Tall order after facing LSU, Stanford, Oregon and USC within a 5 week span. They finished the season strong other than the 18 point blown lead at Washington State, Husky defense is improved as they are quicker and fly to the ball. Boise defense has carried them this year and they did have a softer schedule. A few things stick out...Boise only beat Fresno State by ten and they have OWNED Fresno the past 5 years.They got beat by San Diego State and only beat Nevada by 6. This clearly is not the Boise of the past who were party crashers. Their offense has undergone some changes. I also like the fact that Washington now has Boise States old Defensive Coordinator from 2009. In a tough close game i am taking Washington to cover +5 1/2 and break Boise States grip of beating Pac 12 teams.
Washington + 5 1/2
Nice analysis...not just what I put in bold (however the bold stuff
). Don't know if I'll play it or not. Regardless
