Boise State vs. Southern Miss Game Notes
Boise State football travels to Hattiesburg, Miss., to face Southern Miss Saturday, in the Broncos’ final nonconference game of the regular season at Roberts Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 10 a.m. (MT) and will be televised locally on ROOT Sports NW.
The Broncos (3-1, 1-0 MW) have won both meetings in the all-time series with the Golden Eagles (0-4, 0-1 C-USA). The first game was a 38-16 contest Sept. 27, 2007, at Bronco Stadium. Boise State traveled to Hattiesburg Oct. 11, 2008, coming out with a 24-7 victory.
The game against Southern Miss will be the earliest start time for a Boise State game since Nov. 13, 2004, at San Jose State. The Broncos and Spartans kicked off at 10:02 a.m. (MT). Boise State prevailed in that game 56-49 in double overtime after Gerald Alexander blocked a potential game-winning field goal by San Jose State with 1:07 to play in regulation.
The Broncos open the October portion of their schedule with an impressive recent history during the month. Boise State has won 44-straight October games, a streak that dates back to 2001. Their last loss in the year’s 10th month came Oct. 6, 2001, at Rice, 45-14. Boise State also has a strong history against members of Conference-USA.
The Broncos are 17-2 all-time in games with current C-USA members. However, this marks just the seventh game Boise State will play against a school while it is in the conference. Many of the previous meetings with current C-USA members were league matchups in the Western Athletic Conference. The Broncos are 5-1 in actual games against C-USA members.
After the 32-29 win at New Mexico, the Broncos returned to the USA TODAY Coaches’ Poll at No. 25. Boise State fell from the Associated Press Poll after the victory.
