Boise State is better than their record shows, however they are not a great matchup for BYU. With the combination of likely rain in the forecast, Boise State will be limited in the passing game. As seen last week against Utah State, when the BYU defense is at, or near full strength, they limit opposing rushing attacks very well.
The BYU defense will come up with three takeaways which will limit the play calling of Boise State and lead to some short fields for the BYU offense.
The BYU offense will dominate up front and Tyler Allgeier and Lopini Katoa will combine for over 250 yards rushing. For the first time all season we will see a third and fourth running backs get reps as the Cougars run away (literally) in this game early in the second half.
Score Prediction: BYU 38 Boise State 21
