As is customary when these two teams meet, fans should expect a lot of physicality between the Boise State Broncos and Brigham Young Cougars at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Friday night.

When these two teams met last year, the Broncos were able to squeak out a 7-6 victory in what was a defensive struggle.

Both teams come into this year’s matchup with a considerable amount of positive momentum, as the Cougars have reeled off four straight victories while the Broncos have won their last three contests.

Last weekend, Boise State laid down the hammer in the second half, holding the Nevada Wolf Pack scoreless en route to 34-17 victory. The Broncos did, however, lose starting quarterback Joe Southwick to an ankle injury on the first play of the game.

BYU was involved in a barn-burner last Saturday afternoon, outlasting the Houston Cougars on the road to earn a close 47-46 win. Bronco Mendenhall’s team handed Houston its first loss of the season as quarterback Taysom Hill exploded for 417 yards passing and four touchdowns.

To prepare for Friday’s showdown, here is a viewer’s guide to the game.
