MW Round-Up (Week 7)

Post by YoungBloodAggie » October 18th, 2015, 5:52 pm

Some quick recaps:

6. UNLV 28 -- 31 Fresno State. The Bulldogs scored the last 17 points on the game to win for just the second time this year. Fresno RB Marteze Waller had two rushing touchdowns and 111 yards on the ground to help the Doggies get a much needed victory. Freshman QB Kilton Anderson also added two rushing scores for Fresno. Both teams are now sitting at 2-5 with difficult games ahead that will more than likely eliminate them from bowl contention.

5. Hawaii 27 -- 28 New Mexico. The Lobos came alive in the second half, overcoming a 10-point deficit and scoring the winning touchdown with 55 seconds left to keep their slim bowl chances alive. Interestingly, Hawaii outgained UNM on the ground, but could only muster 3 points after halftime. Hawaii falls to 2-5 on the season as New Mexico improves to 4-3 and tied for second place in the Mountain Division with Boise State and Air Force. Hawaii is currently the only team in the conference to have not beaten a fellow conference member.

4. Nevada 21 -- 28 Wyoming. Pokes win, pokes win! Despite their best efforts to lose this one at the end, Wyoming came away with a surprise victory over the Wolf Pack that shakes up the West Division race and prevents Wyoming from entering its toughest portion of Mountain West games winless. QB Cameron Coffman led the way for the Cowboys with 3 touchdowns. Nevada falls to 3-4 overall and, more importantly, now has two losses in conference. The Wolf Pack no longer control their own destiny in conference play.

3. Air Force 23 -- 38 Colorado State. The Rams had this one put away by the end of the third quarter as they threw all over the AFA defense. For men that are typically quite good at defending their own air space, Air Force struggled against sophomore QB Nick Stevens. The win puts life back into a CSU program that has been all but eliminated from MW conference competition and now looks to become bowl eligible for the third straight year. Air Force drops to 3-3, with their next three games being their most winnable.

2. San Diego State 30 -- 7 San Jose State. Donnel Pumphrey and the Aztecs blasted the Spartans in San Jose to pull clear of the competition in the West Division. San Jose State could muster only one score and 148 total yards of offense at home. The Aztecs are heating up at the right time, as they look to put a poor non-conference performance behind them and establish themselves as a leader in the MWC. San Jose State is tied with Nevada and UNLV in the loss column for second place in the West Division, and will need serious help from their conference mates if they have any chance of getting into the MW Championship Game.

1. Boise State 26 -- 52 Utah State. In case you fellas (and ladies?) hadn't heard, the good guys whooped on the Broncos on the back of an incredible defensive performance that included 8 turnovers and a 35-point halftime lead. Kent Myers was sensational both running and throwing the football. Could he possibly be the MW Offensive Player of the Year if these results continue? Name me a competitor with better numbers after three weeks of work. Anyway, the Broncos will be cheering on SDSU this week as the Aggies head off to San Diego to do battle with the Aztecs. A win will put USU one huge step closer to hosting the MWCCG.
