Boise State's 5 Strikes: San Jose State Shut Out 48-0 As Broncos Keep Rolling

Chris Petersen and the Boise State Broncos are doing their very best to make their last dance through the WAC schedule look like a cake-walk.

Another opponent tried to tame the Broncos and went home without scoring a single point! Or gaining a positive number in the rushing yard department! 

And just like that, the Broncos extended their winning streak to 20 games, the longest in Division I.

And just like the previous week, and the week before that, and even the week before that, the men in blue (or white this time) were firing on all cylinders.

322 passing yards and two touchdowns.

213 rushing yards and four touchdowns.

And the defense played its part too, holding San Jose State to a season-low 80 total yards of offense, including -12 on the ground, and getting a pick-six from linebacker Aaron Tevis, that gave the Broncos a 34-0 lead just before halftime.

And don't forget about the special teams play. Punt return duo Chris Potter and Josh Borgman combined for 100 yards on seven punt returns. And even seldom-used (except for on kick-offs these days) Trevor Harman got in on the act, kicking an extra-point and taking over punting duties from full-time kicker/punter Kyle Brotzman.

But, there was much more to be gleaned from the victory than just all of those facts above. And more intrigue was added to the Broncos situation/plight when the first BCS standings were announced late Sunday night.

So, let's get into Boise State's five strikes!
