Live stream information and how to watch online as the New Mexico Lobos travel to face the Boise State Broncos in Mountain West Conference play.

With fewer than 11 minutes left in the fourth quarter last week against Washington State, Boise State defensive lineman Curtis Weaver grabbed a fumble and returned it 55 yards for a touchdown to increase the Broncos’ lead to 31-10.

Even with star quarterback Brett Rypien on the sidelines with an injury, Boise State was in control over a ranked Pac-12 opponent, and apparently had its first signature win for its 2017 New Year’s Six bowl game résumé in the bag. However, following an unfortunate series of events for the Broncos, including a Montell Cozart interception returned for a touchdown, the Cougars fought their way back to tie the game to force overtime before eventually winning 47-44 in one of the wildest games of the early college football season.

Rypien’s status for next week is still uncertain, meaning Cozart will likely start his first game since transferring from Kansas. Cozart completed 12 of 20 passes for 161 yards and two touchdowns and the costly interception last week, and also gained 72 yards and scored once on the ground.

New Mexico also suffered a close and disappointing loss less than a week ago. The Lobos fell behind rival New Mexico State 30-5 before eventually losing 30-28 when a two-point conversion attempt failed with 1:11 left on the clock.

Senior quarterback Lamar Jordan was pulled in favor of redshirt freshman Tevaka Tuioti, who threw for 151 yards and two touchdowns, but the Lobos struggled to established what was the best rushing attack in the nation a year ago, gaining just 176 yards on the ground against the Aggies. It’s unclear which quarterback will start against the Broncos.

The good news for both Boise State and New Mexico is their losses came at the hands of non-conference opponents, and the Mountain West opener on The Blue in Boise provides a fresh opportunity to get off on the right foot in the league standings.
