vs. Grambling State
Utah State’s defense last year didn’t have leg to stand on due to lack of depth at all positions, but this year the defense has the capability to spot their offense some security. Look for senior quarterback Diondre Borel to carry the offensive load on his back as he is expected to be a standout quarterback in the WAC. Coach Andersen wishes to see his Aggies become a better model of consistency instead of performing their magical disappearing act.
Not a colossal shock in the No. 1 spot in the WAC, Chris Petersen’s Boise State Broncos are by far the most complete team on both sides of the ball. Led by junior quarterback Kellen Moore orchestrating an offense averaging slightly over 42 points per game, the Broncos four year run under Petersen has made the statement that they do belong in the BCS conversation. Boise’s sure-handed wide receiving core eases the pressure on Moore’s pinpoint accuracy. The backfield is the topping on the offensive cake containing a trio of multi-threatening running backs. Rest assure the Broncos aren’t the only ones eager for the Virginia Tech game, but the eyes of the entire nation will be tuning in to see the most intriguing game of college football’s opening week.
Boise State University sits in the driver’s seat controlling their own destiny as they try and earn a bid to play for the BCS National Championship Game…..if they can run the table. Remember assuming they win their first three games, conference play under any circumstances offers no sure bet.
