This Mountain West conference game sees the Rams trying to upset the heavily favored undefeated Broncos of Boise St.
This is an intriguing matchup with two very good quarterbacks leading their teams.
Colorado St. Rams
Collin Hill has played really good at QB the last couple of weeks.
He has 8 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on the season. This week he goes up against a Broncos defense that has given up only 101 passing yards per game the last two weeks.
I don’t see him doing much damage against the secondary and it will be surprising if he has over 150 yards through the air.
Dayln Dawkins is the all-around threat for the Rams offense. He can hurt you on the ground (125 yards rushing last week), or catching passes out of the backfield (at least two catches in 3 straight games).
If the Rams offensive line can open up holes he should be able to make big plays against the Bronco’s front seven. I’m looking at 125 total yards for the senior and a touchdown on the ground.
Michael Gallup was huge in the win against Utah St. last week.
He dominated the Aggies secondary for 7 catches, 140 yards, and a score. He has had 3 catches of 35+ yards this season but he faces a very good Boise St. secondary.
I don’t see him putting up the same numbers this week as he will be taken out of the game early by the coverages.
In the Rams 3 losses this season they have given up an average of 37 points.
They face the best team in the conference and I don’t expect the defense to be up to the challenge. The big issue in each of the losses has been defending the run.
If the Rams can stop the Boise St. rushing attack they may have a chance to pull off the upset and spoil Boise State’s bid at a New Year’s Six Bowl.
Brett Rypien was lights out against New Mexico St. last week.
Yes he was going up against one of the worst teams in college football, but throwing for 5 touchdowns against any opponent is a spectacular display. He has also played mistake free football and has not turned the ball over in the last 3 matchups.
I expect him to come out on fire and get the Broncos an early lead. Look for 3 touchdowns from the talented QB.
Workhorse running back Jeremy Nichols has been one of the best running backs in the Mountain West this season and should grab All Conference honors when the season is done.
With the Rams inability to stop the run it would be surprising to see him get less than 20 carries in this game.
In the last 5 games starting running backs are averaging 114 yards on the ground against them. I expect him to top the 150 yard mark this week.
The Boise St defense has been great against the pass this season.
If they can shut down the Rams passing game the victory should come easily as I don’t see Colin Hill having a good game.
