ABOUT AIR FORCE: The Falcons won four of their last five matches headed into MW play before dropping the league opener 2-0 at San Diego State and earning a split with a 2-1 win at New Mexico. Brooke Rittmann's four goals pace the squad.
All-Time Series: Boise State leads 4-3-0. The Broncos dropped the 2014 conference opener at Air Force 2-0. The Falcons have won two of the three meetings played at the Academy.

SHERLE NAMED POW: Freshman Raimee Sherle was named Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week for Sept. 19-25, after netting two game-winning goals to get the Broncos off to a 2-0 start in league play. It was Sherle's first weekly honor and the first for Boise State this season. Sherle scored two highlight-reel goals to lift Boise State to wins against Wyoming and Colorado State. The freshman put away a leaping volley from 18 yards in the 21st minute against the Cowgirls to provide the only goal of the match. The Meridian, Idaho, native is the third Bronco freshman to earn an Offensive Player of the Week award in any conference and the first since Shannon Schueren in 2011 (Mountain West). Shannon Saxton took home the same award in the Western Athletic Conference three times as a freshman in 2007.

PERFECT START: Boise State is 2-0 to start conference play for the first time as a member of the Mountain West. It is the fourth time in program history the Broncos have started league play 2-0 in any conference and the first time since 2010. The only time Boise State has started 3-0 was 2007, in the WAC. That year the Broncos went 5-1-1 in league play, starting 4-0-1 with wins in the first three matches. The only other time the Broncos started league play unbeaten through three matches was 2004 in the WAC, when Boise State started 2-0-1. That team extended its unbeaten streak to four to start conference play at 3-0-1.

COMEBACK WIN: Boise State beat Colorado State (Sept. 25) after falling behind 1-0. It is the second time in Jim Thomas' four seasons as head coach the Broncos have won a match when the opponent scored first. The previous time was Oct. 27, 2013, against New Mexico.Since then, the Broncos' opponents had scored first 26 times with Boise State going 0-22-4 in those matches.

LATE COMEBACK: Boise State's 2-1 comeback win against Colorado State (Sept. 25) came after the Rams scored in the 54th minute to take a 1-0 lead. It is the latest go-ahead goal Boise State has rebounded from to win since Sept. 6, 2009, against Idaho State. The Bengals had taken a 1-0 lead in the 60th minute before the Broncos scored two goals in 52 seconds in the 76th (Erica Parks) and 77th (Shannon Saxton) for the 2-1 win.

LATE COMEBACK PART II: Boise State came back to beat Colorado State (Sept. 25) 2-1 in overtime. The Broncos scored the game-tying goal at the 83:33 mark, the latest equalizer in an eventual win since Sept. 29, 2006, against Sacramento State. In that match Boise State forced overtime with a tying goal at the 83:41 mark before winning 4-3 in double overtime.

SECOND-HALF COMEBACK: Boise State's 2-1 win against Colorado State (Sept. 25) came after the Rams took a lead in the 54th minute. It is the 11th time in program history Boise State won after its opponent scored a go-ahead or lead-extending goal in the second half.
