College Football Predictions - Boise State Ranked #4 After Undefeated 2009 Season: A year ago, the Boise State Broncos were the surprise of the 2009 college football picks season, going undefeated at 14-0 after defeating TCU in the Fiesta Bowl. This year, the Broncos are one of the favorite college football picks to get to the national championship game in Glendale. Preseason rankings have them as the #4 team in the country and Vegas odds makers have given the Broncos 10-1 college football odds of reaching the BCS title game.
However, all of the preseason college football predictions and rankings will mean not a thing if Boise State doesn’t take care of business on the road. The quest for the BCS starts for this team, literally, on September 6 against Virginia Tech. Opening days of the college football picks season couldn’t get much tougher. The Broncos will have to travel across country to face the Hokies at FedEx Field in suburban Washington, DC. A loss in the regular college football predictions season opener will not kill their 2010 season but, unlike teams from major conferences, the Broncos chances of recovering from a drop in the polls will be slim.
The Broncos have the team to carry the day, though. Start with junior quarterback Kellen Moore, who has put-up impressive numbers in his two years as a starter. The Broncos roll out three wide receivers and have a 1,000-yard receiver in senior Titus Young and a game-breaker in fellow senior Austin Pettis. The duo combined for 24 touchdowns in 2009.
Senior strong safety Jeron Johnson returns to lead a defense that was prone to giving-up points in 2009. The defense starts 10 of 11 upperclassmen on defense, and are deep at the linebacker position and on the defensive line. The line has been a trouble spot in the past so they will need to improve.
College Football Predictions, Picks & NCAA odds Forecast
Boise State is dominated the WAC conference in the decade of the 2000s and there is no reason to think that won’t change in 2010 college football picks season. They play Nevada, their stiffest competition on the road, but there are few other challenges on the collegge football odds schedule. That Virginia Tech game, then, looms especially large. Beat the Hokies, and the Broncos might just crash the BCS party in Glendale.
