Broncos One Win Away From 10-20 Club

Football and basketball are the two major sports in college. When you can be successful at both at the same time, things are going well for you. Boise State is just one win away from becoming just the 15th school since 1980 to be a member of the 10-20 Club twice.

With one more basketball win, Boise State can become only the 15th school since 1980 to be a member of the "10-20 Club" twice.  The Broncos have a minimum of six games to play this season.  To gain access to the exclusive club, a school must win 10 or more regular season football games, followed by 20 or more regular season basketball wins that same school year.  Boise State has a chance to be one of 15 despite the fact that the Bronco football team competed in Division I 16 less years than most other eligible schools.


Last fall, the Bronco football team was 10-2 during the regular season, doing their part to make it happen.  Thus far, the Boise State basketball team is 19-6 and in first place in the Western Athletic Conference.


Boise State achieved the feat in 2003-04, going 12-1 in football and 20-8 in basketball.  The Broncos joined Texas as the only two schools to enter the club that year.  The feat has been accomplished 45 times since 1996, the year Boise State began playing football in I-A, and only 11 schools have done it twice in that time.  The Broncos, of course, won 10 or more games several times from 1980-1995, but those victories came as part of Division I-AA.


Oklahoma, BYU, Arkansas, Texas, Alabama, Florida State, North Carolina, Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, Louisville, West Virginia, Ohio State and Wisconsin are the only 14 schools to gain access to the 10-20 club twice since 1980. 


Texas and Oklahoma are masters at accomplishing the milestone.  The Sooners have reached the plateau five times since 1996 and eight since 1980, while Texas has also achieved the feat five times since 1996 and seven since 1980.  Michigan has become a member of the Club four times while BYU has done it a total of three times, once as a member of the Mountain West Conference.  


In all, the 10-20 milestone has been reached just 38 times since 1996 and 66 times since 1980, or a little more than two times per year.
