The Northern Colorado Bears have had issues at both ends of the floor through 6 games, and they’ve been beaten up whenever playing decent competition. The New Mexico Lobos haven’t had the toughest schedule in the world, but they look like an MWC contender, and they’re not a team I’m eager to step in front of right now. I’ll lay the chalk.
