NCAA Football: Mountain West Championship-Fresno State at Boise State Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

Hello everyone. Happy Wednesday to all of you fans out there. Some kids are starting classes today in some Mountain West schools, and some of you might just be heading to work. Football season is super close to start. We got a lot of information for you to know, or catch up. Enjoy!

From the Swamp to the Nevada desert

The Rebels made a huge spark on defense when former Florida Gator Rayshad Jackson to the field in practice. Jackson was a grad transfer, and missed two weeks of training camp because he had to wait for the UNLV administration to check on him academically. He got the “green light” on Saturday by the UNLV administration, Jackson participated on the helmets-only practice in his first ever Rebel practice. Coach Tony Sanchez was impressed how smart and fast the former Florida Gator was in a hour long short practice.

Two Ram running backs competing at high level

The Colorado State Rams might have two running backs that can prove the Mountain West that they can have a deadly offense this season. The fist running back, Marvin Kinsey Jr., is coming off from an injury from last season. He made a promise to himself, the Ram fanbase, and in social media stating that his senior year will be at a high level like his freshmen year but 10 times better. For Marcus McElroy, a junior backup running back, he had 52 carries and 219 yards for a struggling Ram offense in the running game last season. Both backs say that they are ready to go, and prove the conference that they can be in the hunt for the title game.
