Mountain West Football Riding High

When Air Force hosts 20th-ranked Utah this afternoon, the Falcons will be looking for their first win at Falcon Stadium over a ranked foe since knocking off 20th-ranked Colorado State in 2000.

Both teams enter the game with 3-and-0 marks.

Their solid play has helped bring attention to the Mountain West Conference, along with the performances of 14th-ranked BYU and TCU, who are also 3-and-0.

Utah started getting the league some notice after going to Ann Arbor, Michigan, in the first game of the season and stunning the Wolverines 25-23.

Air Force did its part, beating Houston last week in a game that was moved to Dallas because of Hurricane Ike.
