In Mountain West football this weekend Boise State is idle but Bronco fans will have a team to rout for Saturday when Utah State travels to Air Force.

The Broncos left themselves little wiggle room in the battle for a New Years Six Bowl losing at BYU but they could get some spacing in the Mountain West "West Division" race if the Falcons beat the Aggies.

Boise State and Utah State are 3-0 in league play and Air Force is 3-1 coming off a 56-26 win over Hawaii on the Island. Utah State beat Nevada Saturday in Logan 36-10.

The Broncos already have a win over Air Force but still have to play at Utah State so if Air Force can beat the Aggies in Colorado Springs.Saturday the Broncos will head to San Jose State a week from Saturday as the only unbeaten team in the division.

Boise State has a grueling November schedule with games against San Jose State, Wyoming, Utah State, Nevada and Colorado State. the San Jose State, Utah State and Colorado State games are all on the road.

Meantime, coming up Saturday in Mountain West play: Nevada is at Wyoming, Hawaii at New Mexico, San Diego State at UNLV and Colorado State at Fresno State.
