Game of the Week - Minnesota at Fresno State

First off, props to San Diego State (UCLA) and Hawaii (Oregon State) for beating PAC12 teams and getting the Mountain West a couple more wins over the Power 5 this season. It was tempting to pick one of those two games. That said, Minnesota/Fresno State was probably the most exciting and entertaining game of Week 2 in the conference. It took 2 overtimes and was back-and-forth throughout. Also, it dropped Fresno State, the defending MWC champions, to 0-2 to start the season. While Fresno State still looks like a team that will challenge to win the conference, the Bulldogs are probably already out of the NY6 bowl picture.

Let us know which game you thought was the Game of the Week in Week Two.
