Head coach Rob Neilson was named the Mountain West Coach of the Year, while senior Corinne Larsen, senior Kristy Frank and sophomore Tatum Stall were each named to the MW All-Conference Team.

With a hitting percentage of .238, Utah State is also on pace to tie the program record previously set in 2016. Picked to finish ninth in the conference in the preseason poll, Nielson and the Aggies snapped numerous losing streaks to MW opponents this season, defeating Boise State and Wyoming for the first time since 2017, and besting Colorado State for the first time since 1982.

(AP Photo/Ted S. Warren) SEATTLE (AP) — For 120 minutes, Real Salt Lake never threatened, failing to send even one shot in the direction of the Seattle Sounders net. When it came time for the penalty shootout, RSL was right on target. Justen Glad scored the deciding goal in the sixth round of the shootout, and Real Salt Lake beat Seattle 6-5 in the tiebreaker after a scoreless game to eliminate the Sounders in the opening round of the MLS Cup playoffs Tuesday night.

There isn’t a team in either division that has clinched its spot.   The West has been narrowed down to two teams: San Diego State and Fresno State.

All three took turns picking wins up against each other: Utah State beat Air Force, Air Force beat Boise State and Boise State beat Utah State.   Here are the scenarios, broken down as simply as possible.   Scenario No. 1: Boise State, Air Force and Utah State all win.   If all three teams win, Air Force gets the bid.
