Who has the best chance to finish undefeated after Week 2?

While Houston is the marquee Group of 5 team mentioned in playoff talk, what if three others from outside the Power 5 were to run the table as well? Don't dismiss it. It's a real possibility.

Boise State 31, Washington State 28 -- final. Despite 480 passing yards from Luke Falk, the Cougars are unable to come back. The Broncos notch a big win over a Pac-12 opponent and Washington State drops to 0-2 a season after winking 9 games.

Washington State bungles the clock -- they fail to use their remaining timeout -- and they now no longer have time to kick a FG. Hail Mary is the only option.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Washington State gets a massive interception. Luke Falk will get the ball with a chance to tie or win with 53 seconds left. Boise State leads 31-28 on ESPN2.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

There's been much talk of Washington State's improved run game -- they more than doubled their output on the ground last year -- but it's not visible tonight. The Cougars have failed twice on fourth and short, and their latest slip has Boise State firmly in control. It's 31-21 Broncos with time dwindling.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Boise State QB Brett Rypien, nephew of Washington State legend Mark Rypien who was once expected to commit to the Cougars and play for Mike Leach, is enjoying an efficient performance against his uncle's former program. Rypien is averaging over 10 yards per attempt, and the Broncos are knocking on the door of a TD to blow it open.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Falk to Martin: A big touchdown bomb generates some positive emotion from Mike Leach, who thrusts both arms into the air. Washington State cuts Boise State's lead to 24-14 by finally finding a big play in the pass game.

Rypien rips off a moonshot

Boise State's Brett Rypien hits a long bomb to Thomas Sperbeck for a 47-yard TD. The Broncos lead 24-7 late in the third quarter.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Boise State has grabbed firm control on the blue turf. They lead Washington State 24-7 in the third quarter, and that deficit feels particularly large considering that the Broncos have held the Cougars to only 5.4 yards per pass attempt.
