5. Boise State

Okay, this one is out of left field. The Broncos have been one of the better teams over the past decade or so in college football, and pulled off one of the greatest upsets in history when they beat Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl in 2007.

They are most noted for their blue field, the “Smurf turf”. I’d be interested in seeing Mizzou go up there just to see how they would look on that field.

These two teams have never met before, so why not make it happen?

The Broncos haven’t held a losing record since 1997, when Houston Nutt was their head coach. They have undoubtedly been one of the more consistent programs over the last two decades.

With Mizzou hoping to become a contender again, why not add an interesting non-conference opponent like the Broncos?

One thing we know about the Broncos, is that they will play anyone, anywhere, anytime. They have played out-of-conference games at Georgia, Virginia Tech, and others during their time in the national spotlight.
