There was a whole lot more on the line Saturday night than our Broncos holding on to that #1 spot in the Mountain West Conference.  For coach Harsin it was personal.

By securing eight wins this season, his contract automatically renewed, and he's now receiving $9.25 million for his contract which runs through 2022. That's $1.89 million a year, or almost $5,200 a day, every day, for the next five years.

Harsin's taken a lot of heat replacing a legendary coach and joining a legendary team who's had a lot of success in the past.  Harsin's record as of now is 39-11 and the BSU Broncos are currently 8-2 and are the favorites to host the Mountain West Conference game here at Albertson's Stadium.

The Broncos are also on the verge of cracking the Top 25 national rankings and could conceivably end this year with one of their best records ever.
