Saturday's matchup between Boise State
and Air Force
will match two of the bottom dwellers in the Mountain West Conference, but the separation between the two is considerable. Air Force defeated Boise State 74-59 on the Broncos' home court earlier in the season.
Air Force has struggled to a 1-7 conference record, but Boise State is 0-8 heading into tomorrow's game. The Broncos have only played well against nationally-ranked teams and thus it doesn't look good for Boise State's chances--Air FOrce is 11-10 on the season. One bright spot for Coach Leon Rice--freshman Anthony Drmic is currently third on the all-time freshman scoring average list at Boise State; Drmic is averaging 12.5 points a game.
CBS Sports Network will televise the game beginning at 7 p.m. tomorrow.
Boise State has faced each of the Mountain West teams this season and unfortunately for Coach Leon Rice and the Broncos, every one resulted in a loss. Boise State, which lost to Air Force at home by 15 points, will try to do better on the road when they face the Falcons Saturday night.
