Boise State-Nebraska? And We Only Have To Wait Five Years

One of the biggest knocks on Boise State this year was that the Broncos didn’t play any truly difficult opponents between their season-opening bout with Oregon and their Fiesta Bowl showdown with fellow undefeated mid-major TCU.

The Broncos have an opportunity to fix that … in the year 2015. Nebraska has offered a two-for-one deal that would see Boise play a pair of games in Lincoln in return for the ‘Huskers traveling to Idaho and trying to find blue-clad Broncos on the smurf turf. There’s apparently been no word from Boise officials.

Corn Nation, our Nebraska blog, thinks this is a good idea. And some Boise fans seem irritated that State hasn’t taken the deal.

Yeah, Nebraska gets two of the three home games, but Boise State gets a home game against a marquee national championship contender plus a huge payday. There would be no trouble selling out that one, and I’m sure that it would make at least a primetime game on ESPN.

Of course, if the buzz is to be believed, Boise will be part of an improved, BCS-certified Mountain West Conference by then. Which would make this one of those rare inter-BCS-conference battles.

Either way, a win for college football fans.
