Wake Up, Bronco Nation: Bronco XC starts; BYU offense; UConn preparing; Another Sports Illustrated

NCAA Football: Boise State at Troy Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

I started reading a horror story in braille.

I think something bad is about to happen, I can feel it.

Bronco XC will kickoff their season this weekend

Both the men’s and the women’s team are participating in this meet. As a reminder: the men’s team is no. 26 while the women’s is no. 5. Should be fun.

Apparently BYU is modelling their offense after Boise State

So that means the Arizona wins counts as—what—a .3 win for the Broncos, right? If there was any ‘tie’ between UCF and the Broncos, that’s the tiebreaker, yeah?

UConn defense preparing for Boise State

Here is my favorite point from the piece:

For the Huskies to have any hope of corralling Boise State, Edsall said, they will have to communicate better. The coach said defensive players struggled against UCF to hear calls from their teammates.

Guys: the Huskies were at home when they got shellacked by the hands of UCF. I mean, when the home team is on defense, you rely on the crowd to be noisy so that the the opposing offense has a rough time calling plays. But when the defense has the struggles? That’s... some next level stuff.

With Boise’s own crowd issues (**cough**the wave**cough**) at least we know when to shut up so our offense can work. Maybe the UConn defense will... be better?

Sports Illustrated has Boise State ranked

They also have Oklahoma State ranked on here as well. Which will, hopefully, continue on to next week.

OBNUG’s Russ Wood had a chat with The UConn Blog

Answered some questions and gave some insight. You should check it out.
