Even though Boise State came into this game with no losses, they were still considered to be the underdog as they matched up with the reigning Big 12 champion. Nevertheless, Boise State proved that they can play with the “big dogs” and win (which just goes to show that the current BCS system needs to be trashed in favor of a playoff system).
I’m a sucker for the underdog, so of course I was pulling for Boise State in this one. But I have another reason for pulling for Boise State. They belong to the Western Athletic Conference (WAC), and that is the conference of my alma mater. What can I say? A rising tide lifts all boats, and our boat definitely needs some lifting.
If you missed the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, you missed one of the best college football games of all time. Keep your eyes out for the highlight reels tomorrow because this game was one for the books.
