What We Learned From Week 8 Of Mountain West Football

Three teams were on a bye this week: UNLV, Wyoming and San Diego State.

Air Force Falcons - The Falcons nearly pulled the upset against Boise State. The Falcons dominated in the time of possession, were equal in turnovers and only gained 15 less yards than Boise State. The offense started slow in the first half, but this was probably the most complete game Air Force played all year.

Boise St. Broncos - The run-option attack caused problems as did at times the Air Force defense. Kellen Moore had a slightly below average game with 281 yards, but he made up for it with three touchdowns, and Doug Martin helped with 125 yards. Boise is well rounded with very few weaknesses.

Colorado St. Rams - A bowl game is extremely unlikely know that the Rams loss to UTEP. This game was lost because of a slow start, lack of a rush defense (allowed 340 rushing yards) and poor quarterback play. For once it can not be said the Colorado State rushing attack let them down. Chris Nwoke rushed for 93 yards and Raymond Carter had 42 yards on only nine carries.

New Mexico Lobos - What can be said they lost 69-0 and gained 85 total yards of offense.

TCU Horned Frogs - 69-0 is the biggest margin of victory ever for TCU. TCU played their most complete game of the year and it helps that they played New Mexico.
