New, 2 comments

New Mexico and Colorado State are no firmly in control of their own fate in the Mountain West.

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time in a while there were no major upsets in Mountain West play this past Saturday. The only game that could possibly even be considered an upset was UNLV defeating San Diego State at home. Colorado State earned an extremely difficult road win by upending Air Force, and then New Mexico held off Boise State at home.

The wins by New Mexico and Colorado State have kept them with just two losses in league play; the two are three games ahead of both UNLV, San Diego State and the surprise that is Air Force.

The regular season league title is likely coming down to the winner between Colorado State and New Mexico. The two schools matchup on Saturday in a must see game. Colorado State does have to play a game before the weekend as they go on the road to face a UNLV team who is very dangerous at home.
