The 2009 Western Athletic Conference (WAC) football season was an NCAA football season played from September 3, 2009, to January 4, 2010. The Western Athletic Conference consists of 9 members: Boise State, Fresno State, Hawai'i, Idaho, Louisiana Tech, Nevada, New Mexico State, San Jose State, and Utah State. Boise State won the 2009 WAC title going 13–0, 8–0 in conference and were invited to play in the Fiesta Bowl, in which they defeated previously unbeaten TCU. Nevada, Fresno State, and Idaho also played in bowl games, the Hawaiʻi Bowl, New Mexico Bowl, and Humanitarian Bowl, respectively. Nevada lost to SMU and Fresno State lost to Wyoming, while Idaho beat Bowling Green.

Previous season[edit]

The Boise State Broncos went 12–0 during the regular season to win the conference championship and rise to #9 in the final BCS standings. With Utah of the Mountain West Conference being ranked ahead of them in the BCS, the Broncos missed out on the big money bowls and were selected to play #11 TCU in the San Diego Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl where they would ultimately lose 17–16 to bring their undefeated season to an end.

Other bowl-eligible teams in 2008 were Louisiana Tech (7–5), Fresno State (7–5), Hawaiʻi (7–6), Nevada (7–5) and San Jose State (6–6). La Tech was invited to play in the Independence Bowl, where they won 17–10 over Northern Illinois. Fresno State was invited to play in the New Mexico Bowl where they lost to Colorado State 35–30. Hawaiʻi was invited to play in the Sheraton Hawaiʻi Bowl in its home stadium, where it lost to Notre Dame 49–21. Nevada was invited to the Roady's Humanitarian Bowl where they lost to Maryland 42–35. San Jose State was not invited to a bowl game. Overall the WAC went 1–4 in their bowl games.

Preseason[edit]

Preseason poll[edit]

The 2009 WAC Preseason Poll was announced at the league's football preview in Salt Lake City on July 29.[1] Boise State was overwhelmingly selected as the favorite to win the conference by both the league's coaches and media that cover the WAC. Although the Broncos did not receive all first-place votes in the coaches' poll, their selection was effectively unanimous; league rules prohibit coaches from casting first-place votes for their own teams. Accordingly, Broncos head coach Chris Petersen voted for Nevada.
