New perspective for Bronco Nation

New perspective for Bronco Nation
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Saturday night's loss to San Diego State changed the post season landscape for Bronco Nation. Before kickoff, there was still a chance Boise State could sneak into a BCS Bowl Game, but after a 21-19 loss to the Aztecs the Boise State can kiss that dream goodbye.

The trouble started on the opening kickoff when Mountain West Conference Special Teams Player of the week Colin Lockett, showed why the Mountain West picked him as their special teams player of the week; he's pretty special.

The problem for Boise State was execution, and making little mistakes. Little flubs plagued the Broncos all night long, and that can't happen if they're going to win.

"You know, I think always, the closest games by the smallest details, and it sure showed up. It's fundamentals, it's missing tackles, it's not playing smart and hitting a guy out of bounds, that's huge stuff," said Boise State head coach Chris Petersen.

"I think it's one or two things that might just slip up in the play, or might be wrong or wrong leverage on one guy and it just kind of blows up the play, and so I think it's one of those things where we can just hone in on those things that we need to fix, and go back to 'em and carry that on next week," added senior wide receiver Chris Potter.

The Broncos continue Mountain West Conference play his Saturday when they head for Hawai'i to play pigskin in paradise.

Kickoff at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu is scheduled for 5 pm (MTN) and you can catch the game on the NBC Sports Network.
