Boise State opens the season Thursday night in Atlanta to take on the Ole Miss Rebels. Here is how to watch that game.
Anyone who really needs this post was no prepared for the college football season, because every fan should know when and how to watch the game they want this week. Well, we will be nice and help everyone out with the details.
Before we get to that this is a huge game for both programs. Boise State is rolling out its new head coach in Bryan Harsin -- who by the way is not really a new head coach as he was the team offensive coordinator during all but one year of the Kellen Moore-era -- who is coming in from one year as the Arkansas State head coach where he won a Sun Belt title in his first and only year. Getting a win over Ole Miss would solidify the choice for the Broncos to hire its former offensive coordinator.
Hugh Freeze is looking to make Ole Miss a contender in the difficult SEC West and his team is off to a good start as they are ranked in the top 20 in both the coaches and AP preseason polls. While a win over Boise State may not be considered a huge win for the Rebels amongst the casual college football fans, it will be considered a quality win for Ole Miss since Boise State has a track record of winning these types of games.
