FINAL

Boise State 35, Georgia 21

One of only two games that showcases two nationally ranked teams in the opening week of the 2011 college football season, as No. 5 Boise State rolls into the Georgia Dome to face the 19th ranked Georgia Bulldogs in the Chick-fil-A kick-off game.  Kick-off is 8:00 PM EDT on ESPN.

The last time the two teams faced off it was 2005 and both teams couldn't be more different.  Then: Georgia won the SEC championship and went on to play in the Sugar Bowl.  Now: Georgia is coming off a losing season with a very young team. Then: Boise State was the young team and they had not seen the success that currently shines on them. Now: Boise State has a Heisman candidate quarterback, a nationally ranked defense, and two time Paul "Bear" Bryant award winning coach Chris Petersen.

We will see a pair of the country's best quarterbacks; one in the final season of an extremely prestigious college career, the other starting off what could be an illustrious run as a future Heisman candidate. Kellen Moore, in his 4 year as the Bronco starter returns with ungodly career numbers; 10,876 passing yards, 99 TD's to only 19 interceptions, and a QB rating of 166.7 all leading to a 38-2 record that is only 8 away from the NCAA record.

Meanwhile the Bulldogs bring Freshman All-American Aaron Murray under center.  Murray had a completion percentage of 61.8% and threw for 2,851 yards, 24 touchdowns and only 8 interceptions. He also had a quarterback rating of 162.72.

Look for Boise State to have a balanced attack as Doug Martin is a very solid running back and the Boise State offense has one of the best lines in the country. On defense they will focus on disrupting Aaron Murray, though this may be hard as the Georgia offensive line is significantly larger then Boise State's defense. 

Georgia will also rely on the run a bit more this year due to the loss of A.J. Green.  Defensively the Bulldogs will attempt to limit Moore's down field targets and flush him from the pocket in order to control big plays.  However, Boise State has many weapons on offense so this may be easier said then done. 

So let's kick off the 2011 season right in what sure to be not your average Dawg and Pony show down in Atlanta.
