I broke my finger last week.
On the other hand I’m ok.
Bronco FB holding steady in the rankings
No teams jumped, nor did the Broncos do any jumping in either of the Coaches or AP.
Which I am kind of surprised by. Figured the bye could have been somewhat detrimental considering the Broncos weren’t on anyone’s screens.
UCF did close in a smidge after shellacking UCONN. Going to come to the wire at the end of the year.
Broncos best in the west
The Best in the West for 09/29/2019 - Boise State is still ruling the roost. UW passed USC, and USU passed BYU. pic.twitter.com/dybNKzLcck— FünkeBronco (@FunkeBronco) September 29, 2019
In Standford’s down year, I don’t think they will catch Boise State for a bit. But Utah State took over BYU. And USC may be struggling for some wins.
More of the yoozh, really. Still 2⁄3 left of the schedule to play, though.
Woof. Boise State took a pretty good-sized hit here. Reminder: not a ranking of résumé. But based on performance on the field. The bye did no one any favors in this regard.
Broncos open as 21.5 favorites
Sounds about right. I think the Broncos can cover.

It’s quite possible it’s due to P5 teams not wanting to schedule UCF. But Boise State hasn’t had many problems.
(Also: the majority of the chatter was the Boise State matchup even though UCF had announced BYU the same day.)
