With the season winding down and one game left on their schedule Boise State is looking to end the season off with a bang. This past week quarterback Kellen Moore finished fourth in the Heisman race, being the first ever Boise State Bronco to reach the top five in voting. Also this week, Utah Utes quarterback Jordan Wynn was ruled out for the game leaving Terrance Cain to lead the Utes offense agasint Boise State.
Boise State is looking to face a talented Utes team, that of late has not lived up to its full potential. After getting the season off to a hot start, a terrible two game span in which the Utes were destroyed by TCU at home and then Notre Dame on the road, ruined the Utes season that was filled with hope of reaching a BCS bowl game. Boise State, was on a hot streak as well to start off the season, but a chance meeting in Reno demolished the dreams of making a BCS bowl game for the second straight year as they lost to Nevada 34-31 in overtime.
While neither of these teams hoped at the beginning of the year they would be in this bowl, the matchup that has been presented looks like a good one. Both Utah and Boise State have won two BCS bowl games and both have been powerhouses in the non-AQ conferences for many of years. Both teams have talented coaches so you know each side will be well prepared to face one another. I see this game being closer than many expect. While Boise State does have better overall talent, I see Utah finding ways to keep this game close. In the end though, Boise State will have too much fire power and as a result I see them winning 38-28.
