In a game from NCAAF, we will see the teams of BYU Cougars at Boise State Broncos on Thursday at Albertsons Stadium, Boise, Idaho.
Jeremy McNichols of the Boise State is an absolute animal as he ran for 217 yards and two touchdowns over 40 carries. Quarterback Brett Rypien completed 16 out of 24 passes for 207 yards with a single touchdown and zero interceptions. He has been impressive throughout the season with 1622 passing yards, 12 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.
Taysom Hill completed 16 out of his 28 passes against Mississippi State for 165 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Williams only went for 76 yards on 26 carries for the BYU. He will try to bounce back this week if he wants to regain his draft stock which declined after last week’s performance.
These two running backs will be the ones you should watch on Thursday night. I think whoever has the better game, will probably deliver the win to his team. BYU is allowing 25.1 points per game while Boise State are one of the best defensive units in the country allowing only 19.3 points per game. There will be running game for most of the time and milking the clock by both offenses. That’s why I think this game will have no more than 58 points.
