After the Broncos dropped the regular season finale to Fresno State, the Broncos will be hosting the conference championship.

If you are interested in some media coverage for the game:

To be sure, there is going to be some anger from Fresno State fans and, possibly, some mixed emotions from Broncos fans.

What is surely going to be a hotly contested point going next year is the way the conference chooses the site for the championship game. As a note, apparently the MWC is the only conference to use the average of the computer rankings to determine its site.

And there are some valid reasons for doing it this way. As KTIK radio show host Mike Prater attests to:

If this scenario were reversed, it would probably be a huge point of contention for Boise State followers. But, nonetheless, this was a process put in place a few years ago and have been following since the MWC became a 12-team league. (But it certainly doesn’t hurt that it swings in Boise State’s favor this time.)

As it stands the Broncos have one more home game to win and an immediate opportunity to fix some things from the first game.
