Well it was another interesting week here in the Mountain West.  The games were a lot closer then expected but the favorites still won.  We've decided to start adding music to our Mountain West Monday articles now.  We are done with week 10 now, so what do we do?  Just keep on truckin....

Air Force:  An awful first half by the Falcons was not enough to lose the Commander In Chief Trophy.  A strong performance in the third quarter and nice meltdown by Army made sure that Air Force got it's fifth win and second CIC trophy in a row.

Boise State:  Holy crap, Boise State didn't cover the spread over UNLV which was missing several key players including it's leading rusher.  A 20 point fourth quarter is what saved this game from looking too close.  Still 48 points and just 416 yards is not nearly the offensive output that was expected.  Bob Kustra now has permission to move Boise to the Big East which set up a domino effect of killing the WAC.

New Mexico:  The Lobos scored!  The Lobos scored!  They still lost to San Diego State 35-7.  It is all about small victories for this team at this point.   There upcoming game with UNLV doesn't even seem to be a very close match up now.

San Diego State:  The Aztecs sure did a poor job of padding their stats against New Mexico.  Ryan Lindley didn't throw a single touchdown pass and Ronnie Hillman ran for just 141 yards.  At least Abel Perez made all five of his extra points to seal the victory this week.

TCU:  The Horned Frogs escaped from Laramie with a victory and now they can prepare for their last big game which is with Boise State.  They will need to start holding on to the football if they want to even try and keep this game close.

UNLV:  Hauck got a fairly decent performance out his team despite have several key players miss the game due to suspension.

Wyoming:  The Cowboys came up short in the "biggest home in a decade" and most of the fans stayed home due to the threats of a major snow storm.  Now they will head to Colorado Springs and try and take out the Zoomies.

Fresno State - Fresno is now officially the worst team nicknamed the Bulldogs in the WAC.  Is Pat Hill done?

Hawaii - The Warriors actually lost at home to Utah State.  A stunning fourth quarter collapse had them lose 35-31.
