Why Boise State can cover

The Broncos had a strong first half against UT Martin on Saturday, building a 20-7 lead while gaining 251 of their 327 total yards in the game. George Holani played a major role in the victory as he rushed 24 times for 110 yards and a touchdown, hauled in four passes for 47 yards and a score and returned five punts for 69 yards. The 100-yard rushing performance by the redshirt junior was the eighth of his career.

Quarterback Hank Bachmeier spread the ball around against the Skyhawks, completing 18 passes to nine different receivers. The senior made a pair of touchdown tosses to increase his career total to 40, moving him into eighth place on Boise State’s all-time list. Bachmeier is tied for sixth in school history with 21 200-yard passing efforts after registering 204 versus UT Martin.

Why UTEP can cover

The Miners struggled against the run in Saturday’s setback, allowing the Lobos to gain 188 yards on the ground, but defended the pass well. UTEP limited New Mexico to 111 yards through the air and did not allow a passing touchdown. It also got to Lobos quarterback Miles Kendrick twice, with Cal Wallerstedt registering both sacks.
