Boise State vs Fresno State Game Preview
Why Boise State Will Win
The defense isn’t the normal Boise State defense.
It’s been fine overall – it’s only allowing 22 points per game – but the pass D is just okay, and it’s having a few issues against the run, and the team is still finding ways to win.

Why Fresno State Will Win
Boise State isn’t good enough to overcome its own mistakes.
Two turnovers against Air Force … loss.

Boise State will have to work to get to 400.
What’s Going To Happen
It will be one of the most fun games and environments in college football this Saturday.
The place will be sold out and rocking as Fresno State can all but end Boise State’s Mountain West title hopes while taking a huge step forward to trying to secure the West.
Again, it’ll come down to turnovers. It won’t be a shootout, but Fresno State has more offensively to pull this off in the Mountain West’s big showcase game so far.
