Were it not for its demise, it’d once again be time for the “Days Without An Arrest” ticker to shine.
The latest college football player with an off-field dustup is Boise State’s Robert Mahone, with KTIK‘s Mike Prater reporting that the running back was arrested earlier this week for misdemeanor failure to appear. The arrest stemmed from a speeding ticket that went unpaid.
That ticket has since been taken care of, and it’s not expected to impact Mahone’s availability for this weekend’s key Mountain West Conference matchup with Utah State.
A junior, Mahone is second on the Broncos with 411 yards rushing and is tied for the team lead with five rushing touchdowns. He’s also caught seven passes for another 62 yards coming out of the backfield.
At a perfect 6-0, Boise State leads the MWC Mountain division by one game over USU (5-1) and Air Force (5-1). Boise is ranked 20th in the most recent College Football Playoff rankings, third behind No. 18 Memphis and No. 19 Cincinnati among Group of Five schools.
