The Boise State football team’s trick play trifecta in the Fiesta Bowl is part of a larger national trend, ESPN.com’s Pat Forde writes.
Gambling is in across college football. Conservatism is out.
The story quotes Broncos coach Chris Petersen.
“We may have run five or six (trick plays) during the course of last year," Petersen said. "Guys think now we're all about trick plays. We're a standard, hard-nosed football team and 1 percent of the offense is trick plays.
"But we will call them. If we practice them during the week, they're going to get called. When we practice them the players are not thinking, 'He'll never call that.' Because we will."
The Broncos did not practice this morning. They will practice at 4 p.m. Check back this evening for an update.
