Mountain West Conference power rankings

No team has really been able to seperate themselves from the rest of the pack. That means the Mountain West is a really good conference, or a really bad one.

Team of the week: New Mexico. It's tough going up to Laramie and winning. It's even more tough when the Cowboys are actually good. Well the Lobos did just that, defeating a good Wyoming team and now they look to keep it up against San Diego State.

Dud of the week: San Diego State & CSU. You both suck. That's all I've got to say about that.

Week Seven Rankings
Rank Team Comments
1 BYU didn't look good at all in their win over UNLV. But they did something Utah couldn't do, get out of Vegas with a win. Since Wyoming lost and the Cougars are the lone undefeated Mountain West team, they're #1 for now.
2 The Lobos bounce back from a tough loss to BYU a few weeks ago and get an impressive road win over Wyoming. They should continue winning this Saturday at San Diego State. But knowing Rocky Long, they'll drop the game.
3 Nice blowout win over a rank (not ranked) CSU team. Only two wins away from a bowl game and they should get even closer this Saturday with a home game against Wyoming.
4 Utah played well Saturday, but now must go on the road and defeat TCU. They do and expect them to shoot up in the rankings. A loss, though, and they're going to slide right back down.
5 Nice win over Stanford, but they'll need a victory over Utah to turn their season around. If they lose, it could be difficult winning 6-games.
6 Tough loss for Wyoming and it doesn't get easier with a road trip to Air Force. I do hate dropping them this far, but it's impossible to rank them higher than teams that actually won last week.
7 They played BYU tough, but couldn't get it done. This week provides Mountain West fans with the worst conference game to date. UNLV hosts the winless Rams in the battle for horrid supremacy.
8 The Aztecs-Utah score was far worse than it looked. But they don't have time to mope, with New Mexico coming to town. A win Saturday probably wouldn't turn their season around, but it could spoil the Lobos season and, for a team like San Diego State, it's always nice playing spoiler.
