New Mexico Bowl: the pick

From Albuquerque -- Less than three hours until kickoff here at University Stadium. We've spent the week watching practice, speaking with coaches and players from both teams, and enjoying the fine Southwest cuisine. After all that, I think I'm ready to make a prediction. I'll make my pick after the jump.


As we've written throughout the week, Colorado State has a number of playmakers on both sides of the ball. The Cougars will have their hands full against individuals who could suit up for nearly any Pac-12 team. But the Rams have yet to beat a decent team this season, and I doubt the Cougars will be the first. Call it, WSU, 31-17.
