for revenge, especially in Boise in front of the home crowd. The Broncos did a lot right in 2013, from scoring better than
37 points per game to rushing for just shy of 200 yards per game. They will be looking to dominate their Mountain West opponents
in every category in 2014, and this matchup with the Wolf Pack will be one step along their journey to the top.

State Bulldogs, who make their visit to Boise on October 18th. The Broncos were the best passing team in the NCAA in 2013,
but are returning to MWC play in 2014 without their star quarterback, Derek Carr, who will be wearing an NFL jersey in 2014.
The Broncos and the Bulldogs will be sure to bring their best to "The Blue" in Boise, knowing that this game in October will
be a huge boost for the winner. Don't miss the chance to see two of the marquee teams in the Mountain West face off in this
epic clash. There are plenty of other great matchups to check out in 2014 as well.

Boise State Broncos
Boise State is a top football program, and most top football programs have a spectacular fan base.
The Broncos are certainly no exception in that department, as they've got a group of loyal fans that will amaze you with their
dedication to the team. As with all successful sports programs, the Boise State Broncos have quite a few rivals who make the
sports so thrilling for the players and fans. The biggest rival for the Broncos were their in-state rivals the University
of Idaho Vandals, in a battle for what is known as the Governor's Trophy. The rivals competed in conference games as members
of the Big Sky Conference, Big West Conference and Western Athletic Conference, but this rivalry that has spanned 40 games
ended in 2010 when the Broncos made their move to the Mountain West Conference. With the absence of the Governor's Trophy,
the Broncos clashes with the Nevada Wolfpack have become quite the rivalry. Like the rivalry with Idaho, the games against
the Wolfpack have spanned many difference conferences, and now as members of the Mountain West Conference, these two teams
clash in games that mean quite a bit.
