Well thanks to TCU being able to come back against a bad Stanford team no real surprises from last week in the Mountain West Conference. BYU is still in the drivers seat to win the conference, and New Mexico looks to be the other contender. Wyoming could do a lot to prove whether or not they are for real this year with a win over Air Force.
Last Week 4-1
Utah(4-3, 1-2) at TCU(4-3, 1-2) Thursday 6PM (MT) Versus
This game has fallen far from the preseason billing of the first of a trifecta of games that will decide the Mountain West Conference. It has changed into the contest of teams trying to remain relevant. Yet, on Paper this is the best game of the week in the Mountain West. This is a season changing game for both teams, because there is a huge difference between 2-2 and 1-4. The Utes have proven that they can win on the road this season with a win at Louisville. Plus TCU's offense has struggled at times and their defense is no where near what they were touted as to start the season. The Utes will pull away in the second half for a double digit victory.

Wyoming is coming off a hard home loss to the Lobos, and things remain difficult for the Pokes going to Colorado Springs to face the Falcons. This is a huge statement game for the Pokes to show that last week was a fluke and they are a force to contend with in the Mountain West. Yet, the Falcons are a force in the Mountain West and at home they will roll over the Pokes. Both sides will put up points, but expect the Falcons option to blow by the Pokes defense.

Eastern Washington(4-2, 2-2) at BYU(4-2, 3-0) Saturday 3:30PM (MT) The Mtn.
Gimme game. Eastern Washington is out matched in every phase of this game. This will be over by the end of the first quarter. Hall could have more then 400 yards by half time. Gaskins the back up quarterback might open some eyes in the second half.

New Mexico(4-2, 1-1) at San Diego St.(2-4, 1-1) Saturday 6:30 PM (MT) CSTV
The Lobos are looking good. They have a solid running game and quality receivers to throw it to down the field. Rocky Long's defense is aggressive as always and reeking havoc on offenses. This is the second consecutive road game for the Lobos, but they are up to the task. The Aztecs might keep it close but the Lobos defense will be the deciding factor.
New Mexico 24 San Diego St. 7
Colorado St.(0-6, 0-3) at UNLV(2-5, 1-2) Saturday 7PM (MT)
This will not be the week the Rams break the streak. UNLV's running game is to good for CSU to slow it down. The opportunistic Rebel's defense should have a field day playing against the Rams. CSU is still better then 0-6, but the problem they face is UNLV is better then 2-5. Rebels win going away.
