Boise State will take on Northwest Christian Saturday, Nov. 5, in the second exhibition game of the year. The regular season begins Saturday, Nov. 12, when the Broncos host Northwest at 1 p.m. MT, in Taco Bell Arena.

20 WINS AGAIN: Boise State hit the 20-win plateau for the fourth year in a row last season and the fifth time in Leon Rice's six years as head coach. It is the first time in school history the Broncos have won 20 games in four consecutive seasons. Head coach Bobby Dye and guard Chris Childs led the Broncos to at least 20 wins in 1986-87, 1987-88 and 1988-89, the only previous three-year run. Since becoming a four-year institution (1968-69), the Broncos have recorded 13 20-win campaigns, including 12 such years since joining Division I (1970-71). Five of them have come under Leon Rice.

BEST IN THE WEST: Boise State is one of just nine teams in the six western conferences to win at least 20 games in each of the last four seasons. The Broncos are joined on the list by Arizona, BYU, Gonzaga, New Mexico State, Oregon, Saint Mary's, San Diego State and UC Irvine.

BEST IN THE WEST PART II: Boise State has amassed 87 wins the last four years, the most in any four-year span in school history. Boise State is one of 20 programs in the six western conferences with at least 80 wins over the last four seasons. The Broncos have 22 wins against the other 19 teams over the same four-year span.

YOUTH MOVEMENT: Boise State has two seniors, one junior, five sophomores and five freshmen on this year's roster. The Broncos were among the oldest teams in the country last season with four redshirt seniors.

NEW FACES: Seven members of the 2016-17 Broncos have never suited up for Boise State, including four freshmen, one junior college transfer and two student-athletes who sat out last season while on the Boise State roster.
