Football: Boise St. no longer sneaking up on anyone

-A A +A
By Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — It's been four years now, and Travis Hawkes is still amazed each day when he sees the pile of Boise State merchandise waiting to be shipped out.

When he was a kid, nobody wore Boise State gear. Even at Broncos games, maybe half the stadium would be dressed in blue and orange — and some of that was folks simply pulling out their blaze orange hunting jackets and calling it team spirit.

Now people all across the country want a spot on the Boise State bandwagon. The school that 15 years ago was playing in what was then Division I-AA, a team once known more for its funky blue field than its record, has emerged as college football's most unlikely powerhouse.

It has two undefeated seasons and just four losses over the last four years. Its 134-31 record since 1997 is the best of any school (sorry Florida, Texas and Ohio State). Its current 15-game winning streak is second-longest in the country.

And, now sitting in the third spot of the AP Top 25, the Broncos might just be the team that breaks the BCS once and for all.
