Week 8 Mountain West football standings: Mountain Division just got tighter with Utah State loss

The division race in the Mountain is heating up.

Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

Yes, technically the New Mexico Lobos can win the division as their final four games are intra-division games but they include Boise State, Utah State, Colorado State and Air Force. In realistic Mountain Division news, Utah State is still in the drivers seat to win the division even after their loss to San Diego State as they own the tiebreaker over Boise State.

Utah State needs to win out to represent the Mountain Division in the title game but any slip up will allow Boise State or Air Force to take that spot. Boise State bounced back with a win over Wyoming to stay in the race. Air Force is in the same position as New Mexico by winning out and they win the division.

The West Division is much more simple: San Diego State has a two-game lead in the loss column, and they already defeated San Jose State and would need to lose at least two conference games to be knocked out of the West lead.
