Boise, ID - Dec. 28, 2005

Jim Donnan As in earlier games against Georgia and Fresno State, Boise State had trouble against the big, physical Boston College team. The Broncos couldn't handle the Eagles' size advantage early in the game. But Boise made enough plays to get back in the game and the blue-field magic almost worked again. BC should get lots of credit for its six straight bowl wins -- that is not easy to do. QB Matt Ryan looked very good and should have the Eagles in the thick of the ACC race in 2006. -- Jim Donnan
