Poinsettia Bowl Pick
Boise State vs Northern Illinois

Broncos vs Huskies Preview

The Huskies finished 8-5 and runners up in the MAC, but enter the bowl season with an uncertain quarterback situation due to myriad injuries at the position. Boise State will fall short of double digit wins for just the third time since 2002, but can salvage somewhat of a down season with a bowl victory.

Poinsettia Bowl Prediction

These are not the same Broncos you are used to seeing in Bowl Games. There is a drop off in talent and coaching this year and it will show against a Northern Illinois team. I have the Huskies as a touchdown favorite so to be getting 9 points is a Christmas gift.

Score Prediction: Huskies 31 – Broncos 21
