San Diego State somehow has quietly achieved a 7-0 record in conference play and is playing it is first Mountain West title game, and naturally they remain at the top of the latest rankings with another blow out win. The surprise this week -- at least a mild one -- was that Air Force defeated Boise State to clinch the Mountain Division and will play the Aztecs, still TBD on location.
Boise State's loss drops them further in the rankings and it is their third loss in four games against teams that run a a triple-option offense, and nearly four as New Mexico was very close to upsetting the Broncos last year. That is why San Jose State head coach Ron Caragher joked (at least we think it was) about installing that offense for this week's game against the Broncos.
