The most challenging stretch of Boise States season comes just as the Broncos have returned to the rankings.Four games in just 20 days await the 24th-ranked Broncos, beginning with Saturday nights matchup against Utah State.Hosting the Aggies is the start of a hectic stretch that will largely determine whether Boise State (3-0) is in the conversation for a major bowl game at the end of the season. After hosting Utah State, the Broncos play at New Mexico next Friday; host Colorado State on Oct. 15 and five days later host BYU.Following its successful run through two Pac-12 schools, knocking off Washington State 31-28 and last week winning handily at Oregon State 38-24, Boise State is back to being focused on the Mountain West Conference.Thats what these three games have been about is getting into Mountain West play and we certainly start with a very good team, Boise State coach Bryan Harsin said.And there could be no better opponent for Boise State to start with than the one that a year ago handed the Broncos their most lopsided loss in conference play since 2001.That was last years team. That was last years group that played in that game. This is a different team, different group, Harsin said. Certainly guys played in that game but its a completely different team and all you can do is go back and learn from it and say that doesnt really apply to what were doing right now. You certainly dont want to see that repeated. You learn from it and you move forward.Utah States 52-26 romp in Logan last October was a dozen years in the making, snapping Boise States 12-game winning streak over the Aggies. Utah State (2-2, 0-1) forced eight turnovers, scored 21 points during an 85-second span, and handed the Broncos their worst setback in a conference game since a 2001 loss to Rice when they were in the WAC.If we wouldve taken a loss to Boise State last year, I would take it personally. So, I would hope that they would, too, Utah State wide receiver Andrew Rodriguez said. But any game, especially going there and playing them, its going to be an interesting situation. Its going to be a privilege to play there and I hope its going to be a great game.Here are things to look for when Boise State plays its first game as a ranked team since mid-October of last season:JEREMY SPOKE: Boise State running back Jeremy McNichols is coming off the best game of his career with 208 yards rushing and four total touchdowns last week against Oregon State. It was McNichols second straight 100-yard game after a slow start in the season opener against Louisiana.McNichols missed last years game at Utah State due to injuries.I think we missed him in the pass game and running the football, too. ... When one of your better players isnt in, that shows up, Harsin said.TURNOVER PARTY: Utah State would love to replicate what it did last year against Boise State, forcing a school record-tying eight turnovers. The Aggies forced five fumbles and had three interceptions after Boise State entered that game with just six turnovers on the season.This season, Boise State has committed five turnovers in four games.LEARNING PROCESS: Brett Rypien was far better protecting the football against Oregon State after some lax moments in the victory over Washington State. Rypien was 19 of 36 for 215 yards and a touchdown against the Beavers. In his start versus Washington State, Rypien threw three interceptions, including two in the fourth quarter that gave the Cougars a chance to rally.INJURY CONCERNS: Utah State could be down two of its top players due to injuries, one on each side of the ball. Running back Devante Mays had just two carries last week against Air Force before aggravating an existing leg injury. Safety Dallin Leavitt injured his ankle in the third quarter against the Falcons.Mays is the Aggies leading rusher, but most of his yards came in the opener against Weber State when he rushed for 208 yards and three touchdowns. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Customized/ . The International Olympic Committee released the official list of bid cities on Friday after the deadline for applications had passed. The candidates -- all previously announced in their own countries -- are: Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; Krakow, Poland; Lviv, Ukraine; Oslo, Norway; and Stockholm. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Whitney-Mercilus-Jersey/ . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Tom-Savage-Jersey/ . However, he did make them miss him a little less. Cundiff, who had the unenviable job of replacing Dawson last season, agreed Thursday to a one-year, $1. