Luckily for Wyoming, San Diego State and UNLV they were on byes this week and did not suffer any upsets.
Air Force Falcons — The first quarter the Falcons looked real good in the first and look to be regaining their swagger. Their rushing game was not great and they got a little help from the officials on that unsportsmanlike conduct call in overtime which pushed the Navy extra point back that the Falcons blocked.
Boise St. Broncos — The offense was not there and Kellen Moore had one of his worst wins in his Boise career, however the Broncos were up 30-0 before putting in the backups in the fourth quarter. Running Doug Martin looked good with 126 yards, and it is good to see Boise win easily with a poor offensive performance.
Colorado St. Rams — Losing to San Jose State is almost as bad as losing to an FCS school. Again, the running game is a joke. San Jose State was 109th in the country going into this game and the Rams did nothing. Quarterback Pete Thomas had a career day and nearly kept the Rams alive, but this one hurts since it was an expected win to go toward bowl eligibility.
New Mexico Lobos — Well the George Barlow era do not get off to a good start with a loss to rival New Mexico State. B.R. Holbrook got the start and played the entire game, so that is good he has yet to flip-flop on a starter and did ok. The defense is an issue as they gave up 42 points to a bad team and it does not look good for Barlow who was the defensive coordinator.
TCU Horned Frogs — A loss to your rival is never fun, but TCU's defense and secondary was outmatched yet again. The offense did not have enough time to make a comeback. Something needs to be done about the secondary.
