Boise State got their revenge over Nevada on Saturday afternoon in their 30-10 win at The Blue, though if you were to ask Coach Petersen about it he would have claimed casually that it was just another game. Well, now that the Broncos are once again victorious over Nevada, perhaps we can stop being inundated with footage of Brotzman missing those two field goals last year. I doubt it.
Anyway, this victory was not without some concerns as, quite frankly, the Bronco offense looked incredibly sloppy. Uncharacteristic mistakes were made by Kellen Moore and a late Nevada scoring drive made the score look closer than it really was.
Unfortunately, the Broncos paid for that in the polls, dropping from four to five in the AP and from five to six in the Coaches' Poll. Though there were some bright spots and definite improvements on defense and with the running game, it didn't make up for what was lacking in other areas. With a myriad of undefeated teams still out there, Boise State must play at its highest level to maintain its standing. Sadly, they did not in this game.
