Broncos roll, Strong strong, Starkel comes up big, New Mexico to Vegas and Texas, poll talk.

NCAA Football: New Mexico at San Jose State Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Monday and we are back after a weekend full of football games!

No Bachmeier no problem for the Broncos.

Boise State was without their starting QB and S, then injuries to their starting RB, NT, and DE all occurred within the game. However, they kept rolling and won pretty handily by the end of it. The Falcons offense couldn’t be stopped in the first half but were mostly neutralized in the second half.

Nevada takes back the cannon.

Carson Strong picked up right where he left off last week, continuing to throw the ball with ease in the Wolf Pack offense. Romeo Doubs has turned into legitimate weapon and the offense is going to be tough to stop going forward. UNLV looked improved from last week and they settled into a groove a bit on offense.

Starkel’s big day carries the Spartans.

San Jose State is now 2-0 after their QB’s big day against New Mexico. The big-armed quarterback, paired with a solid wide receiver unit proved to be a winning combination. Starkel threw for 467 yards and 5 touchdowns. It’s their best start in 33 years.

New Mexico team going to Vegas?

New Mexico bowl going to Texas?
