Week 13 Mountain West Football Quarterback Rankings
Games not being played makes this tricky.
Each week there are games that get canceled and quarterbacks getting benched for a variety of reasons. This league has a lot of good quarterbacks especially in the top half and that is why there is a divide among the top half and bottom half of quarterbacks and it has a direct correlation to good teams and bad teams.
The top half has been basically the same all year and it makes sense as it does with the other end of poor quarterback play have those teams at the bottom.
12. Andrew Peasley – Utah State (LW: 11)
There is so much unknown about Utah State and its quarterback situation now that Jason Shelley is no longer on the team and Andrew Peasley is making his first start for the Aggies when they take on New Mexico this week.
11. Trae Hall – New Mexico (LW: NR)
Hall is still in the driver’s seat to be the starting quarterback for the Lobos with Tevaka Tuioti still injured from his concussion. Hall has not been great in his game time so far. There have been no touchdowns and three interceptions and barely completing over 50% of his passes.
10. Lucas Johnson – San Diego State (LW: 9)
The sample size is very small for Johnson who had a really good and efficient first half vs. Nevada, and it looked like San Diego State found its best starting quarterback in nearly a decade. Then in the second half started and Johnson was hampered by a hamstring injury, so perhaps it is just more playing time to better evaluse Johnson.
10. Haaziq Daniels – Air Force (LW: 10)
After not playing for a few games Daniels performance against New Mexico earned him just 66 passing yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and in the running game he was an efficient 12 rushes for 55 yards with a score. This is not good enough to move up in the rankings.
8. Justin Rogers – UNLV (LW: 8)
UNLV may have fond his quarterback as Rogers made a great showing in the loss to San Jose State when he came in from relief. He ended up completing 12 of 18 passes for 162 yards. This week’s game vs. Wyoming will provide a better challenge.
7. Levi Williams – Wyoming (LW: 7)
With having the past two weeks off so there is not much to say about where he should be ranked either higher or lower. Williams does have a chance to move up with a good showing against a not so good Rebels teams.
6. Patrick O’Brien – Colorado State (LW: 6)
O’Brien also has not played in two weeks so the same thing can be said about Levi Williams. Unless we see playing time it is hard to move him up but he is right in the top half of the league.
