New Mexicos triple-option attack will force Boise States young defense, which played with so much passion last week, to focus on assignment discipline. If anyone gets out of position against the option, the result is usually a big play.
Its going to see if were physical, if we can play with great eyes and play disciplined,
senior cornerback Jamar Taylor said. Thats the first thing, because if we dont play disciplined, especially in the secondary, they can hit us over the top. This game is really going to show if were disciplined or not.
Like games against most option teams, one of the keys for the Broncos is not falling for all of the misdirection and ball fakes. It can be like a shell game.
Its kind of hard to not necessarily stop it but to see what theyre doing, senior nickel Dextrell Simmons said. Youve got to really pay attention to details. ... Everybody has a role on the team. Youve got to do your role.
The Lobos average 234.8 rushing yards per game. The Broncos allow 133.7.
Theyre going to hit us for yards, Taylor said. Its going to be a bend-but-dont-break mentality.
