Following Boise State's thrilling 33-30 come-from-behind win, head coach Chris Petersen kept his emotions totally together with ESPN reporter Heather Cox.
All that Petersen would say is, "Game one...and that's what it is. We still got a lot of things to clean up. We have a ways to go."
Boise State outgained Virginia Tech 384 to 315 yards. Despite the loss of defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox in the off-season (Tennessee), the Broncos limited Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams to 42 yards on 21 carries.
Boise State's new defensive coordinator is Pete Kwiatkowski. What a night for Boise State and the Broncos' fans!
The Broncos are off next weekend, before traveling to Wyoming on September 18th.
