A week ago, Boise States hopes of a Mountain West Conference title got a significant and unlikely boost from UNLV.The Rebels reward for helping out the Broncos? Having to face No. 22 Boise State on Friday night knowing the Broncos have no room for error in their attempt to catch Wyoming in the conferences Mountain Division.So much for saying thanks to the Rebels.They know how to game plan. They seem to have a plan for each opponent, and their guys make plays, Boise State coach Bryan Harsin said. I think its a very tough football team. And offensively, they find ways to move the football. They do have some creative ways of doing it by using their quarterback.Boise State (9-1, 5-1 Mountain West, No. 20 CFP) still does not control its path to the Mountain West championship game even with UNLVs 69-66 triple overtime win over Wyoming last week. The Broncos must win their final two and have Wyoming lose at least once to claim a spot in the title game.Getting there gained more importance this week when the Broncos leaped Western Michigan in the College Football Playoff rankings, putting them in position to claim the Group of Five berth in one of the major New Years bowl games. But the Broncos must win the conference title to gain that berth.We never feel like we control anything until the end of the year. ... Weve got UNLV. Thats it, Harsin said. As simple as that. Weve learned our lesson. We have UNLV. Were going to focus on UNLV. Were trying to play our best game of the season. We feel like we have a little bit of momentum in some areas. A little bit of confidence. Were executing better in some areas.UNLV (4-6, 3-3) needs to win its final two games to become bowl eligible. The win over Wyoming was a huge moment for coach Tony Sanchezs program in overcoming mounting adversity. The Rebels are on their third quarterback of the season and lost all-conference wide receiver Devonte Boyd to a season-ending broken arm.Boyd was the fourth wide receiver to be lost to a season-ending injury.Its kind of a crazy deal. Our whole staff talked about it -- that weve never seen one entire group, Sanchez said. Its one of those deals where you almost have to laugh about it.Other things to watch as the Broncos go for their fifth straight win over the Rebels:RYPIENS SURGE: Over the past two games, Boise State QB Brett Rypien has been nearly perfect. Thats not an exaggeration. Against San Jose State and Hawaii, Rypien was a combined 34 of 43 for 557 yards and seven touchdowns -- nearly as many touchdowns as incompletions.Its an impressive rebound for Rypien after struggling in the Broncos loss at Wyoming.Hes just getting better. Experience for him. He never had that redshirt year, there are things that he is learning as hes gone through this season, Harsin said.NEXT IN LINE: Kurt Palandech was third in line at quarterback for UNLV when the season started. He enters Fridays game as the Mountain West offensive player of the week after setting career highs in completions, yards passing, yards rushing and touchdowns in the upset of Wyoming. Palandech was 20 of 32 for 252 yards and three TDs, and added 157 yards on 16 carries.SPERBECKS FAREWELL: It could be the final game on the blue turf for record-setting Boise State wide receiver Thomas Sperbeck. Hes the school record-holder for yards receiving and one of five receivers in school history with more than 200 receptions.After a quiet game against San Jose State where he had just two catches, Sperbeck rebounded last week against Hawaii with five receptions for 114 yards and two touchdowns, pushing him over the 1,000-yard mark in receiving for the season. Sperbecks nine touchdown catches are tied with Cedrick Wilson for the team lead.RANKED WIN: UNLV is 4-34 all-time against teams ranked in the AP Top 25. The last such victory came eight years ago when the Rebels upset Arizona State. All four of UNLVs wins over AP ranked teams have come on the road.---For more college football: http://collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Joe Sakic Jersey . P.A.

HOUSTON -- It seemed only a matter of time before the odds finally worked against the Astros in their season series against the Angels, who entered Thursday having dropped 11 consecutive games against Houston.In the opener of the penultimate series between the American League West rivals, the Astros (81-72) wasted a second consecutive solid pitching performance from right-hander Mike Fiers. The Angels rode a first-inning home run from Albert Pujols to a 2-0 victory and just their second win over the Astros in 13 meetings this season.The Astros inconsistent starting pitching carried them through a six-game road trip in which they won five times, but the one weak link of late was responsible for that lone loss in Seattle and will take the mound on Friday night looking to even the series against the Angels (67-86).Astros right-hander Doug Fister (12-12, 4.45 ERA) has suffered through a miserable final month, going 0-3 with a 12.42 ERA over four starts. Fister, 3-3 with a 2.72 ERA in his career against the Angels, had been the Astros most consistent starter this season before cratering in September. With Fister lasting at least five innings only once in his last five appearances, an early hook is certainly in play.Ive gone with that model the whole (month of) September, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of having starters on a short leash. I want to get these guys in a position to hand the ball to the bullpen in a good spot. Dougs a pro. Hes been really good for us at times this year. Hes had a couple times where he hasnt been as good. I know recently his performance hasnt been up to his standards.dddddddddddd.Its all hands on deck the entire month of September. Doesnt mean he (Fister) cant last five, six or seven innings.Angels right-hander Alex Meyer (1-3, 5.63 ERA) will make his sixth appearance and fifth start of the season. Acquired from Minnesota on Aug. 1 along with right-hander Ricky Nolasco, who won the series opener with seven shutout innings of work, Meyer earned his first career win on Sunday against the Blue Jays after tossing five scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory.Meyer fanned seven batters in his outing, setting a career high along with his innings pitched. After struggling in two appearances with the Twins to the tune of an 0-1 record and 12.27 ERA, including a May 3 start against the Astros where he surrendered three runs on three hits and three walks over 2 2/3 innings, Meyer is showing signs of settling in with the Angels, his third professional organization.Hopefully more of the same of what hes thrown the last couple outings, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of Meyer, who was selected by the Washington Nationals in the first round (23rd overall) of the 2011 draft. Weve seen a big arm, weve seen a guy that spins the ball well. I think hes finding a consistent arm slot and release point and through all this process of where Alex is right now, hes in the process of finding himself again.Hopefully well continue to see that continued growth moving forward of what hes been doing since hes been here.
