Reason for #21 Boise State Bronco vs San Jose State Spartans

#21 Boise State Bronco -17

The Broncos had a bye week this week and are coming off a loss of 28-25 to BYU that left the Broncos at 6-1. Chase Cord led Boise State in the loss with 185 yards passing and two touchdowns, but the Broncos QB also threw two interceptions. Boise State trailed after three quarters 28-10 and rallied for 15 points but came up just short.

The Broncos have ended up throwing the ball for 302 yards a game and ran the ball for 168 yards a game. The Broncos have given up 20.7 points a game. When it comes to the pass defense the Broncos have given up only 205 yards a game, but have allowed 124 yards a game on the ground.

On the defensive side of the ball, the match-up of the game will take place between Boise State’s secondary and Spartans star quarterback Josh Love. The rapid development of Love in the pocket has been incredible to watch, but he’ll be tested against a Boise State secondary that ranks second in the conference in pass defense.

It hasn't yet been decided if freshman quarterback Hank Bachmeier (1,547 yards, nine touchdowns, three interceptions) will return from a hip injury suffered against Hawaii on Oct. 12 or if sophomore Chase Cord will make his second career start.

Spartans are 5-15-2 ATS in their last 22 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. Spartans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games against a team with a winning road record.
