Boise State may play in Fort Worth Bowl

Dec. 3, 2003 at 5:02 PM   |   Comments

FORT WORTH, Texas, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Officials of the inaugural Fort Worth Bowl will have to wait for the results of pending games involving the Big 12 Conference.

Boise State has accepted a "conditional" bid to play TCU in the contest on Dec. 23. The bid is "conditional" since the Big 12 has the right of first refusal for the game. The league has eight bowl-eligible teams to fill its bowl allotment.

If two Big 12 schools secure berths in BCS bowls, the game then has the opportunity to invite the Broncos to play the Horned Frogs.

The Broncos, ranked 17th in this week's USA Today/ESPN coaches poll, and the Horned Frogs, at No. 19, both have records of 11-1. Boise State, one of the nation's most explosive teams, finishes its regular campaign on Saturday against Hawaii.

The Broncos have played in their own Humanitarian Bowl three times in the past five years, winning all three times, in 1999, 2000, and last year, when they drubbed Iowa State, 34-16.
