Last December, Boise State ran into a buzzsaw when they made the trek to Salt Lake City. Utah shot 67.5% from the floor on the way to a 76-55 win over the Broncos. It was an emotional night for the Utes who were honoring the late, great Rick Majerus, and Drmic and Elorriaga combined for three points. Definitely not a recipe for success for this offense.
Two undefeated teams will take to the hardwood and this game will go a long way to uncovering just how things have progressed for both teams. For Boise State, just how good is this team? So far, they haven't played any high-quality opponents. Utah will be a better barometer by having better athletes if nothing else. For Utah, how good is this team after turning over nearly half of their roster?
