Same here. I was hoping the big three would all lose on Saturday, but of course that didn't happen.
As for Boise, I think it's more no one wants to play them home-and-home, making it tough for Boise State to schedule tough non-conference opponents. If only the NCAA would make some of the power teams (Florida for instance) stop scheduling early season cupcakes and make them say go to Boise and play them there (could you imagine if the Gators had to play on the blue turf at Boise State for instance?), then you could level the playing field somewhat.
If you make one team do it, you better make ALL teams do it. It isn't fair to single out the top teams for playing 1-AA teams when a lot of the smaller schools do as well (like Boise State scheduling Cal-Davis).
