From what I read both teams are starting quarterbacks with no experience. One played behind Cousins, the other played behind Moore. Last I saw the odds are saying MSU by 7 but you never know when Boise has an entire off season to prepare. They're usually pretty tough.

Boise always plays their heart out first game of the season. The game sets up their entire run for playing aBCS buster every year, so I expect them to come out with a lot of different formations in an attempt to confuse the blitz and defensive scheme of MSU.

The real question will be how MSU's offense performs against a normally underrated Boise defensive squad.

either way, tailgating starts in a few hours....

In my view this is one of the legitimate criticisms to Boise's BCS runs. A lot of teams with a decent amount of talent can do pretty good the first game of the season because they have been focused on that one game plan for months. The hard part is doing it week after week with a 7 day turn around. I'm not saying Boise isn't good, because they are damn good on most Saturdays but it's different playing quality opponents week in and week out. It creates wear and tear that can really wear you down over the course of a season.

my point is that large conferences with crossover games between division can create really unbalanced schedules. last year tennessee's western division foes were alabama, lsu, arkansas. meanwhile georiga played auburn (who had lost most of their team), miss state (awful), and ole miss (god awful). personally, i loved what the pac-10 had 9 conference games and a complete round robin. 12 was bad enough, 14 is stupid, and 16 is full tard. of course 12, 14, and 16 each produce more money so we know what will happen.

You make some good points. It's not really a solvable problem with these mega conferences and it's gonna lead to some perhaps possibly undeserving conference 'champions' at some point. The playoff problem is a little bit bigger than just setting up a playoff if a conference championship is all it takes to get a seat at the table. Not sure how to handle that. The schedulers don't know how good everyone is going to be.

Yeah, because, you know, like the other team doesn't have the entire off season to prepare for BSU. Totes didn't see them coming. I thought we were playing Duke!

The excuse making by teams that get the shiat kicked out of them by Boise State is more entertaining than the games themselves.

BSU's quarterback is a Redshirt Junior, who has been well groomed as well. I think the two teams are a wash at QB

Running Backs - I don't know, toss up

Receivers - BSU's receivers were all new last year, MSU's are all new this year, I think BSU has a slight edge

Special Teams - I give this to MSU, I have no faith in our kickers

Defense - BSU's DL will be strong, but their secondary kept getting burned last year. I think MSU has the stronger defense

This is one of those games that come down to line play, MSU DLine vs BSU OLine BSU DLine vs MSU OLine

I have no idea who is going to win, but I am totally excited that football is back 5 hours to kickoff

//Go Broncos!!!

I root for Boise too, but I have a feeling that Spartan defense is going to shut both Southwick and Harper down. I like the Spartans covering the spread in this one, unfortunately.

Who should it have been out of the east then? South Carolina was the only other good team in the division and their star running back was injured. I really doubt they would have done any better. After Lattimore was hurt they only averaged 18 points/ game in their remaining SEC schedule.

ModernPrimitive01: Wow, Vols love on fark? Now I have seen everything


I have attended two colleges in my life- Kentucky, and UTSA.

Kentucky won the NCAA Championship in basketball, and ended that ridiculous streak against Tennessee in football. UTSA's playing their first season in FBS (and second overall). I am so sports content, I can't even raise more than token hate towards the Vols.

UK's going to suck, UTSA's best-case scenario is to be average in the WAC, and I'm fine with that. If those two teams combine to have a .500 record, it'll be a minor miracle.

No, Kirk, the reason Brady Hoke decided to go ahead and punish Toussaint right before the "biggest game of the year" was so he had a scapegoat for when they lose by 30.

Yeah that's gonna suck because most likely UGA will be there again this year bit with an actual shot at winning if the defense performs like its supposed to and they get any offense.

And his old is that article? Rogers isn't there any longer and UT may end up 3rd or 4th again......

That being said if the ACC doesn't win one of the games against also-rans from the SEC this weekend they should be barred from any BCS games.

I'll say it BSU isn't good, they are good for their shiat conference but never act like they would finish above .500 in a real conference. Just like Utah getting smacked last year but everyone wants to ignore that fact.
