Crank up the AC/DC because the Boise State Broncos are "Back in Black"
Homecoming and new uniforms—two reasons why the Boise State Broncos should be keyed up for Saturday’s game against the UNLV Rebels. The Rebels are 1-1 in Mountain West Conference play and 1-6 overall. Boise State is 2-0 in the MWC and 5-1 on the season.
Saturday’s home game will be the first time that Boise State has appeared in black uniforms, and the Homecoming event is touted as a “Blackout” across Bronco Nation. But there is a lot more here than merely the fashion sported on the gridiron.
There is a football game that needs to be played.
While UNLV does not have the best of records coming into the matchup, the Rebels do have some weapons and even gave Nevada a run for its money in a MWC tussle before losing 42-37 last Saturday. The Broncos have things to work on offensively while the defense will be called upon for another strong performance.
Here are a few of the keys to Saturday’s game on the blue at Bronco Stadium.
