Show us your picks: Week Eight
LARAMIE -- Play along here for a second.
Let's say Air Force finds a way to knock off Boise State Saturday evening in Colorado Springs and the Cowboys take care of business against visiting Utah State.
That would vault Wyoming to the top of the Mountain Division standings, tied with the Broncos at 3-1 in league play. Not to put the cart in front of the horse too much here, but those two meet Nov. 19 in Laramie.
Yes, I know, a lot can happen between then and now. Craig Bohl's team needs to win on the islands and claim the Bronze Boot two weeks later. If you look at the standings, those two teams are a combined 3-10 at the moment.
