he Boise State Broncos and their fans have had their dreams dashed several times over the past five years. The Broncos earned the respect of fans across the nation following their Fiesta Bowl victory over the Oklahoma Sooners at the end of the 2006 season, securing a perfect season in the process.
The Bowl Championship Series (BCS) has not been as willing to give the Broncos credit, however. The rating system denied them a trip to the National Championship Game in 2009, despite Boise State finishing the season 13-0. Another Fiesta Bowl win, this time over the fellow undefeated TCU Horned Frogs, gave Boise State its second undefeated season in four years.
Since 2002, Boise State has had seven undefeated or one-loss seasons, but have never been ranked better than fourth in the final rankings. The Broncos joined the Western Athletic Conference in 2001 and finished first or second in the conference every season through 2010. They will be moving to the Mountain West Conference this year.
With quarterback Kellen Moore and running back Doug Martin returning to lead the offense and Shea McClellin wreaking havoc on defense, the Broncos are projected to be ranked in the top 10 when the season begins. The season will being with a bang as Boise State will travel to the Georgia Dome to take on the Georgia Bulldogs.
Here is a list of the top five dream scenarios for the Broncos this season.
