Here are my Mountain West football power rankings heading into this week’s games.
1. Boise State (8-2 overall, 6-0 MW): The Broncos were down big and gave up 35 first-half points at Colorado State, but found a way to rally for an overtime victory in one of the more entertaining games in the country this year. The winning streak is now six, and Boise State is pretty much a lock to be the Mountain Division champs.
2. San Diego State (8-2, 4-2): No game for the Aztecs last week, and its finishes up the regular-season with two home games, starting Saturday against two-win Nevada. One has to wonder what could have been had it not been for back-to-back home losses to Boise State and Fresno State last month.
3. Wyoming (7-3, 5-1): It was a little difficult putting the Cowboys this high after junior quarterback Josh Allen left last week’s Air Force game with some sort of right arm injury. Not knowing Allen’s status moving forward makes the Cowboys a different team, but the defense continues to shine — now with 27 turnovers forced.
