Back in 2005, Boise went to Athens for the season opener holding a three-year mark of 36-3; four quarters later, Georgia escaped with a 48-13 win, dominating the Broncos from start to finish in a win that was thought to have sent Boise back to irrelevance. Not quite. There is a difference between the 2005 version and this year’s team: those Broncos were young and inexperienced, while the current Broncos are as battle-tested as any team in the nation.
