It is the Mountain West Conference opener for New Mexico and Boise State and both probably do not mind coming in on a short week after losing games they should have won last Saturday.

The Lobos were a 7.5 point home favorite against in-state rival New Mexico State and because they committed four turnovers, they trailed the Aggies 30-5 after three quarters. New Mexico scored 23 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, but came up two digits short in 30-28 upset loss.

Boise State was cruising with 31-10 lead at Washington State, then made several unforced errors and the Cougars cashed them in the fourth quarter to send the contest to OT, where the Broncos lost 47-44 in three extras sessions.

The college football odds have Boise State as 14.5-point home favorites with a total of 58 for this ESPN encounter that goes at 8:00 Eastern. What side should you be on?
