Will update with trends when / if they’re released.
If Southern Utah is going to give up 99 points to Oregon State, I can only imagine what the Boise State Broncos are going to do on their home court. Boise State has been a crazy good offense over the years and has a reputation of knocking down the long ball at home. If the Thunderbirds can't defend, they're going to get blown out yet again. I expect the Boise State Broncos to get whatever they want offensively, blowing the doors off in this game while improving to 2-0 on the season.
