The weekly honors are upon us as we take a final look at football play over the weekend. We also have content from two teams who ended up on the short end of the score and have a bye week to get ready for the final conference season push. We also take a sneak peek at some basketball news in this edition. Enjoy!!
The newest MWFB Players of the Week
In this age of instant gratification and little margin for error or sticking to a process, the head coach seat is hot in Aztec Land. It will be an interesting week for the Aztecs as they failed to score any points against a winless Nevada Wolf Pack team that had been giving up close to 40 points per game on defense.
The Aggies have forced 16 turnovers so far this year and have greatly improved on their turnover differential from a year ago. However, last year was very bad and the improvement does not take into account the turnovers they are making. Those factored greatly in their Saturday loss to San Jose State.
You have to know that San Diego State would be mentioned if you know anything about Mountain West Men’s basketball, but which two other MW teams are cited by Jon Rothstein?
The Aztecs played without starting guard Darrion Trammell and Head Coach Brian Dutcher got a chance to see a number of new players get some action. Here’s the good stuff from the exhibition.
A Mountain West Women’s basketball player gets mentioned in this preseason list.
