The Boise State Broncos finished fourth in the Mountain Division of the Conference. Boise State got off to a 5-1 start this season but went 3-3 down the stretch. The faithful in the “POTATO STATE” have been used to seeing the Broncos dominating the Mountain West Conference. Harsin and his staff have a long offseason and will hit the road recruiting. Will Boise State be motivated to play in this bowl game after being predicted to win the Conference? Freshman quarterback Brett Rypien is the future of the Broncos football program, he played up and down this season. Ryan Finley and Rypien shared the duties under center for most of the season, but the coaching staff prefers the true freshman.

Boise State lost football games to Air Force and New Mexico down the stretch and barely beat San Jose State to finish 8-4. The key to a Boise State win is to establish a rushing game with sophomore running back Jeremy McNichols.
The 2015 Northern Illinois Huskies got a signature win at Toledo when the Rockets were a top 25 team in the nation. NIU also played Ohio State tough on the road. Starting quarterback, Drew Hare was playing great football before he got hurt in the win at Toledo. Hare is out with an Achilles injury.
