The Falcons have won 4 out of their last 5 conference games with the lone loss coming to top-ranked Nevada. Their bench has played a key role during their run as they’ve outscored the opposing team in their wins during that span. The Falcons found themselves trailing by double-digits at halftime in their last two games, but their bench players have provided a second half spark to propel them to victory both times.
The Rams' strength and conditioning coach Ryan Davis was reported to be departing last week, but he officially announced he'll be taking the same job at Maryland yesterday. Davis was part of Mike Bobo's original staff when he arrived at Colorado State.
The biggest mover is San Diego State as they jump from 7 to 4 after beating UNLV handily last week. The top 3 spots remain unchanged despite Fresno State dropping a game to middling Colorado State.
Shannon Moore will become the Cowboy’s new tight end/full backs coach. Moore was an assistant coach at East Carolina for the past 3 years where he served in multiple coordinator positions. Prior to East Carolina, he also coached at Florida International and South Dakota State.
