Boise State travels to Laramie this week with an opportunity to return to the Mountain West Championship Game for the fifth time in six years. A win over Wyoming Saturday gives the Broncos the 2022 Mountain Division title. 

The Cowboys have been nothing short of impressive this fall. Wyoming was picked to finish second-to-last in the division in July, but now rides into Saturday's matchup with just one loss in conference play. 

Head coach Andy Avalos said that in film review and on-field practice since the Nevada game, the Broncos learned some things "that will help us moving forward," and added that preparing for Wyoming will "require us to be our best, have our best week of practice."

Although the records and stakes call for an evenly-matched contest in War Memorial Stadium, Boise State is 15-1 all-time against Wyoming, including five-straight wins dating back to October 2016. 

Kickoff is scheduled for 5 p.m. MT Saturday in Laramie. The Broncos-Cowboys battle will be televised on CBS Sports Network. For more information on ways to watch, series history and matchup stats, scroll down.

After suffering its first loss since Sept. 23 against BYU, Boise State bounced back in a big way last Saturday at Nevada, dominating the Wolf Pack 41-3 in a freezing environment. 

The Broncos will once again be tested in tough weather conditions in Wyoming, with Saturday's forecast in Laramie showing a low of 10 degrees, with wind gusts up to 23 mph and an AccuWeather 'RealFeel' of -5 degrees at night.
