Boise State looks to keep its Mountain West title hopes alive against Air Force Friday

BOISE, Idaho (KIFI) - Despite a late season coaching change, the Boise State Broncos once again find themselves in position to compete for a Mountain West championship in the final week of the regular season when the Broncos host the Air Force Falcons Friday.

It is a must-win game for both Boise State and Air Force to keep their chances of making the Mountain West title game alive.

Then, if UNLV wins Saturday against San Jose State, either the Broncos or Falcons face the Rebels in Las Vegas for the championship next week.

However, if the Spartans win that game, it will be a three-way tie between UNLV, San Jose State, and the winner of the Boise State/Air Force game with computer rankings determining which two teams make the title game.

Boise State earned bowl eligibility for the 26th straight season last week with a dominating 45-10 win at Utah State, so the Broncos will play at least one more game if they do not make the conference championship.

Kickoff Friday at Albertsons Stadium is at 2:00 p.m., and we will have coverage of this one from Boise on Sports Line.
