Drama-filled storylines in Saturday's game
Saturday will be the final home game for 23 Boise State seniors (barring a miraculous, unwanted Famous Idaho Potato Bowl berth). Come Saturday evening, there will be no more D.J. Harper on the blue. No more Jamar Taylor or Jerrell Gavins or J.C. Percy or Joe Kellogg or Insert Your Favorite Senior Here. Good choice picking Colorado State for a going away party. There will be cake.
New home winning streak!
The last time Boise State played on the blue turf, they lost - unfortunately and annoyingly to the San Diego State Aztecs. The bad news: It might have cost the Broncos a BCS bowl. The good news: Every winning streak has to start somewhere. This one for the Broncos might start Saturday and will hopefully continue long into the Big East future.
It's Colorado State. I'm not sure what else there is to say.
