It’s the Tuesday Edition flush with Player of the Week honors in two sports and a golfer named to a preseason Watch List! We also put a bow in the Aztec loss and the Lobos win over the weekend, who the Rams will turn to run their offense against the high-powered Colorado Buffaloes, and a peek at which MW football teams hold land in the current Empires Map. Enjoy!
Two Falcons are joined by a Lobo and a Spartan as deemed by the Mountain West. I guess getting over 200 scrimmage yards against a P5 team doesn’t go as far as it used to.
The San Diego State recipe for success over the years has not been a secret—a strong rushing attack supplemented by a stingy and opportunistic defense. Neither was there in the Aztecs 25 point loss to the UCLA Bruins.
The Lobos bounced back in a big way after their 42 point loss to Texas A&M, dominating visiting Tennessee Tech. See the post game analysis as they head into their rivalry game versus New Mexico State.
Head Coach Jay Norvell has decided to play the hot hand as he decides to go with the redshirt freshman QB who provided a spark to the offense in the Rams season opening loss against Washington State. He will have his hands full going against the nationally ranked and revived Buffaloes.
Fresno State, Air Force, and Wyoming the MW throne holders...
