The teams met early last year with the Boise St Broncos posting the close 7-6 home victory as a -6 point betting favorite with the total going under 50 ½ points. BYU had trouble moving the football in defeat as they could gain just 200 yards for the game. Taysom Hill was under center in the game and hit on just 4 of 10 passes for 42 yards. The Cougars got just 2 of 12 third down conversions. After a rough start to the season with losses at Washington and Fresno St the Boise St Broncos have a three game win streak with notable wins at Utah St and last week they top Nevada 34-17 at home. Boise St will be playing without starting quarterback Joe Southwick who broke his ankle on the first play of the game in the Nevada game. Southwick has not really elevated Boise St this year following his first year under center in 2012. The replacement was junior Grant Hedrick who hit on 18 of 21 passes last week for 150 yards. Hedrick is a run threat who ran eight times for 115 yards and two touchdowns last week. Southwick was more of a pocket passer so Hedrick can be tricky to play against. This week he gets full reps with the starters. Boise St running back Jay Ajayi had a monster game last week with 222 yards rushing and three touchdowns. In 2013 BYU is very much one dimension as they struggle in the passing game as quarterback Taysom Hill completes 50.6% of his passes with 9 touchdowns and 8 picks.
With our college football pick for Friday we will play on the Boise St Broncos +7 points at online sportsbook usa.
