Mountaintop View 11-27-23. Broncos, Rebels advance to Championship, Spartans win but lose, Aggies bowling, Gonzales fired.

NCAA Football: Utah State at Connecticut David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Monday and the regular season is over. However, there is still a lot of college football left to be played, with the conference championship and then bowl game. Plus, college basketball is up and running. Through it all, the content keeps going. Check out our original coverage and what we can find from the World Wide Web below.

Broncos take care of Falcons.

Boise State continued its resurgence over the past few weeks, defeating the sputtering Falcons to close out the regular season. The defense played very well, stifling the run game and getting lots of pressure in the backfield. The vaunted Air Force defense could not contain Ashton Jeanty, who amassed 100 on the ground and through the air, piling up the explosive plays. It seems the Broncos have finally found their groove with their two outstanding running backs healthy.

Spartans dominate early, and survive late against Rebels.

The Spartans have been known for quick starts and late fades this season, but they have also been the hottest team in the conference in the second half of the season. This game featured a bit of both. SJSU got off to a terrific start, scoring 10 points before UNLV even took an offensive snap and at one time was up 37-17. However, the Rebels battled back and it looked like things could go south quickly. Instead, San Jose State got the stops when it needed to and held on to the victory, ending the regular season on a six game winning streak.

Aggies need double overtime, but are going bowling.

Utah State are prone to big comebacks both during games and for the season. Under Blake Anderson, they have been notorious for their slow starts and second-half heroics. Although in this game, it was more holding on after giving up a lead, holding off the surging Lobos in double-overtime after letting them hang around all game. However, they also used the second half of the season to get better and use the last few weeks of the season to sneak into a bowl game for the second year in a row. They will not be an easy opponent for whoever they draw.

Lobos moving on from Gonzales.

The Mountain West Championship game is set.
