This week’s matchup features some renewed interest in the offense for the Broncos. The second half ‘splosion against SDSU has given the Bronco fandom something to be super-excited about. The three-headed monster of Taylen Green, George Holani, and Ashton
Martin Jeanty will–hopefully–be on display against a Fresno State that is reeling from a surprising loss to UCONN. And the Bulldogs will be without star QB Jake Haener due to a high ankle sprain which could be another opportunity for the Broncos defense (especially the d-line) to be aggressive.
So enough with the words, lets get to the guessing!
Here are the rules:
We are going to keep this simple this year on the predict the scores. No need to overly complicate this.
Guess the actual score as close as you can (obviously) but in the event that no one gets the score 100% correct, we are going to go with how close you guys were. Just… just make my job easier and get it right from the outset, mmkay?
- Tiebreakers: Let’s just not have ties, ok? I just need this to be fairly straight forward and easy on everyone. Especially since we aren’t going to be having any awards.
- Always choose the Broncos to win. No matter the odds. Picking against the Broncos risks a lifetime ban. I’m kidding of course. But seriously.
- Good luck to everyone making their respective guesses and I hope it’s an early evening.
I still don’t know what this offense is capable of. Without a passing game, predicting high (and fast) scoring seems iffy. I”m going to say 32-17 Broncos.
The Broncs 45 Buck Fresno 17
I think (hope) the offense scores points in the first half this game which will set them up to score even more points in the second half.
I’m with Bob K. I understand Whats-his-name’s reluctance but I’m seeing a mid-forties to the middle-teens game. Fresno will be bringing their best game. But you know what, I’m going to hang it out there; 52 – 17.
No Haener, we give up at most 14 pts if our defense continues to do its thing. I am also feeling a couple chip ins from my boy Jonah Buckets. Give me 34-13 Broncos
Boise – 38
Fresno – 10
Fresno’s offense without Haener doesn’t exist.
BSU – 42
FSU – 17
Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
33-10 Boys in Blue
I don’t think they’re gonna be able to get much on our defense without Haener.
As for the Broncos, I’m gonna need to see more than one half of explosive offense to up my score guesses.
I’m hoping for a bigger win, but still very cautiously optimistic. Fresno has had a week to watch Green prance around the field so they will have someone spying him. I still see us getting points but I worry about turnovers and errors that can happen with a freshman QB and improving O-line.
D will be good but after the UTEP game, I’m less confident. Fresno is better than San Diego State on O, even without Haener.
Let’s see the Bronco Defense continue to dominate & watch the offense rise on Homecoming!
Fresno will only score via the field goal.
42 – 9
FSU 9 vs BSU 42
Our D holds another team to no TDs baby! We get a few more turnovers this game. WR Koetter throws and completes a pass. Maybe.
Fresno (not a) State 13
Milk can in Boise
If they could score 35 in the 2nd half last week, I’m hoping for slightly more for the entire game.
41-10, good guys
35-13 Boise State
24-10 BSU. I want to see more of this offense before I throw down the 50 burgers, which I really want to do!
Too early for a fifty-burg? Yeah, running games eat clock.
Dang, Eric beat me to it up above.
