Last year the Broncos finished second in the Mountain West Conference standings with a 13-5 mark. They had a 23-9 overall record.
They were picked by the media to finish third.
The Broncos, though, are not to be taken lightly. Being taken lightly by the rest of the conference is a good thing.

Head coach Leon Rice has a knack for developing talent that exceeds expectations. Many of his players have moved on to the next level of competition beyond college.
Four players will return who have had starting experience from last season. Justinian Jessup and Alex Hobbs are solid returning starters.
The regular season will start for the Broncos November 10 against Idaho State at the Taco Bell Arena.
