Rivalry games proliferate the week 4 schedule.
By the end of Friday night, a winner will be crowned in The Banner Game, the Battle of the Bulls, the Duel in the Desert and more. It should make for a special night of football, and Las Vegas Sun sports editors Ray Brewer and Case Keefer think they have it all figured out.
They only disagree on one game this week.
Read below to find all their picks.
