The Mountain West Conference has a light football schedule this week and none of them looks to be competitive.
The Mountain West Conference's schedule for Week 8 is a bit light with just three games on the schedule. None of the three games appears to be all that competitive, but Colorado State might be able to make it a fairly close game against the UTEP Miners. Here is the weekend's schedule:
New Mexico Lobos (0-6, 0-1 MWC) vs. TCU Horned Frogs (4-2, 2-0 MWC), 12:00 p.m. MT, The Mtn. - The Horned Frogs opened as 40-1/2 point favorites and it has since moved to 43 and 43-1/2 points on other lines, according to Odds Shark.
