In the West Region, the women are No. 4 in what is arguably the most competitive region in the nation, and the men were slotted at No. 3.

FloTrack has the women No. 8 in the country, and the men at No. 19.

MOUNTAIN WEST CHAMPIONSHIPS: Boise State will host the 2016 Mountain West Cross Country Championships at Falcon Crest Golf Club in Kuna, Idaho on Oct. 28.

The entire championship will be broadcast live on the Mountain West Network.

The last time the Broncos hosted a cross country league championship was the 2005 WAC Cross Country Championships at Eagle Island Cross Country Course in Eagle, Idaho. Both the men's and women's teams finished in fourth place with Ty Axtman (fifth) and Rebecca Guyette (10th) leading the way individually for each team.
