Both the San Diego State Aztecs and UNLV Rebels went undefeated in conference play last week, and as such both ascended slightly in the most recent edition of the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll. The Aztecs, who knocked off the Wyoming Cowboys and surging Colorado State Rams, moved from No. 25 to No. 23, while the Rebels, who defeated the Boise State Broncos and Air Force Falcons, jumped up to No. 17 from No. 20.
It's not all good news for Mountain West teams though, as the New Mexico Lobos fell from the poll after losing two straight games to Colorado State and the TCU Horned Frogs. The Aztecs will finish the regular season this week with two straight road games against Boise State and TCU, and the Rebels will travel to Colorado State on Wednesday before ending with Wyoming at home over the weekend.
Here is the full USA Today/ESPN Coaches poll.
