Boise State vs San Diego State Game Preview


Why Boise State Will Win

For all intents and purposes, Boise State is out of the Mountain West title hunt with a loss. It needs to win, and Air Force has to lose to UNLV, so …

Boise State is probably not going to play for the Mountain West championship – Air Force almost certainly won’t lose to UNLV.

The Broncos have stepped it up over the last month with a four-game winning streak since losing to Air Force. The offense has been balanced, the defense hasn’t allowed 20 points or more in five of the last six games, and …

San Diego State is shaky.

It’s 10-1, but it’s not build to mount a decent comeback against a good defense. The passing game is more of a surprise when it works than a given. But …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 13

Why San Diego State Will Win

The formula just keeps on working.

The defense is a bear against the run, it’s brilliant at coming up with key stops, and it all ties together with an offense that controls games on its terms.

Run well, get physical on both sides, and take advantage of every opportunity  – that’s what San Diego State does.

It looks mediocre, nothing seems to be working, and then its the fourth quarter and it’s up 17-10.

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

What’s Going To Happen

Will everyone be away for the 9:00 am home start time?

San Diego State will play hard no matter what, but how thing game goes depends on what happens on Thursday when Fresno State and San Jose State play.

If Fresno State loses, then San Diego State wins the West division of the Mountain West and this game doesn’t matter. If Fresno State wins, then the Aztecs have to win this to play for the Mountain West champion.

Either way, Boise State will get it done.

The Broncos have been great against the run – only Air Force and it’s all-ground attack did anything against this D since September – and in yet another low-scoring game for San Diego State, the passing attack won’t be able to make up for the lack of rushing production.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Boise State vs New Mexico Game Preview


Why New Mexico Will Win

The running game is getting a bit better.

It’s not necessarily leading to wins, but the Lobos went from struggling on the ground – and in offense as a whole – to coming up with three of its best rushing days of the season over the last three games.

One of the decent days – even with just 147 yards on the ground – was part of the win over Wyoming.

Boise State doesn’t run all that well, the offense hasn’t been its normal explosive self, and now it’s dealing with a Lobo defense that hasn’t been that bad.

But …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

Why Boise State Will Win

The running game is getting a bit better.

The Broncos weren’t great over the first part of the season on the ground, but it’s coming off a three-game run with its best three rushing days of the season – winning all three games.

In this, it also helps that New Mexico doesn’t and can’t score.

Dead last in the nation in scoring, the Lobos are averaging fewer than 14 points per game, haven’t scored more than 17 points in and of the last eight games, and it’s not going to  go off against a Boise State defense that hasn’t allowed 20 points in four of the last five games.

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 11

What’s Going To Happen

Boise State needs to win this and get a little help – Utah State has to lose and it would help if Air Force loses to Nevada or UNLV – and the Mountain Division title hopes are still alive.

It starts with dominating a struggling New Mexico team that’s not going to score enough to matter.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Wyoming vs Boise State Game Preview


Why Wyoming Will Win

Well hello, running game. We missed you.

The Wyoming offense that didn’t do a thing for almost all of October all of a sudden starting running well. It motored on San Jose State in a loss, and followed it up with a terrific 385-yard day – with 166 yards from Titus Swen and a strong day from Xazavian Valladay – in a 31-17 win over Colorado State.

Boise State’s defense has been better over the last few games, but it allowed 200 yards or more four times this year including 307 yards against Air Force.

Throw in Wyoming’s normal tough defense that keeps games close, and the formula is working.

However …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 11

Why Boise State Will Win

The Boise State offense has finally found some consistency.

It struggled on the ground over the first part of the season, but it’s been able to manage 140 yards or more in three of the last four games to go along with a passing attack that’s keeping things moving.

Yes, the Wyoming defense has been fantastic – it hasn’t allowed 200 yards through the air since September 11th – but as long as Boise State is hitting its third down plays, that’s what will matter in this.

On the road, Wyoming is getting hammered against the run – all three of the 200-yard rushing games came away from Laramie.

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 10

What’s Going To Happen

Wyoming is playing better, and it’s putting up the rushing yards to give Boise State something to worry about, but it’s not going to run like it did against Colorado State.

It won’t be anything pretty, but slow, steady, and bit grindy will win the race. There will be enough Bronco balance to get by.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Boise State vs Fresno State Game Preview


Why Boise State Will Win

The defense isn’t the normal Boise State defense.

It’s been fine overall – it’s only allowing 22 points per game – but the pass D is just okay, and it’s having a few issues against the run, and the team is still finding ways to win.

It starts with a good enough passing game to keep things moving. Third down conversions mean everything-  it leads the Mountain West – and then there’s the big key with this team …

Turnovers.

Boise State beat BYU with four takeaways. It crushed a solid UTEP team with six. It blew out Utah State with three. It’s feast or famine, but Boise State can take it away in bunches, and Fresno State has three turnovers or more in three games. However …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 10

Why Fresno State Will Win

Boise State isn’t good enough to overcome its own mistakes.

