What do you get if you cross an angry sheep and a angry cow?

You get two animals in a baaaaaaaad moooooooood.

Watch Leighton Vander Esch hit someone

I am glad he is picking up where he left off.

The kid can’t seem to avoid the injury bug. But when he’s on the field, he makes an in immediate impact (literally and figuratively). I just hope that he is able to stay healthy for the rest of the year. He deserves to be out there on the field.

Broncos move up in the AP top 25

Again, this is such a weird season it’s kind of hard to put a lot of stock in this considering what teams have played, and how much. It’s hard to gauge how good these teams are (or aren’t). Which does bring up the BYU game this Friday, they will be no. 9. Which is cool but also, meh.

Speaking of the game this Friday

The Broncos are a two point underdog. Which is interesting because:

Mr. Rains mentions that it’s the Fresno State game in 2018 that had the Broncos as home underdogs. You may also be wondering about the game against Boston College. Rains does address that as well: Broncos were underdogs. But since BC was TECHNICALLY the home team, it’s a semantic issue. Still, fun with stats!

Check out the Sagarin rankings because numbers are fun!

Broncos are number nine here.
