Greg Welch

Boise State throws the ball pretty well, and BYU defends the pass, eh, not so well. Boise State has struggled with turnovers, like in their loss at Air Force where they had 7, but I don’t think BYU can count on the Broncos being as generous to them. Boise State 38, BYU 28.

Adam Mangum

The defense doesn’t get much better, but the offense reduces the turnovers and Stewart has another big game. BYU 38, Boise State 35.

Geoff Johnston

The BYU defense improves some, but not quite enough to overcome the voodoo emitting from that awful blue turf. Boise State 24, BYU 23.

Charles Kano

Bronco has some decision to make on defense this week and not all are on field moves. Expect an old-fashioned, WAC-style boat race; the first team to get a defensive stop wins. BYU 38, Boise State 35.

Brandon Jones

BYU’s defense will improve on its performance against Nevada, but Boise State is a better team than Nevada. It looks like another game that comes down to the last possession. Boise State 27, BYU 24.

So, there you have it. How do you think BYU’s third trip to the smurf turf will go down? Add your predictions to the discussion on Cougarboard.

Go Cougars!
