College Football Week 14: #25 Boise State At Nevada

Boise State
Colorado State v Boise State
Nevada v Hawaii
Winner Boise State has had a disappointing season by the standards Chris Petersen has set, but at 9-2 the Broncos still have an outside shot at a BCS bowl.
Chris Ault is a Nevada lifer. His team is looking for its eighth win, which would the most for the program since 2010.
The transition from Kellen Moore to Joe Southwick has been rough, though the junior quarterback had a stellar game last week, completing 17 of 20 passes.
Winner Sophomore quarterback Cody Fajardo has thrown for more than 2,300 yards and rushed for 900.
Winner As usual, Boise’s defense has been elite, ranking fourth in yards per play and forcing more turnovers than all but four teams.
Nevada’s defense has been below average, and has really struggled over the last few games. The Wolf Pack haven’t forced many turnovers either.
Special Teams
Boise’s punt and punt return teams have done well, but that’s about it as far as special teams play.
Winner Nevada’s special teams play is middle-of-the-road according to Football Outsiders. They have made 8 of 11 field goals.

The Winner Is

Colorado State v Boise State
Winner Boise State
2 out of 4

If Boise’s offense can maintain some of the momentum it has built over the last two games, the Broncos should get the victory.
