After Boise State shockingly lost to UTEP, Andy Avalos fired his offensive coordinator and replaced him with Dirk Koetter. The former college and NFL head coach did the Broncos a solid this fall and called plays while Avalos looks for a permanent replacement. Koetter has seen a lot of improvement in freshman quarterback Taylen Green and hopes to end this unique season on a high note.
Has the demise of college football attendance in the Mountain West been exaggerated? Chris Murray digs into the numbers.
