The Boise State Broncos head to Lavell Edwards Stadium to face the Brigham Young Cougars.
After dropping a one point decision to Fresno, Boise State has rattled off three consecutive double digit victories following a 34-17 win over visiting Nevada. The Broncos did not look good in the first half where they trailed 17-7 but they did a 360 in the final 30 minutes with a 27-0 run to win going away. The numbers say Boise had an easy time of it with a 557-373 advantage in yardage behind a monster 407 rushing yards. Jay Ajayi rumbled for 222 yards on on 24 carries with three touchdowns including a 71 yard jaunt while Grant Hedrick added 115 yards and two TD's with a 65 yard run. Hedrick was deadly efficient through the air, completing 18-21 for 150 yards and a pick with both sides of the ball dominating the second half.

Brigham Young improved to 5-2 on the season with a 47-46 victory over Houston for their fourth consecutive win. The normally dependable Cougars defense was lit upfor 483 yards but the offense came through with a whopping 681 yards with BYU scoring with just over a minute left to secure the win. Taysom Hill completed 29-44 for 417 yards for four touchdowns and three interceptions with Cody Hoffman leading the receiving corps with seven catches for 156 yards and a 25 yard TD. Hill was impressive with his legs as well with a game high 128 yards on 34 carries while Jamaal Williams and Adam Hine combined for 138 yards. The defense had their issues with the special teams allowing a 95 yard kick return while Hill tossed a pick six.
Both teams had a few issues last time out but for me this game looks fairly even so getting more then a touchdown is the way to go...
