Boise State (2-0) vs Oklahoma State (2-0) Game Preview
One Reason Why Boise State Will Win
Brilliant so far, everything has clicked offensively in blowout wins over Troy and UConn. Brett Rypien has yet to throw a pick for the nation’s third-most efficient passing game, the attack owns third downs, and the attack overall is averaging well over 600 yards per game.
The firepower is there to keep up if this turns into any sort of a road shootout.
The other side of the ball isn’t bad, either.
The defense has ben a rock against the run and it isn’t allowing much of anything deep. Granted, Troy and UConn don’t have big-time passing games, but still, the defense has been a rock so far in two stress-free performances.
The team is totally tuned up and ready for a game like this.
One Reason Why Oklahoma State Will Win
Oklahoma State has had its scrimmages, too, and it’s all working.
SW Missouri State and South Alabama aren’t exactly Missouri and Alabama, but still, the Cowboys needed the layups to get the new parts to the passing game working.
Taylor Cornelius has thrown three picks, but he’s also been explosive as the new main man under center, connecting on several big plays and hitting 67% of his passes. And best of all? There’s a rested and ready Justice Hill ready to go.
The star running back hasn’t been needed so far, carrying the ball just 19 times and averaging over eight yards per carry. He might not bust loose a whole slew of big runs against this Bronco D, but he’s ready to be a workhorse if needed.
The respective punting games might be the other key. Boise State hasn’t needed to boot it too much, but it’s averaging under 30 yards per try so far. Oklahoma State’s punters are averaging 46 yards per pop.
