LAS VEGAS (AP) — Once again, Boise State is in this gambling city for a bowl game to end yet another successful season. Unlike previous years, though, no one is talking about where the Broncos should really be.
There is no BCS controversy for the No. 20 Broncos coming into the Las Vegas Bowl to play Washington. No talk about Boise State being in the chase for a national title, either.
But if this season is what rebuilding is all about, Boise State coach Chris Petersen will gladly take it.
Petersen’s team wasn’t perfect this year, though the Broncos aren’t complaining about a 10-2 record and a national ranking. Not after losing six starters from last year to the NFL draft and having to find a quarterback to replace Kellen Moore, who went 50-3.
