Day one in the books; mixed results for Mountain West. Now onto day 2

I can't say it was a great day for the Mountain West. Though New Mexico & BYU advanced - it wasn't without struggle. The Cougars blew a decent second half lead and had to fight off the Florida Gators in double overtime, while the Lobos barely got by 14th-seeded Montana. 

UNLV and San Diego State weren't as lucky. The Aztecs fell to Tennessee and the Rebels were upset by Northern Iowa.

Unless both BYU and New Mexico get their act together quickly, neither will make it to the Sweet Sixteen. 

Though the Lobos have an easier path, as they'll face Washington. The Cougars, however, must take on a very good Kansas State team. 

As for today, most eyes will probably be on the Utah State, Texas A&M game. Many pundits consider this a potential upset, as the Aggies are a fifth seed. We'll see. 

Hopefully the excitement lives up to what we saw today.
