After a nice warm-up courtesy of Fresno State, the Broncos dive headfirst into the league portion of their schedule with a road game against #13 San Diego State. The Aztecs have assembled a mildly unexpected, albeit impressive, start to the season.
Boise State is listed as a 6.5 point underdog heading into tonight's game but expect a much closer battle. Four of the last five games between the two have been decided by four or fewer point including the heartbreaking 63-62 loss last year in San Diego. A victory for the Broncos could be the Statement Game they've been looking to add to their résumé.
