Welcome to another edition of Mountaintop View, hope everyone had a great holiday. As always we have a new set of links!
Basketball season is underway! San Diego State comes in just outside of the top 25 in what would be 27 in the week 2 AP poll with 86 votes. The Aztecs are the only MW team receiving votes and will look to jump into the top 25 next week.
Another week, another poll with a couple MW teams on the outside looking in. Boise State and San Jose State each received 8 votes.
After suffering and injury last week against UNLV, Wyoming RB, Xazavian Valladay’s, status is uncertain going forward. Valladay suffered a leg injury after getting off to a tremendous start accumulating 94 yards on his first 6 carries before the injury.
