FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - The No. 5 Boise State Broncos always expect to be the life of the party. Right now, they just feel like they're a little bit late to the celebration.
Six weeks into the new season, the Broncos (5-0) finally get to play in their inaugural Mountain West Conference game Saturday at Colorado State (3-2, 1-0).
As senior wide receiver Tyler Shoemaker says, "It's about time. Feels like we're almost halfway through the season now."
Oddsmakers have installed the Broncos, formerly of the Western Athletic Conference, as more than four-touchdown favorites.
