This Saturday the Broncos will square off against the Utah State Aggies.  Last Season the Broncos struggled giving up 8 turnovers in a loss down in Logan. 

In that game, Boise State was without tailback Jeremy McNichols who sat out with a concussion.  The running department was unable to support the offense running for just 34 yards.  Fast forward to this season McNichols has 372 yards on the ground averaging nearly 8 yards a carry with 7 touchdowns.

“When one of your better players is not in, those things do show up with a guy that touches the ball significantly.  We have him in this game, so we’ll find out.

That remains to be seen until we go out there and get a chance to play and he gets a chance to be out there,” said, Head Coach Bryan Harsin.

Mcnichols will look to be the spark to the offense Saturday He is coming off career-high 208 yards and three touchdowns in last week's win against Oregon State.
