The Boise State Broncos and the UNLV Rebels will meet on Saturday at Sam Boyd Stadium and the NCAA Football game is televised on VERSUS.
Well, it’s obvious by now that if Boise beats the Rebels by 100 points today, they’ll still trail in the BCS rankings should Oklahoma State, Stanford, LSU or Alabama manage a win.
So, with nothing to be gained by piling up the points – and hoping to avoid injury before next week’s big winner- take-all MWC showdown with TCU – Broncos’ head coach Chris Petersen may leave some of the artillery back at the armory for this duel in the desert.
Boise State has seen its share of big pointspreads but the opening line of 42 points is getting a little bit out there (BSU just 2-3 ATS last ﬁve laying 40 or more points).
However, this matchup can claim one of the day’s more unusual stat situations: the host in UNLV games is an astonishing 17-2 ATS under 2nd-year coach Bobby Hauck.
With support like that, we’ll try this Homecoming dog against an extraordinarily priced visitor in a tough scheduling spot.
