Wyoming pulled off one of its biggest wins in recent memory, knocking off #13 Boise State, 30-28 in Laramie, while #11 Wisconsin needed OT to defeat #8 Nebraska in B1G 10 play while #8 Baylor saw its unblemished mark get hooked by the horns of texas in Austin in Week 9. Let’s see what we learned west of the Mississippi River from a very important Saturday of College Football.


Wyoming Sends #13 Boise Back To Own Private Idaho, Wisconsin Shucks Huskers

Wyoming scored on a Safety—Boise State QB Brett Rypien was sacked and subsequently fumbled the ball out of the End Zone—with less than 2 minutes to go at Home in Laramie on Saturday night, upsetting the #13 Broncos, 30-28 in MWC play, and ending a 22-game losing streak to ranked teams. Wyoming (6-2 SU, 2-6 ATS) came into the game as 14½-point underdogs to Boise State (6-2 SU, 4-3 ATS) and has now W4 SU and ATS while the Broncos have L3 straight ATS and 6 of their L7.


#11 Wisconsin (6-2 SU/ATS) knocked off previously unbeaten #7 Nebraska (7-1 SU, 5-2-1 ATS) in Madison in OT, 23-17, but failed to cover ATS as big 9-point chalks. The Cornhuskers will travel to Columbus to play #2 Ohio State in B1G 10 play on Saturday in Week 10, although some of the luster of that game has been taken off with Nebraska’s loss to the Badgers in Week 9 and with 2 Losses themselves (MICH, OSU), Wisconsin (300/1 to win CFP National Championship at BetDSI—an A+ grade sportsbooks)—is pretty much out of the championship picture.


Baylor Bounced From Ranks of Unbeaten by Texas, #4 Washington Outmuscles Utah in SLC

Besides #10 West Virginia hurting the Big 12’s chances of an CFP berth by losing at Oklahoma State in Week 9, conference-mate #8 Baylor also suffered its first Loss, falling to Texas in Austin, 35-34, on a late FG and a big win for Longhorns Head Coach Charlie Strong. So, by bye Baylor (6-1 SU, 2-5 ATS, 1-6 O/U). QB Jake Browning (7/1 to win Heisman Trophy, Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook) and #4 Washington (8-0 SU, 4-4 ATS, 7-1 O/U) continued to impress, defeating host Utah, 31-24 in Salt Lake City but not covering ATS (WASH -10, BetDSI) in a very inflated line against a good Utes team. 

And Oregon (3-5 SU) finally covered a game ATS—in week 9—beating Arizona State at Home at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, 54-35 (ORE -9½, JustBet), to move to 1-6-1 ATS on the season with Oregon and Head Coach Mark Richter (24-21-1 ATS) now 1-8-1 in its L10. TCU, Nevada and Arizona from west of the Big Muddy—as well as Georgia Southern and FAU from east of the Mississippi River—are all 1-7-0 ATS, the worst ATS marks in College Football, while #23 Colorado is the only undefeated team against the number (8-0 ATS). The Buffaloes welcome UCLA to Boulder Saturday in Week 10 action.
