The first bowl game of the season gave us an indication of what to expect this year from the Mountain West throughout bowl season. Wyoming won the ‘The Thrilla in New Mexico’ by beating a solid Fresno State team. BYU destroyed an Oregon State team that was almost in the Rose Bowl and probably wanted to be there instead of Vegas. Nothing against Vegas. The MWC continued their stomping of all things Pac 10 when Utah took apart a Jahvid Best-less California team. Utah has won 9 straight bowl games-impressive. Air Force might have looked better than anybody in the conference when they destroyed Houston. I have already used this quote in another blog but it might be my best quote ever so I want to use it again. We have the greatest and most efficient military ever, but imagine if we had the technology to display the enemy in Missouri and Houston uniforms. Our military would win flawless victories every time. If TCU wins against Boise the Mountain West will attain a perfect bowl record of 5-0 furthering the argument that they deserve an automatic BCS bid. If TCU destroys Boise I might just jump on that band wagon too.
