The Boise State will visit the Oregon State Beavers on Saturday night from Reser Stadium in this matchup from Corvallis, Oregon. The weather is expected to be 72 degrees and partly cloudy. These programs last met in 2016 in a game Boise State won 38-24.

The Boise State Broncos finished 7-5 last season, going 5-3 in the Mountain West Conference.They are the favorites to win the MWC Mountain Division based on the preseason poll. 

Hank Bachmeier should have a big senior season as he returns. He accumulated 3,079 passing yards accompanied by a 20:8 TD to INT ratio in 2021. The Boise State Broncos also have a strong RB in George Holani. The junior collected 569 yards on the season.

The pass defense landed 32nd while the rush defense was 78th overall. The Boise State Broncos averaged 29.2 points last season, ranking them 62nd overall. The defense limited other schools to only 19 points, good for 12th in the FBS. 

The Oregon State Beavers won every home game last season but finished 7-6 and 5-4 in the PAC-12 North. The Oregon State Beavers were voted to finish 5th in the preseason media poll.

Chance Nolan is the likely starter for this year. The junior QB recorded 2677 passing yards and a 19:10 TD to INT ratio last season. Senior WR Tre’Shaun Harrison will look to build on last year’s 401 receiving yards. 

The pass defense ranked 87th while the rush defense was 55th. Oregon State earned 32.8 points last year, landing them 35th overall. The defense allowed an average of 25.9 points, placing them 65th in the FBS.

The under is 7-0 in Broncos last 7 games overall and is 5-1 in Beavers last 6 non-conference games.

The Boise State Broncos are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in September and are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. Although the Oregon State Beavers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. MWC and are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in September, I like the Boise State Broncos here to keep this one close.
