I live on the west coast. I know a lot of people who are Boise State diehards. They believe the Broncos have a legitimate shot at a national title if they go undefeated. Based on their past performance in bowl games and what Utah did last year. My problem with this of course is their schedule- rated #117 in difficulty. The BCS sets up for Boise State probably off of one difficult game. They host Oregon on Sept. 3- but Oregon was decimated by graduation so will not be great. Boise plays-OOC Miami Oh, Bowling Green, UC Davis after Oregon. To me if you want a shot at the title you have to play a tougher OOC schedule than that. Oregon might be their only true test all year! Last year at least Utah went to the big house, played BYU and TCU.
