BOISE, Idaho - The Boise State football team will play its final regular-season road game of the 2014 season this week, traveling to Laramie, Wyo., to square off against Wyoming. The Broncos (8-2, 5-1) and Cowboys (4-6, 2-4) are set to kick off at 8:15 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium, and the game will be nationally televised by ESPN2.

THE SERIES: Boise State is a perfect 8-0 all-time against the Cowboys, including four victories at War Memorial Stadium.

SENIOR SUCCESS: This year's Boise State senior class is looking to become the 13th straight to win 40 games during their careers - or an average of 10 wins per season. At the moment, this year's class already boasts 39 victories.

DOWN, BUT NOT OUT: The Broncos have registered historic comebacks in each of the last two weeks - coming back from down 14 to beat New Mexico (60-49; Nov. 8), and coming back from down 20-0 to beat San Diego State (38-29; Nov. 15). Th e comeback against the Lobos was the largest deficit overcome en route to a victory since also trailing Oregon State by 14 points, Sept. 7, 2006. Th e 20-point defi cit overcome against the Aztecs is the largest in at least the last 30 years.

MW SUCCESS: If Boise State wins its final two games - on the road against Wyoming and at home against Utah State - it will be the Mountain Division representative in the Mountain West Championship Game.

Prior to a 28-14 loss to Air Force (Sept. 27) earlier this season, Boise State had lost just four league games since joining the MW in 2011 - by a combined seven points: TCU in 2011 (36-35); San Diego State in 2012 (21-19); Fresno State (41- 40) and SDSU (34-31, OT) in 2013.

The Broncos' loss at Air Force was just the 10th league loss since 2000. Boise State is 104-10 in league games during that time - the highest winning percentage in the country (.912).

The Broncos' loss to the Falcons was the team's first to an opponent from the Mountain Division since Nov. 1, 1997 (Utah State). Despite not winning the division last season, Boise State went 5-0 against its counterparts, the only conference losses coming to West Division foes Fresno State and San Diego State.

Boise State is still undefeated against three of its five Mountain Division counterparts, going 17-0 against Colorado State (4-0), New Mexico (6-0) and Wyoming (8-0). Utah State, the only division opponent to defeat the Broncos prior to this season, has won just four times in the all-time series, and has lost 11-consecutive games to Boise State, which leads the all-time series 14-4. Th e Broncos are now 2-1 against Air Force.

Additionally, no team in the Mountain West boasts a winning record over Boise State.

17-YEAR WINNING STREAK: At 8-2 this season, Boise State has cemented a winning record for the 17th-consecutive year. The Broncos went 5-6 in 1997, the last season without a winning record and one of only five seasons with a losing record in school history.

ESTABLISHING A LEGACY: The Broncos are the winningest football program in the country since 2000, with an overall record of 163-28 (.853). Oklahoma (160-37; .812), Ohio State (153-36; .810), LSU (150-44; .773) and Texas (146-44; .764) round out the top five.

RED ZONE SCORING: Since falling to Air Force (Sept. 27), a game in which the Broncos scored just twice in four red zone opportunities, Boise State is 31-for-31 inside the 20-yard line. Of those 31 scores, 23 have been touchdowns. On the season, Boise State is 48-of-55 inside the red zone (.873), ranking 34th nationally.

PILING UP YARDS: The Broncos rank 11th nationally in total offense, putting up an average of 508.9 yards per game. Of the yardage, 300.1 yards per game are coming through the air, the 16th-best mark in the country. Boise State ranks 30th in rushing (208.8).

The Broncos gained 676 yards against Colorado State (Sept. 6), 658 yards against New Mexico (Nov. 8) and 637 yards against BYU (Oct. 24) - the fi ft h-, seventh- and 11th-best marks all-time, respectively.
