Wake up with a potential Mountain West Championship game preview on Black Friday as the Boise State Broncos head down to Southern California to meet the San Diego State Aztecs. The game will kick off at 12 p.m. ET on CBS.
San Diego State (10-1, 6-1 MWC) will have the opportunity to clinch the West division title and host the Mountain West Conference Championship Game next Saturday with a win here. The Aztecs successfully clinched a 10-win season last week with a 28-20 victory over lowly UNLV. The SDSU defense came away with two interceptions in the ballgame while quarterback Lucas Johnson threw three touchdowns in the win.
Boise State (7-4, 5-2 MWC) is trying to keep its conference title hopes alive and it would clinch a Mountain division title with a win and an Air Force loss. The Broncos were last seen shutting out New Mexico 37-0 last Saturday in a game where the Lobos were held to just 101 yards of total offense.

This game is going to kick off at 9 a.m. local time on the west coast, so there’s going to be body clock issues with two teams who used to playing late at night. Couple that with them being two of the more under-friendly teams in the conference and you could see how this would be a contest that will be slow to get out of the gate.
44 is pretty low, but still hit the under hits here.
