The Boise State Broncos and Utah State Aggies face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Maverick Stadium. 

Boise State Looks to Become Bowl Eligible 

Boise State comes into this game with a 5-5 record overall and with a win here they will become eligible. In the last game against New Mexico, Boise State scored 42 points and that was enough for the easy victory. Maddux Madsen had a strong game putting up 202 yards and two touchdowns. After the game though, the Broncos fired head coach Andy Avalos. Boise State is averaging 31.2 points while their defense is giving up 27.4 points per game. In this game, Boise State needs to be the team that gets out to a fast start. 

Utah State Looks for Third Straight Win

Utah State comes into this game with a 5-5 record and they have won two games in a row. In the last game against Nevada they scored 41 points and that was enough for the victory. It was  17 points in the second quarter that was the difference. Cooper Legas was a bit inconsistent, but he made enough winning plays. Legas completed 18 of his 33 passes for 182 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions. Utah State is averaging 35.5 points while their defense is giving up 32 points per game. The defense at times has been an issue and they are going to need to step up on that side of the ball here. ‘

Shane’s Free Pick

There isn’t going to be a whole lot defense played by either side in this game. Boise State is averaging 31.2 points per game and now they get to face off against a Utah State defense that is giving up 32 points per game. Utah State’s offense has been strong all season and they are going to have no issue running up the score again here. This game could go over 80 points. Back the over to cash here.
