Boise State vs BYU always FEELS consequential, but this year it actually is. BYU may have an inflated ranking due to pandemic (hell, so might we)...but they are a legitimately good team and deserve a ranking at least in the same hemisphere as their current one. They are also enjoying a mountain of hype...enough to make the Broncos home ‘dogs for the first time in a while. Of course, this isn’t exactly the year for this kind of matchup twixt the Broncos and Cougs since there will be virtually no crowd and the Broncos will be sans a few key cogs in their machine...but the show must go on and Boise State can notch a marquee win for the season AND avenge last season’s road loss to the Cougars that likely sunk the Broncos’ NY6 hopes.
I’ll be in the booth at Albertsons Stadium tonight by virtue of a negative Covid test and also manning the @OBNUG twitter account and coming afterwards with a (hopefully gleeful) recap. FWIW, Michael Johnson will be in the stands snapping some pics. The game will be televised on FS1, but you can hang out here and vent your emotions below (don’t vent too many emotions or we may have to crack a window).
