While most of the drama has subsided in the WAC, there’s still that chance of an upset of Boise State is spending too much time worrying about bowl selections, and one game that nobody is going to watch will have huge ramifications on many teams nationwide.
The WAC’s big showdown came on Friday night, but Saturday wasn’t without it’s surprises too. The league now just needs one more upset to get another team into the bowl picture, while the middle three or four teams in the league are proving to be more even than once thought.
Overall, it was a good, but quiet, weekend for the WAC. Boise survived a mild upset scare Friday night, and while they didn’t get a lot of style points, right now catching TCU isn’t going to hinge on whether they win by 10 or 20 over Louisiana Tech. Fresno beat up on Idaho pretty badly, [...]
With fairly light schedules consisting of mostly conference games, I’m going to consolidate the wrapups for a couple weeks at least. The main reason is that starting tomorrow, I’m launching Mid-Season Report Cards for every single non-BCS conference teams, which should be fun. We also have a very busy week of night games, so there’s [...]
Last week was a pretty good week for the WAC out of conference, going 2-0 against the MAC, getting a MWC win, and not losing to any 1-AA teams. Fresno fell short again, making 3 weeks in a row that they could have realistically beaten a top 30 team. This week is amazingly quiet in [...]
The WAC is the only non-BCS conference that isn’t jumping headlong into conference play, with only one conference game, and it’s next Wednesday, so we’ll preview it more then. So instead of covering every game like we will in conference play, a few highlights from the WAC weekend ahead:
Once again, congratulations go out to all the players of the week and their teams:
This was an interesting weekend for the WAC. They lost their next-to-last undefeated team when UNLV beat Hawaii on a last minute TD, but BYU and Utah lost, leaving Boise State as the current clear front-runner for the BCS Buster role. They’ll still have trouble warding off Houston or TCU, but neither of those two [...]
Well, that was a disastrous day for 2-0 non-BCS teams. BYU, Utah, SMU, Hawaii, and Tulsa all axed from the undefeated list. If you missed it last night, Hawaii went down to UNLV on a last minute touchdown, 32-31. Other late games saw Louisiana Monroe fall to Arizona State 38-14 while San Jose State got [...]
Last time Fresno State and Boise State matched up, Boise won the home game 61-10. Fresno showed last weekend that they’re a new team, and it looks like they may have a shot at the upset tonight (9 PM EST, ESPN/espn360)
Last week, the Bulldogs played Wisconsin to double overtime before taking the loss. QB Ryan [...]
