So that was fun. Thumping Boise State by 32 points and handing them their worst loss in eight years isn't a bad way to get revenge on those over-achieving potato-munchers. In 93 games under head coach Chris Petersen, BSU had never been dominated like this. Not even close. The previous worst loss of the Petersen era was the 24-10 victory at UW that Ty Willy somehow managed in 2007. And the last time Boise failed to scored a touchdown was way back in '97.
Frankly, BSU fans have gotten all kinds of spoiled feasting on the Mountain West's cupcake schedule while be remarkable successful in their 2-3 difficult games each year. This clown-stomping gives Boise a sneak peak of what life would be like playing in the Pac-12 week in and week out (See: Utes, Utah). Who knows how BSU fans are coping with this thrashing, but then again, who cares.

What a sweet way for Husky Nation to christen the gorgeous new stadium and inject excitement into a program that has been struggling to take that next step. Yes, it's just one game and we don't want to get ahead of ourselves, but UW definitely made a statement on Saturday night. Dropping 592 yards while allowing 6 points to a Chris Petersen team just doesn't happen. It's not hard to imagine this new fast-paced, quick-hitting offense having success against Stanford and this deep, well-conditioned defense limiting Nike U's offense. Oh, and now the best tight end in the country rejoins the team.
