Boise State coach says bowl system needs changes



BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Boise State football coach Chris Peterson is calling for an end to the current Bowl Championship Series system after the No. 7 Broncos were left out of the high-profile games.

The Broncos (11-1) accepted an invitation to the MAACO Bowl in Vegas on Sunday. It’s the fourth time the Broncos have finished in the top 10 of the BCS without getting a bid to one of the elite match-ups. This year, they were passed over along with Nos. 6 Arkansas, 8 Kansas State and 9 South Carolina.

During a press conference Monday, Peterson said people are frustrated and tired of the BCS, the Idaho Statesman ( ) reported. Peterson also said the system needs to be changed, perhaps by using a committee like the men’s basketball tournament to rank the teams.
