Virginia’s hammering of Boise State changes outlook for the season.

Each football weekend, I give you my reaction to handful of ACC games. I very rarely comment on games that I didn’t watch a good a portion of. Let me just say I wasn’t able to watch, but the final minutes of Virginia vs Boise State. I still had to write a game reaction, because frankly the final score is kind of stunning.

Virginia 43 Boise State 23 in Boise, Idaho.

Good for Virginia, Good for their fans, and Good for head coach Bronco Mendenhall. I didn’t have to watch this game to tell you how significant a victory this was for the long suffering program and fanbase.

Boise State 2017 might not be a vintage version, but they took a really good Washington State team to 3 OTs. In fact they should have won. The Broncos led the game 31-10 in the 4th qtr. Playing at Boise State is never easy, and what Virginia did is eye opening.

At 3-1, following a 2-10 season, the Hoos can start thinking bigger. No Clemson isn’t looking over their shoulder, and the Hoos aren’t winning the Coastal, but a bowl game is now a realistic goal. With Duke,  at UNC, Boston College, at Pitt, and Georgia Tech in their next 5 games, there isn’t one of those Virginia shouldn’t expect to compete in.

Something surrounds the Virginia program after this big win that we haven’t seen in years. That something is called hope.
