Air Force:

Dark horse hopes of becoming the Mountain West Conference football champions were put on pause Saturday, when Air Force (5-2, 3-1) was upset at San Diego State 27-25.

Despite 301 yards rushing and 175 yards passing by the Falcons, it wasn’t enough to hold off SDSU, which won its first game over a ranked opponent in 14 years.

Air Force’s schedule doesn’t get any easier as the Falcons head to TCU this week.

Brigham Young:

It hasn’t been a picture-perfect season for the BYU volleyball team (8-12, 3-3) this year, but the Cougars swept both Air Force and UNLV this weekend, pushing their winning streak to five matches.

In the winning streak, which began on Oct. 7 against SDSU, BYU has swept all five opponents. Prior to the match against SDSU, the Cougars had lost eight in a row.

New Mexico:

New Mexico’s women’s soccer team (10-1-3, 4-0-0) pulled yet another upset on Saturday, when the No. 25 Lobos defeated No. 8 BYU in double-overtime, 1-0.

Senior forward Kate Wyrick scored the game-winning goal in the 102nd minute, which was fitting as Saturday served as Senior Night for UNM.

It was on the fourth time in history that UNM has defeated BYU.


Baseball America has ranked SDSU’s 2011 recruiting class 17th overall out of 292 NCAA Division I schools.

The main players highlighted were all pitchers: Freshmen Philip Walby and Evan Thomas and junior college transfer Mike Hachadorian.

The Aztecs have already concluded fall scrimmages.


College football’s first BCS rankings were released on Sunday and the TCU Horned Frogs (7-0, 3-0) were placed at No. 5. Ahead of the Frogs, in order, are Oklahoma, Oregon, Boise State and Auburn.

In the AP Top 25, TCU remained at No. 4, but was jumped by Oklahoma, who moved into the No. 3 spot.


The UNLV women’s soccer team (10-5-0, 2-2-0) had four records either broken or tied on Senior Day Saturday when the Rebels beat Air Force 3-0.

Senior forward Ashleigh Shoughro scored two goals in the victory, giving her the UNLV record for goals in a season (13) and in a career (26).

She also now has 29 points this season, a new school record, and 68 in her career, which is tied for UNLV’s all-time best.


After dropping its previous two matches to San Diego and SDSU, the Utah volleyball team (9-10, 4-2) got back on track this weekend, sweeping both Air Force and UNLV.

Utes’ junior outside hitter Jennifer Lanting recorded a career-high 13 kills against Air Force and had a hitting percentage of 67.

Utah now moves into second place in the MWC standings.


The Wyoming football team (2-5, 0-3) struggled again at home on Saturday, losing to No. 9 Utah 30-6. It was the fifth time this season the Cowboys have lost to an opponent who has at one point been in the Top 25.

Wyoming quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels returned to action after missing last week due to injury and had only 84 yards passing.

The Cowboys were held to only 184 yards of offense.
