Air Force:

The Falcons women’s soccer team won their first MWC game since 2003 on Sunday, in a 1-0 defeat of TCU.

The lone goal of the game came off the foot of junior Kelly Bieber in the 25th minute. Before Sunday’s match, the Falcons had not won in their past 41 MWC matches. The Falcons move to 8-9-1 on the season (1-5-0 MWC).

Brigham Young:

The Cougars extended their winning streak over Wyoming in football to six games on Saturday, as they held on to defeat the Cowboys 25-20 at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

The Cougars rushed for 217 yards as a team, and freshman quarterback Jake Heaps led the Cougars to a victory despite throwing for just 81 yards on the day.

New Mexico:

Senior setter Jade Michaelsen set a school record in career assists as the Lobos downed the Utah Utes in volleyball on Friday night.

The win puts the Lobos (13-8, 5-3 MWC) in sole possession of second place in the conference with a road swing to UNLV and Air Force set for this weekend.


DeMarco Sampson corralled two touchdown passes to help the Aztecs defeat the hapless New Mexico Lobos in Albuquerque on Saturday, 30-20.

The Aztecs (5-2, 2-1 MWC) are a win away from becoming bowl eligible and have two winnable contests against Wyoming and Colorado State on the horizon.


Ed Wesley rushed for a career-best 209 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday, as the Horned Frogs dealt the Air Force Falcons their second consecutive loss.

Wesley outrushed the No. 1 rushing attack in the country by himself in Saturday’s contest, as the Falcons only rushed for 184 yards.

No. 4 TCU looks to move up in the BCS standings, as a No. 1-ranked team fell for the third straight week.


The Rebels volleyball team continued their struggles on Saturday afternoon, dropping a three-set match to the San Diego State Aztecs at the Cox Pavilion.

Rebels senior outside hitter Sara Nehf led the team with 9 kills. UNLV only managed a .279 hitting percentage, as they lost their fourth consecutive 3-set match.


The Lady Utes soccer team shut down the UNLV Rebels on Saturday, winning a 3-0 affair at Ute Field.
The Utes (5-13-1, 3-2-1 MWC) were helped largely by sophomore Katie Martinez, who drilled the game-winning goal. Martinez missed the entire 2009 season due to injuries, and the first 14 matches of the 2010 season.


The surprising Wyoming volleyball team ran into a juggernaut on Friday night, as they were swept by No. 15 Colorado State at Moby Arena.

The Cowgirls (19-5, 4-4 MWC) fall to a three-way tie for fourth place in the conference with Friday’s loss, a disappointment considering their incredible 15-1 non-conference record.
