1. BOISE STATE WIN TOTAL PREDICTION: WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN

Boise State passed the status of having to win a conference title or else a long, long time ago.

Last year’s team not only suffered the indignity of losing the Mountain West title at home, it also had its bowl game stopped, cancelled and ignored because of bad weather.

In what could’ve and should’ve been a 12-win season, instead if became the regular old double-digit win campaign for the third year in a row and for fourth time in five seasons.

The program has made greatness seem routine, but it’s still able to come up with great run after great run. With this year’s team, there’s a bit more work to do.

The offensive backfield needs more help, the defensive front could use a few more playmakers, and the kicking game is a massive concern. But it’s not like  Boise State hasn’t dealt with big things before and come back just fine.

Set The Regular Season Win Total At … 10

There isn’t a game on the schedule that Boise State can’t win. There’s no Fresno State or San Diego State from the West, the hardest Mountain West game until late November is against Hawaii at home, and the non-conference slate is against Florida State, Marshall, Portland State and BYU.

Some of the better Boise State teams of past years would’ve taken one look at this schedule and just assumed 12-0.

Instead, there will be two misfires along the way.

That Florida State game in Jacksonville to start the season isn’t easy, and going to BYU won’t be a picnic.

The late-season dates at Utah State and Colorado State will be tricky, and going to UNLV is tougher than it appears.

So, ho-hum, another ten-win season and another trip the Mountain West Championship.

Even when Boise State rebuilds, it’s still fantastic.
