Quarter-by-Quarter Prediction: Boise State vs. TCU

The game that will probably determine the Mountain West Championship is nearly here. 

Saturday is the day TCU comes to Boise to take on the No. 5 Broncos. Quarterback Kellen Moore and the boys have not played their best ball the last couple games, and TCU has looked better as the season has transpired. 

What will happen when these two teams collide in Idaho? 

Well, if history has anything to do with it, it will be a close game. TCU and Boise State have played just three times, and all of those games took place in the postseason. Boise State has won two of those contests, but each game was decided by a score or less. 

Boise State beat TCU 34-31 in the Horned Frogs' home stadium during the inaugural Fort Worth Bowl, but that was back in 2003. TCU returned the favor in 2008, beating the Broncos 17-16 in the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego.

The biggest stage these two met on was the 2010 Fiesta Bowl. Boise State won that game by a 17-10 score on the back of the "Riddler," which was the name of the fake punt that led Boise State to the winning drive. 

So who will win the game this Saturday? How will it be won? 

Check out a quarter-by-quarter prediction.
