10* College Bowl Game of the Week
Boise State vs. Washington,
12/21/2019 19:30 EDT,
Score: 7 - 38
Point Spread: -3/-111 Washington
This is HC Washington's Chris Petersen's last game and it will be against the team he guided to a 92-12 record over eight seasons. Washington struggled in Pac-12 play, but it dominated in non-conference against teams like BYU and Hawaii. Boise State's better than those teams, clearly, but it's not a huge difference. Give me the size and talent in a highly-motivated Washington team.
The Huskies have enough RBs to handle the front 7 of Boise State. The Huskies need to play to their potential - when they have their RB double punch and their QB clicking - they are very tough to beat. I think head coach Chris Petersen will have them ready here.
Washington will likely play man to man and try and make Boise State beat them by pounding the ball with workhorse, George Holani - but, Boise State will not be able to beat the Huskies by running the ball. Washington can play enough man to man - and QB Jaylon Henderson will not beat them down the field. Washington will be a tough team for Boise State to contain - I see the Huskies switching the game mentality all day long.
Huskies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games.
