The Fiesta Bowl game pits two teams against one another that are both fighting for respectability. The Boise St Broncos and the TCU Horned Frogs both finished the season unbeaten and the winner of this game could conceivably argue that they deserve a piece of the national Championship. 

Boise St. Broncos finished the year undefeated and beat the Pac 10 champion Oregon Ducks but they have not gotten much respect. The schedule was weak and for that they slipped in the polls as other undefeated media darlings passed them up along the way. One of those media darlings is the TCU Horned Frogs. 

The Frogs were undefeated and the polls awarded them with a #3 ranking and teams are lining up to play them next year. They rewarded backers at the window with an 8-4 ATS record and flexed a powerful defense against some packed offenses in the Mountain West. 

The BCS failed the fans miserably by putting these teams together but one of these teams will have a good argument when this bowl game is over. This game will be a difference maker for the Broncos. They can prove the critics wrong and they can beat the team that stole the spotlight from them. The Broncos are 36-15-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record; they are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 bowl games as an underdog and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games. Boise St takes center stage and proves to the critics that they should be considered among the best in the country. 

Fiesta Bowl Pick: Boise St +7.5
