Here are my Mountain West football power rankings heading into this week’s games.
- Boise State (7-2 overall, 5-0 MW): The Broncos keep rolling and have the conference’s longest current winning streak at five. There are not a lot of weaknesses in how this team is playing right now.
2. San Diego State (8-2, 4-2): Ran for a school-record 554 yards last week at San Jose State. The Aztecs look to be back more to the form where it started the season 6-0 and nationally ranked. The team has a bye week, then finishes with two home games. Hard to think this team loses again in the regular season.
3. Wyoming (6-3, 4-1): A memorable win in the snow over Border War rival Colorado State last week. The Cowboys play great defense and usually get just enough offense to win games. The toughness and competitiveness of this team is impressive.
