Mountain West Football Results, Week 2: TCU Rebounds With Victory Over Air Force; Arkansas Upends New Mexico

Whatever faint BCS hopes the Air Force Falcons (1-1) had entering this season disappeared on Saturday afternoon when the TCU Horned Frogs (1-1) rebounded from their season-opening loss to the Baylor Bears. The Horned Frogs came away with the 35-19 victory over the Falcons. Sophomore quarterback Casey Pachall was outstanding, connecting on 11 straight passes to start the game and finishing 20-fo-25 for 206 yards and two touchdowns.

How did the rest of the Mountain West do?

San Diego St. Aztecs (2-0) def. Army Black Knights (0-2), 23-20 - Aztecs running back Ronnie Hillman scored two rushing touchdowns and piled up 117 yards on the ground. Wide receiver Colin Lockett had 113 yards of Ryan Lindley's 146 passing yards. But it was Abelardo Perez who came up with the go-ahead field goal at the 9:30 mark to deliver the victory.

Colorado St. Rams (2-0) def. Northern Colorado Bears (0-2), 33-14 - The Rams easily won this game, but they did lose linebacker Mychal Sisson before the start of the second half. The Rams are 2-0 heading into next week's road game against the 0-2 Colorado Buffaloes.

Washington St. Cougars (2-0) def. UNLV Rebels (0-2), 52-7 - Marshall Lobbestael's five touchdowns and 361 passing yards were too much for the Rebels, just as Wisconsin's Russell Wilson was too much for them last week.

Wyoming Cowboys (2-0) def. Texas St. Bobcats (0-2), 45-10 - The Wyoming rushing attack was in full gear on Saturday afternoon, picking up 382 yards and five touchdowns. Ghaali Muhammad and Brandon Miller each had over 100 rushing yards. They enter their contest next week against Bowling Green with a 2-0 record.

No. 14 Arkansas Razorbacks (2-0) def. New Mexico Lobos (0-2), 52-3 - The Lobos were shutout for the final 50 minutes (give or take a few seconds) of this game. Tyler Wilson threw for 269 yards and the running backs combined for 274 yards on the ground and four touchdowns.
