Kevin Kelley,

Boise State is the Gonzaga of 1-A fbs. They schedule a couple of strong nonconference Games with high enough Profile Programs, sometimes very high profile as in the case of the Seminoles, Ducks, maybe someone I’ve forgotten.
Then Boise State’s Goal is to play undefeated through the Conference, including the Championship Game, then get to the Playoff.
Now that UCincinnati has been to a playoff Game Boise State can shoot for that instead of a NY6 Exhibition Bowl.
The Autonomous 5 Conferences Glass Ceiling for Boise State has kept the Broncos from even making a NY6 Game since the 1st Season of the C ollusive F ive P rivilege Administration, LLC’s “expanded” Invitational in 2014.

UH-SJSU, UNR-UNLV and USU-BSU are fine on Thanksgiving weekend, but then the rest of the games should be AFA-CSU, UNM-UW, and FSU-SDSU.

Should be:
San Jose St.-Fresno St.
San Diego St.-Hawaii
Boise St.-Utah St.
Colorado St.-Wyoming
Air Force-New Mexico

These pairings for the most part have more history and are geographically closer.
