Boise State vs Fresno
Bulldogs, welcome back to Boise! Your work is cut out for you.
It's Conference Game Day here in Boise and the Bulldogs are in town.
I have read all kinds of scenarios, but I liked this one best.
According to https://athlonsports.com,
"Can the Bulldogs conquer the "Smurf Turf"? Topping Boise State on its home field to earn a conference championship seems like a borderline impossible scenario. The Broncos went 5-1 at home this season, losing only to Virginia, and beat conference opponents by an average margin of 18.8 points on the Smurf Turf. Since joining the Mountain West in 2011, Boise State has lost just four home games against conference opponents.
" Final Analysis: Fresno State will be eager to make a statement after being denied the right to host the Mountain West Championship Game despite beating Boise State head-to-head and finishing with identical records in league play. The problem is that the Broncos are tough to overcome on the Smurf Turf. Fresno State has a strong enough defense to limit the damage, but it can't keep Boise State's playmakers in check for another four quarters".
Prediction: Boise State 24, Fresno State 20
Tickets are still available here with a 5:45 P.M. kickoff time. The game will air on ESPN.
Will it rain? Chances of showers starting around 7:00 P.M with a high of 43 degrees.
Good luck, Broncos!
