BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Doesn't it seem like forever since the Boise State Broncos played a football game? Well, when BSU takes the field for the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas on Saturday it will be three weeks, so yeah it's been awhile.

As the Broncos get back on their regular game week schedule, the challenge for Coach Pete and crew will be keeping their edge. The Broncos gained confidence during their final three games of the season by scoring more than twice as many points as their opponents, and grabbing a share of the Mountain West Conference Title.

"Yeah, I think everybody always worries about that, everybody going to a bowl game. You know, even the bowl games that were this weekend, they didn't have much time off, but they were probably concerned about it, and fumbling and those type of things that always seem to show up when you have a little bit of time off.

"It's amazing that, how you feel like you can lose a little bit of rhythm, or a lot of rhythm in just a short time," said head coach Chris Petersen.

Everybody's favorite weekend sports guy Troy Oppie will have a first-hand look at Boise State finding that rhythm in Vegas. He'll also bring you all the Bronco bowl game fun that comes with the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.

Kickoff is 1:30 pm (MTN) on Saturday at Sam Boyd Stadium. You can watch the game on ESPN.
