Let’s take a bullet-point recap look at the week around the Mountain West Conference, highlighting the biggest news.

Fall Camp updates:

  • A New Mexico beat writer is expecting Sherion Jones to win the Lobo QB battle.
  • The Lobos are also trying to find the right balance between the triple option and a more traditional offense before games start up.
  • Sounds like Hawaii is getting closer to naming a starting QB, but a few are still in the mix. It wouldn’t be surprising to see McDonald start the first few games before giving way to Moussa.
  • Lots of buzz going around CSU’s offense. Nikko Hall could be quite the player this year as a true freshmen paired with grad-transfer QB KJ Carta-Samuels
  • Fresno State is not only battling themselves during fall camp, but is also going up against the smoky air.

Scheduling:

  • UNLV will play a home and home series against BYU in 2023/2024
  • Boise State will play a 2 for 1 series against Oregon. 2024 and 2026 will take place at Oregon, while 2025 will be in Boise.

Coaching Carousel
