The Bulldogs (8-4, 7-1 MWC) enter this matchup on a seven-game win streak. They took Oregon State down to the line earlier this season, but ultimately fell to the Beavers as well as USC, UConn, and their championship game opponent. Quarterback Jake Haener has thrown 17 touchdowns and just three interceptions this season.
The Broncos (9-3, 8-0 MWC) had a perfect season in conference play, easily reaching the top of the Mountain division. They beat Fresno State 40-20 in October as part of that perfect season. Fresno State has not lost since then. Haener was out for that game, and his backup threw two interceptions to the Broncos, so we’re looking at an entirely different matchup in this championship.
