Bronco Men Will Battle Utah State for WAC Indoor Track Crown

In the early part of the season, the Boise State men's indoor track team is neck-and-neck with Utah State in the battle for projected points in the upcoming WAC Indoor Championships.  Utah State is currently projected at 146 to 144 for Boise State, 110 for Louisiana Tech and 81 for Idaho.

The women have made good strides in recent years and it would be nice to see the Bronco women continue to push their way to the top.  Currently, perennial champion Tech is favored with 149 points to 106 for Utah State, 88 for surprising New Mexico State, Boise State and Nevada have 79 projected points each, with Idaho set for 38 and Hawai'i 35.

Boise State will Host TCU, play SD State on the Road in 2011

Speculation has been confirmed.  TCU will visit Boise State this fall, according to Mountain West Conference sources.  Boise State will play San Diego State on the road, and then host the Aztecs in 2012.

Boise State has played TCU three times, winning two of them.  Two of them (the 2009 Poinsettia Bowl and the 2010 Fiesta Bowl) were played at neutral sites, while the 2003 Fort Worth Bowl was played on TCU's home field.  The two powerhouses have never played in Boise.
