The Boise State Broncos will play the UTEP Miners in a non-conference game on Friday night at the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas.

The Boise State Broncos are 2-1 this season after they defeated UT Martin by a score of 30-7 in their last game. Boise State held UT Martin to 152 yards and finished the game with 23 unanswered points. The Boise State offense is averaging 25.7 points per game with 186.3 passing yards per game and 132.3 rushing yards per game. Hank Bachmeier has thrown for 404 yards, five touchdowns, and three interceptions for the Broncos this season. George Holani has rushed for 186 yards and one touchdown, while also catching 11 passes for 96 yards and two scores for Boise State. Latrell Caples has caught 10 passes for 93 yards and two touchdowns for Boise State. The Boise State defense is allowing 18.3 points per game and 248.3 yards per game.

The UTEP Miners are 1-3 this season after they lost to New Mexico by a score of 27-10 in their last game. UTEP outgained New Mexico 353-299, but turned the ball over seven times and went 2-5 on fourth down conversions in the game. The UTEP offense is averaging 14 points per game with 258.3 passing yards per game and 74.3 rushing yards per game. Gavin Hardison has thrown for 970 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions for the Miners this season. Ronald Awatt has rushed for 225 yards and two scores, while Tyrin Smith has caught 27 passes for 437 yards and two touchdowns for UTEP. The UTEP defense is giving up 29 points per game and 263 yards per game.

Boise State is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games on turf and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 road games. The under is 9-1 in Boise State’s last 10 games. UTEP is 8-17 ATS in their last 25 home games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 Friday games. The under is 4-0 in UTEP’s last 4 games.

UTEP has struggled this season and their only win was against New Mexico State. UTEP managed to commit seven turnovers in their last game and score only 10 points with 353 total yards. The Boise State defense should shut the UTEP offense down, while the offense should have no issues scoring. I like Boise State to win this game by a few touchdowns.
