Boise State is set to host Miami (Ohio) in its 2012 home opener. It has been two weeks since the Broncos battled Michigan State in East Lansing, and no doubt fans, coaches and players alike are ready for some more action.
The bye week will either really help the Broncos, who looked rusty on offense against Spartans. Or, it will hinder them when they play an opponent who has had a bit more game time to work out the kinks.
Either way, you know that Chris Petersen will have a solid game plan in place, and his players will be mentally ready to go.
If the Broncos can bounce back from their opening game loss and find a way to a convincing win against the RedHawks, they might very well climb back into the top 25 polls.
However, a loss could be devastating for Boise State. It could show everyone that this is a team in serious rebuild mode.
What will happen come Saturday? Well, let's look at all the data before we jump to any conclusions.
