Can any other coach boast a bet­ter four-year span to open a ca­reer than Chris Peter­son? His Bron­cos are 49-4 over that pe­riod, and he’s the only coach in col­lege his­tory to win the Bear Bryant Award twice. Com­ing off a 14-0 sea­son and the Bron­cos’ sev­enth WAC ti­tle in four years, some see them as among the fa­vorites to win the na­tional cham­pi­onship.

Petersen’s im­print since he moved up from of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor is mea­sured in num­bers. Last year’s team led the nation in points per game (42.3) and fewest sacks al­lowed (5). When Boise State up­set Ok­la­homa 43-42 in the 2006 Fi­esta Bowl — his first year as head coach — who knew that was only an ap­pe­tizer for bet­ter things to come?
