VIVA LAS VEGAS: MWC Announces Championship Game

New, 16 comments

At least the weather will be nice?

NCAA Football: Mountain West Championship-Hawaii at Boise State Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

According to a press release from the Mountain West, 6-0 San Jose State Spartans will “host” the 5-1 Boise State Broncos in the Mountain West Conference Football Championship Game at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. Kickoff is scheduled for Saturday, December 19th, at 2:15PM MST on FOX.

Poor Tim Brando still hasn’t gotten to call his game on the Blue. Next season, my man! We promise!

Meanwhile, we eagerly await Craig “The Hair” Thompson’s press conference explaining how this isn’t actually a neutral site, and why they didn’t follow their own rule provisions. RIGGED!

In reality, though, this is likely the best-case scenario. Since there’s no sports allowed in San Jose, and the weather is gonna suck in Boise, a more or less neutral site with easy travel and accommodation makes a ton of sense. Now we wait and see if the game makes it to kickoff.

Thoughts? Predictions? Flashbacks to the WAC days of yore? Sound off in the comments.
