San Diego State quarterback Quinn Kaehler threw for 288 yards and 2 touchdowns as the Aztecs (7-4, 6-1) defeated the Boise State Broncos (7-4, 5-2) 34-31 in overtime on Saturday night at Quailcom Stadium in San Diego.

Grant Hedrick passed for 202 yards and 2 touchdowns for Boise State but two interceptions late in the game proved coastly for the Broncos.

San Diego State became the first team to beat Boise State in consecutive seasons since Washington State did it in 2000 and 2001.

The Aztecs win over Boise State vaults Utah State (7-4, 6-1) into first place in the Mountain Division with the Aggies hosting Wyoming (5-6, 3-4) next Saturday in Logan, Utah.  A win by Utah State will put them up against undefeated and 15th ranked Fresno State (9-0, 7-0) in the inaugural Mountain West Championship game in Fresno, California on December 17.

The Mountain West Conference has 6 bowl bids and as things stand it looks like Fresno State will represent the MWC in the BCS.  If Utah State can beat Wyoming and make it to the Mountain West Championship game the Aggies will probably play Arizona in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl whether they win or lose to Fresno State in the championship game.

 

MWC BOWL PREDICTIONS:

Utah State vs. Arizona (Las Vegas Bowl)

Colorado State vs. Washington State  (New Mexico Bowl)

Boise State vs. Ball State (Famous Idaho Potato Bowl)

UNLV vs. Middle Tennessee (Hawaii Bowl)

San Diego State vs. Army (Poinsettia Bowl)
