It was another great week for the Mountain West. The teams looked strong in their non-conference games and Boise State and Utah State made a statement in their first conference games of the season.
The Broncos benefited from some surprise loses in front of them and they climbed four spots to number 16 in the AP poll and five sports to number 15 in the Coaches Poll.
Meanwhile, a solid win over San Diego State scored Utah State nine points in the Coaches Poll and Hawaii received one point in the Coaches Poll. Boise State was the only team in the Mountain West to receive votes in the AP Poll.
