Boise State, Air Force tune out conference shuffle

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Despite all the speculation and chaos swirling around conference realignment, coaches and players for Boise State and Air Force can at least agree on one thing: Just focus on football.

Boise State linebacker J.C Percy says, "Right now, it doesn't matter where we play next season."

The No. 5 Broncos (6-0, 1-0 MWC) host Air Force on Saturday in a game that months ago was generating buzz as Boise State's first home game as a member of the Mountain West Conference.

Maybe the first-ever meeting between the Broncos and Falcons, a team with a winning tradition and four straight bowl appearances, could touch off a new Rocky Mountain rivalry?

But some of the excitement may have waned amid speculation both schools could bolt for the Big East or another conference next year.
