Warriors, Broncos Get Help

Kickoff on the Big Island is less than eight hours away, but before Boise State of Hawai'i ever take the field, the winner of this monumental WAC showdown already has some help for its Bowl Championship Series aspirations. Arizona State's 44-24 loss to USC last night is sure to send the Sun Devils' BCS rating tumbling, which should give tonight's winner room to move. But it doesn't end there.

UH-Boise Showdown Big for BCS and WAC

Only in 2004 when Utah and Boise State were unbeaten and jockeying for Bowl Championship series position have two non-BCS conference teams been as highly rated as Hawai'i and BSU are now.

BCS Implications Are Gone, But Still One To Watch

Boise State's hopes of a second consecutive BCS bowl appearance were all but dashed in Week 2 against Washington. That same Saturday, the class of Conference USA, Southern Mississippi, eventually fell to Tennessee after a nip-tuck first half. The two meet tomorrow night on the Smurf Turf, and while the game is devoid of BCS busting connotation, it's going to be a prime time battle no college football fan should miss.

The New Breed?

The BCS dreams for three of the top contenders were all but ended Saturday. Both previous non-BCS conference teams to make the big show went undefeated, and TCU getting passed over for a two-loss Notre Dame in 2005 likely indicates Utah, TCU and Boise State would need at-large BCS candidates to lose three times.

Broncos' BCS Bubble Bursts; Fresno Fights To Finish
