Game Day Vitals: Boise State vs. Wyoming - 03/01/14

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

An Afternoon in Laramie

It's actually not that hard to figure out why Boise State hasn't lived up to expectations this season. Offensive efficiency and late-game decision-making have played their part, sure. But, the true reason is that Boise State's defense has been flat out abysmal and has clearly regressed since last season.

Here's the year-to-year comparison:

Points Allowed: 65.5 (2012-2013) 69.8 (2013-2014)

Points Allowed per Possession: 1.0 (2012-2013)   1.05 (2013-2014)

Opponent FG %:   44.9% (2012-2013)   46.5% (2013-2014)

Opponent 3FG%:   34.8% (2012-2013)   37.5% (2013-2014)

Turnovers Forced: 13.1 (2012-2013)   11.2 (2013-2014)

Fouls per game:   18.7 (2012-2013)   19.3 (2013-2014)

If the Broncos do want to make some noise this month, it has to start on defense.
