2012 Mountain West Standings: Air Force Occupies Bottom Of League With Boise State

The Air Force Falcons are now on a three-game losing streak and stand at 3-10 in the 2012 Mountain West standings. The New Mexico Lobos picked up a 30-point victory, 86-56, over the Falcons on Wednesday night.

The Falcons close out the regular season on Saturday with a game against the Colorado St. Rams, a team that upset the UNLV Rebels on Wednesday. A victory could move the Falcons into outright possession of seventh place in the league, but the team lost its road game against the Rams earlier in the season. More than likely, the Falcons will be 3-11 in conference since Boise State would need to upset the New Mexico Lobos.

The Falcons are looking at an opening round match against New Mexico, UNLV or San Diego State, depending on the outcomes of Saturday's games.

Here is the Saturday schedule for the Mountain West:

Boise State vs. New Mexico, 2:00 p.m. MT
Colorado State vs. Air Force, 2:00 p.m.
San Diego State vs. TCU, 5:00 p.m.
Wyoming vs. UNLV, 8:00 p.m.
