Press Sets High Expectations For Boise State
There are few things that shake this city more than Boise State Football. This coming fall, the expectations are high and the energy is bursting at the seams.
It's been a while since Boise State has been the "top underdog" in terms of non-power 5 conference teams and there seems to be one common theme among sports publications and writers...this is Boise State's year.
No, these are't polls coming out way too early-- it's spring practice time and the rosters across the country are set. Sports professionals really do see the potential in this Bronco's squad. A common compliment is experience. Boise State is returning a starting quarterback as well as starters from nearly every other position, too. That kind of experience sets the table well for a hungry Boise State team that ended last season on a high note after dominating the Oregon Ducks.
The USA Today ranks Boise State the highest, at #14 pre-season while Sporting News has them the lowest, at #25.
Only time will tell if this season could mean a major bowl game, or more: the College Football Playoff.
