Logan • As the Aggies prepare for the program's first-ever Mountain West game, the Mountain West took a bit of a hit in college football's opening weekend.
The conference went 3-9, with Fresno State's 54-51 overtime win over Rutgers as the league-wide highlight. David Carr threw for 456 yards and five touchdowns to get the Bulldogs a victory. Air Force and San Jose State took care of business in openers against FCS schools, Colgate and Sacramento State.
Every other team fell a little short. Utah State's four-point loss to Utah looked better in comparison to UNLV getting crushed by Minnesota, New Mexico falling to UT San Antonio, San Diego State's pummeling by Eastern Illinois and Nevada getting outscored nearly three-to-one against UCLA. Shockingly, conference flagship Boise State was drubbed in a 38-6 loss to Washington as well.
