The long-range weather forecast for Boise couldn’t be better for a game in November on the blue turf at Bronco Stadium. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies and temperatures reaching a daytime high of 60. Though the overnight low is 38, the evening game should be moderate enough to make for a great fall setting for football.
There is a lot riding on the game between the Broncos and San Diego State. Boise State’s defensive secondary has been hit by suspensions and injuries, so that could open up some probing opportunities by Aztec quarterback Adam Dingwell. The Aztecs also like to run the ball, and Boise State has given up the most rushing yardage when the ball-carriers have hit the corners.
That will further put pressure on the linebackers and secondary to step up and stop the San Diego State ground game.
Boise State enters the game at 4-0 in conference play and 7-1 overall. San Diego State is 4-1 in Mountain West Conference play and 6-3 overall.
