BOISE, Idaho — Throughout the last 25 years, when the calendar turns from October to November, the Boise State Broncos are typically in the hunt for a conference title. Heading into this season, the Broncos had gone to four-straight Mountain West Conference Championship games but the 2021 football season is truly unlike any other Boise State has had this century.
Following their bye week, the Broncos are 3-4 this season and are 1-2 in conference play after Boise State lost 17-24 to the Air Force Falcons on The Blue. It's the first time since 1996 that the Broncos have lost three straight games at home. In the 1996 season, the Broncos had a five-game losing streak at home.
As Avalos and his staff look to rebound from the Broncos' loss to Air Force before the bye week, the first-year head coach held his weekly press conference at 1 p.m. MT Monday.
