Maddux Madsen completed 9 of his 16 passes for 155 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Ashton Jeanty finished with 24 carries for 167 yards. Boise State is averaging 29.7 points while their defense is giving up 30.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 69th and it’s going to need to be the offense to be good here.

Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi completed 26 of his 57 passes for 225 yards and three interceptions. He needs to figure out the interception issues or it’s going to be a long game.

Shane’s Free Pick

Colorado State’s defense gave up 44 points in the last game and they are going to really struggle again in this game. Boise State is averaging only 29.7 points per game but they are going to go over that number here. Colorado State’s offense is fine, but they aren’t going to be keeping up and that is going to be the difference as Boise State is going to get the job done. Back Boise State against the spread. 

Shane’s Pick Boise State -7.5
