This game will be important in terms of deciding who wins the Mountain West Mountain Division.
The Broncos have dominated in the series, winning last year 50-19.
I wouldn’t call it must see TV but the Aggies are well aware this is their season.
There was a though early on that a perfect Boise State could crash the playoffs. Now that that is not a possibility the best they can hope for is Mountain West domination. So far so good but this will be a tougher test.
They seem to have found their QB in Brett Rypien and everything else is falling into place to make these the Broncos we are used to seeing.
That includes being a very tough defensive team. No it doesn’t mean they are shuttling players to the NFL like Alabama, but their numbers, against their competition are very strong, 7th in points and 5th in yards allowed.
Boise has generally trounced Utah State and will be looking to do so again. With each win they can creep back up the rankings as teams fall.
I don’t normally like big favourites on the road but the Broncos are well positioned to romp.
The Aggies are one of those teams you just don’t want to play. So far they have only two losses on the season, both to PAC12 teams – Washington and Utah – both on the road.
They have yet to lose a conference game but that streak looks in jeopardy with Boise State coming to town. Especially since QB Chuckie Keeton will not be available. He is the best difference maker they have.
Replacement Kent Myers does a good job valuing the ball and is a definite running threat, ripping off 8 yards per carry. If he plays smartly they can be in this ball game throughout.
For this team to beat Boise State they are going to have to play a pretty flawless game because they have no physical advantage really.
Their loss at Utah is looking pretty good right now. They did not play great but stayed in the game, that is going to be tough to do again.

I think the Aggies can keep this one close enough to cover. They probably won’t threaten but they can keep it within a score.

I have to admit I have low confidence in this projection I must admit. This could be a blowout by the Broncos.
