Boise State vs Fresno State: The Milk Can Game

#1 Post by FloridaWarrior » Tue Nov 16, 2010 5:52 am

A very Big game Friday nite on ESPN2.

A very good Fresno State team is looking to end Boise's win streak and BCS hopes.
i don't see it happening but anything can happen in college football.
A quality Boise State win should push them above an idle TCU in the BCS Poll.
A struggle could hurt their ranking.
The following Friday is even a bigger game for Boise against Nevada.
Nevada should win this week and be 10-1 going into that game.
A Boise win in that game could impress voters and position them solidly at #3 in the BCS.

Oregon and Auburn have two tough games each remaining.
I see either the Ducks or that Cam Newt one man team losing one of those games.
And guess where that leaves the Broncos?
You got it.

And now the real fun begins....

Sorry.......neither game will be a contest. I watched both the BSU-ID and FSU-UNR games in their entirety. Fresno and Nevada don't have a prayer. In Fresno's history with Boise, they averaging losing on the blue turf by 40 PPG every time they go there. Nevada? Please......

Its clear the Broncos are in a different class right now. I have Boise by 49 this week against the Dawgs, followed by winning by 45 in Reno. Boise knows they need to blowout FSU and UNR for their title hopes......so expect consecutive blowouts.

Fresno isn't a bad team but they are far from a very good team. They are going to get toasted worse than we did on that blue turf. Nevada will have the best chance to upset BSU because the game will be in Reno but quit honestly, I see BSU winning that game by 2-3 TD's. Boise State is one of the, if not, the best team in the nation. They don't just light up the scoreboard, they also get it done on defense and ST. This is a legit top 3 team!

Peterson will not call off the dogs like he normally does. He will try to win as big as he can because he knows that could make a difference in their upcoming BCS ranking and he knows his team is good enough to be competing for a national title this season. The game he is probably more worried about is Nevada in Reno. BSU has a history of not being able to stop Kaepernick (went off in '07 as freshman @BSU (L 67-69.) I have a feeling this Boise defense will be more than ready for that game. They will kill Fresno this week but I think Reno gives them a game for a half the week after but BSU pulls away late!

If anything FS and NEV might give them a better fight for a quarter or two but honestly I don't see that happening. BS better win out big time or else I will be more upset about our loss to them. If BS wants their name in for the NC game they better spank the heck out of both teams. No holds bar kind of win. Otherwise they may look weak.

HawaiianHogster I think you are right.
I see those teams hanging around and making things seem interesting for awhile.
However I think Boise is just too talented and will pass, run and grind them into submission.
The Broncos are just so strong and experienced and well coached.
Nothing against Fresno or Nevada, but I hope Boise wins big and gets a chance to play in the BCS Title game.

i dont even see that. lets be real here. Fresno is not that good. they dont have any real playmakers, except MAYBE Robbie Rouse, but the running game is BSU's defensive strength. beyond that, nevada has Kaepernick and taua, but Boise has more speed this year then the times UNR played them close. i think they'll be at least as effective on D as we were against Kaepernick. and Nevad's D has holes.
When in doubt, burn it down.
