It’s a Mountain West conference showdown to kick off the college week on Thursday night at Albertsons Stadium. The New Mexico Lobos make the trip to take on the Boise State Broncos.
The Broncos have won seven of the last eigt games played between the two teams. In their meeting last year the Broncos won by a final score of 49-21.
New Mexico Lobos
The New Mexico Lobos are going to come into this game fired up. After winning their first game of the year they played their rivals, New Mexico State in their last game.
After falling behind 30-5 they came storming back in the fourth quarter.
They actually scored a touchdown with a minute and eleven seconds to go in the game but the two point conversion failed and they ended up falling two points short losing by a final score of 30-5.
The Lobos are still featuring an offense that has two quarterbacks playing. They both get about equal playing team, and both play about as well as the last one.
To win this game the Lobos can’t fall behind like they did against New Mexico State. The fact they were able to come back was impressive but if they let that happen again, and fall behind I don’t think the Boise State Broncos will let them come back.
They also need one of the quarterbacks to take the starting job by the reigns. It’s hard to get a rhythm going when you have two quarterbacks playing.
Boise State Broncos
On the other side of this match up is the Boise State Broncos who come into this game off a terrible terrible loss.
In their last game against the Washington State Cougars they looked like they were well on the way to a big upset when they were leading 31-10.
But then it was liked they panicked and forgot how to play football and let the Cougars come storming back and they ultimately lost in overtime by a final score of 47-44.
Bigger then the loss they might have lost their starting quarterback. Brett Rypien suffered a concussion against the Cougars and he is officially questionable for this game.
If he can’t go the keys off the offense will be turned over to Montell Cozart who played most of the second half against Washington State.
On the season he has thrown for 211 yards and three touchdowns and one interception.
