What looked as though might be a major setback to Boise States season, was nothing more than a slight speed bump on the road to a BCS bowl game. Kellen Moore shook off a terrible first quarter in which he fumbled and had a pass intercepted to throw for 333 yards and four touchdowns. What was more impressive than Kellen Moores comeback was the play of the Broncos defense. Boise State was able to limit Fresno State too just 125 total yards and nine first downs. After rushing for over 500 yards the past two weeks, the Bulldogs main weapon running back Robbie Rouse was limited to only 70 yards rushing most off which came on Fresno States last drive.
Being the only top-4 team playing this weekend, Boise State had the national stage all to itself, and they did not disappoint. Boise State got past a slow start to beat Fresno State 51-0. The Broncos defense was able to sufficate the Bulldogs offense holding them to their worst offensive production of the season. The Broncos offense was able to show off its balanced offensive attack as they gained 519 total yards 125 those coming on the ground and 391 yards coming through the air.
WIth the college football season winding down, these last few games remaining on many teams schedule are some of the most important. With two games left on their schedule against Nevada and Utah State, Boise State must continue to defeat its opponents by an impressive manor to continue to move up the ranks of the BCS. Its main foe, TCU, only has one remaining game against New Mexico and in order to stay ahead of Boise State in the rankings, they must hope that one of those two teams can defeat Boise State. These next few weeks of college football will be exciting and with so much on the line for many of the top teams in the country, one of them is bound to have their heart broken.
