2012 Mountain West Football Standings: Boise State bounces back, moves to 5-1 in league play

Otto Kitsinger III

The Boise State Broncos picked up a 49-14 win over Hawaii on Saturday to remain one of just three schools with one loss in the conference.

After being handed their first conference loss of the season the previous week, the Boise State Broncos responded with a much-needed win on Saturday in a 35-point blowout of Hawaii.

Now just one-half game behind conference leaders San Diego State and Fresno State, Boise State will next play host to the Colorado State Rams in Week 12 from Bronco Stadium. The Aztecs' 21-19 win on Nov. 3 gives them the valuable tiebreaker over Chris Pederson's Broncos in the short-term, but Fresno State's win over San Diego State earlier in the year also serves to further muddy up the title picture if all three teams win out.

Powered by a 33-11 win over UNLV, the Rams also made a move up the standings this week to reach 2-4 in league play. Colorado State no longer has the opportunity to become bowl-eligible, but can still even its Mountain West mark at 4-4 for the year with a pair of wins to close out the season.

Here are the full Mountain West standings after 11 weeks of action:
