Fresno State vs Boise State Prediction & Pick
The Fresno State-Boise State rivalry has been one-sided since it began in 1996, resulting in 16 wins for the Broncos in 21 meetings. Last year's matchup was ugly for Bulldogs fans as Boise State walked away with the 40-14 victory on the road.
At the end of the day, Fresno State's defense just isn't good this season, whereas Boise State has scored 30-plus points in each of their victories this season. The Broncos are also allowing just 22.0 points per game (No. 31), which could be trouble for a Bulldogs offense that's had issues scoring the ball while going 0-2 on the road this fall.
Boise State is the better team here and should walk out with a decisive victory.
Final Score Prediction: Boise State: 27 | Fresno State: 17

A grand total of 13 of Boise State's 16 victories over Fresno State have been. by double digits. Of course, that includes last year's 26-point win margin. Given that the Bulldogs' defense has looked far from impressive this year, I could easily see the Broncos covering the 7.5-point spread here.
