Boise State Football officially moves to the Big East

I'm still not sure what a school from the Northwest is doing in the Big East, but whatever.  The ink is now dry on the deal.  :

After multiple outside sources confirmed the move, Boise State University officially joined the Big East Conference on Saturday.

BSU will now start the 2013-14 school year as a football-only member. However, the Broncos will remain in the MWC for the team's 2012-2013 season.

As required by its agreement with the Mountain West, Boise State issued its withdrawal from that conference prior to Friday night’s midnight deadline for withdrawal.

In addition, Boise State officials say they are in ongoing, substantive discussions with the Big West Conference as a home for the majority of the school's remaining sports. The Big West plans to hold a meeting prior to the start of the upcoming academic year and make a final decision on Boise State’s membership.

“There is no doubt that conference affiliation is a difficult and complex issue, but I am very pleased where we stand today and excited for the future prospects of all of our Bronco sports,” said Boise State President Dr. Bob Kustra.

Just a reminder, all Boise State sports will compete in the MWC for the 2012-13 school, with the exception of wrestling (Pac-12) and gymnastics (WAC).

Broncos going to Vegas again after snubbing by the Sugar Bowl

Finishing the season in the slot for the BCS was not good enough for the Sugar Bowl. Boise State was bypassed by the BCS in favor of ranked Michigan and Virginia Tech. Lame.

BSU will be facing ASU instead, who is ranked ___ in the BCS. (Nope, they aren't in the top 25.) But hey, it's a bowl game, right?

GO BRONCOS!

Broncos almost back to pre-TCU ranking

After the heartrending single point loss to TCU (seriously, I had to leave the room), BSU dropped 5 spots in the BCS poll to number 10. This weekend it appears a few other teams caught whatever we had last week.  Oklahoma State, Oregon, Oklahoma, and Clemson -- all ranked higher that Boise State -- lost in dramatic upsets.

Sunday night, BSU gained a few spots to number 7, renewing hopes of making a bowl game. If Stanford loses to Notre Dame next week, our chances are even better. has more about what happened:

Friday, second place Oklahoma State unranked Iowa State, losing 37-31. That seemed to send the dominoes falling.

Number four Oregon  to unranked USC 38-35 despite a late rally by the Ducks. In a fit of irony, Oregon missed a 37-yard field goal that would have given them the win - the same distance Boise State missed by a week prior.

Boise State opens the BCS poll ranked #5

After clobbering CSU yesterday, BSU again dropped a spot in the Coaches poll to 7th. They held fast at 5th in the AP and Harris polls however.  The first round of BCS results came out tonight and .

For the third straight year, Boise State University is ranked among the top-five in the season's first Bowl Championship Series standings with the Broncos coming in at No. 5.

The Broncos have a BCS average of .8027 and follow No. 1 LSU (.9522), No. 2 Alabama (.9519), No. 3 Oklahoma (.9301) and No. 4 Oklahoma state (.8568).

This is the third highest ranking for Boise State in the season's initial BCS standings.  Last year the Broncos started at No. 3 while they were ranked No. 4 in the first BCS standings of the 2009 season.

Boise State is the only team in the country that has started in the top-five of the BCS standings the past three years. 

Oklahoma and Alabama have started the season among the top-five teams twice in the past three years with the Sooners beginning the 2010 standings at No. 1, while Alabama was No. 2 in the first BCS standings of the 2009 season.  LSU and Oklahoma State have not been in the initial BCS standings the past two seasons.
