Boise State scored on the first play of the game and never looked back as the Bronco’s beat the Sun Devils by 32 points. In his final game, Kellen Moore led his team to an easy victory, despite coughing up the ball a few times. Boise State showed their strength and arguably made a statement that they should have been in the Sugar Bowl. Personally, I agree. This team deserved a bigger game and a better challenge. The outcome may have been different against a top-tier team, but based on what I have seen, Boise State can play with almost anyone. On any given day, this bunch could probably beat 95% of the other schools out there this year.
Not much changed in relation to our standings as only 3 or 4 people in our contest picked against the Broncos. Here are the updated records for you:
The Office Crew:
1st place: 6-0 - Caitlin Weed (Still perfect)
2nd place: 5-1 - T-Bone, Pretzel, Dill, Trip, Cass Waddell, Kelsey Weed, Aaron Sims
3rd place: 4-2 - Kristine Zemen, Cricket, James Knight, Bubbles, Susan James, Steve James, Paige Fierbaugh, Nike, Will Miller, Mary Katherine Lloyd, Kim Halder, Michael Humphrey, Dennis McElhaney, Sharon Latimer, Kirsten Weed, John Lloyd, Becky Martin, David Martin, Snaps
Notables: I’m giving Pistol a break today since Nurse Jenny decided to join the contest. She entered quite late, so she is technically 1-5, but since her first pick that counts was yesterday, I guess you could say she’s 1-0.
Next up, Southern Miss vs. Nevada. Take a look at these mascots and you have what looks to be a Strong Rock Tribal battle as the Golden Eagles take on the Wolfpack. Unfortunately, based on your picks, this could be another lopsided game. Only 3 people in our entire contest placed their faith in Nevada. Let’s see if Brett Favre’s alma mater can seal the deal.
