I think Boise State would fit nicely in the Big 12. But that's just me.
I couldn't have cared less about the victor last night, but I thought the refs blew two no-calls at the end--the block in the back that wasn't a block in the back, then the no-pass-interference-call on Taylor's last throw. The DB obviously wasn't looking at the ball, and when he turned, he grabbed the receiver's right arm to the point the WR had to push him off with his left hand. Right in front of the ref, too, but no flag.
Good for Boise State that they held on. I kind of feel sorry for VT because they keep starting the season with all these big games, but they can't win one. They have been getting closer and closer, though. Taylor just isn't a big game QB to me. He only seems to be able to hit guys if they're wide open, but their lack of a running game last night didn't do him any favors either. BS kept rushing just 4 guys, and they kept getting pressure, and sometimes even with 3 guys. So either VT has OL problems, or the DL for BS was just that good.
I took time out from Dragon*Con to watch the FSU game. As stated, even though it was Stamford, it's nice to see them actually dominate a team they should dominate. Jax St last year was almost a train wreck, but then Ole Miss found that out this year, didn't they? And WTF with Kansas losing to North Dakota State? 6-3, no less.
