Borel has 153 rushing yards with 5 TDs. He also has been decent throwing the ball with 1,024 yards 5 TDs and 4 Ints.

The Bulldogs have not been impressive on both sides of the ball. They are 90th in defense allowing 29 points a game. They have been worse on offense only averaging 18.4 points a game. Their rushing game will need to pick it up as they rank 100th in the nation with 105.8 yards a game. The passing game is averaging 228 yards a game, 55th best. The Bulldogs are in the middle of a QB shuffle.

The Bulldogs offense has not been good at all this year. With football picks, bad offenses make them easy. The Bulldogs will need to score more than their season average if they want to win this one. Look for Utah State to come in and establish the running game and win the time possession battle.
