Boise State (2-0) survived a scare against Virginia Tech, 33-30, in DC and then blew away Wyoming on the road, 51-6. Heisman hopeful Kellen Moore has lived-up to expectations, throwing for nearly 600 yards with 5 touchdowns. He has been helped by a ground game that averages 4.6 yards per carry, with Doug Martin as the leading rusher. Moore likes to spread the ball around but his go-to guy is Titus Young, with 10 catches and a 17.4 average per catch. Virginia Tech was able to roll-up 314 yards of total offense and scored 4 touchdowns, including 3 from tailback Ryan Williams, so the Broncos are vulnerable to a good offense.
Let's take a look at a few trends in this College Football Predictions matchup. Chris Petersen is 15-4 ATS off a road win as coach of BOISE ST. Mike Riley is 2-11 ATS away in September College Football Lines games as coach of OREGON ST.
Can Oregon State (1-1) generate enough offense to make-up the 18-point deficit Vegas predicts? In their first two games, the Beavers scored 35 points in a victory over Louisville and 21 in a defeat to #6 TCU. Oregon State’s offense is fueled by the Rodgers’ boys – Jacquizz is the leading rusher with 207 yards and James is the leading receiver with 102 yards. Quarterback Ryan Katz completes less than 50% of his passes but has connected on 4 touchdown passes. Oregon State can score points but their defense gives them up in bushel loads too. They have given-up 30 and 28 points and the Broncos could score 50 against the Beavers.
Oregon State has enough offense to keep the game closer than +18 set by College Football Odds Makers at Sportsbook.com so predicting the Beavers can beat the Las Vegas odds is a tempting proposition. Don’t be fooled – the Broncos are for real and will beat-up on their foe from the PAC-10.
