There may not be a more polarizing team in all of college football than the Boise State Broncos.
They burst onto the national college football scene in 2007 after an epic win against Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl, and their legitimacy has been debated ever since.
The Broncos played in the WAC prior to their move to the Mountain West, which starts this year, and the WAC was incredibly weak. Yet they kept beating the nation’s best all across the country.
Kellen Moore is one of the nation’s best and most efficient quarterbacks and is on pace to shatter multiple NCAA records, including most touchdowns and most wins.
Running back Doug Martin is one of the nation’s best, Nate Potter is projected as one of the top offensive linemen to be taken in the NFL draft and Shea McClellin and Billy Winn are All-American candidates on the defensive line.
Head coach Chris Petersen is a great talent evaluator and gets the best out of everyone who comes through the program.
This season, the Broncos went on the road to Georgia and thoroughly beat the Bulldogs and are now squarely in the national title race, even though they lost top receivers Austin Pettis and Titus Young as well as their offensive coordinator from last year. They came close last year, but 2011 could be Boise State’s year.
