Which is cool and fun, and a nice flashback to that first Fiesta Bowl win, but I really wish the national media would give as much exposure to the fact that Boise State has just become a very well-coached, disciplined powerhouse. BSU doesn’t need trick plays to win. From a functional standpoint, the trick plays on that first drive are very smart by our coaching staff in that it puts every defense they play the rest of the year on guard, but it became a national headline I saw all over the internet yesterday. No press is bad press, but still—I’d quite rather people just got to see highlights of Boise State going head up and thoroughly beating a PAC-12 team on the road. That’s just my two cents though. Opinions may vary.
...and then some. 208 rushing yards and 4 total scores for the McWeapon, punctuated by a 70 yard TD run just after he’d had a very nice 25 yarder called back on a penalty. An absolutely dominant day on which McNichols averaged 7.2 yards per carry.

Boise State apparently has room for TWO phenoms on the women’s cross-country team, as true sophomore Brenna Peloquin won the prestigious Griak Invitational in Minnesota and helped the Bronco women to a 4th place team finish yesterday. Top Boise State runner Allie Ostrander did not race, but it didn’t matter...Peloquin won the individual race by 11 seconds over the defending Big Ten XC champ Erin Finn. Yowza.
Went 6-1 in San Francisco. Well done!
As did volleyball
And finally, a word from Coach Harsin
This is a thing that can actually be purchased. For money.
