Saturday night’s Mountain West conference championship game between the No. 25 Fresno State Bulldogs and the No. 22 Boise State Broncos might have some of the craziest visuals in college football this year. The game is being played in heavy snow in Boise, and that’s led to a lot of unusual moments, such as this 44-yard field goal from Fresno State kicker Asa Fuller:
Fuller, a redshirt freshman from Fountain Valley, California (in Orange County), probably hasn’t kicked in much heavy snow before, but he certainly made this one count. And that’s remarkable, considering that he was just 11 of 19 on field goals this year and 52 for 57 on extra points. But he made this one count. Other plays were more affected by the snow, though, including big drops for both teams:
Here’s a look at the attempts to clear the yard lines:
And even before the snow started coming down heavily, there were some zany plays, including this failed hurdle attempt:

While this snow probably isn’t all that pleasant for the fans in attendance, including one who flew in from Australia, it does make for some fun watching on TV. Fresno State led 10-7 at the half; we’ll see how the rest of this plays out.
