Top storylines for college football Week 11

16Friday night Mountain West showdown

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Fresno State has been flying largely under the radar because it plays in the Mountain West and hasn’t gotten much air time, but these Bulldogs have plenty of bite.

Featuring the nation’s second-best scoring defense and a potent offense led by quarterback Marcus McMaryion, Fresno State has rocketed up the rankings on the back of seven straight wins. A trip to Boise is the last huge test for the Bulldogs before the end of the regular season. Many a team has struggled to conquer the blue field at Albertsons Stadium, and of course the Broncos are pretty good, too.

It’s going to be a ton of fun to watch McMaryion duke it out with Brett Rypien on Friday night as ESPN2 broadcasts this Mountain West showdown starting at 10:15 p.m. ET.
