These teams last met back in the 2003 and 2004 season as Boise St was able to sweep the home and home series. The road team covered the point spread in each game. This is a tough spot for the BYU Cougars as they enter with a record of 2-1 on the season. They faced their longtime in-state rival the Utah Utes in a late night game on Saturday night and came away with a 24-21 road defeat in a game that finished well past 11PM on Saturday night Mountain Time. BYU does not take part in football activities on a Sunday so prep time is very minimal as they play a Boise St Broncos team that is improving from week to week. Another concern on the BYU side is how starting quarterback Riley Nelson handled the adversity playing a quality opponent on the road last week. He was not accurate completing less than half of his passes and looked rattled on the field. Boise St has a tremendous home field advantage and responded with a 39-12 home win last week against Miami Ohio Redhawks from the MAC conference following a week one defeat at Michigan St 17-13. We saw better play from first year starting quarterback Joe Southwick who hit on 24 of 31 throws for 304 yards with two touchdowns and one pick in the win.
