The Boise State Broncos (6-3, 4-1 MWC) traveled to Fort Collins, Colo. Saturday to take on the Colorado State Rams (4-5, 2-2 MWC).
This was a Mountain Division contest between two teams in the middle of a battle for a MWC title game appearance.
With the 42-30 win, the Broncos take sole possession of first place in the Mountain Division with the benefit of owning the tiebreaker against Utah State. The Rams fall to third place with the loss.
This game was a mixed bag for the Broncos. They did some good things, but there are also glaring issues that need attention.
Let's look at what we learned Saturday night in the Broncos' win and try to determine what it all means as Boise State heads into a much-needed bye week.
