BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Boise State's most recent defeat has put coach Chris Petersen and his players in some unfamiliar territory.
Fresno State rallied late Friday and pulled out a 41-40 victory, handing the Broncos their second loss. For Boise State, it marked the first time since 2005 the team has suffered a second defeat before the month of November rolled around.
Despite reaching such a dubious milestone, players insist there is no reason to panic.
Defensive end Beau Martin says there is plenty of time to turn things around and meet lofty preseason goals. Martin also says there is no sense of panic — and players and coaches alike are eager to be back at work this week.
