This year will be one that tests the strength of the program. A lot of change could mean a fall but this is Boise State after all.
2019 Boise State Broncos Predictions: Team Strengths
Defense: The offense is looking to replace a ton so the defense will have to lead the way. That is where the returning talent is.
STUD DE/LB Curtis Weaver is on a great pace to become the leading sacker in the history of the program. The only thing holding him back might be leaving for the NFL early.
This defense was really strong against the run last season and should be again with lots of returning production up front. They need to help out a pass defense that is just mediocre.
They are going to be looking to create as much havoc up front as possible to create turnovers. Boise State really struggled with that last season.
The O Line: There is returning experience at every spot along the line heading into this season.
There might not be any all-timers in this group but as they figure out who is going to throw and run and catch the ball they should have the time to do so.
The last time the Broncos did not have a 1000 yard rusher was in 2018. Strong line play will help someone emerge this season.
2019 Boise State Broncos Predictions: Team Weaknesses
Starting from Scratch: Boise State is one of the most stable and successful program in America. This year they are trying to replace a lot.
By a lot I mean a four year starting quarterback, their leading rusher and their top two receivers from a year ago. Not sure they have ever had as much turnover on offense.
They like their candidates for replacement and guys who are getting the chance to step up but that is going to be a big hill to climb.
The defense is where most of the production is returning but they are breaking in new coaches on that side of the ball.
They are going to be switching to a 3-4 defense this season under the direction of first year defensive coordinator Jeff Schmedding.
He has experience as a DC at the FCS level but was originally brought in as a position coach then got elevated when the coordinator left for Oregon.
Boise State Broncos Prediction: 10-2
This is not going to be one of the better Boise State teams we have seen but the schedule is really light this season.
They are starting against Florida State but the game is not a true road game and the Seminoles have not been this low in a long time. Marshall is the only other nonconference game of any significance.
In Mountain West play their schedule could hardly be much better as they miss San Diego State and Fresno State during the regular season. They finish with back to back road game but there are no MWC games in which they should not be favoured.
Like so many seasons that opener will give a great indicator. Even if they lose though this team can easily get to 10 wins, as they normally do. In fact if they do lose there could be some early buying opportunities.
