Boise State vs. New Mexico: Game Info, Preview and Prediction

New Quarterback Alert: Boise State vs. New Mexico

This Saturday, fans can expect a major change in the Boise State program as Eric McAlister leaves and Maddux Madsen is announced as the starting quarterback. The game will kick off at 8:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) at Albertsons Stadium in Boise, Idaho.

The match will be broadcasted on Fox Sports 1 and available for streaming on the Fox Sports App. For radio coverage, tune in to KBOI 670 AM/KBOI 93.1 FM (Bronco Radio Network).

In their head-to-head, Boise State leads the all-time series 12-1 against New Mexico, with the Lobos’ only victory occurring back in 2015. The last time these teams met, Boise State secured a 31-14 win in Albuquerque.

Quarterback Maddux Madsen, who has been taking on a significant number of snaps in recent weeks, has officially been named the starting QB. However, Head Coach Andy Avalos confirmed that both Madsen and Taylen Green will see playing time. The game plan raises questions about Green’s future with the Broncos, especially after the departure of key receiver Eric McAlister from the program.

The void left by McAlister’s departure will put pressure on the remaining Broncos receivers, with Stefan Cobbs being the next closest in terms of yards and touchdowns. New Mexico, led by UAB transfer Dylan Hopkins, brings a solid offense to the table with receivers who have recorded consistent yardage.

On the defensive end, Boise State’s performance against Fresno State showed room for improvement, especially in their secondary. This presents an opportunity for New Mexico’s offense to exploit weaknesses. However, if Boise State can control the clock and make strategic plays, they have a good chance of securing a victory.

In conclusion, while Boise State may be facing challenges, they are still favored to win the game. A victory on Saturday will bring them one step closer to maintaining their bowl eligibility streak. The final prediction is Boise State Broncos 38, New Mexico Lobos 21.
