Boise State's season has been moved from Oct. 2 to Labor Day night.
In a move that was widely expected, Boise's game with Virginia Tech at FedEx Field has been moved from that date to Sept. 6. ESPN had been working on moving the game for a while. It means that we'll find out quickly whether Boise is a national contender. I stress that the Broncos' season is on the line. Beat the Hokies and the Broncos could be headed for another undefeated regular season.
They should start the season ranked in the top five. It will likely take that undefeated season to get the non-BCS Broncos to the national championship game in Glendale, Ariz. where they have twice won Fiesta Bowls.
Now the trick becomes finding FedEx Field for the first time since I covered USC-Virginia Tech a few years ago. The home of the Washington Redskins and is located in unincorporated Prince George's County, Maryland. Got a GPS?
