Another One Goes Down To Boise State, Broncos Bust Bulldogs

What more do you want Boise State to prove that the Broncos are among the elite in college football.

Saturday night Boise State came to Atlanta to take on the Georgia Bulldogs. Once again the Broncos rose to the occasion defeating the Bulldogs 35-21.

This is another milestone in the history of Boise State football. The Broncos had never beaten a team from the SEC in four tries. With the win over Georgia Saturday night Boise State has accomplished that.

It was a hard fought physical game," said Boise State head coach Chris Petersen in a post game press conference.

"Congrats to Boise State. They just beat us tonight. They were better than we were," Georgia head coach Mark Richt said in a post game press conference. ''But SEC play hasn't even started. It's a long season. We've got to get our minds right. A game like this, no question, we know more about our football team than if we played someone and beaten them by 40. Hopefully that translates into us learning how to play better in these type of games and better see where our weaknesses are.''

You think next weeks South Carolina game is important now for Georgia? Richt and the Bulldogs will be feeling the pressure to avoid an 0-2 start. That might make Richt's backside a lot hotter.

Kellen Moore established himself as the early front runner in the Heisman Trophy race. Moore was outstanding against the Bulldogs going 28-34 passing for 261 yards and three touchdowns.

''Growing up watching football, I have a ton of respect for the SEC,'' Moore said after the game. "I watched Georgia play a lot of big games growing up. To play a game like this was a lot of fun. I enjoyed it. We were fortunate to come out on top.''