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Xavier-Su-A-Filo-Jersey/ . -- Nathan Pancel scored twice as the Sudbury Wolves defeated the North Bay Battalion 4-2 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Cj-Fiedorowicz-Jersey/ . The Barrie Colts defenceman, who impressed many with his play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, is the top-ranked skater in the February rankings. He has 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points in 45 games with the Colts this season. The ICC is keen on having an edge-detection tool - Realtime Snicko, UltraEdge or HotSpot - to go with the existing ball-tracking tool as minimum requirements for DRS. However, that depends on the ICC cricket committee headed by Anil Kumble, and a planned meeting with the member boards in February 2017 to prepare a road map for the use of technology moving forward. For the ICC, the ideal outcome of the meeting will be some sort of agreement to have DRS for every Test no matter where it takes place, with the decided minimum requirements in place.As it stands now, DRS is employed even in those Tests where no edge-detection technology is available whereas India have been playing without DRS even with the required technology available. That India have agreed to use it on a trial basis against England is a step forward, but ICCs general manager of cricket operations Geoff Allardice knows there is some way to go.I look at matches in different parts of the world, and I see the different levels of technology and you see umpires are left without conclusive evidence in one series where in another series they might have conclusive evidence with all tools available, Allardice said. There are some logistical challenges as well about having every type of technology in every match but I think overall we should be striving for a more consistent delivery of technology at all international matches.Ball-tracking is standard in DRS at the moment, and we wont see that changing. I think you certainly need an edge-detection tool as a standard. If you go back to times gone by with the umpires listening to the stump microphone audio and trying to judge whether that was the sound of bat on ball or bat on pad or whatever, it was very difficult to make a decision [for the umpire] and also for the people watching at home to know what the umpire was thinking. And sound-based edge detection systems like Realtime Snicko and UltraEdge have simplified those kinds of decisions.HotSpot is another tool that helps in edge detection, and while Allardice said it has a lot to add to a DRS system, its inclusion posed logistical challenges. Indias home Tests against England, for example, could have had HotSpot but the BCCI was told it would take too long for the equipment to arrive in the country. The cameras used by HotSpot are high-end military cameras, whose shipping needs special permissions from governments.The BCCIs opposition to DRS arose from a perception that it wasnt 100% fool proof. Some other boards do not employ it because of the high cost of equipment. As such there has been pressure on the ICC to assume control of the system itself.dddddddddddd Allardice was open to the possibility.If we get the support of members for the ICC to take a greater role in providing consistent technology at every game, we think thats the right way to go forward. If we can map that out to the countries, and they like that, then the plan will be to start putting it in place. he said. Generally in DRS series, we deliver 98 to 99% correct decisions, and what that does is provide a consistency of correct decisions, whether the conditions are difficult for umpiring, or whether the umpire is having a good day or a bad day.There has also been protest against DRS because of the possibility of human error. When asked if the ICC might be interested in training people to operate the various technologies to assuage that concern, Allardice said it was the technology provider who was best placed to understand the nuances of the system and implement it correctly. He did, however, admit there was a need for the ICC to oversee operations.At this stage, I wouldnt see us wanting to be technology providers ourselves, because the expertise and product development work thats taken place over a long period of time, has been conducted by the technology providers. But I think there is a greater role for the ICC in the coordination of technology that goes to each match, and the oversight of the performance at matches.DRSs impact on the umpires is also a point of debate. In the Chittagong Test between England and Bangladesh, eight out of 18 decisions made by Kumar Dharmasena were overturned. Allardice said the number of incorrect calls an umpire makes factors into his assessment by the ICC, but he is judged over a longer term than just one match.Its quite a test for an umpire in those conditions, because you can often be making good umpiring decisions that are later proven to be incorrect, Allardice said. Like getting a glove on a sweep shot that then leads to an lbw being overturned.One of the skills of an umpire at all levels, whether there is DRS or not, is his resilience to mistakes. In the old days, you used to find out when you came off the field whether you had made a mistake or not, and now that feedback is a little bit more immediate. And being able to process feedback about your decisions, and then try to either use it to improve your decision?making, or to not let it affect your decision making, is the thing that determines an elite umpire from the next level down.
