2020 Football Preview – Mountain West – Broncos
Looking for 2020 Boise State Broncos predictions? The Broncos went from being 10-3 in 2018 to 12-1 in 2019. This was a solid improvement and a job well done by their head coach. They also went to the Las Vegas Bowl where they lost to Washington 38-7. Now the question is whether or not they can continue their dominance and retain the Mountain West title.

2020 Boise State Broncos Preview
Bryan Harsin and the 2020 edition of the Boise State Broncos will be hungry to repeat as Mountain West champions especially given how their season ended in the Las Vegas Bowl at the hands of Washington.
They certainly looked primed to do just that even though quarterback Jaylon Henderson’s college career has ended, with the signing of dual-threat quarterback Cade Fennegan.
Fennegan was the stand-out starting QB at Woodrow Wilson High School in Texas and although he was not a highly touted prospect he did receive multiple scholarship offers before going on a two year LDS mission to Argentina.
He now is the likely starter for the Broncos in 2020 with other QB’s on the roster failing to impress the coaching staff. Fennegan brings with him 6454 yards and 97 throwing touchdowns in three years as the starter at Woodrow Wilson High in his 3 year career and will look to translate that to the NCAA D1 level.
2020 Boise State Broncos – Strong defence, questions over the offence?
This Boise State Broncos defence was solid last year and although they have lost some key pieces on that side of the ball, I think they have retained enough talent and some of the new signings may be able to fill some of the shoes of those who have left.
The questions really start when looking at what the Broncos offence may look in 2020 with some possible shifts at the QB position and losing their stand-out wide receiver John Hightower who was taken in the 5th round by the Philadelphia Eagles, as he just barely fell short of the 1000 yard mark in the 2019 season.
2020 Boise State Broncos Predictions: Team Strengths: Defence/Linebackers
The strength of this team will be on the defensive side of things with plenty of returning stand-outs like Riley Whimpey who led the team in tackles at 83.
He is the core of what I believe to be a really solid Linebacking core who will be able to elevate this team to perhaps another Mountain West title.
2020 Boise State Broncos Predictions: Team Weaknesses: Offensive questions
This offence might turn out to be really good, and possibly even better than last year, but we just do not know how this team will adjust without Hightower and with a new QB possibly taking the reins.
It is not just that a new QB is taking over, but Fennegan has been in Argentina for the past two years and it remains to be seen what kind of an impact he can make on this team from day 1.

2020 Boise State Broncos Prediction: 1st in the Mountain West & a 10-2 record (Bet Now at any of our Reviewed Online Sportsbooks!)
I do think they win the conference again with what I believe will be a stifling defence, but I would shy away from those odds of -200, as Air Force will likely be with them every step of the way and it would not surprise me if a tie-breaker settles the Mountain West in 2020.
