Our latest episode of the Mountain West Connection podcast is back and we break down the first week of the Mountain West football season. We discuss how Nevada is looking like the best team in the league right now, and how Boise State as well as Wyoming desperately need a running game.

Colorado State surprised a lot of us, even though they defeated a bad Colorado team, with their defense and rushing attack between Chris Nwoke and freshman Donnell Alexander. Nwoke left Saturday's game early with a lower extremity injury which is how Alexander got the carries late in the game.

New Mexico scored 66 points!

We also talk about how San Diego State coaching may have cost them the game, or at least a chance to possibly defeat Washington by making the poor decision to go for it on fourth down instead of kicking a field goal.
