2013 Mountain West title game: Fresno State clinches berth

Fresno State's win over New Mexico clinched the West Division, and a spot in the inaugural Mountain West title game.

With Fresno State's blowout win over New Mexico on Saturday afternoon, the Bulldogs earned the right to host the inaugural Mountain West title game. The Bulldogs opponent is still up in the air but it is narrowed down to two teams in either Utah State or Boise State.

Coming into Week 13 of Mountain West play, Utah State and Boise State each had one loss and the Aggies needed help since their loss was to the Broncos. San Diego State and Boise State played a great game, and it was the Aztecs who defeated the Broncos in overtime on Saturday night to give Utah State a helping hand.

Utah State can play in the Mountain West title game against Fresno State if they beat Wyoming, who they host next weekend. Boise State can backdoor their way in a rematch against Fresno State if they defeat New Mexico, which they should, but they also need Wyoming to defeat Utah State.
