Air Force:

It was a day of celebration near Colorado Springs on Saturday, when the Air Force football team (4-1, 2-0 MWC) defeated rival Navy 14-6 at Falcon Stadium. The win for the Falcons snapped a seven-game slide to the Naval Academy and the first win in the rivalry game for Air Force coach Troy Calhoun.

The Air Force defense held Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs to 33 percent passing with only 103 yards and two interceptions. He also had only 43 yards rushing.

Brigham Young:

BYU is suffering a rough start to the 2010 football season as the Cougars (1-4, 0-1) lost their fourth consecutive game Friday night on ESPN, losing to Utah State 31-16.

While it hasn’t been business as usual this season for the Utah volleyball team (7-8, 2-1), struggling throughout the first half of the season, the Utes were able to sweep rival BYU in Provo, Utah on Friday.
True freshman Morgan Odale had a match-high 19 kills in the win.
Utah has now won five consecutive matches over the Cougars.


The Wyoming football team (2-3, 0-1) ended a three-game slide in Ohio on Saturday, edging out Toledo 20-15.
