Final Score: Boise State 56, ASU 24

The No. 7 Boise State Broncos and Arizona State Sun Devils will be going at each other at the MAACO Bowl in Las Vegas.

The Broncos are coming in on an 11-1 season, and they will be continuing to represent the Mountain West Conference following a victory by the TCU Horned Frogs in last night's game. The Horned Frogs gave the Broncos their only loss on the year, which perhaps cost the Broncos their chance at a BCS bid and an undefeated season.

The biggest story line here is that this will be quarterback Kellen Moore's last game as a Bronco. With Matt Barkley announcing today that he will not be entering the NFL draft, Moore will be looked upon to be in better shape come next year's draft.

This will be a big game for the Sun Devils, as they will be looking to redeem themselves. They started out the season going 5-1, but in the end they collapsed with the easy part of their schedule. They ended the year at 6-6, and they threw their Pac-12 title game hopes out the window.

This will be Dennis Erickson's last game as the Sun Devils coach, so it will remain to be seen if he can pull out one last victory while in charge.

The game will get underway at 8 p.m. ET and will be on ESPN/ESPN.
