see it getting much better here.
