Bilo's College Football PASS/FAIL Reports Week 5: Mountain West
PASS: Boise State, Air Force, New Mexico, Wyoming, UNLV, Hawaii
Boise State wasn’t perfect this week, but they managed to avenge an awful loss to USU last season with a 21-10 win.
Air Force took a huge step towards winning the Commander-In-Chief trophy with a commanding win over Navy in which the Falcon passing game was in full effect.
New Mexico picked up a huge must win game against San Jose State, and Bob Davie could come off the hot seat with another win, this week against Boise State.
Wyoming is now 3-2 while nobody was looking, and pounded out a huge win over rival Colorado State.
UNLV finally showed signs of recovery in a big home win over Fresno State, but now faces a huge task on the road against San Diego State this week.
Hawaii is also showing signs of improvement under Nick Rolovich, and the win over Nevada this week was never in doubt.
FAIL: San Diego State, Utah State, San Jose State, Colorado State, Fresno State, Nevada
SDSU had the MWC flub of the week in letting a close game get completely away from them in a whopping loss to South Alabama, who also beat Mississippi State this season.
Utah State is drifting, with only 10 points scored against Boise State. The Aggies need some answers on offense, because the defense actually played fairly well.
San Jose State is looking more and more like a change is needed on the sidelines, as this team has gotten away from Ron Caragher on several levels.
Colorado State continues to under perform under Mike Bobo, as the Rams fell hard to Wyoming this week in a rivalry game. The Rams have been consistently flat.
Fresno State losing to UNLV on the road shows that Tim DeRuyter may likely be gone after this season. The Bulldogs are lifeless.
Nevada fell apart on offense once again this week, scoring just 17 on Hawaii. The Pack is looking more and more lost, and Brian Polian looks clueless.
