With TCU leaving its conference at the end of this season, the Horned Frogs yearn to win their third consecutive MWC title and finish with a 24-game win streak against their conference, which now stands at 21.
Boise State is undefeated and looking to finish the season in that fashion.
Both teams know that whoever wins the game on Saturday will have the road paved to win the MWC title, considering the remaining schedule for both teams. The game in Boise is already being called the Mountain West Conference championship or the equivalent of one.
This game was originally scheduled to be played in TCU, where the Horned Frogs have won 24 out of 25 of their last home games. When TCU announced that it was leaving (at first to the Big East), the MWC directors changed it to be played on the blue turf of Boise State.
