Bronco Stadium will be rocking when the New Mexico Lobos visit their Boise State Broncos.
If you follow New Mexico football at all there is no denying this has been a tough season and most of the blame can be leveled at the defensive side of the football. This unit is at or near the bottom of most categories with 524 yards and over 42 points allowed. Opponents have been able to both run and throw on this unit equally well with only two opponents held below 37 points. On the other side of the line of scrimmage we have one of the best rushing attacks in the game. The Lobos are number seven at 310 yards but are near the bottom passing so the problem has been sticking to the run when points have been needed in bunches which is what they have generally done.

When is the last time Boise State wasn't creating a controversy in the National Championship picture? Perhaps we saw a few cracks in the armor a year ago but this season there has been no armor to crack. The Broncos losing four games is almost unheard of but the gradual loss of talent catches up to everyone and my guess is it will eventually catch up to teams like Alabama so no team is immune. One of the issues that has come about is the Boise defense isn't as stout as in year's past which might sound ridiculous for a team allowing just 24 points but there was a day not long ago that opposing offenses were fortunate to sniff 20 points. The offense has put up some numbers at times but the loss of quarterback Joe Soutwick can't be over looked and that reminds us important the position is.
I believe Boise State will do some damage on the scoreboard and the Lobos should find the end zone a few times as well because they can score. I am looking at the over here with plenty of points to go around...
