Coach Chris Petersen is very much the architect of the Boise State football team, but obligations sometimes deny him from being as hands-on with the game plan as he would like to be.


Boise State football coach Chris Petersen will coach his 100th game as the Broncos’ head coach on Friday night at BYU (6 p.m., ESPN). Petersen is 89-10 as head coach.

“The guy gets us up to play the game as hard as possible. That’s why everybody’s like, ‘How does he do it? How does he do it?’ He gives us that edge to always play on an edge. He tells us, no matter what the opponent is, what their record is, just go out there and fight as hard as we can,” senior left tackle Charles Leno Jr. said.

Below is Petersen’s record vs. individual teams since becoming head coach in 2006:

Fresno State 7-1 Nevada 7-1
