Boise State football to host conference championship, but first, Utah State this week

The Broncos have clinched the Mountain Division with one regular-season game to go. They'll host Utah State Friday morning.

BOISE, Idaho — Editor's note: The news conference has concluded. The video above is a recording of the entire event.

The Boise State University football team has one more regular-season game to go before the Broncos play for the Mountain West championship.

The Broncos clinched the Mountain Division title, and a berth in the championship game, with a 20-17 victory at Wyoming last Saturday, Nov. 19. With the best record in the MW conference, Boise State (8-3 overall; 7-0 in MW) will host the conference championship on Dec. 3 against the West division champion Fresno State Bulldogs.

First things first: Boise State will close out the regular season Friday, Nov. 25, when the Utah State Aggies (6-5 overall; 5-2 in MW) come to town. Game time is scheduled for 10 a.m. It will be televised by CBS on local CBS-affiliated stations around the country.

"We're going to need to be very diligent this week with the short week and the early game on Friday morning," said Head Coach Andy Avalos Monday afternoon in a news conference livestreamed on KTVB.COM and the KTVB YouTube channel. "It's good to be able to have an early game, because it puts that sense of urgency into you that we've got to use every day and be very efficient."

Boise State University is on Thanksgiving break all week, but practice continues for players and coaches.
