The total on this game is set far too high given how well both of these defenses have played and the fact that Boise State is playing with their back-up quarterback. It is going to take time for Grant Hedrick to get used to playing in the starting role, and for that reason the Broncos offense production should be slowed down a bit this week. Defensively Boise State has held opponents to 22.9 points per game while those opponents have averaged 27.8 points per game prior to facing the Broncos. Their defense is very undervalued.
The Cougars do not have a lot of explosive offensive talent. They have built up their scoring average thanks to a few teams that have had very soft defenses against the run. That is not the case with Boise State, as the Broncos have held opponents to a mere 3.5 yards per carry. The Cougars run the ball an average of 56 times per game out of 90 total offensive plays, making them a one dimensional team that Boise State should have no problem shutting down. The Cougars also have a tough defense. They have held opponents to 17.7 points per game this season and will be facing a back-up quarterback. Expect this matchup to turn into a defensive battle.
