Change in plans: Lobos will host Boise State, not San Diego State, on Saturday

One game gone. One game added.
Saturday’s scheduled San Diego State game in the Pit has been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns on the Aztecs’ roster — the second Lobos home game postponed in the first three weeks against one of the league’s top two ranked team due to COVID.
The Lobos also lost out on hosting the then undefeated and 20th-ranked Colorado State Rams on Dec. 28.
Colorado State and SDSU are the only two Mountain West teams receiving votes this week in the Associated Press Top 25 poll.
But, unlike with the CSU postponement, the Lobos were able to quickly replace the missed home game this go around.
The Mountain West on Tuesday announced that Boise State, which was scheduled to be off on Saturday, will instead fly to Albuquerque to play the Lobos in the Pit at 3:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast on FS1 and air as usual on 770 AM/96.3 FM.
The Broncos were scheduled to play in Albuquerque on Feb. 8. Season ticket holders can get into Saturday’s game using that ticket dated Feb. 8, according to UNM. Tickets dated Jan. 15 for San Diego State will be good for when the Aztecs game is rescheduled to be played in the Pit or can be exchanged in the UNM Ticket Office for Saturday’s newly scheduled game.
Boise State (10-4, 1-0 Mountain West) has been on its own COVID pause since a Dec. 28 home win over Fresno State. The Broncos play at Nevada on Wednesday.
If the SDSU at UNM game cannot be rescheduled, it will be declared a no contest, the Mountain West Conference says.
