The Mountain West kicks off its college football season on Saturday night when the Utah State Aggies head on the road to play the Boise State Broncos. The game will kick off at 7 p.m. ET and will air on FS1. The game can also be streamed using the Fox Sports Go app.
Boise State is coming off a 12-win season, though it will head into its 2020 season unranked. The Broncos return some talented pieces from last season’s roster including running back George Holani, who won the conference’s Freshman of the Year award with 1,014 and seven touchdowns. Quarterback Hank Bachmeier missed some time with injury last year but started in eight games as a true freshman as this young, talented offense continues to grow.
On the other side, Utah State regressed in its first season under head coach Gary Andersen. Following an 11-2 season that led to Matt Wells bolting for Texas Tech, the Aggies dropped to 7-6, finalized with a loss to Kent State in the Frisco Bowl. Quarterback Jordan Love was not as good as he was the year before, but he’s off to the NFL as a first round draft pick and will be replaced by Utah transfer Jason Shelley.
