it was no shocker that the Huskies weren’t up for ending the winning streak of UCF. This program might have familiar leadership at the helm but there is still a lot to be done before they are competitive. .
Boise State wants to be the top Group of Five team this season. A win over Connecticut is expected in that scenario, a big one actually. The line says that is likely to happen too.
The Huskies are not expected to compete in the AAC this season and any progress would be welcome. This group really struggles scoring and put up just 17 points in the opener. If they do not double that in this one it will be another blowout loss. .
There might be some light at the end of the tunnel with dual threat QB David Pindell. Pindell put up good passing numbers and really good rushing numbers against UCF. When you can do that sometimes you catch lightning in a bottle – see Kahlil Tate.
The defense used to be the bedrock of the program but it is nowhere near that status now. It does not help that the offense hangs it out to dry too much but they are going to be in over their heads against the varied attack of the Broncos.
Boise State Broncos
Boise State kicked off their season with an underrated win at Troy. They were favoured by 9 and won by 36 covering the total all on their own in a game that the oddsmakers clearly did not see going down that way. It is a really good sign.
Brett Rypien looked every bit the senior starter in this one. He connected on nearly every throw with four touchdowns to his credit. If he is making smart decisions there is no reason this group can’t be perfect in the regular season and turn some heads.
The Broncos defense was stout too. They really bottled up Troy on the ground and forced four turnovers. That is a recipe for ongoing success and now they are at home on the blue turf so they might ratchet it up even further.

That is a huge number but if this team really is on a mission they can cover it. They only have to keep Pinder in check.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Boise State -31
I am a little surprised at myself for this choice but backing Connecticut on the road hardly seems smart.
I might want to look at a first half over in this one too. The Broncos love to come out early and lay a whupping on teams. This game should be no different.
