Boise State vs Nevada Game Preview
Why Boise State Will Win
It all stalled in last week’s tough 31-28 loss to BYU, but the ground game has been dominant over the second half of the season with well over 1,000 yards and 15 touchdowns in the last five games.
Boise State’s offense has been a powerhouse with the passing game balancing things out with 200 yards, the defense is the best in the Mountain West, and Nevada won’t be able to handle any of it.

What’s Going To Happen
It’s not going to be enough.
Boise State still has work to do to lock up the Mountain division no matter what, but it’ll take a big step forward with a relatively stress-free win.
Pound, rely on the defense, repeat.
