ESPN:These Two Teams, Not Boise State To Make New Year’s 6 Bowl
College football is back in Bronco Nation, and unlike previous seasons, the Boise State Broncos start the season with a marque match up against the Washington Huskies in Seattle. This year's schedule is among the most challenging considering nonconference opponents Washington, UCF, and Memphis.
However, the most trusted name in college football coverage is predicting two other teams will get the coveted Fiesta Bowl spot representing the Group of Five at the end of the season.

Although there were only a few games last week, ESPN's College Gameday crew shared their predictions on who will win each conference, including the Group of Five. Despite having one of the most dynamic play makers in college football, Taylen Green, at quarterback, Boise State was not mentioned.
Like any college football team, the team has some questions heading into the season. There's another offensive coordinator, and the defense lost a lot of starters last year, including Scott Matlock and JL Skinner. Both players are hoping to make an NFL roster.
