In a game from NCAA Football Week 11, we will see Fresno State at Boise State.
Fresno State is on a 2-game mission to reach the Mountain West Conference title game. If they win against Boise State on the road and against San Diego at home next week, they will be almost certain for a bowl berth. The ground game finished with 192 yards last week against UNLV in a dominating performance when the team put up 48 points and allowed just 3. Since they last lost, Marcus McMariyon has just 1 interception and he has thrown for 2416 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Brett Rypien is playing on a very high level at the moment and with his last performance, he moved within 3000 passing yards for a third consecutive year. The Broncos have averaged 310.6 passing yards per game and 448.6 overall. Rypien has 24 touchdown passes which matches his career high from 2016. His receiving core is doing his job easier by moving into right places efficiently.
Fresno State has a solid defense that can make turnovers and this might be the advantage they have in this game. Their running game is suspect but McMariyon compensates as a dual-threat quarterback. Overall, the Bulldogs are tied with LSU for the second-most interceptions among FBS teams with 15 and the defense will most likely prevent Rypien from having another great game.
