San Diego State sports the top-ranked pass defense in all of college football. Pure dominance. That dominance will be put to the test in the coming weeks, with Fresno State’s Jake Haener, Nevada’s Carson Strong, and Boise State’s Hank Bachmeier on the schedule in the next month. The West Division gauntlet continues.
It’s another rivalry week in the Mountain West. Amir Johnson and JoJuan Claiborne are itching for a shot at UNLV. Read above on how they ended up at Nevada, and their intentions for Friday’s game.
It’s been a rough few weeks for Wyoming football, particularly the offense. After starting 4-0, the Cowboys have been held without a touchdown in back-to-back home games against Fresno State and New Mexico. Can the Pokes’ experienced offensive line point the team in the right direction?
Matt Araiza is a punting god

He has TWO 80-yard punts, multiple 50-yard field goals and he’s on pace to smash the single-season punting record.
