Two Mountain West teams seem poised to do what New Mexico and Air Force did last year-- come together like they haven't done in a while-- perhaps even a very long while. This season will be UNLV's and Wyoming's best chance in a long time to break even and perhaps go bowling. Wyoming brings back most of its offense, and with a new coordinator, high expectations.
- WYOMING-- Cowboy fans expect their new offensive coordinator to coax better things from their offense this year. He'll have the pieces to do just that: a veteran QB, backfield, and line. A full season effort in '08 will make the difference between playing in December or watching others play in December.
- UNLV-- This is a make or break year for Mike Sanford's crew. He's got more players on scholarship than he's ever had, and has returning depth all over the field. The Rebels have 7 home games this year, and have as good a chance as ever to be a MWC bowl team
