Somebody has to ask it. I'll do it.

How is it possible that Boise State scored only 42 points against Hawaii?

Seriously, the Broncos out-gained Hawaii by nearly 600 yards, accumulated a school-record 737 of their own, recorded 507 passing yards, scored three times on the ground, and held record-setting Hawaii QB Bryant Moniz to 127 passing yards. They picked up 30 first-downs, went 8-for-12 on third-downs and held Hawaii to 3-for-14.

And they only won by 35 points, aka five less than TCU destroyed previously undefeated Utah by.

Regardless, Boise piled on another win, their 22nd consecutive, aka the nation's longest.

And Kellen Moore established himself as a top-three Heisman nominee with a 500-yard passing day. 

And somehow it was all overshadowed by TCU's 47-7 thumping of the Utes, which established the Horned Frogs as the definitive third team in the BCS standings, way too far ahead of Boise to close the gap unless TCU loses.
