COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Boise State has been looking for an offense after edging BYU, 7-6 last Friday. Since 2000, they have averaged 41.75ppg. But so far this season, they are averaging just 19.7ppg. Junior QB Joe Southwick has proven one thing so far, he’s no Kellen Moore. The Lobos are coming off a 27-14 win at rival New Mexico State last week, as Kasey Carrier rushed for 129 yards and a touchdown. Considering the fact that New Mexico has dropped 13 straight against ranked foes since a win at Utah on Oct. 25, 2003, their chances of winning this one at home is slim. But they do have a good shot of covering the big number as Boise State’s offense continues to struggle.
