The Boise State Pre-Game

The Washington Huskies welcome the 20th-ranked Boise St. Broncos to Montlake on Saturday for the first meeting ever betweenthese two schools. The Broncos own the nation’s longest winning streak at 14 games as well as the nation’s ugly field:

I find it disgusting that they play football on the site of the 1986 Smurf Massacre.

Boise St. became media darlings last year when they went 13-0 and stunned heavily favored Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl on a trick “Statue of Liberty” score in overtime. Many people (including me) consider that David vs. Goliath battle to be the greatest college football game they have ever watched. The contest was given even more of a Hollywood twist when star tailback Ian Johnson proposed to BSU cheerleader/girlfriend Chrissy Popadics on the field after the game:

Good to see that Ian is Living Strong.

Chrissy went from being a part-time waitress at the Greasy Spoon Diner in downtown Boise to the future wife of an NFL running back. Shrewd move, Popadics.

The Broncos have lost a lot of talent from last year’s undefeated team and are certainly beatable, especially when playing outside of their ridiculous stadium (BSU is 0-12 all-time when playing at BCS schools):

Where children play football.


Where adults play football.

I expect the Husky defense to contain Mr. Popadics and harass the Bronco’s first-year starting quarterback Taylor Tharp into making costly mistakes. On the offensive side of the ball, “The Chosen One” will find plenty of space to run through the Bronco D on his way to over 100 yards rushing.


PREDICTION TIME


Vegas says BSU by 3.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times says Huskies 35, Broncos 32.

The Dawg Dude’s Patented PS2 NCAA Football Game Simulation System predicts a 49-10 whitewashing by the Dawgs with Locker passing for 195 yards and a score and rushing for 93 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Husky Stadium will be rocking and the Huskies will move closer to a Top 25 ranking with the victory.
