It’s Monday and we are back at it! March Madness is upon us, even if the four Mountain West teams took an early tumble. Football news is always plentiful even in the off-season. Through it all, coverage is still coming your way today in the form of the latest news around the internet and original content later today and all of this week.

Aztec players view new stadium.

After two years of waiting, SDSU players will finally play in their brand new stadium this upcoming season, which will coincide with their 100th season. Players got to see the field recently and could not be more excited. Plus, many fans who were not able to travel over 100 miles away will be back in attendance this season. Snapdragon Stadium will open on September 3rd with a game against Arizona.

Defense dominates Bronco Spring Game.

Boise State had their annual scrimmage to conclude spring practices. Spirits were high, as predicted. Based on the way things went, the defense is ahead of the offense at this point. BSU’s defense had three interceptions and three sacks to neutralize quite a few offensive drives. Like every other team, there is a lot of work left to do and a lot of time left to do it before the season.

Padded Cowboys.

Wyoming broke out the pads during their second week of spring practices. Coach Bohl has liked what he’s seen so far. He singled out the run game (to no surprise), the quarterback play (remains to be seen), and the tight end play (which sounds very intriguing). It’s a deep group with a lot of different skill sets and a ton of returning experience.
