Boise State has traditionally had a strong presence in the Mountain West Division, consistantly winning titles in Rocket League, Overwatch, and Valorant. This record always puts high expections on the current year’s varsity team. For the 2024 championships, Boise State first fought New Mexico on Icebox, and won the first round 13-6. Things became a bit more competative during the second round on Bind. Boise State won that round, but by a closer margin of 13-8. Nevertheless, Boise State scored a clear and decisive victory that, along with the Overwatch team’s win, secured the school’s position as the kings of the Mountain West Division.

The Valorant team still has a little ways to go before they finish the spring semester. They are scheduld to fly out to Arlington TX for the 2024 CECC championship. Those interested in viewing the Bronco’s Mountain West championship matches can find them on Boise State Esports Youtube page.
