Week 12 Mountain West Football Power Rankings

By

As for those first-place votes, Boise State took home eight and then it was Fresno State who was No. 2 and then Air Force third in the league. San Diego State made a jump to the third spot after Wyoming’s loss to Boise State.

The bottom teams made a slight change with New Mexico now holding down the 12th and final spot as the Lobos remain winless in Mountain West play.

12. New Mexico (LW: 11, 13 points)

This team just needs some sort of offense, specifically a quarterback.

11. Nevada (LW: 12, 17 points)

The positive is that Nate Cox looked a little bit better but this whole team has a ways to go.

10. Hawaii (LW: 11, 26 points)

The offense is looking a bit better and being healthy helps a lot, and it showed in their upset win at home to spoil UNLV’s bowl chances.

9. Colorado State (LW: 10, 30 points)

Wide receiver Tory Horton has a case for being the best offensive player in the conference. Too bad his team isn’t all that great this year.

8. UNLV (LW: 8, 48 points)

That Hawaii loss stung and the difficulty of the back half of the schedule and coupled with injuries, the Rebels are almost for sure going to miss out on a bowl game.

7. San Jose State (LW: 3, 52 points)

Upset by Utah State but a chance to get to seven wins as they play in the Dick Tomey game at home against Hawaii.

6. Utah State (LW: 7, 60 points)

If only this team was better early in the season than late, they’d have a shot at repeating as conference champions. All things are rolling before the finale and a surprise bowl game.

5. Wyoming (LW: 4, 76 points)

It all comes down to its passing game. Literally, everything else is there for this team to be a conference contender. Even with QB issues, the Pokes were right here until the final two weeks.

4. San Diego State (LW: 4, 80 points)

Again, Jalen Mayden showed up at quarterback. Let’s cross our fingers he doesn’t hit the portal in a moth.

3. Air Force (LW: 3, 1 first-place vote, 90 points)

Not super dominant vs. their rivals the Rams but good enough to just bully Colorado State around to win.

2. Fresno State (LW: 4, 1 first-place vote, 100 points)

All things are clicking for Fresno State. They are healthy and ready to go for the title game in a few weeks.

1. Boise State (LW: 1, 8 first-place vote, 111 points)

The Broncos are looking to cap an undefeated conference slate, and those words were likely in very few minds after that early season loss to UTEP.
