Gridiron oddity: have you noticed that no two MWC football teams finished with the same conference or overall record? The league standings go from eight-win TCU down to zero-win CSU in an incremental step down from first place through ninth place. Needless to say, this is the first time that has ever occurred.

Since the advent of the uniform 12-game regular season schedule, it is also the first time in the MWC that there were no identical overall records.
