Here are the MWC results from Week Eight:
Game 1 - UNLV 27, Fresno State 56
Game 2 - New Mexico 10, Wyoming 23
Game 3 - San Diego State 27, San Jose State 17
Game 4 - Boise State 25, BYU 28
Game 5 - Nevada 10, Utah State 36
Game 6 - Air Force 56, Hawaii 26
Game of the Week - Boise State at BYU
This has to be the game of week due to the implications of the Broncos losing. First, Boise State will not be in the playoff. It was an extreme long-shot with a perfect season, but it will not happen for a 1-loss Group of 5 team. Second, the NY6 front-runner among the Group of 5 going into this past weekend is now needing some teams to lose to get back into the Cotton Bowl picture. SMU becomes the new Group of 5 leader for the NY6, but the Mustangs could stumble with games @Houston and @Memphis in the next couple of weeks. If Boise State does not make it back into the NY6 picture and San Diego State does not get there at 12-1 (potentially), the domino effect for bowl games among Mountain West teams will take a big hit.
Let us know which game you thought was the Game of the Week in Week Eight.
