*3 Star Play on San Jose State* The Boise State Broncos have been the best team in the Mountain West for many years. Boise State is still good again this year, but they aren't at the same level they have been in recent years. Boise State has had several key injuries and a lot of COVID issues during the seasons.
Boise State is +0.69 yards in the yards per play margin on the season. That is 38th best in the country. It might surprise you to find out San Jose State is +1.83 yards per play (9th in the country).
Boise State is only 60th in yards per play on offense. They have very little running game this year.
San Jose State is extremely well coached by Brent Brennan. The Spartans have allowed only 5 sacks this year, so it starts with a much improved offensive line for this team. San Jose State is 12th in the nation in yards per play on offense.
This San Jose State team has been playing at UNLV lately and this game is more of a home field for San Jose State than Boise State. Boise State has typically been playing these Mountain West title games at home.
I expect a close game here, and I'm glad to grab the points with a San Jose State team that has been underrated by the oddsmakers all year.
Take San Jose State.