Two turnovers against Air Force … loss.

Three turnovers against Nevada … loss.

Two turnovers against Oklahoma State … tough loss.

Fresno State’s defense has been on fire lately, coming up with ten takeaways in the last three games, pulling off massively important wins over San Diego State, Nevada, and Wyoming.

Boise State has a solid D, but it doesn’t have the overall firepower to keep up with the Fresno State attack that’s balanced, explosive, and will get to 450 yards of total O.

Boise State will have to work to get to 400.

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 9

What’s Going To Happen

It will be one of the most fun games and environments in college football this Saturday.

The place will be sold out and rocking as Fresno State can all but end Boise State’s Mountain West title hopes while taking a huge step forward to trying to secure the West.

Again, it’ll come down to turnovers. It won’t be a shootout, but Fresno State has more offensively to pull this off in the Mountain West’s big showcase game so far.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Boise State vs Colorado State Game Preview


Why Boise State Will Win

If you’re a believer in the every other week pattern – a team that’s able to adapt, tweak, and adjust – then the Broncos are pulling this off after alternating win-loss-win-loss throughout the year. They’re coming off a loss to Air Force.

It’s all about the Boise State running game. The defense hasn’t been good enough, but the passing attack has been fine. On the ground, when the offense runs for over 100 yards, the team is 3-0. It’s 0-4 when it doesn’t get to 100 yards, but Colorado State’s run defense – as great as it’s been this year – has allowed over 100 yards in two of the last three games.

For all of the issues, Boise State is fantastic at converting on third downs, it doesn’t make a whole lot of mistakes, and the return game has been great. However …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 9

Why Colorado State Will Win

Colorado State’s run defense has been terrific.

Yeah, it allowed over 100 yards in two of the last three games, but it only gave up 113 to San Jose State and 111 to Utah State – the defense has been phenomenal since the opener against South Dakota State.

The pass rush and the ability to get into the backfield is among the best in the country, and Boise State’s offensive line just hasn’t been good enough. It’s not doing enough consistently well for the running game, and it’s among the worst in the country in tackles for loss and sacks allowed.

College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews, Week 9

What’s Going To Happen

Boise State has a way of pulling up out of the nosedive when it looks like things are about to crash.

Colorado State has the pass rush and the lines to stop the Boise State offense cold, but two turnovers will matter and too many Ram penalties will add up.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Air Force vs Boise State Game Preview


Why Air Force Will Win

The Falcons are humming.

The running game had a bad day – for them – with 211 yards against Wyoming and still came up with a strong 24-14 win. The rushing attack leads the nation, it’s doing a brilliant job of controlling the clock, and basically it’s doing what Air Force does.

It also helped that the defense generated two key takeaways.

With the way Air Force controls the clock, you only get so many bites at the apple. You blow two drives with giveaways, and you’re in trouble.

All of a sudden, the Falcon D has five takeaways over the last two games, and it needs to keep it going against a Boise State offense that gave it up three times in the loss to Nevada.

Boise State is +11 in turnover margin in the three wins and -3 in the three losses. Air Force doesn’t lose the turnover battle.

Week 7 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why Boise State Will Win

The Broncos aren’t getting the four turnovers they pulled off in the runner at BYU, but they might not need them.

The run defense held up well against Boise State, and even when it had problems against UCF, Oklahoma State, and Utah State it wasn’t all that big a deal.

Hank Bachmeier wasn’t great against BYU, but Boise State can’t be afraid to throw. Air Force only faced one decent passing game so far, and it got roasted for 448 yards and five scores in the loss to Utah State.

Week 7 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

And here comes that Boise State passing game.

Air Force will get its yards, and it’ll control the clock, but Bachmeier and the Boise State passing attack that’s been a tad hit-or-miss will hit. It’ll be a fun game with the Broncos pulling it out late – being at home will matter here.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

BYU vs Boise State Game Preview


Why Boise State Will Win

It hasn’t been perfect, but Boise State has managed to get the offense going with over 400 yards in three of the last four games with the one outlier the tough 21-20 loss to Oklahoma State.

In a lot of ways, the pressure is off. It’s been a rough run with three losses and a 41-31 defeat to Nevada in Mountain West play, but the spotlight is all on a top-ten caliber BYU squad that’s really and truly in the College Football Playoff chase now – it has a nasty schedule, unlike Cincinnati.

The passing game could be more explosive, but it’s clicking well enough to get by. The defense is forcing a ton of takeovers, but …

Week 6 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why BYU Will Win

The Cougars aren’t giving the ball away.

They’re sixth in the nation in turnover margin with just two giveaways, and they’re doing just about everywhere else right.

There’s not a lot of penalties, converting on third downs isn’t an issue, and the O is scoring when it’s getting the chance. On the flip side, Boise State can’t run the ball a lick, the run defense is shockingly mediocre, and the third down stops aren’t there.

BYU doesn’t have to be explosive. As long as it’s able to be steady and balanced, that should be enough to get by because …

Week 6 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

No, really. Boise State can’t do anything with the ground game.

