The Week 10 Mountain West Conference slate is highlighted by a matchup between two of the three teams unbeaten in conference play. Wyoming will be looking to make a statement when they host TCU with first place on the line, while Air Force can finish off a sweep of the service academies with a win at home against Army. Here's the full schedule:
TCU Horned Frogs (6-2, 3-0 MWC) vs. Wyoming Cowboys (5-2, 2-0 MWC), 12:00 p.m. MT, The Mtn
The Cowboys are off to an impressive start considering they won just three games a year ago, but the best win on their resume came against San Diego State. Can they hang with the conference elite, or is their success mainly the product of a soft schedule? We'll see. TCU's potent offense presents a tough challenge for a Wyoming defense that has been porous at times this season.
Army Black Knights (3-5) vs. Air Force Falcons (4-4, 1-3 MWC), 1:30 p.m. MT, CBS
The Knights need this one if they want to maintain mildly realistic bowl hopes, while the Falcons are looking to secure the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy for the second straight season. If you like a good handoff, this is your game.
New Mexico Lobos (0-8, 0-3 MWC) vs. San Diego State Aztecs (4-3, 1-2 MWC), 6:00 p.m. MT, The Mtn
New Mexico's season of pain figures to continue against the Aztecs, who opened as 36-1/2 point favorites. Over the last three weeks, the Lobos have been outscored 160-7. They haven't lost a game by fewer than two touchdowns since late September.
Boise State Broncos (7-0, 2-0) vs. UNLV Rebels (2-5, 1-1), 8:30 p.m. MT, CBS Sports Network
Challenges lie ahead for Boise State, but UNLV is not one of them. The Rebels' sub-par pass defense should prove no match for Kellen Moore and the Broncos offense
