BOISE -- Front page, center, and above the fold. That is where the Boise State Broncos are featured in Friday's regional issue of USA Today.

While the Broncos were ranked fifth in USA Today's preseason college football coaches' poll Friday, the headline of the paper's top story asks the question, Is it Boise State's time?

The fans will surely argue 'yes' while other teams will spend their seasons trying to spoil Boise State's plans for another run at a BCS bowl game or even the national championship.

Last year, the Broncos were ranked 16th in the same preseason poll.

Quarterback Kellen Moore is pictured on the front page. He is one of 22 returning starters from last season.

The article highlights Boise State's successes, as well as their traditions -- including the famous blue turf.

The Broncos begin their last season as part of the WAC September 6th against Virginia Tech at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.

Bronco Nation is gearing up for an unprecedented season, with hopes of a national championship title before the blue and orange begin a brand new chapter joining the Mountain West Conference next year.
