The Boise State Broncos are 3-0 and officially in the nation’s Top 25.
They have their sights set on an undefeated season, but taking the one-game-at-a-time approach leaves them with the Utah State Aggies in Week 5.
Utah State Aggies
The Utah State Aggies will find themselves at Albertsons Stadium Saturday night in a nationally televised contest against a Broncos team that is looking to prove it deserves more respect than being called one of the nation’s best second- or third-tier teams.
It won’t help the Aggies’ cause that the environment will be a hostile one — fans are hoping this team learned something about road environments during its 45-7 loss to USC in the second game of the year.
Utah State is 0-1 in Mountain West play after dropping their conference opener last weekend to the Air Force Falcons, 27-20. The Aggies played that game valiently, making it a contest despite being down 24-13 with about five minutes to go.
That said, turnovers proved to be too much.
Against the Broncos, Utah State must win the turnover battle if it wants to keep this one close. When you’re a heavy underdog, it may seem like you have nothing to lose.
But if you lose the football, you’re going to lose the game and it won’t even be close.
On offense, the Aggies are averaging 26.5 points per game to go along with the 382.3 yards.
Defensively, the Aggies are allowing 24.5 points per game and 337.5 yards.
Boise State Broncos
Boise State rejoins the Top 25 following its beatdown of the Oregon State Beavers last weekend.
The Broncos went into Corvallis, Ore. and won 38-24, and while its halftime lead of 31-7 didn’t hold up, the team was able to get the job done by collecting 512 total yards to Oregon State’s 287 by the time the final quarter came to a close.
Offensively, the Broncos are scoring an impressive 38 points per contest.
They’re totaling 505.3 yards per contest, and the guy to look out for at this point in the process is tailback Jeremy McNichols (7 rushing TDs, 124.0 rushing yards per game, 2 receiving TDs, 47.7 receiving yards per game).
Defensively, the Broncos are allowing just 20.7 points per game and 358.0 yards.
Boise State’s average point margin through four weeks is a strong 17.3 points per game in their favor.
Utah State’s average point margin through four weeks is 2.0 points per game in their favor.

With such a monumental spread attached to this contest, it’s easy to get baited into choosing Utah State against the spread.
After all, we saw the Broncos give up a big lead just last weekend against the Oregon State Beavers.
That said, if you’re looking at this contest in terms of matchups, the Broncos have the clear advantage in terms of talent and should have no problem gaining a big lead early and keeping it late.
