BOISE STATES BUDDING OFFENSE VS. WYOMINGS POROUS DEFENSE
The Boise State offensive players have been saying it for weeks: Theyre close.
We all see it out there, senior wide receiver Chris Potter said after last weeks 32-7 win. Its one of those things where were slowly breaking through.
This could be the week where the dam breaks. The Broncos, whose only 40-point outburst this season was fueled by five Southern Miss turnovers, have addressed their preseason question marks. Junior quarterback Joe Southwick has completed 67 percent of his passes with two interceptions (non-Hail Mary division) in the past four games. Freshman tailback Jay Ajayi has allowed for a 1-2 punch in the run game. And sophomore Dallas Burroughs and junior Aaron Burks have emerged as dual deep threats.
Now they just need the unit to click.
On Saturday, the Broncos will face one of the Mountain Wests worst defenses with a patchwork secondary.
Weve got to get some things cleaned up, Boise State coach Chris Petersen said. If theyll continue to work as hard as they have been in practice, I know we can get in a better rhythm.
