Boise State Broncos Football Schedule
The Boise State Broncos entered the 2014 season as an unranked football team
for the first time since 2008, but they are not letting it get them down. They know better than anyone that a mid-major can
achieve glory among the big time programs, so they will do what they are known for- fighting for their goal. The Boise State
Broncos football program made a name for themselves on a national scale when they shocked the Oklahoma Sooners and the world
in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl with their masterful trick plays, the football program has gone on to prove that their upset victory
was no fluke. The Broncos have since moved to the Mountain West Conference and have continued to impress, putting their name
in with the most consistent programs of the last decade. The Mountain West Conference has become increasingly competitive
as the Broncos continue to be among the most respected and feared programs in the country. Looking at their 2014 season, there
are many games that jump out as must see matchups for Broncos fans.
One of the biggest obstacles in the Broncos' quest
for the Mountain West title comes from the reigning conference champions, the Fresno State Bulldogs, who make their visit
to Boise on Friday, October 17. The Broncos were the #1 passing team in the NCAA in 2013, but have a new quarterback since
their 2013 star quarterback, Derek Carr, is now the starting quarterback for the Oakland Raiders in the NFL. The Broncos and
the Bulldogs will both be sure to bring their best to "The Blue" in Boise, since they know that this game in October is crucial
to winning the conference. These two Mountain West powerhouse programs both boast strong offenses that will move the ball
up and down the field, so don't miss a second of the action.
Another matchup on the Broncos schedule that will pack
Albertsons Stadium in Boise is the November 15 visit from the San Diego State Aztecs. The Aztecs are always a tough match
for any team, and this season their defense is extremely tough on their foes. They are currently allowing just 19 points per
game and the Broncos are going to have to find a way to score points in their own house. Senior quarterback Quinn Kaehler
is coming off of a toughgame against North Carolina, but has incredible talent that will be on display at Albertsons Stadium,
so expect the Broncos defense to be looking to force turnovers in order to control the tempo of the game. StubHub has tickets
for the best seats in the house for all of the Boise State Broncos home games, so don't miss out on all of the high flying
football action by getting your Broncos tickets today.
Boise State Broncos Football Rivalries
State Broncos are a part of a few great college football rivalries that are always thrilling for the players and fans. The
biggest rival of them all was their in-state rivals, the University of Idaho Vandals, who battle for what is known as the
Governor's Trophy. The rivals competed in conference games when they were both members of the Big Sky Conference, Big West
Conference and Western Athletic Conference, but this rivalry that once spanned 40 games ended in 2010 when the Broncos moved
to their new home in the Mountain West Conference. Since the dissolution of the Governor's Trophy, the Broncos clashes with
the Nevada Wolfpack have become the newest rivalry for Broncos fans. Like the rivalry with Idaho, the games against the Nevada
have spanned difference conferences, and now as members of the Mountain West Conference, these games mean more than just bragging
rights. The most memorable game between these two teams occurred in 2010, when the Broncos took the field with a perfect season
and possibly a BCS bowl berth hanging in the balance. The Wolfpack pulled off the upset, beating the Broncos in overtime 34-31
after trailing 17-0 in the second quarter. Led by current San Francisco 49ers star quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Nevada ended
a 10 game losing streak to the Broncos in what has been called the biggest win in the Wolfpack's long history.
