MOUNTAIN WEST CONFERENCE


PLAYER OF THE WEEK

TEXAS CHRISTIAN QUARTERBACK ANDY DALTON

Dalton completed 21 of 26 passes for 355 yards and three touchdowns in the Horned Frogs' 47-7 victory at Utah.

FROM THE LOCKER ROOM

"I don't know what it's like. I never had seniors to tell me any stories." -- Air Force defensive end Rick Ricketts, on looking forward to visiting the White House after the Falcons won the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy for the first time since 2002

THE WRITTEN WORD

"On second thought, maybe the Pac-12 wasn't such a good idea. A day after announcing next season's schedule, the Utes got a reality moment: Moving up could be painful. ... And the Utes thought the seasons were arduous now. Wait 'til next year, when there aren't any New Mexicos or UNLVs to abuse. " -- Deseret News (Salt Lake City) columnist Brad Rock, on Utah's one-sided loss to TCU

COACH-SPEAK

"It was one of those games where the score was not indicative of how lopsided it was." -- Utah's Kyle Whittingham, on the 40-point loss to TCU

THIS WEEK'S TOP GAME

No. 15 Utah at Notre Dame. It usually wouldn't be tough for a Mountain West team to get fired up for such a game, but after getting blasted by TCU, the Utes will show whether they are resilient.
