Washington lost coach Steve Sarkisian to USC earlier this week, but the Huskies moved quickly in finding his replacement.

During his tenure with Boise State, Petersen went 92-12 and won 57 conference games. The Broncos also played in two BCS bowls under Petersen’s watch.

After a second consecutive losing season, Wyoming fired coach Dave Christensen on Sunday.
Christensen recorded a 27-35 mark during his five seasons at Wyoming, including an 8-5 record in 2011.
Christensen guided Wyoming to two bowl games, but the Cowboys were just 9-15 over the last two years.
Considering Christensen’s experience and background on offense, the veteran assistant could be a name to watch for coordinator openings at Florida and Iowa State.

Wyoming and Utah State are set to play this Saturday in a key Mountain West game. The Aggies need to win to get to the conference championship, while the Cowboys need a victory to get bowl eligible.
However, both teams will have a little extra incentive this week, as the schools announced a new rivalry trophy. The winner will claim a rifle after the game, which is a tribute to Jim Bridger – a famous mountain man and explorer. This rivalry will be known as “Bridger’s Battle.”
We're excited to announce a new rivalry series with Wyoming that includes a new traveling trophy... The very... http://t.co/lZwFe6VlIz— Utah State Football (@USUFootball) November 25, 2013

Boise State had a costly 34-17 win over Nevada on Saturday, as quarterback Joe Southwick suffered a broken ankle in the first quarter and is out indefinitely.
In his absence, backup Grant Hedrick filled in admirably, completing 18 of 21 passes for 150 yards, while rushing for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Hedrick has thrown 57 passes in his Boise State career, but Saturday’s game against Nevada was his first extended action.
Southwick could return later this season, but his comeback could largely depend on what bowl Boise State plays in.
Hedrick’s task will get tougher this week, as Boise State plays at BYU on Friday night.

Utah State has scored plenty of touchdowns over the last two years, but as this video shows, the Aggies may need a little work on their touchdown celebrations.
Receiver Bruce Natson catches a touchdown during a scrimmage and is ready to celebrate with his linemen. However, as Natson jumps up to celebrate, the lineman appears to drop the receiver.
