The time for rest will come later this week when Kellen Moore can make his way back to his Prosser, Wash., home. Just not yet. Not with another city to see and another piece of business to handle.
Timing is everything, whether it be the stock market, a long-lost love interest or the date of a college football game. For instance, if Boise State had played Utah at a neutral site in early November when the then-undefeated Broncos were riding...
TEMPE, Ariz. -- Missouri didn't reach its goal of getting into a BCS bowl and was headed to the desert to face a 7-5 team that had lost its final three games of the season. Sensing potential apathy for a bowl against a ho-hum opponent played halfway...
Boise State and UNR received their desired bowl invitations, and the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas and Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl received the buzz they hoped for with their selections.
The MAACO Bowl Las Vegas is finding it can thrive without Brigham Young. Having Boise State in the game, of course, doesn't hurt. The Dec. 22 matchup between the 10th-ranked Broncos and No. 20 Utah has created brisk ticket sales.
Tenth-ranked Boise State (11-1) on Sunday accepted an invitation to play No. 20 Utah (10-2) in Las Vegas' annual bowl game Dec. 22 at Sam Boyd Stadium. The Utes had accepted their invitation Wednesday.
SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah starting quarterback Jordan Wynn will have shoulder surgery and miss the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas on Dec. 22, coach Kyle Whittingham announced Saturday. Whittingham said Wynn had an MRI on Friday night after experiencing shoulder...
BOISE, Idaho -- It took just one play for Boise State linebacker Derrell Acrey to help erase all the pain and misery from the meltdown against UNR that dashed the Broncos' BCS dreams a week ago. On the first play from scrimmage Saturday, Acrey...
Utah is in, Notre Dame is out, and Boise State or UNR might be on the way. The MAACO Bowl Las Vegas selected No. 21 Utah (10-2) on Wednesday as its Mountain West Conference representative. The Utes could face No. 9 Boise State (10-1) or No. 14 UNR (...
The MAACO Bowl Las Vegas has slightly increased its payout, and the game has new four-year agreements with the soon-to-be Pac-12 and Mountain West conferences. It just doesn't know if it will have a Pac-10 team this season. Southern California's...

If a year ago, Brigham Young's football team showed up disinterested, on Tuesday night, the Cougars were more than ready to play.
HOW THEY SCORED
Dennis Pitta admits Brigham Young was "a little flat" in last year's bowl appearance in Las Vegas, a 31-21 loss to Arizona. ... But the Cougars senior tight end insists tonight's game will be a different story. ... No. 15 BYU (10-2) faces 16th-ranked Oregon State (8-4) in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas at 5 p.m. before a sellout crowd at Sam Boyd Stadium. ...

Under the best of circumstances, Oregon State would have its hands full trying to defend Brigham Young quarterback Max Hall.

Thankfully, things might not be as crazy around here as I feared last week.
