It was great to watch the young men handle their business Saturday against the Cowboys of Wyoming, and certainly the domino’s fell right for Boise State in the other games that allowed Boise State to jump to #14 in the coach’s poll and 19th in the BCS. No game had a greater impact for Boise State then the MSU OT win in Madison Wisconsin, one more win by Sparty this Saturday should clear the way for Boise State to earn it’s first automatic BCS bid in the school’s history. Saturday also brought bad news as well.
Bryan Douglas, Boise States new super corner who’s come on and shined while Jerrell Gavins worked his way back to 100% went down in the first quarter of Saturday’s game with a season ending ACL tear. As the game opened we all learned that Super Sophomore SS Lee Hightower was suspended from the game for a team rules violation, only to learn after the game this suspension is indefinite and that coach and Mr. Hightower have not spoken in over a week.

BEST OF MAXIM
For the second straight year, Boise State has to adjust to the loss of key players in the secondary of its highly ranked defense.
But this year, the No. 19 Broncos (7-1, 4-0 Mountain West) are confident they have enough senior leaders and seasoned underclassman to avoid the kind of meltdown that contributed to a late-season loss to TCU last year that spoiled an undefeated season...
It seems that those hoping a new team would crash the BCS party will be forced to wait another year.
After Ohio's undefeated run ended with a loss to in-state rival Miami (Ohio) on Saturday, only two teams from non-BCS conferences (or, in Notre Dame's case, no conference) still have a legitimate shot at breaking into the BCS. As it stands right now, it looks as if they might...
Not a lot of room for movement in the coaches poll lots of room in the Harris and BCS polls
With the coaches poll already having Boise State at 14th there are not many head to head match up’s of teams in front of Boise State but there is enough of them to allow Boise State to move up to at least 11th.
So here are the teams of head to head match up’s in front of Boise State...
Pleasant Grove HS DT Nick Terry (Elk Grove, CA) picked up an offer from Boise State last month & will take his third official visit this weekend as he'll be in Boise to watch the Broncos battle San Diego State. The Broncos are a strong contender for Terry's services, but could the upcoming visit put Boise State over the top? He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about that & more.
Nevada Union HS LB Tanner Vallejo (Grass Valley, CA) verbally committed to Boise State over the summer & was back in Boise just a little over a week ago for his official visit as he watched the Broncos defeat Fresno State. So, how was it? And what did he think of the outstanding performance by the Bronco defense? He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about that & more.
Fruitland HS ATH Alec Dhaenens (Fruitland, ID) verbally committed to Boise State back during the spring & suffered an ACL tear just a little over a month ago. The talented ATH had surgery shortly after & is currently undergoing therapy with the opportunity to wear the Blue & Orange as a motivating factor. So, how is rehab going? He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about that & more.
