LARAMIE, Wyo. -- — Hank Bachmeier was 19 of 28 for 181 yards, with one touchdown pass and one interception to help Boise State beat Wyoming 17-9 on Saturday night.
The Broncos (5-1, 5-0) will appear in their fourth consecutive Mountain West Conference championship game when they play San Jose State (6-0) on Saturday. With both teams undefeated, the conference will announce the host site and kickoff time on Sunday. Boise State cancelled their regular season matchup against the Spartans due to COVID-19.
It snowed throughout the game and the field was covered with snow as the Boise State defense held the Cowboys (2-4, 2-4) to 146 yards of offense -- their lowest output since 2017.
Andrew Van Buren ran 25 times for 79 yards and scored on a touchdown run that made it 17-6 in the final minute of the third quarter. Khalil Shakir had three catches for 48 yards during the same scoring drive and finished with eight catches for 105 yards.
Xazavian Valladay ran 11 times for 59 yards for Wyoming.
