FEDEX Field in Landover, MD was packed with about 90,000 Virginia Tech students and fans going bat shit crazy during the introductions last night. I literally was getting the chills watching it. And I don't even like the Hokies. In fact I had money on Boise State winning and covering the spread(-2.5) but when I saw the introduction I started having second thoughts. The stadium was at least 85% VaTech colors. It may have said neutral site game but this was for all intended purposes a road game for Boise State. Still people want to underrate the Broncos and overrate the Hokies. The Broncos lived up to their top 3 preseason ranking by jumping out to an early 17-0 lead. Then they started committing stupid penalties and some awful turnovers. They didn't play their A game. And they still beat a top 10 Hokies team. QB Kellen Moore had a Heisman moment when he threw a perfect touchdown pass with little over a minute left to put the Broncos in the lead 33-30. The Broncos proved yet again that they can play with anybody. Even on the road in early September.

There are still going to be doubters. People are already hating on Boise State for not playing anybody with their shit conference schedule. It's not their fault their conference sucks. They scheduled Oregon last year and beat them out of conference. They put VaTech and Oregon State on the schedule this year and will beat them both. They will go undefeated yet the elitist BCS Conference fan is going to bitch and moan if they make the Championship game. People need to deal with it. Boise State has been legit for years.
