Let’s talk about the games this weekend.

NCAA Football: Utah State at Wyoming Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

The Mountain West Conference had football games this week. Some teams won, others lost. Let’s see what people are saying about the games.

Cowboys have offensive explosion, keep Border War Boot.

We’ve pointed out the Cowboy’s lack of offense as much as anyone on this site (and for good reason), but Wyoming finally got out of their season long scoring funk this weekend. To the tune of 34 points, including 31 in the second half, they looked great in all areas in a win over Colorado State. Speak of the Rams...

For what it’s worth, I think Bobo gets a pass for being a “first time offender” in the bad season department. However, they better figure things out quickly.

The Aggies keep rolling.

There isn’t much to nitpick in the latest Utah State win. When pressed, Coach Wells said he wished the field goals would have been touchdowns. That’s the kind of run the Aggies are on currently.

The Spartans FINALLY get a win.

It had to happen sooner or later, but many doubted it would this year. After many close games, letting a few slip away and others not even close, San Jose State finally broke through and got in the win column. They beat UNLV, who has been in a nosedive lately. QB Josh Love had 4 TD and RB Tyler Nevins had a solid game to pace the scoring.

Two MWC teams break into the AP top 25

Seven new teams debuted in the poll, after so many top 25 teams lost this weekend. Utah State comes in at #20 and Fresno State also burst through at #23. It’s been a long battle for two teams having great seasons, but now both are recognized.

On the horizon:
