The Boise State Broncos can still gain a share of the Western Athletic Conference championship this Saturday if they can emotionally rebound and beat the Utah State Aggies.

Why To Bet On Utah State

If ever there was a time when the Boise State Broncos are ripe for a real letdown and are likely to perform well below their capabilities, this game is it. The Broncos have to be emotionally reeling after blowing a 24-7 halftime lead to Nevada last Friday night and losing to the North Carolina State Wolf Pack in overtime by a 34-31 score. This season finale was supposed to be the day the Broncos clinched a berth in the Rose Bowl at the very least, and quite possibly a spot in the BCS National Championship Game. Instead, Senior Day at Bronco Stadium in Boise is going to have a decidedly different emotional feel compared to what college football pundits around the country expected.

The heartbreak associated with Boise’s loss – which would have been avoided if the Broncos had made just a few basic plays, such as catching a wide-open touchdown pass early in the third quarter or making a chip-shot field goal on the final play of regulation time in a 31-all tie – is still quite profound, several days after the moment of devastation experienced on a chilly night in Reno, Nevada. A Boise State team that had its sights set on a BCS bowl at the very least could now plummet in the bowl pecking order, all the way down to the Humanitarian Bowl or the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. The Broncos could very possibly play opponents that are far below BSU’s caliber. A middling team from a power conference, a team with a 6-6 or 7-5 record, could be Boise’s opponent. In many ways, the Broncos’ season is over. There won’t be any big game against an elite foe, unless an eleventh-hour backroom deal is arranged for the Broncos to play in the Holiday Bowl against a Big 12 opponent such as the Missouri Tigers or the Oklahoma State Cowboys, which would be a genuinely intriguing matchup. It could very well be that with no grand incentives left in their season, the Broncos could wilt, thereby allowing Utah State and coach Gary Anderson to get noisy in Boise and pull off an upset.

Why To Bet On Boise State

Then again, this is still Boise State we’re talking about. The Broncos are still loaded with talent and are playing for a share of the Western Athletic Conference title. Boise is a senior-laden team playing on Senior Day, and that reality could lift this team off the canvas, inspiring coach Chris Petersen’s club to play its level best. One thing that also needs to be considered from a BSU standpoint is that Kyle Brotzman, the kicker who missed not just one, but two chip shots in the latter stages of the Nevada loss, has been met with both death threats and – on the other side of the coin – an outpouring of affection in the wake of his nightmarish game in Reno. Boise’s players could use Brotzman as a rallying point and a reason to max out against Utah State. Naturally, if that happens, the visitors from Logan, Utah, will not be able to remain competitive for very long.

How The Game Will Play Out

Boise State will indeed play this game for Kyle Brotzman, and that’s really all you need to know. Take Boise, which should win this game by at least 50 points at home.
