No Lead Is Safe Against Moscow

All too soon, the final home football game of the season is here. This Saturday on Senior Day, Boise State hosts Idaho in a noon start at Bronco Stadium.

In watching Idaho games this year, you get the feeling that when they get behind, they've got you right where they want you.  The Vandals plays their best from behind.  To their credit, they keep coming at you.  Because of this trait, an opposing team can never feel comfortable or the next thing you know, they'll be gasping for their life.


For example, Idaho was down 35-14 to Northern Illinois only to cut the lead to 42-35 and actually have a chance to tie it with seconds left.  They were behind to Hawai'i before making it 48-20.  The Vandals were down to San Jose State on the road 21-6 before rallying to make it 28-20.  They got behind Fresno State at home 31-14 before making it 37-24.  Nevada held a 17-0 first quarter lead only to see the Moscow school close to 17-14 before the Wolf Pack pulled away again 37-21.


The lesson is obvious for anyone caring to learn it.  It is simply that no lead is safe against this team.  Heck, even if a team was up on Idaho by 50 points, I think they'd find a way to rally and almost win the game.  This Bronco team would be well served to heed the warning and be prepared to play 60 minutes of solid football.  Any letup and they will regret it. 


This Saturday of course is Senior Day in which the great Boise State senior class will be saluted prior to the game.  BroncoCountry will feature an article on Senior Day as we draw closer.  We all look forward with anticipation the great college football coming our way this Saturday in Bronco Stadium.
