BSU's win over VT... Was it a tough match up? It sure doesn't seem like it now. Boise State only looks to get better, while Virginia Tech drops off of the map. After losing to James Madison on Sept 11th, Virginia Tech has proven all of the sports analysts and predictions wrong for the 2010 season. Unlike VaTech, the Boise State Broncos are a complete team, and they have been for the past decade really.... 

Unfortunately, VT losing to JMU is going to affect Boise State. Only in college football, does one team losing, have an effect on another team. How weak is that?

Boise State's roster is looking great. I believe Harper and Martin will be the standout running backs this year. Hopefully we'll get to see more second/third stringers step up huge this season. Pettis and Young will gone after this year, along with 17 other seniors. BSU's coaching staff has been great in getting everyone quality playing time over the past several years. It is a bit surprising that Boise State appears to be the only team sticking to that model, and it work so well.

Wyoming may not be ranked in the BCS, but as always, Boise State will not overlook them. Oregon State will more than likely get shut down against Boise State. Unless they become prolific passers... they won't have a shot at getting even a field goal. The Broncos have an all around outstanding defensive line and secondary, and they have the depth to maintain it.

I'm not underestimating OSU. I just know Boise State is that good.
