What will this year have in store for the Broncos?

2010 was an exciting year for the Boise State Broncos. They spent the whole year in the media spotlight as the first non-AQ team that could play in a national championship.

Even though Auburn and Oregon went undefeated, Boise State was still just a short field goal away from playing in the next most prestigious bowl game in college football, The Rose Bowl. 

Even though the Broncos didn't go to a BCS bowl, they showed how good they were by beating up on a ranked Utah team in their bowl game.

The Broncos will be back next year, poised to make another BCS run. Mark Schlabach, ESPN writer, has them listed as No. 5 in his very early top 25 for next year.

Boise State returns quite a bit of starters, including Heisman finalist Kellen Moore and running back Doug Martin.

They do lose their top two receivers in Austin Pettis and Titus Young, but will hopefully have those shoes filled at least somewhat by the younger players.

Boise State will have a pretty decent schedule next year in their first year in a new conference. We might see them struggle a little more.

Not because they are tougher teams necessarily, but that they are all new teams that they are not so familiar with as their usual WAC foes.

With that, here is a list of the Broncos schedule from the weakest to the strongest.
