BOISE, Idaho — If everyone's heart hasn't gone through enough stress this week, the No. 21 Boise State Broncos hosted No. 9 BYU (7-0), the highest-ranked opponent to ever play on The Blue, on Friday night.
Unfortunately, Bronco Nation will likely only feel the heartbreak of losing and not heart-pounding victory after the Cougars' defense took advantaged of the Broncos' depleted quarterback depth and kept Boise State's offense from keeping the game close. Scroll down to see the latest score with KTVB's Game Tracker, warning for Bronco Nation, it isn't pretty.
Boise State entered Friday's rivalry game 2-0, with wins over San Jose State and Air Force.
BYU was 7-0, with their best win was against 4-2 Troy in week two. The Cougars beat the Trojans 48-7. In total, BYU's opponents this season are a combined 20-27. But the Cougars showed why they are among the top ten teams in the country with a solid showing on both sides of the ball.
