LARAMIE -- What's on the line in the Mountain West during this final week of the regular season?


UNLV can not only punch its ticket to the conference title game, a home win over San Jose State means that tilt will take place inside Allegiant Stadium. The upstart Rebels will host the winner of the Boise State-Air Force game, which is today inside Albertsons Stadium.

A UNLV loss ... things get muddy.

"If SJSU beats UNLV, there will be a three-way tie between UNLV, SJSU and the winner of the AF/BSU game. The three-team round-robin tiebreaker wouldn’t break either tie. The selected computer rankings will identify the two highest-ranked tied teams to participate in the championship game. Once those two teams are identified, the head-to-head result will determine the host. If the teams did not play each other in the regular season, the highest-ranked team in the computer rankings will host the championship game."

That blurb comes straight from the league.

A Colorado State and Utah State victory will make those two programs bowl eligible. The Mountain West already boasts six of those: Wyoming, Fresno State, Air Force, Boise State, UNLV and San Jose State.

The Cowboys can snap a six-game winless streak away from Laramie with a win in Reno Saturday night. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. and the game will be televised on CBS Sports Network.

University of Wyoming’s Top 50 Football Players

During the summer of 2021, counted down the Top 50 football players in University of Wyoming history, presented by Premier Bone & Joint Centers, Worthy of Wyoming.

The rules are simple: What was the player's impact while in Laramie? That means NFL stats, draft status or any other accolade earned outside of UW is irrelevant when it comes to this list.

This isn't a one-man job. This task called for a panel of experts. Joining 7220's Cody Tucker are Robert GagliardiJared NewlandRyan Thorburn, and Kevin McKinney.

We all compiled our own list of 50 and let computer averages do the work. Think BCS -- only we hope this catalog is fairer.
