Boise State vs. North Texas Predictions

This is a huge mismatch, and there’s a chance Boise State runs away with this game. In fact, it would be surprising if the Broncos didn’t dominate this matchup.

Boise State has an excellent running attack that averages 5.1 yards per carry, which is good for 23rd in the nation. The Broncos also rank 29th in overall rushing offense at 192.3 yards per game. They should control the line of scrimmage and push over a North Texas team that ranks 103rd in run defense. In fact, the Mean Green rank 123rd in total defense and 108th in scoring defense.

Look for Boise State to exploit those weaknesses and come out with a big performance.
