Boise State (10-2) was tough to get a read on this season, finishing the regular season an even 6-6 against the spread. The Broncos failed to cover in a win their last time out as a 7.5-point favorite over the Nevada Wolfpack. The Huskies were 7-5 overall and 7-5 against the spread.
Boise State won the Mountain West with a 7-1 conference record, due mainly to a defense that emerged as one of the best in the country. The Broncos rank No. 9 in the nation in total defense.
