Week 5 in the Mountain West Conference had upsets and overtime periods. Both in some of the game! Let's take a look at this week's results:
Air Force Falcons (3-1) def. Navy Midshipmen (2-2), 35-34 (OT): The Falcons had a comfortable lead throughout the game until the fourth quarter, when Navy outscored them, 18-6. In overtime, a taunting penalty on Navy following its touchdown pushed their extra point back 15 yards, which was missed. The Falcons scored the touchdown and made the extra point for the victory.

Boise St. Broncos (4-0) def. Nevada Wolf Pack (1-3), 30-10: Kellen Moore now has 42 career victories and needs four more to break the NCAA record that Colt McCoy holds. He didn't have an outstanding game, passing for just 142 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw two interceptions. Doug Martin had 126 yards and two scores on the ground.
SMU Mustangs (4-1) def. TCU Horned Frogs (3-2), 40-33 (OT): The Horned Frogs were able to overcome the early deficit they found themselves in by scoring 23 points in the final quarter. They tied the game at 33, but needed overtime to decide the game. After SMU quarterback J.J. McDermott needed just two plays to score a touchdown, Casey Pachall needed to do the same for TCU. On 4th-and-2, Pachall threw an incompletion, ending the Horned Frogs' 22-game home winning streak.
San Jose St. Spartans (2-3) def. Colorado St. Rams (3-2), 38-31: The Rams will be doing some soul-searching after this loss. What should have been an easy victory turned into an embarrassing loss. For extended coverage on this game, please visit our StoryStream.
New Mexico St. Aggies (2-3) def. New Mexico Lobos (0-5), 42-28: The end of the Mike Locksley Era hasn't changed any things for the Lobos. They lost the Rio Grande Rivalry under the direction of interim coach George Barlow.
