What's at Stake
Louisiana Tech is trying to snap a six-game losing streak against Western Athletic Conference rival Boise State. The Broncos, coming off an upset at Oregon, are looking to extend their home winning streak to 16 straight.
Behind QB Kellen Moore, the Broncos are averaging 306 passing yards per game, while the Bulldogs have failed so far to stop an opponent's passing attack. In three games, La. Tech has allowed an average of 349 yards through the air, one of the worst in the nation.
Players to watch
La. Tech: QB Taylor Bennett, who committed briefly to play at Boise State, has yet to distinguish himself, completing just 41 percent of his passes and is last in the WAC in passer efficiency at 82.76.
te: RB Ian Johnson has yet to run for more than 100 yards in a game this season, though he's been close, getting 97 against Bowling Green and 87 in the opener against Idaho State.
La. Tech hasn't won at Boise State since 1997, but neither have many other teams. Since 2003, the Broncos are 34-1 at home, a .971 winning percentage that's best in the nation. Broncos cornerback Kyle Wilson has started 21 straight games, the longest streak on Boise State's defense.
