Broncos hope to use Oregon State game as ‘championship’

Boise State’s success against the Pac-12 could add another chapter Saturday when the Broncos take on Oregon State in Corvallis, Ore.

With a 9-3 record against the conference since 2006, Boise State has proven to be a thorn in the side year in and year out. Coming off a 31-28 win against Washington State on Sept. 10 and a subsequent bye, the Broncos are eager for another shot.

“It’s actually really big, because most people think we’re the underdog,” sophomore STUD Jabril Frazier said. “We just think of it like it’s the Pac-12 championship for us.”

The Broncos reported a productive bye week, and coach Bryan Harsin said he expects the team to be “full strength” at Reser Stadium.

“We went extra hard,” Frazier said.

Frazier, who met with the media Wednesday, has started the first two games, making eight tackles, including a sack.

“There’s been times where I feel I could have done better, but I feel like I’ve been doing good,” Frazier said.
