Boise State limps into Week 2 after suffering its worst loss under head coach Chris Petersen. The 38-6 drubbing by the Washington Huskies has most of Bronco Nation befuddled and discouraged.

When looking at the Broncos 2013 schedule it appeared as if Week 2 wouldn't be a big challenge for Boise State, as it would pit them against Tennessee-Martin, an FCS school out of the Ohio Valley Conference.

However, after the way the Broncos looked in Week 1, there are doubts going into this contest.

Not only that, but San Diego State, Kansas State, Oregon State, Connecticut and Iowa State were all upset in the first week of the college football season by teams from the FCS.

Maybe it's all the extra practice teams in the FCS get from the playoffs at the end of their seasons?

Whatever the reason, Boise better be on upset alert, and they better come ready to play. San Diego State was absolutely thrashed by Eastern Illinois last week 40-19.

The Panthers ran up 533 yards of offense on the Aztecs, and dominated the game from the second quarter on. Oh, by the way, Eastern Illinois is out of the same conference Tennessee-Martin is.

Let's look closely at this contest to try to determine what Boise State must do to rebound from such a stinging loss, and how they can avoid a second straight week of disappointment.
