In a game from NCAA Football Week 8, we will see Colorado State at Boise State.
The Colorado State Rams improved to 3-4 with a narrow win over New Mexico last week by 20-17. K.J. Carta-Samuels played very well at the quarterback position, throwing for 311 passing yards and a touchdown. He has 1950 passing yards so far with 16 touchdowns to 6 interceptions. He is very solid and he produces well, especially when he has his running back’s support. Their defense is struggling against the pass and the run but they came up clutch last week when they limited New Mexico to just 299 total yards.
The Boise State Broncos also recorded a narrow win but theirs was against Nevada. Brett Rypien got the W and he threw for 299 yards with 2 touchdowns but he also had 3 interceptions. He tossed 5 interceptions in his last 2 games and this can be concerning for the senior QB. Their running game isn’t very good and they mostly rely on the passes.
Both teams have defensive liabilities but the Rams are having close affairs in recent weeks. I believe that this won’t be a blowout for the Broncos as everyone expects it to be and the game won’t offer us as many points as we think. We’re lacking a running game and both teams will concentrate on neutralizing the pass.
