The Boise Boise State Broncos are half way thru their bye-week and yet they still haven’t slowed down since beating Washington State this past Saturday. 

In the offseason running back, Jeremy McNichols decided to put down the cheeseburgers and focus on his diet heading into this season.  The tailback already leads the running back group with four touchdowns and 164 yards rushing on the ground.

This year he added 7 pounds to his frame and says that extra weight allows him to take extra hits when he fights for yards.

"I feel like I run more physical I put on the weight so I feel more confident taking those hits.  I take pride in not going down on the first contact I always want to run with my feet get those extra yards," said, Running Back Jeremy McNichols.
