Offense

Boise State returns nine of 11 starters, including Heisman-contending QB Kellen Moore, TB Jeremy Avery, and two very talented and dangerous WRs, Austin Pettis and Titus Young. Behind Avery are Doug Martin and D.J. Harper.

The Broncos will have one of the best offenses in the nation, but it will be tested in the first game vs. Virginia Tech in Landover, MD, as the Hokies have a superb defense.

With this offense, Moore will have a chance to compete for the Heisman.

 

Defense

This could be Boise State's best defense of all time. With stars like Jeron Johnson, George Iloka, Brandyn Thompson, Billy Winn, and Ryan Winterswyk, this defense has a lot of firepower, but like I said with the offense, the defense will be tested against Virginia Tech with Tyrod Taylor and two great running backs.

 

Overview

Boise State has a schedule that is pretty easy besides VT, Oregon State, and Nevada, but I see Boise State not making the national title game and going 11-1, losing to VT.
