Here are my Mountain West football power rankings heading into this week’s games.
1. Boise State (3-1 overall, 1-0 MW): This may be the best team coach Bryan Harsin has had with the Broncos, and they showed it last week at Wyoming. However, senior quarterback Brett Rypien (no interceptions this season) will be tested at home Saturday against a stingy San Diego State defense.
2. Fresno State (3-1, 0-0): The Bulldogs are closing the gap with Boise State. Senior quarterback Marcus McMaryion is on a roll, and the defense is playing up to expectations.
3. San Diego State (3-1, 0-0): There are some teams on the Aztecs’ heels, but despite being down their starting quarterback and running back due to injuries they hold on to the No. 3 spot.
