Oh, the little conference that could.
The Mountain West keeps on chug-a-lugging, despite not being part of the Bowl Championship Series -- the NCAA's version of Skull and Bones.
Saturday, the seventh-ranked conference in the nation as placed by USA Today had a showdown with the second-ranked Pac-10.
The conference lost in the dusty Southwest may have just found a map to notoriety. TCU warmed up by beating Stanford 31-14, then No. 18 BYU embarrassed previously-ranked UCLA 59-0 in front of a national television audience. The Cougars could have matched the total of the national debt given two more quarters to score. As it was, UCLA suffered its worst loss in 75 years.pdf
