The vision of prognosticators looking in at the upcoming Mountain West race probably has changed, but only a bit.
There is still the “Big Four,” beginning with the University of New Mexico followed by Boise State, San Diego State and UNLV. But has the order changed from the preseason musings tossed out in October?
And is 10-2 Utah State good enough to change it to a “Big Five?”
And could it be that the rest of the MW teams are fired up to prove everyone wrong?
UNM was the almost-unanimous preseason pick to protect its MW title and return to the throne. Right now, there really is no reason to question that October pick.
But are the No. 20-ranked San Diego State Aztecs now the favorites heading into January?
For sure, this is going to be a dog-eat-dog race and there doesn’t look to be too many conference cupcakes, especially for teams playing on the road.
UNM is 9-3 with all three losses coming against quality teams.
Anytime you head into a conference race with maybe the best one-two inside game — Alex Kirk and Cameron Bairstow — and probably the best all-around guard — Kendall Williams — you know you are going to be a threat for that title.
But a few challengers for that throne have stepped up, starting with San Diego State’s Aztecs.
