NCAA Football: Mountain West Football Championship-Boise State at UNLV Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Monday, and the championship game has been completed. However, there are still bowl games to be played. 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 top Rebels to become Mountain West Champions.

It was bound to be a storybook ending for whoever won this game, but it was the Broncos who prevailed. Both offenses came out ready and had no issue scoring early. The difference was, while Boise State kept scoring, UNLV was stopped. Then the turnovers came. The Mountain West freshman of the year, Jayden Maiava, played like a freshman in quite a few moments, and the BSU defense took advantage of it, forcing three turnovers on the night. The offense put up 500+ yards of offense, with over 300 on the ground and Taylen Green had perhaps the best passing game of his career. The Boise State Broncos are the 2023 Mountain West champions.

Recruiting changes and photoshoots.

The NCAA continues to revamp the way it does things. This time, change is coming to recruiting. The biggest change is a school can now host a total of 70 recruits for official visits in a given cycle. The previous total was 56. However, the change that is getting the most discussion on social media is that schools no longer have to (or can’t) do photoshoots for unofficial visitors. This is in direct response to coaches and other football staff saying the amount of time photoshoots take is a burden to getting other things done during recruiting visits. The article states more attention can be devoted to having recruits meet with coaches or academic officials.
