Here are my weekly Mountain West football power rankings entering this week’s games.
1. No. 16 Fresno State (8-1, 5-0): Winners of eight straight and most of the Bulldogs’ games in conference play have been like scrimmages. But a test awaits this week at Boise State Friday.
2. No. 14 Utah State (8-1, 5-0): The Aggies are ranked higher than the Bulldogs and are closing the gap with Fresno State in these rankings. A Fresno State-Utah State MW championship game could be a lot of fun.
3. Boise State (7-2 overall, 4-1 MW): A close home win over BYU last week. The Broncos are good, but there haven’t been enough times where they’ve shown to be elite like the two teams above them.
