Derek – So, I am not very good at predictions. I picked blowouts in our first three games and two of them were close (Idaho State was a given). I pick a close game against Virginia and what do you know, our team puts together a complete game. I do, however, fee VERY confident in predicting a blowout this week. Hawaii has traveled 70,000* miles in the past couple weeks, and are dealing with some injuries. On top of that their hot-garbage-offense is going against our stout defense. It’s going to get ugly. They do have a decent defense themselves, but the jet lag may catch up to them, and I think our offense continues to get better. Vegas has this game at about a 25 point spread and 54 over/under. I think we cover and go over. Boise State 55 Hawaii 0.
*Miles traveled may not be accurate
Noel – I am just like Derek, it appears. That just means I’m horrible at predictions. I don’t think there will be too much trouble with the Rainbow Warriors. I do expect them to score in the 3rd or 4th quarter when the game is already out of reach. The Broncos’ defense will stop #HBUpTheMiddleForPresident all night long and, since Timmy Chang isn’t coming out of the tunnel in Boise, the passing game won’t be all that great either. I’m guessing some destruction and R.U.T.S. will occur. Broncos 66, Hawaii 17.
Tami – Yeahhhh, this game is most likely going to get out of hand if everything goes to plan. Kind of excited to see the ‘bows break out their awesome road throwbacks, tho. That’s going to be epic against The Blue. If one listens closely, they can hear the internet complaining about their eyes already. Boise State should score big on a travel weary Hawaii team. The Warriors will fight to the very end, but they also probably won’t have any more success than anybody else has establishing the run or defending against the McWeapon. Hawaii is a more complete team than they usually are, but the Broncos are primed for a run. Hawaii is just in the way. Boise – 58, Warriors – 24
