Senior graduate transfer quarterback Montell Cozart, formerly of Kansas, needed a place like Boise State, and the Broncos needed him. He’s thrived, turning adversity into a style that’s exciting and a personality that is magnetic.
The Broncos (8-2, 6-0) have won six straight, tied for the fifth-longest streak in the Football Bowl Subdivision. They have an outside shot at a New Year’s Six bowl, but appear to have the inside track on a Las Vegas Bowl berth.
The Boise State Broncos will honor 14 seniors on Saturday when they take on Air Force: six transferred from other schools and two others were in-state walk-ons. From a coaching change to injuries, it’s been a resilient group.
The Broncos (8-2, 6-0) face a run-heavy team Saturday in Air Force (4-6, 3-3), but they lost a cornerback who began the season in a starting role on Thursday. The school confirmed that sophomore Reid Harrison-Ducros has left the team.
The Boise State Broncos (8-2, 6-0) put their six-game winning streak on the line as they try to end a three-game losing streak against the Air Force Falcons (4-6, 3-3) on Saturday at Albertsons Stadium.
