Week 6 Mountain West football: What we learned

Time to take a look back at the Week 6 of Mountain West football.

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

A rapid recap of each game, plus links to larger recaps.

BYU 31, Utah State 14 - All what matters in this game is that quarterback Chuckie Keeton is done for the year with a torn ACL and MCL. Backup quarterback Craig Harrision did not look all that good replacing Keeton, so this season could go south in a hurry for the Aggies.

San Diego State 51, Nevada 44 (OT): San Diego State just might be back on track and the team we thought they were to be heading into the season. Aztec running back Adam Muema seems to be healthy with 134 yards, and now he has a partner in freshman running back Donnel Pumphrey who had over 100 yards. Quarterback Quinn Kaehler is legit and is the right player to lead the Aztecs. All that can be said about Nevada is that this type of production by Cody Fajarado was expected, or somewhat expected with nearly 450 total yards. The rotation of running back continues for Nevada with Kendall Brock being the latest star with 107 and three scores.

Navy 28, Air Force 10: Karson Pearson is really trying y'all. He is the third-string quarterback for Air Force and rushed for just 31 yards and 67 through the air. He is just not ready yet but this experience will help him down the road.

Fresno State 61, Idaho 14: Yes, the Bulldogs played Idaho but the defense finally stepped up to have a big game. The starting defenders were pulled late and they did not give up any points. This is big since against Hawaii last week Fresno State nearly gave up 40 points.

New Mexico 66, New Mexico State 17: Lobos rushing stats: 541 yards, 9.7 yards per carry, seven touchdowns. That is all.

San Jose State 37, Hawaii 27:  San Jose State had a rushing offense and defense, for possibly the first time all year' Tim Crawley had 93 yards and Jarrod Lawson had 89. As a team the Spartans gave just 85. As for Hawaii, they stuck with quarterback Sean Schroeder who completed 28 of 50 for 342 yards but also had three touchdowns and as many picks. At least Norm Chow stuck with one quarterback.
