The Hokies came out flat and were rudely embarrassed in the week's biggest upset.
This loss now hurts the Broncos full body of work, and in order to secure a BCS Bowl game, Boise State will need to crush their weaker WAC opponents. Although voters have stated that Boise has peaked in their standings as the #3 ranked team, I believe Boise will be done unjustly come season's end.
The scheduling of a high octane and season setting game against a solid Boise State team on a Monday night, followed by a Saturday afternoon game the ensuing weekend is absurd. It is absolutely absurd to think your team can recover from a stunning loss in which a number of players cramped up, and then go on to play the same Saturday. This season could have very well started off 2-0, barring a 2 minute drill ran to perfection by Broncos qb Kellen Moore.
Nevertheless an 0-2 start will remove all credibility of a high profile win for the Boise State Broncos. In order for the Broncos to even have a chance now at reaching the BCS Championship Game, Virginia Tech must win out and take the ACC crown.
