AROUND THE MOUNTAIN WEST
• Dating back to the 2019 season, the Mountain West has won 19 games against autonomous-5 opponents, including 16 against the Pac-12. This is the most wins in that time span amongst all non-autonomous-5 conferences.

• In the past 18 years, the Mountain West has been the top non-autonomous-5 conference 10 times and second five times.

• The Mountain West produced the first non-automatic-qualifying FBS team into a BCS bowl game (Utah – 2005 Fiesta Bowl) and into the College Football Playoff (Boise State – 2014 Fiesta Bowl).

• The Mountain West has had at least two teams nationally ranked in each of the last six seasons.

• After Wyoming’s double-overtime victory over Tulsa on Sept. 3, the Mountain West now has a 16-11 record against opponents from the American Athletic Conference.

• Air Force is riding a six-game win streak, which is tied as the third-longest active streak nationally, trailing only Louisiana (15) and Clemson (8).

• Air Force and San Diego State both have five-game road win streaks, tied for third-longest in FBS. The Falcons travel to Wyoming on Friday, Sept. 16, while the Aztecs play at No. 15/14 Utah on Saturday, Sept. 17.

• Fresno State senior QB Jake Haener, who was named 2022 MW Preseason Offensive Player of the Year, has thrown at least one touchdown pass in 21 consecutive games, beginning on Oct. 24, 2019. This is tied as the third-longest stretch in Conference history. Carson Strong (Nevada) and Derek Carr (Fresno State) hold the league record with a touchdown pass in 26 straight games, while Haener is tied with Andy Dalton (TCU).

• Over the last 18 seasons, the MW has captured the Bowl Challenge Cup five times and owns the third-best win percentage in bowl games among the 10 FBS conferences (.583), trailing only the SEC (.621) and Sun Belt (.593).
