Bet Boise State at Bowling Green
At 3-0 the Broncos are still fighting for an unbeaten season, a BCS berth, and possibly even a spot in the BCS National Championship.
State has improved on offense with each game, but the defense seemed to hit a speed bump last week in its 51-34 win over
State. The Bulldogs racked up 507 yards on
State, but the Broncos forced two key turnovers to get the win. On offense, the Broncos have rushed for nearly 600 yards as a team, with D.J. Harper and Jeremy Avery each totaling over 275 yards in the three wins. Harper is out on Saturday with a leg injury, but it shouldn’t slow down the Broncos too much. The passing game for
State has also been efficient, as Kellen Moore has eight touchdown passes to one interception.
Moore has thrown for 685 yards on 53-of-80 passing, with Austin Pitts and Titus Young each with over 14 receptions.
The Falcons opened the year with a 31-14 win over
Troy but then lost a heart-breaker, 27-20 at No. 25
Missouri. Last week, the Falcons lost 17-10 at
Marshall, but are hosting the highest-ranked opponent ever in
State on Saturday. Tyler Sheehan has thrown for 928 yards and four touchdowns in the three games while Freddie Barnes already has 42 receptions for 336 yards and two touchdowns. The 42 receptions for Barnes is seven more than any other player in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Last season, the Falcons dropped a 20-7 decision at
