A week ago, Boise State senior quarterback Brett Rypien spoke hopefully about a "storybook ending" to the No. 25 Broncos' season.

Rypien set Mountain West career records for passing yards and pass completions in Boise State's 24-17 home victory over then-No. 23 Fresno State last Friday, the opener of a three-game stretch critical to the Broncos' chances of repeating as the Mountain West Mountain division champion.
