Boise State vs San Jose State Depth Chart

New, 10 comments
NCAA Football: Boise State at San Jose State Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Boise State is already in California right now, preparing to move past the BYU game by taking on a resurgent San Jose State. San Jose has been...well, not good (to put it extremely charitably) the last few years, but this year they find themselves in the midst of a downright average year at 4-4. However, in the case of the Spartans, ‘average’ is a great thing as they had only won three games in their previous two seasons, combined. They also have themselves a legitimately good quarterback in Josh Love that is not only the best QB in the conference with that last name, but might just be one of the best Mountain West QBs in general. With that information as a backdrop, let’s get into the personnel that will be counted on to ensure that the Broncos don’t experience a letdown in San Jose...

Notable Changes

It might be apparent to you that there is actually nothing different about the official depth chart. This one looks exactly like the one that was distributed to the media prior to the last game. Against BYU, Chase Cord ultimately started despite Hank Bachmeier being listed higher on the depth chart. All signs point to Hank being back to full strength for this week.

Something else to keep an eye on is the fact that Rob Mahone is currently the player listed first on the depth chart at running back, despite an injury that kept him out of most of the BYU game. In a real twist of irony, however, the running back that has the most production in the Bronco backfield, George Holani, is actually listed behind Mahone and Andrew Van Buren on the depth chart. So, we’ll see how that plays out.

And, as always...GO BRONCOS!
