Eye On Boise

More national attention for BSU football...

Here's a news item from the Associated Press:  BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The "firsts" keep coming for the Boise State football team. The third-ranked Broncos will be featured on the national cover of Sports Illustrated magazine this week. The Idaho Statesman reports that SI writer Austin Murphy spent much of last week in Boise to report and write a story about whether the Broncos should be eligible to play for the BCS national championship. Two photographers shot the Boise State-Oregon State game on Saturday night. Boise State was on a regional cover of Sports Illustrated's college football preview in August, but this is the school's first national cover. It hits news stands Wednesday. Boise State's game against Oregon State also drew ESPN's "College GameDay" show to Boise for the first time on Saturday. And the game against Oregon State was the first regular-season Boise State game to air nationally on network television.
