Boise State Broncos Game Notes
Taylen Green completed 13 of 17 passes for 228 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions during Friday’s 27-19 victory against Air Force. He also had seven rushes for 25 yards with a touchdown.
It was a solid effort from Green, who’s completed 61.8 percent of his passes for 321 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in two games since replacing Maddux Madsen (leg). Overall, Green’s thrown for 1,526 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions this season while adding 344 rushing yards with seven scores. He’ll lead the Broncos’ offense again next week in the conference championship game vs. UNLV.
UNLV Rebels Game Notes
Jayden Maiava was 19-for-29 passing for 229 yards and a touchdown during Saturday’s 37-31 defeat to San Jose State. While the loss snapped a three-game winning streak, it was another positive outing from the freshman Maiava, who’s completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,047 yards with seven touchdowns and two interceptions over his last four games. Maiava’s strong finish led the Rebels to their first appearance in the Mountain West Conference championship game, where they’ll host Boise State next week.

Boise State vs. UNLV Betting Prediction
Take Boise State. The Broncos are a perfect 5-0 in their last five road games versus the Rebels ad have covered in four out of their last five games overall. I know UNLV has been a betting darling this season because of its 9-2 ATS record, but the Rebels’ bubble popped last week in their 37-31 loss versus San Jose State. I’m backing the better team today in Boise.
