PICKING THE GAMES
Utah (plus 5) at San Diego State: The Aztecs are third nationally in scoring defense at 55.1 points against. Utah center Luke Neville is the league’s best player right now. Jim Boylen secretly wants to grab the microphone at Cox Arena and scream at people. San Diego State wins, but doesn’t cover. PICK: Utah
UNLV (minus 3.5) at Texas Christian: I would be worried for the Rebels if I didn’t have such clear images of how Lon Kruger sliced and diced Jim Christian up in an NCAA Tournament game last March when the latter was coaching Kent State. PICK: UNLV
BYU (minus 10) at Colorado State: The Cougars score more than Pamela Anderson. PICK: BYU
Air Force (plus 13) at New Mexico: A tough one. The Falcons aren’t near the threat they have been of late, but can Steve Alford stop whining to officials long enough to coach the Lobos to an easy win? Hmmm. PICK: NEW MEXICO
Record to date: 0-0
The next time you will see this record at .500 or above: Never.
