No. 5 Boise State Takes on Unranked Fresno State on College Football Friday

10/7/11 in NCAAF   |   xoJillian   |   60 respect

Kellen Moore, Boise State QB, is looking to get back on track against an OK Fresno State and keep his name in the running for Heisman. Moore has completed 101 of 138 passes this season and has thrown for 14 touchdowns. With Moore not having the best game of his life last week versus Nevada, Boise State has much to be encouraged about with how well their rush game stepped up.
 
Fresno State will officially join the Mountain West Conference in 2012, which will reignite the rivalry between the Broncos and the Bulldogs but in a new conference. Fresno State is coming off of a 38-28 home loss to the SEC’s favorite loser: Ole Miss.
 
Fresno State has had chances to play big games and knock off a ranked team this year, but they have fallen short. The Bulldogs have to learn to stop giving up the big plays which have hurt them all season long.
 
As a side note: Boise State is the highest rated team to EVER play at the Fresno State Stadium.
 
In the most obvious statement of the day: This would be a huge win for Fresno State. I have to say that I really believe Fresno State has a chance here. They’ve lost to the Broncos in the last five meetings and are taking them on at home. I think their emotions could help propel them to a big game, especially since Boise State might not be taking this game too seriously.

Florida and South Carolina are overrated. Auburn and Arkansas have not showed to be a powerhouse yet. So, there is one tough team as of now on that list. Like you said" Not hard to win like Boise does when you only have to get up for one game a year."

Not hard to win like Boise does when you only have to get up for one game a year.  Auburn plays South Carolina, Arkansas, Florida & LSU.  In a row.

Typical comment coming from a SEC fan.

Nothing says national powerhouse like playing on Friday night.  Boise is a joke.
