Whether you want to blame the officials, the weather, the defense, or FS2, the result will not change. Boise State lost to BYU 31-28. As you may recall, we called a BYU victory a few days ago here.

Long-time and not-so-long-time Bronco fans can remember when Boise State never lost on the Blue; those days appear to be over. The Broncos have no shot at a New Years' Six Bowl, and most fans will admit that the prospects of going to a Fiesta Bowl in the future are long gone.

The Bronco's recent string of victories can be attributed to a very weak Mountain West Conference. As fans saw tonight, those that attended the game, since no one has access to FS2, Boise State could not answer to a team that was as battle-tested as BYU.

The Cougars, who had lost their last four, began the game by punching the Broncos, scoring first. Boise State had not faced a team that could effectively throw the ball down the field as BYU showed tonight.  


Cougar quarterback Jaren Hall owned the Blue by completing 29-of-42 passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns. His leadership allowed the Cougars to maintain control throughout the game.
