Week 10 Predictions for the Mountain West Conference

Utah, BYU, and New Mexico are the elite of the Mountain West Conference now. Utah and New Mexico both had statement wins last weekend. Utah put the hammer down on Colorado St. dominating both sides of the football. New Mexico came out on top in the shoot out against Air Force. The table is still set for both to have a shot at the conference title. Yet, the schedule is favorable for BYU to win out.(minus the Utah game, because the rivalry game you just don't know what will happen)

Last Week 3-0
Overall 11-2
This week:

Colorado St.(1-7, 1-4) at BYU(5-2, 3-0) 12pm MT The Mtn.
The Rams take all the momentum from their first win of the season and lay an egg against the Utes. Glaring hole in both stopping the run and establishing the running game. Playing into the strength of BYU. Especially with the game being played at LaVell Edwards stadium(the best home field advantage in the league) this one should be over quick.
BYU 42 - CSU 3
Army(3-5) at Air Force(6-3, 5-2) 1:30pm MT CSTV
With the loss to Navy the Cadets don't have a chance to get the commander and chief trophy back this year.(Even if they beat Army and Army beats Navy; Navy holds the tiebreaker being the team that won the trophy last year.) This is usually the time of year that Air Force runs out of legs, so it will be interesting to see if the new training program by first year head coach Troy Calhoun pays of for the Falcons. The Cadets should handle Army easily at home.
Air Force 45 - Army 14
New Mexico(6-2, 3-1) at TCU(4-4, 1-3) 3:30pm MT The Mtn.
New Mexico BEWARE! This is type of game that TCU will come out and look like the team that everyone thought they should be at the beginning of the season. Are the Horn frogs better then their 4-4 record? No. Do they have the talent to beat the Lobos? Yes. Will They?....No. TCU offense won't be able to score enough points to stay in the game.
New Mexico 31 - TCU 17
Wyoming(5-3, 2-2) at San Diego St.(2-5, 1-2) 7:00 pm MT The Mtn.
After a week off due to the fires the Aztecs will continue their season against the Pokes. Wyoming gets a win against UNLV ending a two game losing streak. They have all the tools to handle the Aztecs this Saturday; HOWEVER, San Diego St will rise to the challenge and win a inspired close victory.
San Diego St. 24- Wyoming 21
