Some WAC love

I admit I am a BCS snob. I like my traditional college football programs.

That being said, I was pulling for Boise State in overtime last night.

Nothing against Oklahoma. But when you give up a touchdown on a fourth-and-18 hook-and-ladder played with 7 seconds left, you don't deserve to win.

And I was wanting Boise to go for two points because it's easier to get it on one play than it is driving for a touchdown. The Statue of Liberty play was an absolutely great call.

Congratulations to Boise State. A ho-hum Fiesta Bowl turned into an all-time classic.

The good news for the WAC is it is elevating itself away from some of the so-called mid-majors. The bad news for Louisiana Tech is keeping up with the WAC may be more difficult now than when the Bulldogs first entered the league.

Still, competition will only make Tech better.

We may have to redo our bowl rankings from the preview edition after watching the Fiesta and Orange bowls. Looks like the Sugar and BCS championship game have two hard acts to follow.