The Broncos are 2-0 when they run for over 120 yards and 0-3 when they don’t. BYU is allowing 127 yards per game and haven’t allowed anyone – including Utah and Arizona State – to take over.

The BYU defense will take over right away, but Boise State will keep pressing with a decent enough day from QB Hank Bachmeier to hang around. However, as is the case all year, Boise State will be good, but not good enough.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Boise State vs Nevada Game Preview


Why Nevada Will Win

Nevada needs to throw its way to a win.

Carson Strong threw for over 300 yards in the loss to Kansas State, but there wasn’t any ground game and the defense couldn’t hold up against a running attack that kept control of the game throughout.

Boise State is going to throw and it’ll try to be balanced, but it’s having problems defensively on third downs and it can’t stop the run – allowing over 200 yards per game.

That’s not going to be Nevada. Go with the strength, get Strong into a groove early, and make the Broncos keep up.

Week 5 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why Boise State Will Win

Nevada really isn’t doing much defensively on third downs, either.

Usually the O can push its way out of it, but in this it could be a problem if Boise State is able to keep control of the game.

Nevada doesn’t have the running game to take advantage of the struggles on the Bronco defensive front, but Boise State can run just enough to be the difference in the balance.

There’s also one other big difference …

Week 5 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

In what might be a preview of the Mountain West championship, Boise State forces turnovers and Nevada doesn’t.

Neither side make a ton of mistakes, but the Bronco defense has forced 12 takeaways in four games with the three last week against Utah State making a huge difference.

Strong will have a good game, but Nevada won’t get the big plays defensively that Boise State will, and it won’t have the ground attack to balance this out.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Boise State vs Utah State Game Preview


Why Boise State Will Win

There are worse losses than a road shootout against UCF and a late home defeat to a Big 12 program as good as Oklahoma State.

This is better than a 1-2 team – even if you are what your record says it is.

The Boise State passing game still works, the defense hasn’t been totally horrible considering it had to deal with the UCF offensive powerhouse, and the takeaways have been coming – at least they did in the blowout win over UTEP.

This is where the program takes a deep breath, focuses on the Mountain West campaign, and clamps down. It’s been a rough start under new head man Andy Avalos, but the pieces are all there to go on a run. However …

Week 4 College Football Expert Picks

Why Utah State Will Win

The Aggies have been fantastic so far under new head man Blake Andersen.

His offense and some of his guys – like QB Logan Bonner – came in from Arkansas State and rolled at will in three excellent wins. The O was almost perfectly balanced at Washington State, beating North Dakota by 24 was strong – really, it was – and to open up the the conference season with 628 yards in a 49-45 win at Air Force was massive.

The defense couldn’t do a thing to stop the North Dakota passing game or the Air Force ground attack, but the O made up for it. Can Boise State prove it can actually win a shootout when the defense isn’t really working?

It’s going to have to find out.

Week 4 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

Get ready for fireworks.

Both teams will trade big shot for big shot, and this is when the Boise State running game finally starts to make a few things happen.

Neither team does much when it comes to the time of possession battle. Neither one will go on long, grinding marches, but Utah State will do just a little bit more on third downs in the fourth quarter.

Again, though, this is when Boise State starts to play the part. It won’t be easy, and it’ll have to hang on for dear life, but it’ll be a key win to get this season going.

Oklahoma State (2-0) vs Boise State (1-1) Game Preview


Why Oklahoma State Will Win

The Cowboys are surviving and advancing.

It’s been a rough two games so far with tight battles against Southwest Missouri State and Tulsa, but it’s been a bit of a rebuilding job with the coaching staff, and QB Spencer Sanders was out early on.

That’s why you have the soft openings – the hope is to be ready for a game like this.

The defense has been able to make up for the offensive problems with a good pass rush and enough stops to keep the team in games.

It’s been a high-wire act, but the O proved it could explode – coming up with a 21-point fourth quarter comeback to get by Tulsa 28-23 – and now the attack gets a Boise State defense that’s struggling to get off the field – at least it did against UCF – and …

They had to deal with a tough battle in Orlando against the Knights, and they returned roaring in a blowout win over UTEP even though the ground game wasn’t working all that well.

This isn’t quite the offensive machine it should be under new head coach Andy Avalos, but the explosion was there last week in the passing game and the team took its foot off the gas after getting up 41-13 at halftime.

Oklahoma State just can’t get the rushing attack going. There are too many penalties, the turnovers have been a problem, and overall, the team isn’t playing well. Now it has to go on the road to a tough environment against a fired up team looking to make a statement.

What’s Going To Happen

Is this where Oklahoma State flips the switch?

There’s experience and talent there to be a whole lot better, but the team just isn’t playing well – especially offensively. But Boise State isn’t running well, either.

The difference will be the mistakes.

Oklahoma State will be -2 in turnover margin against a Boise State D that leads the nation with 11 takeaways in two games. No, Avalos’s team might not be doing enough offensively, but it’s attacking well enough on the defensive side to get out of this with a nice national win.
