Boise State-Virginia Tech equals highest-rated ESPN college football game since 1994

Boise State is keeping up with the big boys in television ratings, too.

The non-BCS conference Broncos' statement victory over Virginia Tech on Monday night matched last year's Southern California-Ohio State thriller as the highest-rated college football game on ESPN since 1994.

Boise State's come-from-behind 33-30 win earned a 7.3 rating. That ties USC-Ohio State as the best since Florida State-Miami 16 years ago.
