Boise State is now 5-3 on the season overall and 3-1 in the MWC after a painful 37-20 loss at the hands of of the BYU Cougars.
The Cougars dominated the Broncos in nearly every area of the game Friday night, and it was the first win for BYU over Boise State in four attempts.
The only upside for Boise State is that this wasn't a Mountain West Conference game, and the experience probably helps the Broncos new quarterback Grant Hedrick going into the rest of the MWC schedule.
Still, a loss like this is painful, and lessons or not, it had to sting a bit.
Let's look at what we learned in the Broncos loss to BYU, and let's try to figure out what it might mean for the remainder of their 2013 season.
