Michigan St another challenging opener for Broncos

Over the last few years, perhaps no program has invested more in

Week One of the college football season than Boise State.

This is when coach Chris Petersen’s group travels across the

country to play a top team on hostile turf, trying to make the most

of a rare chance to prove itself against elite competition.

The names have changed – especially at quarterback – but the

scenario remains the same. This time, it’s Michigan State the

Broncos will take on first, in a Friday night showdown under the

lights at Spartan Stadium.

The Broncos enter this opener ranked 24th. Michigan State is

ranked 13th and favored by around a touchdown.
