    Mountain West -Pac-12 partnership

    Mountain West approaches Pac-12
    about West Coast partnership

    PASADENA, Calif. -- Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson said his conference has approached the Pac-12 about what he calls a "best practices" connection -- sort of a West Coast alliance for nonconference scheduling, sharing of officials, and bowl matchups.

    Thompson said there's nothing official but thinks the Pac-12 is receptive to the idea. The 24 teams in the Mountain West and Pac-12 comprise most of the West Coast college football landscape.

    The Mountain West feels solidified after renegotiating television rights with CBS and corraling Boise State and San Diego State back to the league.

    Hawai'i football changing name back to Rainbow Warriors

    Hawai'i football changing name back to Rainbow Warriors
    [​IMG]

    According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Hawaii athletic director Ben Jay has reversed field from a previous decision and all men’s athletic teams will be renamed the Rainbow Warriors. This decision comes just months after Jay decided all men’s sports would simply be named the Warriors. From 2000 to 2012, some teams were named the Warriors and others the Rainbow Warriors. This occurred after former UH football coach June Jones requested the football team be known strictly as the Warriors. Prior to 2000, the football team was known as the Rainbow Warriors.

    Mtn. West suspends Chris Demarest

    The Mountain West Conference suspended Hawaii special teams and safeties coach Chris Demarest one game for inappropriate sideline conduct during a loss to Oregon State.

    A conference official declined to give details, but the release says Demarest was suspended under a sportsmanship rule that governs obscene gestures and language toward other people during games.

    Jay Ajayi's 4 TDs help Boise St. whip Air Force

    ance Friday night lifted Boise State to a second straight win and set a new standard for pinpoint passing.

    Southwick was sharp from start to finish, completing 27 of 29 passes for 287 yards and one touchdown, the most efficient passing game in school history and breaking the previous mark set when Jared Zabransky finished 21 of 23 in 2006.

    Southwick, who completed his first nine passes, also ran for a touchdown in helping the Broncos (2-1, 1-0 Mountain West Conference) to a 42-20 victory over Air Force. For Southwick, who took over last year for highly-respected Kellen Moore and has struggled to win the hearts of fans, any serious reflection on his record-setting performance and his place in school record books will have to wait.

    San Diego State beats Nevada 51-44 in overtime

    Quinn Kaehler threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Eric Judge in overtime and San Diego State beat Nevada 51-44 on Friday night.

    Down 44-23, Nevada's Cody Fajardo had directed three touchdown drives in the fourth quarter as the Wolf Pack (3-3, 2-1 Mountain West Conference) wiped out a huge deficit to tie the score with 1:38 left on a 5-yard TD pass to Richy Turner.

    Kaehler, who completed 23 of 32 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns, threw a 9-yard pass to Adam Muema on a first-down play in overtime.

    Wyoming fires Chris Tormey

    Wyoming coach Dave Christensen fired defensive coordinator Chris Tormey on Tuesday after two straight losses in which the Cowboys surrendered more than 50 points a game.

    "I felt that we needed to make a change at this time to give our football team and the young men on it the best opportunity to win our remaining four regular-season games," Christensen said in a statement. "The last two weeks, our defense has not performed up to the expectations of our coaching staff, our players, nor our fans."

    Christensen named defensive line coach Jamar Cain as interim coordinator.

    Tormey, who was not available for comment Tuesday, had been Wyoming's defensive coordinator for the past two seasons. He will be paid through his contract, which expires in December, according to the university.

    The coaching change comes after news last week that Wyoming president Bob Sternberg had hired an outside consultant to evaluate the school's football and men's basketball programs.

    Wyoming (4-4, 2-2 Mountain West) has a bye this week. The Cowboys next play No. 16 Fresno State (7-0, 4-0) in Laramie on Nov. 9.

    Derek Carr throws for 487 yards to break Fresno St. career mar

    Another win, another school record, another step closer to a BCS bowl.

    That's becoming a familiar pattern for Derek Carr and Fresno State.

    Carr threw for 487 yards to break the Fresno State career passing record and lead the 16th-ranked Bulldogs to eight straight wins to open the season for the first time since 1989 with a 41-23 victory over Nevada on Saturday night.

    No. 16 Fresno St. rides Derek Carr's 4 TDs past Wyoming

    Fresno State failed to score in the first quarter for the first time this season. Then the Bulldogs more than made up for it the rest of the game.

    Derek Carr threw for 366 yards and four touchdowns, Josh Quezada rushed for 105 yards and a score, and No. 16 Fresno State scored 48 unanswered points in beating Wyoming 48-10 Saturday night.

    Derek Carr throws for 527 yards, 7 TDs in No. 15 Fresno State's win

    Carr threw for 527 yards and a school-record seven touchdowns in his final regular-season home game to help the Bulldogs clinch a spot in the Mountain West title game with a 69-28 victory over New Mexico on Saturday.
