CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Saturday's game between No. 21 Boise State and Wyoming brings together two programs heading in opposite directions.
The Broncos (6-1, 3-0 Mountain West) are steadily rising in the polls after six straight wins, while the Cowboys (1-6, 0-3) are reeling from three straight losses and the suspension of head coach Dave Christensen.
Wyoming fined Christensen $50,000 and suspended him this week for his conduct after a 28-27 loss to Air Force on Oct. 13 when he confronted Falcons coach Troy Calhoun on the field.
Assistant head coach Pete Kaligis has replaced Christensen this week.
Boise State coach Chris Petersen says the suspension of Christensen shouldn't make much of a difference for either team.
