Who will stop the rain? Broncos make final preparations

The rain contiues to fall here in Las Vegas.  It's an amount of rain that I haven't seen since growing up in the Chicago area where rain for a few days is nothing out of the ordinary.  The constant rainfall here is something many locals have told me they haven't seen in at least five years. 

At this point in time the weather both in Boise and in Las Vegas has seemed to have an affect on the arrival of Bronco Nation.  As we reported Monday night, blue and orange was really only seen here and there, but as the evening went on, our crew here in Vegas has gradually seen more and more Bronco fans. 

We even caught up with the BSU band on Tuesday night after they arrived and they told us the roads certainly were not good, but they weren't totally awful either. 

I fully expect many more Bronco fans to arrive on Tuesday both by plane and by car.  I chatted with BSU receiver Tyler Shoemaker who said many of his family members were flying down.

The rain is supposed to stop some time on Wednesday night.  Whether it will be before, after or during the game is still a mystery. 

The Broncos will have their final walk-thru at Sam Boyd Stadium around 5 p.m. mountain time. 

So as crazy as it sounds, there are less than 48 hours left in this season, but it's certain to end in wonderful fashion. 

According to Las Vegas odds makers BSU is a 17 point favorite to beat Utah, but I think it's safe to say Boise State is not underestimating its opponent.
