The Boise State football team has endured a long grueling season with many injuries, a pair of early losses, however, after winning six games, BSU has put themselves back into position to host the Mountain West Championship game.

Standing in their way is the Utah State Aggies who are 10-1 on the season, the winner of the game on Saturday will host the conference championship.

"All you got to do is pop on the tape and look at their personnel if you look at anything beyond that you are crazy," said Coach Bryan Harsin. "They are a great football team that is coming in and they’re hot, we better be playing our best football."

It's part of a week that features high ranking teams coming into the city of trees, Utah State is ranked 14th in the country and the BSU women's basketball team hosts Louisville who's ranked 5th in the nation.

That should be a good barometer for the Broncos who face one of the elite programs in the country, Louisville knocked BSU out of the NCAA tournament last year.

While basketball season is just getting started the two Bronco programs both share the fact that they are defending Mountain West champions.

It will also be senior night for the football team when they host Utah State on Saturday night with kickoff happening at 8:15.
