I’m on Washington in this one. I just can’t trust the Tritons to keep this one close as they’ve already had some defensive issues against subpar opposition like Idaho this season and the follow-up against Seattle didn’t inspire a whole lot of confidence. Washington has stumbled a couple of times this season, but they looked good beating up on lesser teams and I think they can get a win over UC-San Diego by 16-17 points. I’ll lay it and play it with Washington here.
