All about Boise State

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Boise Practice Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

Today features recent stories and news surrounding Boise State. Most of it is various previews on the football team, but there is something on the success of their track and field team as well.

S Nawahine makes a watch list.

There are 42 names that were released for the Lott Impact trophy watch list. One of them is Junior S Kekoa Nawahine and he is the only player from the MWC.

The strength of each team in the ESPN pre-season top 25.

It’s worth the read to look at each team, but for Boise State (who they rank #21), they highlight the defensive line. With the line returning every contributor from last season, including seniors David Moa and Jabril Frazier, plus redshirt sophomore Curtis Weaver after his groundbreaking All-MWC 1st team selection.

10 games that should be annual rivalries.

Again, this is worth taking a look at each of the games they highlight. I’d tune in to watch Georgia vs Clemson every year. But for the sake of this posting, they mention Boise State vs Oregon. The Broncos have won the last three contests over the Ducks, most recently last year in the Vegas Bowl.

Athlon sports previews the 2018 Broncos.

They mention how the Broncos are geared up to be the best team in the Group of 5. Their biggest questions are developing playmakers on offense for QB Rypien to pass the ball to and although they return 9 defensive starters, they need to replace their best player.

Also, the women’s Track and Field team is doing big things.

Here’s a story on it as well.

On the horizon:

  • Coming Friday: A new series will debut. Friday Night Lights will highlight different high school football programs from around the country.
