In a game where Boise State was considered an underdog to the media and Vegas Lines, the Broncos walked into the Liberty Bowl with something to prove. A massive chip on their shoulder, even though they had a Top 10 ranking.
Louisville was a high powered offense led by an effective quarterback, and a coach that would spend some time at SEC member, Arkansas.
One of the most famous plays in Bronco history was linebacker Andy Avalos interception of a pass in the red zone and took it to the house to put the Broncos up in the first quarter.
Even though the Broncos lost this one, it was a great effort from the young squad. Boise State 40 Louisville 44.
