Boise State vs San Diego State Prediction  

We’ll receive a potential conference championship preview when San Diego State hosts Boise State for their season finale. Both schools enter on the heels of losses, but with the Aztecs carrying a veteran group, and this being senior night, I like swaying their way for this contest. Each team defends well, so the Under may be in play, but let’s back SDSU at home for this MWC clash.
