Here we go again, Boise State Broncos fans. We are at Week 1 of the new College Football season and your beloved Broncos have a great team, open the season with a great ranking and have an easy schedule. However, they have to win their first game of the season or else their season is ruined.
Yup, it’s a story that the fanbase of Boise State has had to live with for what has seemed like the last two to three years.
Two years ago, a Boise State team had to prove themselves against the Oregon Ducks. Oregon went to the blue turf in Boise State to take on the Broncos. Boise State took everything that Oregon could give them and wound up winning the game 19-8.
Last year, same story with Boise State having to play a BCS school to open the season. Except this time Boise State had to travel to a neutral site at Fed Ex Field to take on Virginia Tech. Still, despite the travel, Boise State took the best shot from Virginia Tech and beat them 33-30.
So tonight at 8 p.m., the Boise State Broncos will travel once again to another neutral site to take on another BCS school. This time the term “neutral” isn’t used since the Broncos will be playing in Atlanta at the Georgia Dome against the South Eastern Conference’s Georgia Bull Dogs.
Once again, the Boise State Broncos' season rests on their first game of the season. Once again, a win still won’t silence the critics' complaint that Boise State doesn’t belong with the rest of the BCS contenders.
