College football has been over since Jan. 10, but spring practices are slowly starting to get under way across the country. As for the Mountain West, the Air Force Falcons are the first team to suit up for spring practice as they begin practicing on Wednesday Feb. 23 and end practice March 16 with no spring game.
There will be some intrigue this spring as the Boise St. Broncos enter into the league, the San Diego St. Aztecs have a new head coach and we will see how TCU will handle their Rose Bowl victory this spring (probably fine).
With the Utah Utes and BYU Cougars out of the Mountain West the league will need to find a few new teams to spotlight to the national media. Boise State and TCU fight the mold, but look for Air Force and San Diego State to pick up the slack as they are the consensus to challenge Boise State and TCU for the conference title.
Here are the dates, so enjoy the spring football, because once May hits college football is still a lengthy four months away.
