CONFERENCE OUTLOOK
After a disappointing showing last weekend, the Western Athletic Conference bounced back this Friday and Saturday.  Utah State got the party started with a dominant performance against BYU (1-4) on national television, and Hawai’i quarterback Bryant Moniz provided an incredible last call, sending everyone home talking about his 532-yard performance against Louisiana Tech.
Boise State and Nevada continued to solidify their status as national powers this season (might be a stretch for the Wolfpack, but I still believe they will be a 1-loss team come December), while Idaho bounced back after a disappointing loss to Colorado State (1-4) by crushing Western Michigan (1-3) on the road (albeit committing four turnovers).
Fresno State did what they were suppose to against an FCS-foe in Cal Poly (3-2).  The talented (for their classification) Mustangs hung around until halftime, then the Bulldogs put them away in the second half with a solid ground attack that finished with 253 combined yards rushing.
In fact, the WAC was a San Jose State away from a perfect weekend.  The Spartans – who I am now convinced is the least talented team in the conference – were out scored 14-0 in the second half by UC Davis (2-3), who notched just their second victory in school history over an FBS opponent.
