NCAA Football: Hawaii Bowl-Brigham Young vs Hawaii Marco Garcia-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Monday and we are back. Hope everyone had a good weekend and hope you are ready for more Mountain West coverage from us this week.

Hawaii, other Week 0 teams are the guinea pigs.

The Athletic highlights a number of important things here. Testing will and continue to be the biggest piece of the puzzle for teams returning to play games. Conference play will be easier to have uniform protocols, especially for the schools traveling. Testing is expensive, especially for schools low on cash. This is all before even discussing fans in stadiums during games.

Lobo athletes may face travel difficulties.

Student athletes are already facing an uphill battle to return to sports this fall but New Mexico is one of the schools that have extra obstacles. The Lobos have 64 international students who play sports at the school and 45 of them have returned home since the school closed its campus in March. Travel restrictions are complicated at the moment.

The NBA Draft has a new date.

Ram Award Winners.

Falcons add to their schedule.
