Boise State's 239-Point Lead Is All But Gone

Through a combination of student-athletes not being entered in their best events and tough luck, Boise State's expected landslide win at the Mountain West Swimming & Diving Championships is no more.

The Broncos were expected to score 261 points today, and based on preliminary heats this morning, are now projected to score just 144.  San Diego State is projected to get 178, and will take the lead after Day 3 of the four-day competition.

Boise State had a slim 7-point lead yesterday, but that has evaporated, and the Aztecs will be your Day Three leader by a minimum of 20 points.  The Broncos were also expected to win tomorrow's competition with 273 projected points to 186 for San Diego State, but given their swimming this week, the Bronco team has to step it up bigtime.  Given the facts through three days as referred to above, San Diego State has cut that 239-point deficit down to 52.  And as we mentioned, the way Boise State is swimming, the Aztecs could grab the lead today, which will give them huge confidence, and then pull away and ruin Boise State's hopes for its third conference championship in four years.
