Week 8 Mountain West football standings: This week will help clear things up

Take a look at the latest Mountain West standings leading up to Week 8.

As has been the case all year, the Mountain West has been a complete mess with no real dominant team. It is looking closer that Boise State, Colorado State and Utah State are the top tier of the league. They all happen to be in the Mountain Division.

Both divisions are up in the year, in the aforementioned Mountain Division, Utah State is undefeated with Boise State, Colorado State and Wyoming all holding one loss. However, Boise State and Utah State are in the drivers seat since the Aggies are undefeated and the Broncos have just one loss, these two teams play in the season finale.

Before that season finale can get here, there is this week's game between Colorado State and Utah State and that can either create clarity or just mess up the league even more. A Utah State win makes things easier to digest, but if Colorado State wins then there is a good chance that tiebreakers will be used to determine what team will represent the Mountain Division in the conference title game.

In the West, things are interesting, for starters Hawaii is in first place as they are the only team to not lose a conference game. Fresno State loss to UNLV while San Diego State has lost to Fresno State, and then there is San Jose State lurking with a 1-1 record. The Spartans can insert them into the West Division race if they can get past Wyoming this weekend.

Just maybe next week there will be a lot more clarity as to who will represent each division in the title game.

Hawaii 1-0 2-4
Fresno State 2-1 3-4
San Diego State 2-1 3-3
San Jose State 1-1 2-3
UNLV 1-2 2-5
Nevada 1-2 3-3
Utah State 1-0 4-2
Boise State 2-1 4-2
Colorado State 1-1 5-1
Wyoming 1-1 3-3
Air Force 1-2 4-2
New Mexico 0-2 2-4
