The Boise State Broncos welcome the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns to the blue turf in week three action.
The Boise State Broncos rode their defense to a 38-21 road win over the Connecticut Huskies on Saturday. Not only did this unit limit the Huskies to 290 yards they forced three turnovers with a pick six and fumble return for another score to help out a sluggish attack that mustered a mere 292 yards. The Broncos ground attack was non existent with Jay Ajayi mustering 39 yards on 18 carries. Fortunately the Boise passing game was efficient with Grant Hedrick completing 18-26 for 231 yards and a pair of touchdowns with Matt Miller snagging five balls for 74 yards while hitting Hedrick with a seven yard TD on a trick play.

A week after a one sided loss to Louisiana Tech, the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns suffered the same fate in 56-15 loss at the hands of Ole Miss. The defense struggled to contain the athletic Rebels attack that ran and passed their way to 554 yards. ULL struggled to move the chains consistently with 344 yards with three picks and a fumble adding to the misery. Elijah McGuire, Alonzo Harris and Terrance Broadway gave the Ragin' Cajuns a quality threat on the ground with a combined 187 yards and over five yard average. The passing of Broadway wasn't nearly as productive with a 15-30 effort producing 129 yards with three INT's including a 59 yard pick six resulting in a forgettable day under center.
If you look at what Boise State did versus Connecticut you wouldn't touch the Broncos but I really don't like what I've seen from Louisiana-Lafayette and I'm not sure what we have in this team. For now I'll back the Broncos but check back later in the week...
