BOISE, Idaho (AP) - In the week leading up to Boise State's annual tussle with Fresno State, Chris Petersen becomes downright effusive about the level of respect he and his players have for the Bulldogs.
With a serious face and sincere tone, Petersen makes his case by pointing to the tight, physical battles of the past. He recounts how former Bulldogs coach Pat Hill set the competitive bar to new heights when Boise State joined the Western Athletic Conference in 2001.
Forget the fact the No. 24 Broncos (4-1, 1-0 Mountain West) have won six straight battles for the Milk Can, the last two by a combined 101 points, Petersen knows his team should be ready for a slugfest Saturday in Bronco Stadium in what could be the last meeting for quite some time between the two rivals.
