    It’s kind of hard to tell until Grant’s career is over, but if it were not for one miracle play Z would be known for ending every season he started with an interception to lose the game, as well as the meltdown against Georgia. Luckily, he, Drisan, and Rabb made that play and Z will forever be immortalized in Boise State lore. It is close, however I am going with Grant. I think big things still lie ahead for him this season. We will see.
