Because you look at the rest of their schedule. Tell me a ranked team Boise St or Ball state beat. Bosie beat Oregon but had a cucake conference. Ball state beat no one and had a cucpcake conference. If they want to BCS crash then they should schedule tougher
OK, let's look at Utah then.
Beating Oregon State was a solid W, granted. But they did that at home, and had to score 11 points in the last minute to do it. Oregon State, with that loss, dropped to 2-3.
That is the ONLY sold W on their schedule outside of their conference. They squeaked by a horrible Michigan team by 2. They crept by TCU at home by 3, needing a last second touchdown to pull it off. Beat the pants off a disappointing BYU team. They blew out a bunch of bad teams besides that, granted, but they were all BAD teams.
Boise State beat then-#17 Oregon on the road by 5, and it wasn't even that close. Oregon had to score 19 points in the 4th quarter to close the gap.
IMO, that's a more impressive win than anything that Utah did this year before bowl season.

I bet you they would have been undefeated if they played in the ACC, Big East, and Big 10.
If a team from any of these conferences goes undefeated in the regular season and then absolutely clubs a 1-loss SEC team (who was also #1 for half of the season), they would be the national champion with no questions asked.
fwiw, the ACC and Big East are doing ok in the bowls. Much better than the Big 10, who seems to be showing they are the weakest BCS conference...
