Boise State Leads LSU 17-13

Thomas Bropleh's three-pointer has given Boise State a 17-13 lead in the first half.  About 7 minutes left.

Update:  LSU went on a surge to take the halftime lead 25-22.  The difference in the game has been free throws as Boise State has been called for 9 fouls to just 4 for the home team.  Boise State has not attempted a single free throw in one half's worth of play.  I could say I'm shocked when actually I'm not surprised in the least.

Remember that all football-related material is on our sister blog Blue Football Through and Through.  I'll continue to provide highlights of the football team here, but that site is more sport-specific.

Boise State about to tip off with LSU

The Bronco basketball team has been winning, but they'll need to win in SEC country to keep that streak going.  Boise State and LSU are about to tip off.

Potter Named to NFWA All-America Team

Boise State offensive tackle Nate Potter was named today to his second All-America team--this time the Football Writers Association tabbed the Bronco senior to its All-America squad.  Earlier, Potter was named to the First Team.

Despite being the top quarterback in the nation (Touchdown Club of America), Boise State signal-caller Kellen Moore was not selected, with the writers opting for Robert Griffin III from Baylor.
