#4 Boise State Broncos at #19 Nevada Wolf Pack

Friday November 26, 2010 10:15 PM EST

Line: Boise State -14

Boise State has not played a challenging game in 7 weeks since playing Oregon State in which they won 37-24. No game after that has been within 35 points. Nevada has played solid as of late with a 4 game winning streak, but have not played a ranked team this year.

Stats to consider:

Boise State Broncos:

  • The Broncos are 10-0 with a 6-0 WAC record.
  • They are 4-0 on the road.
  • Points against per game: 11.5 (2nd)
  • Points for per game: 47.9 (2nd)
  • Passing yards a game: 323.4 (5th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 205.4 (20th)

Nevada Wolf Pack:

  • Nevada is 10-1 with a 5-1 WAC record.
  • They are 6-0 at home.
  • Points against per game: 21.7 (38th)
  • Points for per game: 44.1 (4th)
  • Passing yards a game: 233.4 (50th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 304.4 (4th)

What to watch for:

  • Boise State Junior QB Kellen Moore has thrown for 2,921 yards 28 TDs and 5 Ints. He has thrown for 3 or more TDs the last 3 weeks. His main target has been Senior WR Titus Young who has 988 yards and 8 TDs. Last week Young had 164 yards and 2 TDs.
  • Boise Junior RB Doug Martin has rushed for 938 yards and 9 TDs while adding 219 and another TD receiving.
  • Nevada Senior QB Colin Kaepernick has thrown for 2,412 yards 19 TDs and 6 Ints. He has rushed for 984 yards and 16 TDs as well.
  • Nevada Senior RB Vai Taua has rushed for 1,241 yards and 16 TDs. He also has 3 receiving TDs.

Sports picks dive into the past opponents a team has faced. This is the last home game for Nevada, but they have not faced anyone as tough as Boise State. I see Boise State doing what they have done all year long and rolling in this one. Their defense is solid as can be and their offense is top notch. Nevada will put up some points in this one, but won’t be able to keep up with the high-powered Bronco offense.
