Idaho State vs. Northern Colorado Prediction

I’m on the over here. These are two teams that don’t play a whole lot of defense and the meetings in the regular season had a lot of back and forth and always showed potential to end up being track meets. I think this is going to be another exciting one here, so give me the over.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
