Boise State's Skyler Seibold, Scale Igiehon and Tyreque Jones lead their team on to the field for the Mountain West championship against Fresno State, Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, in Boise, Idaho. Fresno State won 19-16.

BOISE, Idaho — Jay Tust, Will Hall and special guests from the KTVB studio looked at all of the major storylines surrounding Saturday's championship matchup between the Boise State Broncos and the Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors.

The game is scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m. and will be televised nationally on ESPN.

As of Friday morning, there were still a lot of seats available for the game. One Boise State fan blog started a hashtag to connect ticket donors with those who may not be able to afford tickets. 

For the first time since joining the Mountain West in 2011, No. 19 Boise State (11-1, 8-0 MWC) went undefeated in conference play during the regular season. The Broncos secured their spot in the championship game by beating Utah State 56-21 on Nov. 23, and followed that win with a 31-24 victory over Colorado State last weekend.

Saturday's title game will be the Broncos' first game at Albertsons Stadium since a 42-9 demolition of New Mexico on Nov. 16.

At his Monday press conference, Boise State coach Bryan Harsin said that, although the Broncos and Warriors have already played once this season, both teams have grown since that first game.
