The Boise St. Broncos are set to return to the football field on Saturday, two weeks after dropping the season opening, 17-13 to the Michigan St. Spartans. On Saturday, the Broncos will play host to the Miami (OH) Redhawks.

Despite dropping the season opener, and dropping out of the AP and USA Today top 25 rankings, the Broncos are a considerable favorite on Saturday. Current odds list the Broncos as 20.5-point favorites over the Redhawks.

Miami (OH) is coming off of a 30-14 win over Southern Illinois in Week 2. The Redhawks, however, were thrashed by Ohio St. in the season opener, losing 56-10.

As the Broncos look to climb back into the top 25 rankings, they too will be looking to thrash Miami (OH). While the Redhawks don't boast a running back as good as Le'Veon Bell, Boise St. will certainly have to tighten up the run defense, as they allowed Bell to rush for over 200 yards in the Week 1 loss.

Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. MT in Boise, Idaho. Televised coverage can be found on NBC Sports Network.
