The 2010 Boise State Broncos football team represented Boise State University in the 2010 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Broncos were led by fifth-year head coach Chris Petersen and played their home games at Bronco Stadium. They entered the 2010 season with winning streaks of 14 games overall and 25 games in regular-season play. This was the Broncos' final season as a member of the Western Athletic Conference, as the school announced on June 11, 2010 that it would leave the WAC for the Mountain West Conference effective July 1, 2011.[1]

The Broncos finished the season 12–1, 7–1 in WAC play to claim a share of the WAC title with Nevada and Hawaiʻi. The title was their third straight and eighth in the last nine years. They were invited to the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas where they defeated Utah 26–3.

Previous season[edit]

The Broncos finished the regular season undefeated, 13–0, for the second year in a row and fourth time in six years and won their seventh WAC title in eight years. They rose in the top 25 polls to as high as #4 in the Coaches and Harris polls before finishing the regular season at #6 in every major poll. Being ranked in the top 8, they were in position to receive an automatic bid to a BCS game, but another non-automatic qualifier, Mountain West champion TCU, was ranked #4 and received the automatic-bid. However, Boise State would become the first non-AQ team to receive an at-large bid to a BCS game as they were selected to play TCU in the Fiesta Bowl. This was the second consecutive time Boise State and TCU faced off in a bowl game, with the 2008 Poinsettia Bowl being the first (a TCU victory, which ruined Boise State's undefeated season) and the first time two teams from non-AQ conferences played each other in a BCS game. The Broncos would knock off the favored Horned Frogs 17–10 to finish the season 14–0 to become only the second team in Division I FBS history to finish a season 14–0 (2002 Ohio State, Alabama also would finish the season 14–0 three days after the Fiesta Bowl).

Pre-season[edit]

Expectations for this season's team were arguably the highest in the program's history. The Broncos returned 23 of the 24 players who started in their 2010 Fiesta Bowl win over TCU. The only loss was cornerback Kyle Wilson, who was selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the New York Jets.[2] Before the season, the Broncos were in the top 5 of most publications' early top 25 rankings, including #2 by Mark Schlabach of ESPN[3] and Lindy's.[4] In both polls they were only ranked behind defending BCS National Champions Alabama.

WAC media days[edit]

During the WAC's football preview on July 26 in Salt Lake City, Utah,[20] the Broncos were selected by both the coaches and media as favorites to win the conference. They received 42 of a possible 43 first-place votes in the media poll, with Nevada coming in second and receiving the other first-place vote. They were effectively the unanimous choice in the coaches' poll, receiving all eight of the possible first-place votes; because conference rules prohibit coaches from voting for their own teams, Chris Petersen gave Nevada his first-place vote.

Kellen Moore was selected as the preseason offensive player of the year.

  2. Nevada – 333 (1)

Pre-season Top 25 polls[edit]

On August 6 Boise State received 1,215 points to rank 5th in the USA Today preseason poll, one spot ahead their season opening opponent, Virginia Tech.[21] The Broncos were the highest rated non BCS conference school.

On August 21, Boise State received 1,336 points to rank 3rd in the Associated Press preseason.[22] They also received one first place vote from Joe Giglio of The Times & Observer in Raleigh, North Carolina. Just as they were in the Coaches poll, the Broncos were the highest rated non-BCS conference school and the ranking is the highest ranking in any poll in school history.

The Broncos' rankings were by far the highest preseason rankings ever for a non BCS conference school as the previous high to start a season was 14th in the AP poll, also achieved by Boise State in 2009.

First ever meeting.

Boise State players during pregame.

Boise State started fast, gave up the lead, and scored in the last two minutes of the game to pull off a win over #6 Virginia Tech in one of the premier matchups of college football's opening weekend. The Broncos recovered a fumble on Tech's second snap of the game which led to a 44-yard Kyle Brotzman FG. Austin Pettis blocked a punt on Tech's next possession then caught an 8-yard TD pass from Kellen Moore 2 plays later to put the Broncos up 10–0. The Broncos extended their lead to 17–0 on their next possession on a diving 2-yard TD catch by Tommy Gallarda. The Hokies countered with 2 TD's in the second quarter while Kyle Brotzman added a 47-yard FG to make the score 20–14 at halftime. Virginia Tech opened the scoring in the second half on Ryan Williams second 1-yard TD run to give the Hokies a 21–20 lead. The Broncos answered quickly on their next possession with a D.J. Harper 71-yard TD run. The PAT would be blocked for a 26–21 Broncos lead. On the ensuing possession, the Broncos forced the Hokies to attempt a 51-yard field goal, which they missed badly. However, the Broncos were called for running into the kicker, gave the Hokies a 4th and 5 situation where they went for it and scored on a 28-yard TD pass yet failed on the 2-point conversion. A 34-yard Hokie FG put them up by 4 late in the fourth. The Broncos got the ball back with 1:47 left and no timeouts, needing a TD to take the lead. The Broncos would march the field in only 38 seconds, with the help of a personal foul penalty, and finished the game winning drive with a 13-yard TD pass from Moore to Pettis, their second connection of the game, to bring the final score to 33–30.

