About two decades ago, the plucky football team from Boise State, with its blue field and unflinching commitment to play anyone, anytime, anywhere started to make waves on the national scene. They seemed to place special emphasis on the ‘anytime’ and ‘anywhere’ parts to secure commitments from a litany of big-time ‘anyones’ to play them. More often than not, they put those teams away in convincing fashion. Just in the years that followed the greatest college football game of all time, the Broncos claimed many early season victories over eventual Power 5 (formerly BCS) conference champions. A win over the Pac-10 champion Ducks in 2009 was followed by a victory over the ACC champion Hokies in 2010, and the SEC East champion Bulldogs in 2011 and so on and so forth.
