Last week BYU’s quarterback carousel threw a wrinkle at Boise State forcing the team to prepare for up to five different quarterbacks.

This week it's the Broncos who will keep their opponents guessing? In Saturday's game at San Diego State, the Broncos could go with either of their quarterback options.

Starter Brett Rypien has struggled this season picking up his first touchdown pass of the year just last week.

Meanwhile senior transfer Montell Cozart has completed more than half his passes and quickly shown he can lead the Bronco offense.

"Both quarterbacks are very good players and both quarterbacks have a little different expertise when they bring them in.  It's not an internal offense but what they emphasize on is different depending on what quarterback is in there, so basically you are getting ready two teams in the same week," said San Diego State Head Coach Rocky Long.

Saturday's game is also projected to be a big one as the San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting an expected crowd of more than 43,000 people.

Both teams were picked to win their respective divisions in a preseason media poll.  The two teams have split the last four games that they've played against each other.

Coach Harsin expects another tough battle on Saturday.

"I thought when we played them a couple of years ago we played physical and we beat them and that's really the key to the game.  It’s a really good opportunity for us they are really good at what they do and we really have to be good at what we do," said Head Coach Bryan Harsin.
