Boise St enters play with a record of 2-1 on the year with their lone loss coming in week one as they drop a 38-6 road defeat at the Washington Huskies. Since that defeat the team has rebounded with wins against Tennessee Martin and last week they beat Air Force at home 42-20. Boise St had many defensive starters from last year leave the program so they are very young. The team has improved since that week one defeat at a senior laden Huskies team. Fresno St opened play with a 52-51 overtime home win against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights and in week two they defeated non-FBS school Cal Poly 41-25 as a -28 ½ point favorite. Cal Poly got their 25 points in the second half. Boise St has dominated Fresno St in recent meetings. Last year it was the Broncos posting the 20-10 home victory and covering the point spread as a -7 point betting favorite. There are some question marks about this current Fresno St team on the defensive side of the football. Rutgers is not a dynamic offense yet the team makes the difficult cross-country flight and plays a late night game and put up 51 points on the Fresno St defense. The Bulldogs currently rank 113th in the nation in total defense as opponents are putting up 479 yards per game against them. Last year Boise St dropped a decision against Michigan St yet they recovered nicely with first year quarterback Joe Southwick under center. Southwick is completing 73% of this throws this season.
With our college football pick for Friday we will play on the Boise St Broncos -4 points against the Fresno St Bulldogs at the sports book.
