Another weekend of college football is in the books! The Mountain West played some fun games this past weekend. No matter what the outcomes were, coverage is still coming your way today in the form of game links from the weekend and original content later today and all of this week.
Boise State has struggled all season but came out strong and shocked BYU. Going up against the #10 team in the country, down 7 starters and despite losing an 8th to a targeting call, the Broncos remained poised and let most of the game thanks to a big running attack and forcing four turnovers.
Nevada started out sluggish against New Mexico State, trailing after the first quarter. But like they’ve done most of the season, they hit their stride and never looked back. Carson Strong was phenomenal, throwing for 377 yards and six touchdowns (going to five different players) and the Aggies had no answer for the Nevada offense.
It was a battle of run-heavy, defensive-minded teams and only one could prevail. In this year’s match, it went to Air Force. It was a neck and neck battle, tied at halftime. However, AFA was more consistent, scoring in every quarter, while Wyoming only found the endzone in the second quarter. The game lived up to its billing.
Colorado State led this one from the get-go behind a strong rushing attack, a dominant defense, and lots of field goals. It’s not a traditional recipe for success in college football but it’s one that has made the Rams competitive. They look it to the defending MWC champs, who continue to struggle without QB Nick Starkel.
