What We Learned From Week Two Of Mountain West Football

Air Force - Perhaps the hype is not what is should have been for Air Force -- at least on my end. The Falcons defense is a weak spot and they could not stop Casey Pachall who went 20-for-25 on the day.

Boise State - Bye week so no on the field action, but they move up in the AP poll one spot and there is no new news on the three players from Noway still have eligibility issues regarding WR Geraldo Boldewijn, S Cedric Febis and DT Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe.

Colorado State - The rushing game improved immensely from the prior week, but it was against Northern Colorado. However, improvement is the key. The Rams losing Mychal Sisson for possibly the year is a huge blow to their defense.

New Mexico - Well... they played a ranked Arkansas team and never had a chance in this game. New Mexico had no turnovers so that is a positive.

San Diego State - The Aztecs squeaked by in this game. They played down to their competition and will have an issue against Air Force since the Falcons run the same offense that Army does. He also know Ronnie Hillman is a stud.

TCU - TCU is a team that is in between the Baylor and Air Force game. The defense grew up real quick and

UNLV - So much for saying the Rebels could compete with Washington State who was without quarterback Jeff Tuel. The UNLV secondary was terrible and so was the offense. The UNLV offense had 158 total yards, that is all.

Wyoming - The Cowboys improved drastically from week one to week two, specifically in their defense. The running game is their strength and it will help since Wyoming is playing a true freshman at the quarterback spot in Brett Smith. It was against Texas State, but 382 yards on the ground is impressive especially when factoring in 236 passing yards.
