The BYU Cougars look to keep their recent momentum going as they travel to face the #14 Boise State Broncos Thursday night.  This is the seventh all-time meeting between the teams. Boise State has a 4-2 edge in the series though BYU took a 35-24 home win last season. The Broncos last won in the series with a 55-30 home win in 2014.

BYU has now won three straight games and are most recently coming off a 28-21 double overtime win over Mississippi State last Friday.  BYU is averaging 28.1 PPG on 405.0 total yards per game (204.1 passing, 200.9 rushing).  Defensively, BYU is allowing their opponents to average 25.1 PPG on 401.9 total yards per game (270.7 passing, 131.1 rushing). BYU has forced their opponents into committing 16 turnovers and have an overall turnover margin of +6.

Boise State had their problems against Colorado State but prevailed in a game they were favored by four touchdowns.  The Broncos led 28-3 in the fourth quarter but allowed three touchdowns in the span of 85 seconds to make it a game.  The Broncos average 466.6 yards and 35.3 points per game, tied for 36th in the FBS.  Sophomore quarterback Brett Rypien leads the Mountain West with 1,622 yards and 12 touchdown passes and has built a solid rapport with Sperbeck, who has 38 receptions (six for touchdowns) to go with a Mountain West-leading 701 receiving yards.

BYU vs Boise State Prediction

While Boise State’s (6-0) record has given them notoriety, their schedule has yet to match them up vs a top ranked team.  BYU has played some big time programs with games vs Arizona, Utah, UCLA, West Virginia, Toledo, Michigan State and Mississippi State.  All three losses have come by a combined 7 points.  BYU is not flashy but they are well rounded and they should be able to hang around Boise State in a back and forth battle. Take the Cougars and the points in a game that should come down to a FG spread.
