There’s been so much press about TCU’s defense this year that it’s easy to forget that Boise State also had a phenominal year defensively.  TCU gave up 10.9 points per game, while the Bronco’s gave up just 12.2.  Offensively, Boise has a slight edge in total yards (457 to 417) and points per game (39.4 to 35.0), but, on paper, these teams are pretty evenly matched.  I’m sure Boise is a little disappointed to miss out on a BCS Bowl (you can’t blame them), but this isn’t the kind of team that rolls over, they come out and play their best to prove that they deserved nothing less.  I will say that TCU had a tougher schedule than Boise, the Horned Frogs lost to only Oklahoma and Utah, but, all things considered, I think the Broncos could have faired at least as well as TCU in either of those games, and could have beaten any of TCU’s other opponents this year.  I don’t know where the idea came from that this is a down year for the Broncos, but that seems to be the sentiment from many experts.  I will take them tonight, you just can’t picks against Boise State, period.

Predicted Score:  Boise State 31, TCU 24
