The Line: Colorado State Rams +12 -- Over/Under:
The Boise State Broncos shoot for their 4th straight win at the Colorado State Rams Saturday.
After a disappointing loss to Brigham Young the Boise State Broncos have been a force on both sides of the ball following a 55-0 rout of visiting Hawaii on Saturday to up their record to 4-1. Boise led 42-0 at the half before the wolves were called off. Boise able to run and throw their way to 554 yards while the Warriors were held to only 170 yards and four turnovers. Brett Rypien gave the Broncos a boost in the air on 19-25 for 271 yards and three touchdowns with Chaz Anderson and Thomas Sperbeck combining for ten receptions for 182 yards and a TD each. Jeremy McNichols led the Boise State run with 108 yards and a pair of scores on 20 carries while Kelsey Young totaled 69 yards on 12 touches with a TD.
The Colorado State Rams lost a few valuable players to graduation and it has hurt them on the field. The Rams fell to 2-3 following a 33-18 defeat at rival Utah State in week five. USU won the yardage battle 435-361 while CSU gave the ball away three times. Quarterback Nick Stevens struggled to hook up with his receivers on a 21-46 effort for 252 yards and a touchdown and pick with Rashard Higgins leading the Rams receiving corps with ten receptions for 114 yards and a score. Xavier Williams caught four balls for 71 yards while Jasen Oden led Colorado State on the ground with 55 yards on 13 touches but neither the run or pass was consistent enough.
The Broncos are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a losing home record and the under is 4-0 in Broncos last 4 games on fieldturf and the over is 4-0 in Broncos last 4 vs. a team with a losing record. The under is 6-0 in Rams last 6 vs. a team with a winning record and the over is 4-0 in Rams last 4 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game while going 5-1 in Rams last 6 conference games. I like the way the Broncos are playing and I’ll back them here…
