I blogged before that Boise State was looking at taking on some big money road games to ameliorate its financial situation and applauded the school for making that move, both to shore up its bank account and also its strength of schedule. In my humble opinion, it’s one of several options the best of the mid-major schools should be exploring to raise their value in the eyes of the BCS grand poobahs.
So I welcome this reported development.
Broncos-Hokies in D.C.? Boise State said it was looking to toughen up its schedule with more profitable road games, and it wasn’t kidding: A Richmond, Va., television station reports Boise will open 2010 in a made-for-TV opener against Virginia Tech, possibly at FedEx Field in Washington, D.C., where the Hokies last opened up against eventual mythical champion Southern Cal in 2004.
The Doc’s right when he says this is the kind of thing BSU has to do if it wants to be considered a serious candidate for a BCS title game. BYU’s schedule, Tulsa’s schedule and now this – maybe these schools are getting the message. If they are, it’s good for college football all around.
