OBNUG: Boise State Can Play Defense, Too

When you think of Boise State you probably think of offense and trick plays. But it was special teams and defense that led the No. 6 Broncos to their 17-10 Fiesta Bowl win over No. 3 TCU. Boise blog One Bronco Nation Under God thinks the team had a personal mission tonight to prove theirs was the truly good defense on the field.

Coming into the game you would be excused if you thought that only one participant in the Fiesta Bowl had a defense. The Broncos apparently took it personally. The BSU defense was on fire almost all night long, stuffing running lanes, keeping receivers bottled up, and putting on the type of performance that is legendary.

36 rushing yards for TCU?!?!

1 for 12 on 3rd down?!?!

Unbelievable.

Words cannot describe right now. This was the Oregon defensive performance that we all knew they were capable of except I think tonight’s was even better. Give me a few minutes. I can hardly get myself composed right now.
