Boise State gets commitment from kicker/punter Sean Wale

He was supposed to be recruited as a punter but said that Coach Petersen and Jeff Choate, who visited him yesterday, told him that they wanted him to compete for the kicking job.

Enjoy the highlight clip below.

Kustra wanted Petersen raise now for recruiting purposes

Kustra had let the state board know that he wanted recruits' families to know that Coach Pete has the full support of the university when he's meeting with them. Recruiting opened back up yesterday.

Caesar Palace has Boise State at 50-1 to win national championship next year

West Virginia steamrolls Clemson in Orange Bowl
