Week 13 Power Rankings

The Holy War is upon us, and on paper this should be the best game in many years. Except that last years game might be the best game ever in the rivalry. Think about a better game that you have seen. BYU goes up 14, then Utah knuckles down and goes up 10. Only for BYU to score a pair of touchdowns and take a 27-24 lead. Ratliff leads Utah down the field and they score on a direct snap with under two minutes in the game. Then Harline gets open in the end zone with no time remaining and the game ends. After looking back their are no games that had that much excitement and that kind of finish. It might be one of the best football games ever in all of college football. This game has a lot to live up to, and it is sure to be exciting at the very least.

1) BYU - Still the best team in the Mountain West Conference. They secured at least a share of the title with a win over the Pokes. Hall injury bring a large question mark into the Holy War.
2) Utah - They might not get a championship this year even with a win over BYU, but what a turn around from the early disappointment. The Air Force and UNLV games were the low points for sure, but wins over UCLA and Louisville do make it a little better.
(Who really cares beyond this point)
3) Air Force - 9-3 great season. Plus any time you can put 600 yards of rushing on the ground you have to be proud.
4) New Mexico - Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. Two huge turnovers really cost the Lobos any shot of winning. Still very good and looking to end the season strong.
5) TCU - OVERRATED!!! Gary Paterson is still complaining about how it isn't his fault that they are mediocre. To bad any one seeing the games know that isn't the case.
6) San Diego St - Still mathematically possible that they can become bowl eligible. With TCU and BYU left on the schedule, it would take a miracle.
7) Wyoming - What a tale of two seasons for the Poke. The team that looked to challenge BYU for the league championship now has to win against arch rival (according to the Mtn. even though everyone knows it is really BYU they hate) CSU.
8) Colorado St - They hung on to beat a D-1AA team. Good job! No they battle of the two underachievers this Saturday to try and provide one of the teams with some hope looking forward to next season.
9) UNLV - Remember when they beat Utah 27-0 and everyone thought they would be the surprise team in the conference. Sumner looked like the next coming of Eddie George and the defense looked to shut people down. To bad reality caught up with them and they turned back into the losers of Las Vegas.
