4* Fresno St/Boise St Winner: Boise St -7
It's time to jump back on the Boise State bandwagon. The Broncos have won four straight since losing on the road to Michigan St in the season opener.
While the Boise St offense has taken some time to get on track, the defense has played much better than I think anyone expected. It's really not all that surprising to see the offense struggle early after losing one of the school's all-time great quarterbacks in Kellen Moore.
Not to take anything away from Fresno St, but they are not as good as the numbers would indicate. They have played a very soft schedule up to this point, with four wins coming over the likes of Weber St, Colorado, San Diego St and Colorado St.
The Bulldogs have simply not played well at Boise State recently. The last time they made their way to the blue turf, they were shutout 51-0 in 2010. It wasn't much better in 2008, losing 61-10 and 2006 45-21.
When the Broncos have struggled offensively this year they have not been able to run the football. I don't see that being a problem on Saturday. Fresno St is giving up 149.7 ypg on the ground, which is a very poor number considering the lack of talent they have played outside of Oregon. The Broncos are going to be able to move the chains and put points on the board. In the end Boise should win this game by at least two scores if not more. BET BOISE STATE!
