When Boise State was sitting at 3-2 for the second straight season, the idea of being in position to host the Mountain West Conference title game seemed far-fetched.
Yet the 23rd-ranked Broncos only need wins over New Mexico on Friday night and No. 14 Utah State next week and the conference title game will be decided on the blue turf.
The matchup against Utah State could have major implications for not just the conference but the New Year's Six bowl games. But the game against the Aggies only takes on that magnitude if the Broncos don't stumble in Albuquerque.
