Undefeated Boise State sporting young roster


Chris Petersen
For Boise State coach Chris Petersen, he'll have most of his roster back next season.

Boise State, in addition to being the second team to ever finish a season 14-0, also has the fewest number of seniors -- five -- on its roster among all FBS teams. And only three dressed for Monday's Fiesta Bowl victory over TCU. So, expect the Broncos to again be in contention next season.
