SERIES HISTORY: New Mexico leads 5-0. The Broncos are seeking their first win in the series, which did not begin until Boise State joined the Mountain West prior to the 2011-12 season. Last season's matchup in Boise went to overtime, before New Mexico won 79-74.

PARKING: The West Stadium Lot will be by permit only. Parking in the East Stadium Lot is open to permit holders and available to purchase for $5 on a single-game basis.

BLACK OUT: Boise State will be donning its black jerseys at home for the first time this season and is encouraging fans to join them and wear black to the game Wednesday. The Broncos also held a black out last season, a memorable 78-65 victory over Colorado State (March 2) which included 38 points from Derrick Marks.

DOUBLE-DOUBLE: Ryan Watkins is one of 16 players in Division I averaging a double-double (11.0 points and 10.6 rebounds per game). This is the latest point in a season a Bronco has averaged a double-double since at least the 1985-86 season (record of game-by-game statistics begins with the 1986-87 season). Only three times has a Boise State player averaged double-figure rebounds for an entire season, and only once has it happened since Boise State started competing at Division I (1970-71). Steve Wallace averaged 11.0 rebounds per game in 1971-72. Bill Otey averaged 17.3 in 1968-69 and 13.0 in 1969-70. Each also averaged double-figure scoring in those seasons and are the only Broncos to average a double-double at the end of a season.

GLASS STREAKS: Ryan Watkins recently saw a streak of six-straight double-doubles come to an end (Jan. 14-Feb. 1). It was the longest streak in Boise State history, during the Division I era (1970-71). The streak is tied for the third-longest streak in the country this season. He has a double-double in seven of Boise State's 11 Mountain West games this season.
