Boise State is at it again.
Coach Chris Petersen's Broncos are quietly piling up victories with a team that underwent a major reconstruction.
And wouldn't you know it, the Broncos are threatening to bust into the BCS. There's a twist this time.
After all those seasons Boise State was shut out of the best bowl games in favor of brand name teams from more high-profile conferences, now it's the benefit of the doubt the Broncos are getting from poll voters that might push them onto the big postseason stage in their last season in the Mountain West.
The Broncos face what looks to be a challenge Saturday when San Diego State (6-3, 4-1) visits. After that they travel to Hawaii, and play Colorado State at home, before finishing the season at Nevada, another potentially tricky hurdle.
