A test of BSU's strength after defeat, injury

Boise State and the Warriors held a conference rivalry in the WAC starting in 2000, and continuing for a decade until the Broncos moved to the Mountain West in 2011.

During that time, Boise State went 9-1 against the Warriors, including a 4-1 performance on the road.

BSU comes into Saturday's game ranked no. 25 in the USAToday Coaches' Poll. However, the Broncos dropped from the AP Top 25 Poll after a 22-19 loss to San Diego State last week.

The Warriors are ranked 10th in the MWC, and have struggled to put points on the board in all but one game against Lamar University.

Coach Pete told members of the media that he expects the trip to Hawaii to test the Broncos' defense and offense on the heels of last week's performance.

That's because for the first time since 2007, the Broncos dropped from the BCSstandings. BSU also fell from the top spot in the MWC.

During Monday's news conference, Petersen also lamented the loss of several players who were sidelined last week, including injured nose tackle Mike Atkinson and defensive back Lee Hightower who was suspended.

Petersen says Hawaii may not have the best record, but he sees a team that can beat them.

Win or lose, we have to have an edge to us, or we're not going to play how we want to play, Petersen said.

The last time Boise State lost back-to-back games was 2007. Both those losses happened in Hawaii, and that happens to be where the Broncos play this week.

Go Broncos!
