Here are my weekly Mountain West football power rankings heading into this week’s games.
1. Fresno State (6-1, 3-0): Remains in the top spot and remains — at this point of the season — as the most complete team in the conference. The defense has allowed one touchdown and 13 points over the last three games.
2. Utah State (6-1, 3-0): The Aggies’ prolific offense was slowed down considerably by Wyoming last week, but they found a way to win with defense and special teams. Good teams find different ways to win, especially on the road.
3. San Diego State (6-1, 3-0): Like Utah State, San Diego State has won six straight. It isn’t always pretty, unless you like good defense. The Aztecs need to clean some things up with penalties and sloppy play at times, but this team is a grinder.
