The Blue Turf:
Don’t look now folks but this 2012 team is well on its way to getting the school’s first every automatic BCS bid and to do so even with a loss on it recorded. With a huge jump in point in the coaches poll this week; 271 & 22nd ranking in week 8 to 401 and 18th in Week 9. Football coaches across the country gave Boise State a major shout out and a timely sling shot up the ladder in the polls. Add in the Harris Poll with an even larger jump in points and ranking spots from 23rd and 488 points to 19th and 762 points give us a Human poll average of 18.5% I understand the putters gutted us today so we didn’t see a jump in the BCS like we did in the human polls, but fret not 8 out of 10 of the teams between us and the top 10 will lose between now and the end of the season and the only teams behind us we need concern ourselves with is the Meatchickens and Wisconsin both of which will suffer at the very least a single loss between now then then.

Consider me a fan of those. Boise State's wearing them as part of their "Blackout Day" at home against UNLV today.

I’ve never been a huge fan of the Nike Pro Combat uniforms or the crazyness that Oregon dishes out week to week. However these latest Boise State matte black helmets are beyond awesome and kind of make up for the over hype that the Broncos seem to get on a yearly basis.

The three remaining BCS Busters took different approaches to boosting their stock this weekend, with Notre Dame barely sneaking by BYU, Boise State dominating UNLV and Ohio not playing at all. As a result, No. 21 Boise State and No. 24 Ohio improved their standings, while Notre Dame maintained the status quo at No. 5.
For the Irish going forward, the focus will be on beating two...
Bingham HS LB Durrant Miles (South Jordan, UT) verbally committed to Boise State over the summer & was back in Boise last weekend for his official visit. The talented LB says he has attended other college football games, but nothing could compare to the atmosphere at Bronco Stadium last weekend. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about his official visit to The Blue.