Boise State team about to take the field

Boise State's last trip to Laramie in 2006 saw the Broncos walk away with a hard fought 17–10 win. This game, however, would never be in doubt as the Broncos scored early and often on their way to a 51–6 win over their future Mountain West Conference counterparts. After an early Kyle Brotzman field goal, Shea McClellin fell on a bad Wyoming snap in the end zone for the Bronco defense's first touchdown of the season and a 10–0 lead. The Broncos next offensive possession only took 4 plays to go 93 yards and finished with a flea-flicker 58-yard touchdown pass from Kellen Moore to Austin Pettis. After Doug Martin's first rushing touchdown of the season, Kellen Moore would find Titus Young for a 49-yard touchdown reception. Another Brotzman field goal brought the score to 34–0 at halftime. The offense added another 17 points after halftime with Brotzman's third field goal, a 2-yard D.J. Harper touchdown run, and an 11-yard Jarvis Hodge touchdown run. Kellen Moore finished 20/30 for 370 yards, 2 TD's and 1 interception. Hunter White and Jeron Johnson recorded the Bronco's first interceptions of the season. The Broncos out gained Wyoming 648 to 135 total yards and held the Cowboy rushing game to -21 yards with the help of 4 sacks. Since the formation of the Mountain West Conference in 1999, Boise State has never lost a regular season game to a Mountain West team (their only loss to a Mountain West school was against TCU in the 2008 Poinsettia Bowl).

Boise State fans and the GameDay set inside of Bronco Stadium

ESPN's College GameDay broadcast from Bronco Stadium.[39] This was the first time that College Gameday broadcast from a Western Athletic Conference School. The game was broadcast nationwide on ABC, the first ever national network television broadcast of a regular season game in school history.

13,205 fans showed up before sunrise to watch ESPN's College GameDay live from inside Bronco Stadium and 34,137 showed up 11 hours later to break a Bronco Stadium attendance record and see the Broncos extend their winning streak to 17 games with a 37–24 win over Oregon State of the Pac-10. The Broncos went to their bag of tricks for their first score as Austin Pettis took a reverse pitch from QB Kellen Moore and threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to TE Tommy Gallarda. Oregon State tied the game on a 54-yard punt return for a touchdown by James Rodgers. After a Kyle Brotzman field goal, Kellen Moore found Austin Pettis for a 17-yard touchdown to bring the score to 17–7. After an Oregon State field goal, Moore then found Titus Young on a 49-yard touchdown where Young was so wide open that he backed into the endzone for a 24–10 halftime lead. Two personal foul penalties on the Bronco defense helped lead to Oregon State's first touchdown of the second half, but the Broncos offense answered just 2:51 later on Moore's third touchdown pass of 21 yards to Tyler Shoemaker. Oregon State kept the Bronco lead to just 7 with another touchdown when they fumbled in their own endzone but recovered. Another Brotzman field goal pushed the lead back to 10. Boise State got the ball back with 9:31 left to play and ran running back Doug Martin on 8 of the first 9 plays during an 11-play, 67-yard drive that ate up 7:17 off the clock and led to another Bronco field goal. The Bronco defense had 4 sacks on the night, including 2 on back-to-back plays on the Beavers' opening possession. Titus Young now leads the nation in all-purpose yards per game with 208.0 and Kyle Brotzman leads the nation in field goals per game with 2.67 a game.

11th meeting. 10–0 all time. Last meeting 2009, 42–7 Bronco win in Boise. With Boise State leaving the WAC, they are not currently scheduled to play each other again.

