LINE: Boise State -2.5, o/u: 66.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Under
Do you believe in the Utah State offensive machine, or not?
The 29 points scored against Colorado State was a quirk. Call it an unfocused lookahead moment to the showdown in Boise for Mountain title.
Before that, the Aggies managed to score 42 points or more in eight of the previous nine games. Even when it hit up a decent defense like BYU’s for 45 points, the point total still only hit 65 points.
Boise State games can get into shootouts, like the 48-38 win over Air Force, or the 56-28 victory over Colorado State. But now it’s on. Now it’s a big game.
Now the defense will want to make a statement.
The D has allowed more than 30 points just twice this year, and again, like the Utah State game against BYU, the total in one of them – the loss to Oklahoma State – only hit 65.
In a championship-like game between two strong teams, this should be played in the low-30s, or even the 20s.
And if it’s not, have fun with it, because it’ll be one of the best games of the day.
