Well, we all knew what would happen in this game. The Boise State Broncos defeated the New Mexico State Aggies 59-0 in a game where the Aggies had no chance of winning. It was all over once the Broncos arrived in Aggie Memorial Stadium. This was Boise State’s first WAC game of the year, and to be honest this wasn’t even a game at all. It looked as if a Pop Warner team was playing against the Broncos. Boise State was just t0o fast and too strong for the Aggies, and they dominated the game from the opening kickoff to the final seconds of the game.
Kellen Moore threw for three touchdowns, and could have thrown for another three more if he had played the entire game. Mike Coughlin started the scoring off with a 15 yard run for a touchdown, and from there the flood gates opened against New Mexico State. The Aggies’ offense could not get started as they committed three turnovers and could only muster up 208 yards of total offense. Boise State’s defense was on its best form. Even without the help from Wiston Venable, who was suspended for the first half of the game, the Broncos completely suffocated the Aggies offense.
Boise State did what they needed to do agaisnt the Aggies, and that was defeat them by a large margin. The next tough game on Boise State’s schedule will be November 26th against the Nevada Wolfpack. Until then, Boise State must defeat the likes of Fresno State, Toledo, and Idaho by large enough margins so that they will be kept in the national championship talks. With the recent rise of the University of Oregon in the latest polls, the Broncos must continue to run through its schedule in high scoring fashion. They must hope that the three teams ahead of them in the polls falter at some point in their schedules, which would allow for the Broncos to be the first non-AQ team to play in the national championship.
