Boise State vs. Hawaii: TV Schedule, Live Stream, Radio, Game Time and More

The Boise State Broncos make the long trip to face the Hawaii Warriors on Saturday. Boise state is looking to rebound from a Week 10 loss while Hawaii is trying to jump-start its season.

The Warriors have been known for their high-powered passing offense. That hasn't been the case this season, though, as Hawaii's offense has struggled.

The Broncos can still secure a share of the Mountain West Conference title. It starts by focusing on the team at hand and not allowing the team to be distracted by the location.

 

When: Saturday, Nov. 10 at 7:00 p.m. ET

Betting Line (via OddsShark)

Over/Under: 52.5, Spread: Boise State -29.5

Hawaii has been bad on both sides of the ball this season. Boise State has had its moments of lackluster offensive play, but I just don't see the talent on Hawaii's defense to limit the Broncos' production.

The Broncos could erupt for 55-plus in this game, but I don't see it happening. They will come close, though, which will be enough to cover the spread and push them into the over.

BCS/Top-25 Implications

The loss to San Diego State eliminated any hope the Broncos had of making a BCS game. They are still alive for the conference championship, though. 

Boise State isn't likely to crack the Top 25 again this season, but is playing for placement in a bowl game.

Boise State Player to Watch: Joe Southwick, QB

There is little doubt the Broncos are going to win this game. The Warriors don't have any punch on defense and have had very little production on offense.

Shy of a complete meltdown by almost the entire team, Boise State takes home the win.

The question is the margin of victory and if they Broncos can cover the spread. The responsibility for that falls to the quarterback.

Southwick needs to spread the ball around and stay calm in the pocket. He should be able to control the offense and build some confidence as the seasons winds towards bowl games.

Hawaii Player to Watch: Will Gregory, RB

The Warrior passing game is on life support and the ground game isn't much better. Gregory does have 561 yards and is averaging 5.0 yards per carry, which is about the best that can be found on the offense.

The defense is in even worse shape.

 

Prediction:  Boise State 48, Hawaii 10

The Broncos did manage to drop 45 points on Wyoming two weeks ago and could certainly end up doing the same here. The fewest points scored on Hawaii (excluding the two points scored by Lamar) is 35 by New Mexico.

As much as I'd like to to say Hawaii can keep Boise State from going off, I just don't see it happening. The Broncos use this matchup as a tune-up game.
