Before the Broncos even took to the field last night against Air Force, they already knew they had clinched a spot in the Mountain West championship game after Wyoming lost to Fresno State.

Last night on the blue the Broncos had more on their mind against the Falcons.

It was an offensive display. Quarterback Brett Rypien tossed 300 yards and three scores.  Wide receivers A.J. Richardson and Cedrick Wilson each had over 100 yards receiving as Boise state grabbed their seventh straight victory by beating the Falcons 44 to 19.

"We want to finish this year strong especially with air force losing to them the past three years we weren't going to let up at all and that does not mind going into a game," said Quarterback Brett Rypien.

The win also snapped a 3 game losing skid against Air Force.  The Bronco defense once again showed to be a formidable weapon, forcing three turnovers and limiting the Falcons to 181 yards rushing.

"Any game those are going to be huge but we were able to get off the field and allow our offense opportunities to score and when we give our offense opportunities to score they are able to to make things happen," said Safety Kekoa Nawahine.

"Air force has been giving us trouble for last two to three years so for us to go out there and get this win with huddles totals and yards it just shows that we really have bought into it," said, Cornerback Tyler Horton.

The Broncos will finish the regular season against Fresno State this coming Saturday for the first of two meetings. Though the Broncos are set for the title game, they will not look away from the regular season finale.

"We still need to finish that's really the bottom line it's just that it's that mindset we have another game on the schedule and then we figure it out from there.  We aren't thinking about the second we are thinking about the next game how do we get ourselves prepared for that what do we need to do and obviously go back and start studying and how do we get ready for Fresno," said Head Coach Bryan Harsin

The Bulldogs and Broncos have taken the field 18 times with their first meeting back in 1977. Boise State has won twice in a row against the Bulldogs the last two times the teams have faced off.
