San Jose State vs Boise State Prediction  

Boise State really asserted themselves against Fresno State, and I believe they’ll have similar success here against San Jose State. If SJSU point guard Alvaro Cardenas misses this contest, it may be a long night for the visitors, as they’ve dropped ten of their last eleven games, and may head into this battle without their leader. The number is massive, but there’s little chance of an upset here, so let’s back Boise State this Tuesday.
