When I first heard the BSU Broncos were favored to beat UConn by 31 points I laughed.  Don't get me wrong.  I'm a die hard Bronco fan and yes, I expected them to win and maybe even by a lot but by 31?  Come on.  Well, they won by 55.  And with that win, they accomplished a few things.


The Broncos will have their first real test of the season next week against Oklahoma State who has also been whacking their competition with a 58-17 win over Missouri State and a 55-13 win over South Alabama.  Oklahoma State is also ranked in the Top 25 coming in at #24 on most polls.  And they also have home field advantage.

I see all of this as 'OPPORTUNITY'.  Yeah, that's right.  This will be the first win this season that'll show the entire country that the Boise State Broncos are 'The Real Deal'.  Troy had a great season last year going 11-2 with a Bowl win and UConn is most likely not that good but Oklahoma State?  They're showing they have a solid squad and they're dominating.
