Morning paper: Boise State football 10/27

The Broncos' winning on Friday night against San Jose State was about the only thing that went according to plan for the WAC this weekend. We'll touch on these results later today, but there were upsets galore as Idaho topped NMSU, Nevada lost to Hawaii, and Fresno needed a last-second field goal to beat Utah State. Is it possible that the gap between Boise State and the rest of the conference is actually growing?

Here are some links about Friday's game. We'll be back with game balls and such in a bit.
