It was a painful night for the Boise State Broncos and their fans.
Never before has a Chris Petersen team been dominated like Saturday night in Seattle. As the game rolled on, it was clear that Washington had come to play. The Huskies beat the Broncos in every area of the game, and they sent Boise State back to Idaho, and back to the drawing board.
Still, you have to think that head coach Chris Petersen will look closely at his team's performance, or lack thereof, and find a way to regroup and be ready for a Mountain West Conference schedule that will be demanding.
Of course, before that starts, the team will have to deal with Tennessee-Martin at home next week. A game that, in hindsight, doesn't seem like such a bad scheduling option after all.
There were only a few bright spots for the Broncos in the 38-6 thumping they took.
With 14 new starters in 2013, it may have been expected that a Washington team with 20 returning starters would dominate. However, that just hasn't been the history of Boise under Petersen.
Let's look at those 14 starters and see how they did Saturday night in Seattle.
