Rockets mostly unfamiliar to Boise State

Ahead of Saturday's Boise State Homecoming football game, the Broncos are scouting out their opponent, the Toledo Rockets.
Broncos Head Coach Chris Peterson addressed the media on Tuesday, saying his team is focusing on Rocket receiver Eric Page. "(He's) a precise route runner. Looks like a really sharp, intelligent player," Peterson said of the Toledo sohopmore.
The coach said his staff doesn't know much about the Rockets, but back in the midwest, Toledo Head Coach Tim Beckman knows enough about the Broncos to rank them No. 3 in his coaches poll vote. "They didn't get jumped in my poll," Beckman told reporters Tuesday.
The Broncos dropped to No. 4 in the Coaches Poll after starting the season in the No. 3 spot.
The Rockets take on Boise State on Saturday, Oct. 9 in Boise. Kickoff is set for 8:07 p.m. ET at Bronco Stadium. Rocket fans can watch the game on Sports Time Ohio (Buckeye channel 32 or 646 HD, Time Warner channel 25 or 752 HD) or ESPN3.com.
