The stingy D belongs to the Cougars. On the other hand, the Broncos have a good defense, but, still, one that’s not as tough as BYU’s.
The game will be played at BSU’s Albertsons Stadium in Boise, ID. The weather will not be a factor in this one. Kickoff is scheduled for 9:45 pm ET. After reading our totals pick for this contest, take a moment to review our spread prediction of this same game.
BYU vs Boise State Totals Pick – Offenses & Defenses
The Cougars are averaging 44.4 PPG. They generate a lot of offense in the air (337.7 YPG) and on the ground (190.0 YPG). BYU is going up against a defense that’s allowing 21.5 PPG. The Broncos have been proven to be vulnerable to the run. Due to the fact that BSU has played just two games and both were against teams with weak passing games, it’s hard to predict how they will perform against the Cougars air attack. However, we expect that they will have a tough time against what is a deep receiving unit and a fine passing QB.
The Broncos are averaging 45.5 PPG. Although we doubt that they will be able to score that many points against BYU, which over seven games have allowed on average of just 13.4 PPG, we do think that Boise State will be able to score around 20 points. Like their opponent’s, the Broncos bring a productive rushing game and passing attack. In terms of D, BYU is tough against both the run (97.9 YPG) and pass (183.4 YPG).
