Here are my Mountain West football power rankings heading into this week’s games.
- Boise State (6-2 overall, 4-0 MW): The Broncos are playing the best football of any team in the conference on offense and defense. They’ve won four in a row and have outscored those opponents 120-49.
2. Air Force (4-4, 3-2): Winners of three straight and coming off an impressive 45-28 win at Colorado State. The offense has been good all season, but if the defense can play like it did in the second half against the Rams, the Falcons will be tough to beat down the stretch.
3. Wyoming (5-3, 3-1): Some may think this is a homer pick, and perhaps it is a little high for a team that continues to struggle with consistency on offense. But after forcing a school-record seven turnovers in a 42-3 homecoming win over New Mexico, the Cowboys move up three spots from last week.
