Week 10 Mountain West Conference Power Rankings

Utah remains on top of the Power Rankings during their bye...

This week might be the calm before the storm. Utah and TCU both have games that might trip them up, but they should be able to take care of business with both teams. Next week they face off in the game that will decide how the conference title will shape up. Here are the rankings for week 10:

1)Utah - It seems that the best thing the Utes could do last week was to have a bye. Utah should be refocused and ready for the stretch run. Utah needs no to look to far ahead to the TCU game next week, because the Lobos could give the Utes some problems.

2)TCU - Horned Frogs keep on winning. UNLV might be a trap game for TCU this week if they are looking ahead to the conference show down with Utah.

3)BYU - A close win at home might be what the Cougars needed. To prove to themselves that they can win games when their backs are up against the wall. BYU still has a lot of holes in the secondary that need to improve to have a chance to get back a share of the conference title.

4)Air Force - The Falcons are the biggest surprise this season in the Mountain West. The Falcons have found ways to win close games. Falcons still have a tough schedule to finish the season.

5)Colorado State - The Rams continue to be another surprise team in the conference this season. The Rams will have two chances to make some noise in the conference facing BYU this week and Air Force the following week.

6)New Mexico - An up and down year for the Lobos continues. The Lobos will need some luck to become bowl eligible, but they have the talent to get the wins.

7)UNLV - The Rebels are MUCH better than their record indicates. UNLV needs to find a way to win close conference games, and to get a stop on defense.

8)San Diego State - Showed some signs of life in loss to Colorado State earns the Aztecs the second to last spot in the polls.

9)Wyoming - Like everything else in Wyoming, just not that good.

I am a big fan of the big podcast, but it seems that everything you have been writing about lately has been about mountain west football. I would like to see stuff about other sports. World Series? NBA preview? I'll even take golf...(a short article). Anyhow, its just a request. Keep up the great work!
