Happy Tuesday, today’s edition features news surrounding two of the biggest conference games of the year in MW football. We also have our players of the week and a look at the newest installment of the AP basketball poll.
In what will be the biggest game of the season so far for both the Aggies and Broncos there are a lot of questions as to who will actually be playing QB. Jordan Love exited last week’s game with an undisclosed injury leaving the Aggies unsure of who will be under center. Meanwhile, both Hank Bachmeier and Chase Cord’s status for the upcoming game are also in question. It is very possible we see Henry Colombi vs Jaylon Henderson with a spot in the MW title game on the line.
The West division crown all comes down to a winner take all game on the island. The Aztecs are looking to clinch a spot in their third conference title game while Hawaii will be looking for their first. Take a look at some of the storylines heading into the huge game.
This week’s poll has Utah State jumping up 2 spots to number 15, The Aggies remain undefeated after beating NC A&T and the University of Texas at San Antonio. San Diego State received the same amount of votes as last week (2) despite their rout of GCU.
