Week 9 in the WAC


Week 9 Wac Preview:

Wouldn’t it be ironic if a loss to Colorado was what kept Boise St. out of the “Big Game”?  Not saying it will, but Hawaii’s Week 3 loss to the Buffaloes are all that is keeping them out of the top 25 right now.  There only other loss is the opening game to the Trojans, and that was no blowout.  Either way, Hawaii has to take care of the Vandals of Idaho before they meet the Broncos next week.

Boise St. already took care of business with a 49-20 drubbing of LA Tech on Tuesday night.  Tech kept it interesting early with an onside kick and they also handed Kellen Moore his 2nd Int. of the season.  That wasn’t enough to keep up with Coach Peterson’s crew though as they found plenty of ways to score including finding Moore on a TD reception to add to his 2 passing TD’s.

Nevada should continue to move forward against Utah St. and I’ll let you pick the winner of the San Jose St. and New Mexico St. matchup…if you want…you don’t have to.

Weekly Tid Bit:

Doug Martin’s 150 yards on Tuesday night was a career high.  The Broncos also seemed determined to run the ball more, especially early in the game against LA Tech.  Was this a sign of things to come or just a matter of taking advantage of matchups?  Either way, developing a strong running game is going to be essential to Boise St. as they’ll want to keep teams like Hawaii’s offense off the field as much as possible and control the clock.
