A Mountain West showdown in Las Vegas, Nevada takes place Saturday afternoon when the Boise State Broncos come into town and face off with the UNLV Rebels.
The Boise State Broncos are looking to keep fighting for that New Years Six bowl game after coming off of a 34-14 win over the Wyoming Cowboys.
For the Rebels they are trying to turn around their season after posting a 2-5 record thus far and losing two straight as well, respectively against Fresno State and San Jose State.
With another dominant season besides the two missteps in Provo and Logan, Utah, the Broncos are having another great season and one for the record books as well.
With Sophomore Jeremy McNichols having a breakout season with 16 touchdowns in 7 games, just a year after star Jay Ajayi bolted for the NFL after he rewrote the record books breaking the all time record for touchdowns in season.
True Freshman and highly recruited QB Brett Rypien is also having a great season. After taking over the reigns from red shirt sophomore Ryan Finley when he went down with a broken ankle, Rypien has been absolutely sensational.
Putting up huge numbers in only 4 games started he has 10 touchdowns and almost 1500 yards to go along with it.
Expect the Broncos to break out of the gates quick here and show the Rebels they mean business early on.
As for the Broncos Defense, hobbled with injuries to starters in the secondary, look for them to still dominate up front and take over the game from the first whistle.
Although Donte Deayon, who is one interception shy of tying the Mountain West record for interceptions in a career, will be on the sidelines for about a month after undergoing knee surgery. The Broncos still have an outstanding front 7 and will look to dominate in the trenches on Saturday.
For the Rebels on Saturday they are just trying to gain some momentum going forward. With an inexperienced Sophomore QB at the helm and no real rushing attack to note, it will be tough sledding for them in this game.
Basically outmatched by a big Boise State team that is hungry to get some wins on the board and compete for the Mountain West Title. The Rebels have just been devastated by injuries on both sides of the ball, losing a QB and other defensive stars as well to date.
Look for the Rebels to try to get the crowd into the game to start it off and try to hang in there with a gutsy Boise State team.
If you let this young team hang around and gain confidence the sky is the limit, no real scouting report Boise can go off of so they really have the whole playbook at their fingertips.
With a couple of good games under his belt QB Kurt Palandech is gaining more and more confidence with each game.
With 6 TD’s in the air, the Rebels will heavily lean on him for their offense on Saturday.
