That ranking was all thanks to the 7-1 conference record that the Broncos turned in this season.
"It seemed just for me and us a no-brainer", Boise State director of esports Chris Haskell said.
In a contest featuring talent that could be seen in the near future on Sundays, the two teams have experienced seasons marked by inconsistencies and quarterback shakeups. Tyree Robinson would pick off Brett Rypien in the end zone and proceed to take the ball 100 yards to the house. Defensively, Oregon is allowing 28.3 points and 359.8 yards per game.

The Owls will use running back Devin Singletary (1,796 yards, 29 TDs) early and often in an effort to grind the clock and get him 2,000. It won't help the Knights in their Peach Bowl matchup against the rested Tigers, who when fully loaded are talented and balanced enough to beat any team in the country. The teams' contrasting turns in momentum will be noticeable in the Citrus Bowl, as the Irish struggle to find success against a superior Tigers team.
