OUR PREDICTION: The Broncos are 10-1 against the spread in their last 11 games in September and have covered the number in 12 of their last 14 non-conference games as well. They're also 16-5 against the spread in their last 21 road games and are 28-11 against the number in their last 39 games overall. Granted, Western Michigan has a new coach and a new quarterback. But the Broncos have enough talent to matchup with a Trojans team that has been hyped all summer. I think this game is closer than people expect.
