Mountain West Football Results: Boise State Stomps Colorado State, Nevada Rolls Over New Mexico

The Saturday schedule for the Mountain West Conference offered no surprises, but then no one was expecting any. Rather, the story of conference realignment is what dominated the day. OK, Saturday's victors dominated just as much as those non-field stories.

Wyoming Cowboys (4-2) def. UNLV Rebels (1-5), 41-14: The Cowboys easily built a 20-0 lead in the first quarter, but then it quickly disappeared in the second quarter after the Rebels scored two straight touchdowns. However, Wyoming answered back in the second half with 21 unanswered points, including a 76-yard punt return.

Nevada Wolf Pack (3-3) vs. New Mexico Lobos (0-6), 49-7: There's no way to sugarcoat these losses for New Mexico. At least Tarean Austin picked up a 17-yard touchdown run to prevent the shutout.

Boise St. Broncos (6-0) def. Colorado St. Rams (3-3), 63-13: This one was not pretty at all. The Rams were outclassed the entire game and had no answer to Kellen Moore or Doug Martin.

Boise State Vs. Colorado State Final Score: Kellen Moore, Broncos Trample Rams, 63-13

The Colorado St. Rams won't have many fond memories of their first game against the Boise St. Broncos. The Rams suffered a massive defeat, 63-13. The Broncos led by as many as 35 points in the second quarter before the Rams were able to muster two touchdowns. However, things didn't get any kinder in the second half, as Boise State scored 28 unanswered points in the third quarter.

Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore picked up his 44th career victory and is one win away from tying Colt McCoy's NCAA record of 45. He will go for it next week against the Air Force Falcons. Moore was 26-of-30 for 338 yards and four touchdown passes.

Running back Doug Martin put up 200 yards on 20 carries against the Rams. He found the end zone three times. Fellow running back D.J. Harper entered the end zone twice.

Both Colorado State touchdowns came from non-quarterbacks. Tight end Crockett Gillmore and wide receiver Charles Lovett found the end zone on their throws. Quarterback Pete Thomas struggled to reach 100 passing yards, going 10-of-24.

The Rams (3-3) are on the road next week against the UTEP Miners.

San Diego State Vs. Air Force Final Score: Aztecs' Ryan Lindley, Ronnie Hillman Too Much For Falcons, 41-27

The Air Force Falcons are almost out of their tough October schedule, and it can't come soon enough. After losing to Notre Dame, 59-33, last Saturday, the Falcons returned home to host the San Diego St. Aztecs. After a solid first half, the Falcons let the game slip quickly out of reach during the second half. They fell, 41-27.

Air Force quarterback Tim Jefferson threw his seventh touchdown pass of the season when he hit Jonathan Warzeka for a 26-yard reception in the end zone, putting Air Force in a 7-3 lead. After San Diego State quarterback Ryan Lindley put the Aztecs back in the lead, 10-7, during the second quarter, the Falcons answered back with six minutes remaining in the second half. Punter David Baska lined up as the place kicker on a fourth-and-three at San Diego's four-yard line and ran the ball in for the score.

Unfortunately for the Falcons, San Diego State's Brandon Davis returned the ensuing kickoff for a 98-yard touchdown. Falcons kicked Parker Herrington tied the game at 17 with a 44-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter.

The Falcons defense has been hurt by injuries, which finally came back to hurt them in the second half. After taking a 20-17 lead several minutes into the third quarter, Air Force allowed 24 straight points over the third and fourth quarters. Lindley threw his second touchdown pass of the game, a 28-yard strike to Colin Lockett, and running back Ronnie Hillman scored twice in the fourth quarter. Hillman picked up 172 yards on 27 carries to go with the touchdowns.

Jefferson found Warzeka for a second touchdown with six minutes left in the game, but that was all the Falcons could do at the end. Jefferson, who was 22-of-36 for 224 yards, threw two interceptions in the game, one which led to a field goal. A Mike DeWitt fumble gave way to Lindley's second touchdown pass.

The Falcons (3-3) visit the Boise St. Broncos next Saturday.
