Be prepared to hear quite a bit about the Western Athletic Conference this year. Just as Utah made a commanding run into the BCS Top Five last season out of the lowly Mountain West, the WAC features a pair of clubs that could do some serious damage to the bowl hopes of schools in the major conferences.
According to the USA Today preseason poll, the WAC is home to two of the top 26 teams in the country. Boise State is currently ranked No. 19 in the nation, and Fresno State is No. 26. Fresno State is a mere four points out of the Top 25 (188 pts. to Pittsburgh's 192 pts.). Not too shabby.
Boise State has a chance to make its presence felt on the national scene early on this fall. The Broncos travel to face SEC powerhouse Georgia in Athens on Sept. 3. If they manage to win that game, they should be undefeated by the time the square off against the Bulldogs in early November.
