Week 1 MWC Power Rankings

Outside of the debacle by New Mexico, the Mountain West was very impressive...

1. TCU (1-0)- The first test has been passed in Oregon State. Didn't play that well and still beat the team I think will win the Pac 10.
2. Utah (1-0)- Beating a top 15 team to open the season is always impressive. Nice start to what could be a magical season.
3. Air Force (1-0)- 437 yards rushing will get the job done. Let's see how they do next week against BYU.
4. BYU (1-0)- They beat a Washington team that will struggle to make a bowl game. Don't put too much weight on it. Still, Riley Nelson and Jake Heaps were both better than expected.
5. San Diego State (1-0)- Doesn't matter who it's against, a 47-0 shutout is always impressive. Should jump to the 4 spot next week after either Air Force or BYU fall.
6. Wyoming (1-0)- 28-20 win over Southern Utah isn't going to get the folks in Laramie excited.
7. UNLV (0-1)- Hung with Wisconsin for a half. Second half wasn't pretty.
8. Colorado State (0-1)- Lost 24-3 to a poor Colorado team. Steve Fairchild's seat just got hotter.
12. New Mexico (0-1)- 72-0? Really? I know it was against Oregon, but they had a new quarterback and their backup running back. Mike Locksley may not make it out of September.
