2012 Mountain West Standings: Air Force Tied For Last In Mountain West With Boise State

The good news for the Air Force Falcons is that every team in the Mountain West Conference makes the end of the year tournament. The bad news is that the Falcons are at the bottom of the conference with a 3-8 record in the Mountain West after losing to the TCU Horned Frogs.

Still, the Mountain West has every team at .500 overall or better this season. Air Force has three games remaining, the next two against ranked opponents, UNLV and New Mexico. That will likely be a preview of the Falcon's opening round game in the Mountain West Tournament since the Lobos are first in the conference and the Rebels second.
