Boise State And BYU Step Into Friday Night Spotlight

Oct 24, 2013 11:37 PM EST

It almost makes you sad to think how close we came to having a premier Mountain Division matchup between Boise State and BYU every single year. 

Now?

It's just another Friday night game that has the potential to be a thriller. Boise State was on the wrong end of a Friday night showcase game earlier in the year when they fell to Fresno State, 41-40, back in September. 

The Cougars don't have a signature win on their resume and while BSU isn't a BCS-buster this year, they're still a good team with a big name. 

So instead of lamenting what could have been, perhaps its best we just enjoy the Friday night fireworks.
