Boise State dominated Wyoming in their first matchup and it’s hard to image that the Broncos won’t be able to do the same thing as they should have a huge advantage on the boards and their 35th ranked scoring offense should have no trouble putting up points against a Wyoming defense that ranks just 277th in scoring defense & 263rd in defensive FG%. Wyoming is led by their offense, however, it’s struggled over the past two games, combining for just 121 points, and as I think Boise State will come out strong in this one, I think the Broncos do enough to cover this double-digit road spread. Good Luck!
