|Date & Time||Saturday October 3, 2015, 10:15 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Boise State Broncos -23.5 -- Over/Under: 51.5
The Boise State Broncos hope to avoid the upset bid of the Hawaii Warriors in week five.
Norm Chow and the Hawaii Warriors are 2-2 after four weeks which is pretty good considering this team’s struggles in recent years. The Warriors suffered a 28-0 setback at Wisconsin Saturday as a 25 point underdog. The stronger Badgers stayed on the ground with 326 of their 512 yards coming from their rushing attack which turned in to nearly 40 minutes of possession. UH managed just 255 yards and netted less then 40 rushing yards which meant a heavy reliance on throwing the ball. Max Wittek could not save the Warriors through the air with a 15-32 performance for 189 yards fell short of getting the ball in the end zone.
Following a poor effort in a loss to Brigham Young the Boise State Broncos have been dominant in all phases in securing back to back victories. The Broncos had zero problem with Virginia with a 447-273 yardage edge not telling the entire story. The Broncos recovered a fumble and had four interceptions including a pair of pick six’s and a safety to actually outscore the Cavaliers themselves. Jeremy McNichols led BSU on the ground with 69 yards and a score and caught five passes for 47 yards and another score. The Broncos star of the game was quarterback Brett Rypien who threw for 321 yards and three touchdowns with Thomas Sperbeck grabbing five balls for 121 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
The over is 4-0 in Rainbow Warriors last 4 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game and the under is 4-0 in Rainbow Warriors last 4 road games while Hawaii are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game. The over is 9-1 in Broncos last 10 games following a S.U. win and is 6-1 in Broncos last 7 conference games while going 5-1 in Broncos last 6 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game. The favorite is 4-1-ATS in their last 5 meetings. The Hawaii defense might keep this from getting out of hand but for now I’ll go with potential…
