Mountain West football standings: An early look at the conference pecking order

Conference play is slowly approaching upon everyone and with a few games in it is time to look at the standings.

So far, every team in the Mountain West has played a conference game, except for Utah State and Hawaii, but with another slate of games league games now is a good time to take a look at the conference standings.

Prior to Boise State's loss to Air Force in Week 5, it seemed that the Broncos had a clear path to the Mountain Division, and now that is clearly not the case. The Mountain Division is now wide open with that Broncos loss. Wyoming is still undefeated but there does not look to be a scenario where the Cowboys go undefeated, and Colorado State gets back in the race after Boise State losing.

In the West, there is a three-way tie at the top with Nevada, San Diego State and Fresno State all sitting at 1-0, but the Aztecs and Bulldogs square off Friday night and Nevada hosts Boise State.

After this weekend, there will be a reasonably big shake up once the results are in after San Diego State vs. Fresno State and Boise State vs. Nevada games. However, things will probably not be any clearer than they are now, but the further we get into the season we know more about all of these teams.
