BRIGHAM YOUNG 35, WYOMING 10 ----------------------------

LARAMIE, Wyoming (Ticker) -- Max Hall passed for 311 yards and three touchdowns to lead Brigham Young to its seven consecutive win and at least a share of the Mountain West Conference title with a 35-10 triumph over Wyoming.

Harvey Unga rushed for 110 yards and a pair of scores for BYU (8-2, 6-0 MWC), which has not lost a conference game since November 19, 2005 - a 41-34 defeat to Utah.

Karsten Sween finished with 217 yards passing but was intercepted once for the Cowboys (5-6, 2-5 MWC), who have lost five of their last six games.

UTAH 28, NEW MEXICO 10 ----------------------

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah kept alive its slim hopes for a share of the Mountain West Conference title with a 28-10 victory over New Mexico.

Darrell Mack rushed for 77 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries to go over the 1,000-yard mark for the season and help the Utes (8-3, 5-2 MWC) post their seventh straight victory.

Brian Johnson completed 16-of-27 passes for 165 yards and a touchdown for Utah, which needs BYU to lose its last two games to have a chance to tie for the conference title.

Donovan Porterie connnected on only 18-for-41 passes for 198 yards for New Mexico (7-4, 4-3 MWC), which committed four turnovers.

AIR FORCE 55, SAN DIEGO ST 23 -----------------------------

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (Ticker) -- Jim Ollis, Chad Hall and Ty Paffett each rushed for more than 100 yards and multiple touchdowns as Air Force rolled over San Diego State, 55-23, on Saturday in a matchup of Mountain West Conference foes.

Ollis led the way for the Falcons (9-3, 6-2 MWC) with 163 yards and two scores on 15 carries. Hall carried the ball 19 times for 151 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while Paffett ran for 105 yards and found the end zone three times on just seven attempts.

The Aztecs (4-6, 3-3 MWC) jumped out to an early 7-0 lead on Kevin O'Connell's one-yard rushing touchdown, but the Falcons responded with 21 unanswered points en route to a 28-17 edge at the break.

COLORADO ST 42, GEORGIA SOUTHERN 34 -----------------------------------

FORT COLLINS, Colorado (Ticker) -- Gartell Johnson had three total touchdowns as Colorado State defeated Georgia Southern, 42-34.

Johnson rushed for 136 yards and two scores on 19 carries and hauled in an eight-yard touchdown reception for the Rams (2-9), who snapped a three-game skid and won their first home game of the season.

Kyle Bell's three-yard rushing score with 13:20 left in the contest gave Colorado State a 42-17 advantage, but Georgia Southern finished the game with 17 unanswered points.

TCU 34, UNLV 10 ---------------

FORT WORTH, Texas (Ticker) -- Quarterback Andy Dalton scored a pair of three-yard rushing touchdowns in the first half as TCU cruised to a 34-10 triumph over UNLV in a Mountain West Conference battle.