Boise State stayed undefeated all time against the Aggies of New Mexico State with a dominating 59–0 win. The scores came early and often for the Broncos as they scored 24 first quarter points on a Kyle Brotzman field goal and 3 rushing touchdowns (backup QB Mike Coughlin-15 yards, RB Doug Martin 1 yard, RB Jeremy Avery 18 yards). Kellen Moore added 2 2nd-quarter touchdown passes to Kyle Efaw (41 yards) and Doug Martin (28 yards) for a 38–0 halftime lead. Moore connected with Efaw again early in the 3rd quarter for a 26-yard touchdown. Backup QB Joe Southwick would take over for Moore and throw a 78-yard touchdown to Chris Potter for Southwick and Potter's first career touchdown. Jarvis Hodge's 54-yard touchdown run late in the game was his second touchdown on the season. Boise State recovered 2 fumbles and Ryan Winterswyk had an interception. Since New Mexico State joined the WAC in 2005, the Bronocs have outscored the Aggies 304–41 in 6 meetings and have shutout the Aggies 3 of the last 4 years.[41]

Boise State set a school record for consecutive wins (23) with their 12th straight win over their in-state rival in potentially their final meeting after games for 40 straight years. Boise State got on the board within the first minute of the game on a 76-yard punt return for a touchdown by Chris Potter.

The Broncos were shocked by their rival Nevada, ending the Broncos' 24-game winning streak, 35 straight regular season wins, 10 straight wins over the Wolf Pack, and dashed their dreams of going to another BCS game. The Broncos went up big early, scoring on a field goal, a 28 yard touchdown pass from Kellen Moore to Titus Young, and two Doug Martin rushing touchdowns from 4 and 51 yards to put the Broncos up 24–7 at halftime. The Bronco offense went away in the second half and Nevada's pistol attack ran all over the Boise State defense scoring 17 straight points to tie the game at 24 with about 5 minutes to play. On their possession after Nevada tied it up, Boise State answered on their first play with a 79 yard screen pass to Doug Martin to put the Broncos up 31–24. However, the Broncos scored too fast as Nevada would methodically march the ball down the field eating up 4:40 off the clock and tied the game at 31 with 13 seconds to play. After the kickoff, the Broncos had 9 seconds. Kellen Moore went deep and connected on a 53 yard pass to Titus Young to put the Broncos on Nevada's 9 yard line with 2 seconds to play. Kicker Kyle Brotzman had a 26 yard field goal attempt for the win. He missed. The Broncos got the ball first in overtime and were held to a field goal attempt, this time from 29 yards. Brotzman missed again. Nevada Kicker Anthony Martinez connected on a 33 yard field goal on the Wolf Pack possession to give Nevada their first win in the series since 1998.

The Broncos would fall in one poll and gain in another to finish the regular season #10 in every major poll. With the Pac-10 not having enough bowl eligible teams, Boise State was selected to take the Pac-10's spot in the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas to play #19 Utah.

#10 Broncos 0 16 7 3 26

7th meeting. 4–2 all time. Last meeting 2006, 36–3 Bronco win in Salt Lake City. The Broncos and Utes were scheduled to play in 2011, 2012, and 2013, but Utah bought their way out of the series in order to continue playing their rival BYU since both teams are leaving the Mountain West next season.

In a Matchup of the first two BCS busters, Boise State dominated after a slow start to win their first non BCS bowl game since 2003. The Broncos fumbled on their first possession of the game to give Utah a short field but held the Utes to a field goal attempt which they missed. After a Boise State punt, the Broncos recovered a Utah fumble, but failed to convert on a fake punt on their following possession. The Broncos' next possession also ended with no success when Kellen Moore threw his 6th interception of the season, which led to a Utah field goal, their only score of the game. The Broncos where held scoreless in the first quarter for the first time in 21 games. They turned the ball over again early in the second quarter when Kyle Efaw fumbled while trying to convert on fourth down. All of the Broncos early mistakes seemed to disappear when Doug Martin took the first play of their next possession 84 yards for the Broncos first score. The run was the longest play in the 19-year history of the Maaco/Las Vegas Bowl and the second longest run play in Boise State history. The Broncos scored again on their next two possessions with a 29 yard Kyle Brotzman field goal and 25 yard touchdown pass from Moore to Tyler Shoemaker to lead 16–3 at halftime. The Broncos opened the second half by recovering a fumble on Utah's first possession. The Broncos looked to be about to score a touchdown after Moore found Austin Pettis for 46 yards, but Pettis was stripped near the goal line and the ball went out of the endzone for a touchback. However, Moore and Pettis would connect on an 18 yard touchdown on the Broncos next possession. Another Ute fumble set up a 27 yard Brotzman field goal which was blocked. The Broncos added a 4th quarter 21 yard Brotzman field goal to bring the final score to 26–3. Despite turning the ball over 4 times, the Broncos gained 543 total yards. The Bronco defense gave up only 200 total yards and forced 3 turnovers and 4 sacks. Kyle Brotzman's 8 points helped set an NCAA record for most points in a career for a kicker with 439.
