Joe Tessitore should be very pleased with this

Tessitore is ESPN's resident Friday night voice .. unfortunately. He and partner-in-yuks Rod Gilmore get the Broncos for the final three weeks of the regular season thanks to a string of Friday night contests against Idaho, Fresno, and Nevada. Maybe Tessitore will figure out that Kellen Moore is left-handed by the Nevada game. Or maybe not. He has a lot on his plate what with that fantasy team he keeps talking about.

Boise State will play into December once again

Thanks to a Labor Day Monday showdown with VaTech and a Tuesday night game Louisiana Tech, the Broncos have two sort-of-byes during the season, meaning they will be playing a December game for the second year in a row. Not only that, but a December game that probably won't matter at all. Who do you want it to be against?

A Tuesday night game!

Imagine that!

Thoughts?

Are you happy that ESPN and the WAC chose a rematch of Boise State and Nevada for its de facto WAC championship? Surprised that the Worldwide Leader would want to send a crew to Moscow again? A little bit guilty that Boise State gets so much attention? Share your thoughts in the comments.
