Many experts felt that if Boise St. defeated the Oregon Ducks in a playoff type game, they would solidify their chances at a BCS bowl invitation. But following their 19-8 victory, the team is still without a BCS bid.

"We worked our tails off, and for what?" said Boise St. head coach Chris Peterson. "We are undefeated, and we've beaten a ranked opponent from a BCS conference. But has anyone called from the Fiesta Bowl, the Orange Bowl, or the Sugar Bowl? No. I don't know what else we can do. The system needs to be fixed."

The Boise St. Broncos have done all that they could do, and yet remain on the outside, looking in. This controversy will surely add fuel to the fire for those in favor of a playoff system.
