My Mountain West football power rankings heading into this week’s games.
- No. 25 Boise State (9-2 overall, 7-0 MW): The Broncos are Mountain Division champs after they recorded their seventh straight victory — a home win over Air Force. Across the board, Boise State is clicking on all cylinders. It will get to know Fresno State well as it plays there this week in the regular-season finale, and again the following week in the MW Championship Game.
2. Fresno State (8-3, 6-1): Clinched the West Division title with a gritty 13-7 road win at Wyoming last week. The Bulldogs are very good defensively, and underrated on offense. They also are built and coached to be good for quite some time.
3. San Diego State (9-2, 5-2): Senior running back Rashaad Penny is a beat — as a runner and returning punts and kicks. The Aztecs are rolling again after a mid-season slump. Penny should be getting some Heisman Trophy consideration.
