BTN Predictions: UNLV


Derek – This is a tough game to call.  Tony Sanchez appears to have the Rebels on the right track.  They have won a couple of games, should have won a couple more, and appear to have a new attitude.  Blake Decker is back and Sanchez mentioned that they are planning to attack the Broncos O-Line with because of the injuries to Rees Odhiambo and Mario Yakoo.  Will all of this be enough to hold the Broncos?  Probably not.  I expect a little bit of fight from the Rebs in the first half, but I have a feeling Boise State pulls away with a dominating third quarter.  Boise State 52 UNLV 21

Tami – This just has the feel of one of those games that is way too close for most of the time and give everyone heart attacks but Boise ends up winning by three scores anyway. Ryp needs to be accurate and quick getting the ball out of his hands, and lets hope the next men up on the OL are ready. UNLV won’t have enough offensive firepower to beat Boise without a ton of help in the form of a USU game style meltdown. Could happen, but it’s not super likely. Broncos win, but after giving us the first fright of the day. Boise State 41 – UNLV 24

Noel – I don’t think this is as much of a trap game as it seems. I think the offense will be a step up from last week’s conservative approach with quite a few deep shots on early downs. We’ll still get a healthy dose of the McWeapon though and that will be the gist of it. The defense will only struggle when the 2s & 3s are in. This will be the most complete game of the year in all phases. Broncos 55 Rebels 10
