What’s Going To Happen
So here’s how this works.
It might seem silly, but there’s no way anyone could’ve foreseen Boise State and Fresno State playing for the Mountain West title when the schedule was put together. So this is the first of two meetings, with only next week’s battle mattering for conference supremacy.
Where will it be played? The team ranked higher in the College Football Playoff rankings will get the home field advantage.
Boise State was 23rd in the latest edition, and it’ll stay there or be higher with a win, and Fresno State will likely crack the top 25 if it wins. But what if neither one is ranked? That probably won’t happen, but Fresno State would almost certainly end up in the CFP top 25. If it’s not, the Bulldogs would host on the head-to-head win.
On a roll, Boise State has won seven straight and is unbeaten in Mountain West play, while Fresno State dropped the date with UNLV, but has been terrific defensively all conference season.
The Bulldogs are 8-0 when allowing 21 points or fewer, and 0-3 when giving up more. The Broncos have scored more than 21 points in every game.
The Fresno State offensive line has been fantastic, and the defense has been a killer on third downs and leads the conference in total D.
But the Bulldogs don’t have the firepower.
Boise State has a defense, too, and it’ll rise up on the road in a low-scoring battle. The Broncos have more offense, with the running game taking over in the second half to win Round One.
