Big Game

Two national sports writers are listing the November 23rd Boise State at Hawaii game as one of the biggest of the year in college football. ESPN's Mark Schlabach writes that it's the best game of Week 13.
Nov. 23: Boise State at Hawaii (9 p.m., ESPN2)
Post-Thanksgiving Day football on the island. Ian Johnson vs. Colt Brennan. Maui Invitational hoops. Are my editors reading this?
Okay, so maybe he has an ulterior motive. CFN's Pete Fiutak ranks the game at #21 in his quick picks of the 50 biggest games of the year. Here's an excerpt:
21. Boise State at Hawai‘i, Nov. 23
Hawaii gave Boise State all it could handle in a thrilling 41-34 loss last year, but now Colt Brennan and the boys get the pivotal WAC showdown in their house. Of course, the Warriors have had powerhouse offenses before that were supposed to blow past the Broncos, but they're 0-6 against them since both became WAC members. The pressure will likely be as intense as any late November game, as Hawaii, if everyone stays healthy and all goes according to plan, should be 10-0, thanks to a lousy schedule. Boise State, if it beats Washington in Seattle, will likely be 11-0 with a shot at a second straight BCS bid. The running of the Broncos will do just enough to keep Brennan off the field for long stretches, but the Hawaii passing game won't get pressured enough and will pull off the most important win in the school's history in the final moments. The week after, Hawaii will beat Washington, go unbeaten, and be off to a BCS game.

Predicted score in July: Hawaii 45 ... Boise State 41
Sorry for highlighting something that's not supposed to exist (see previous post). Anyway, it should be a really great game. Who knows, maybe ESPN and that fool Lee Corso will show up in Halawa.

    Its already proof that this season is really hyped up leading up to the first game. Just look where Hawaii is ranked in the preseason AP Top 25 poll for 2007.

    Hawaii: #23
    Boise State: #24

    The preseason rankings will definately help Hawaii move up in the polls and possibly get that invite to a BCS game, possible the Fiesta or Sugar Bowl, as one sports analysts predicts from Fox Sports. Read more about it...

    If Boise beats Hawaii they lose money and the WAC loses a chance to show case their conference. Cinderella won't be invited to the dance. Hawaii's biggest challenge, you bet. Boise lets up? Heck nope. It will be a gunslingers contest and I bet the fan's will win!!! For the WAC Championship as a sidebar...

    Hawaii cant afford to start slow against Boise state,like they did last year.the Broncos have good tailbacks and great schemes to pass off of.Colt will get his yards,but watch out for a big play on special teams from Boise state,or trick play.Hawaii 38-Boise State 31........
