With their BCS bowl chances largely busted by the TCU Horned Frogs last week, the Boise St. Broncos will look to rebound on Saturday evening when they take on the San Diego St. Aztecs. Pretty much the only way the Broncos could retain a chance at a BCS bowl game is to see TCU lose one of their remaining two games and the Houston Cougars must also lose one. But even if TCU loses one game and a tie for the Mountain West occurs, the league would like award TCU the championship for bowl purposes.
Here's what the weekend's schedule looks like:
New Mexico Lobos (1-9, 1-4 MWC) vs. Wyoming Cowboys (6-3, 3-1 MWC), The Mtn., 12:00 p.m. MT: The Lobos won a game! The Lobos won a game! But can they pull off the upset over the Cowboys. It's highly doubtful.
Colorado St. Rams (3-6,1-3 MWC) vs. No. 19 TCU Horned Frogs (8-2, 5-0 MWC), Versus, 1:30 p.m. MT: The Rams might be without starting quarterback Pete Thomas, but freshman Garrett Grayson is expected to play in some capacity. Will the Rams pull off one of the top upsets of the weekend? Visit our StoryStream for live updates throughout the game.
UNLV Rebels (2-7, 1-3 MWC) vs. Air Force Falcons (5-5, 1-4 MWC), The Mtn., 4:00 p.m. MT: The Rebels are coming off a tough loss to New Mexico, one of the few teams worse than they are. Meanwhile, the Falcons are in a must-win situation. They have two games left and need seven wins to be bowl eligible since only one of their victories over two FCS teams counts. Check out our StoryStream for live updates during the day.
No. 10 Boise St. Broncos (8-1, 3-1 MWC) vs. San Diego St. Aztecs (6-3, 2-3 MWC), CBS Sports Network, 6:00 p.m. MT: The Broncos can't let last week's loss get to them. Kellen Moore can pick up his 47th career victory.
