Welcome to another Monday. We compiled some MWC reading material to hopefully help you make it through the day. Catch up on some game coverage from around the conference.
What else can be said about Fresno State that hasn’t been said already? They are the most balanced team in the conference, by a wide margin right now, and showed that the Nevada game looked more like a speed bump than a road block. The up and down season continues for New Mexico.
First SJSU jumped out to a 6-0 lead. Then it was 13-13 heading in to the 4th quarter. Although many would argue SDSU is an overachieving 6-1, they certainly played down to their competition this week. Going into the game, it was assumed their rushing attack would run right over the Spartans. On the Spartans end of things, they let another winnable game get away from them.
In addition to their first conference win, it was their first win of the season when trailing at half-time. They had an offensive outpouring to the tune of 572 total yards, with QB Sanders accounting for 4 total TDs. Meanwhile, the Rebels bowl hopes continue to diminish, though their offense played well.
The Broncos needed an easy win, especially at home considering the last time they played on the blue turf. In front of an orange out crowd, they controlled this one from the get go and put the struggling Rams away. Special teams were pretty unique. The Broncos fumbled a return but recovered and scored a TD. They had a return TD negated by a penalty. Then, they returned an onside kick for a TD.
