TCU hasn't even left Fort Worth for Glendale, Ariz., yet and the No. 4 team in the BCS standings is already winning. Why? The Mountain West Conference has put together a solid bowl resume and it's not even Christmas yet.

Wyoming, a pretty big underdog, beat Fresno State in overtime in the New Mexico Bowl. BYU trounced Oregon State in the Las Vegas Bowl and Utah beat California by 10 in the Poinsettia Bowl on Wednesday.

Air Force will play Houston in Fort Worth in the Armed Forces Bowl to give the MWC a chance to go 4-0 before TCU takes the field against Boise State on Jan. 4.

But since TCU got wins over all three of the MWC teams that won bowl games, it makes the Frogs' look even better.
