Boise State Broncos Roster 2019 Broncos Roster

Head Coach: Bryan Harsin        2017 Salary: $1,550,004        Offensive Coordinator: Zak Hill        Defensive Coordinator: Andy Avalos         

Stadium: Albertsons Stadium       Surface: Turf        City: Boise        State: Idaho Boise State may be the nation's best kept secret in 2018. This program has quietly pieced together a few incredible seasons, none more memorable than the Statue of Liberty play that led them past Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. While the program is 11 years removed from this occurrence, they still have been able to run some good talents through their program. Jared Zebransky, Kellen Moore, Doug Martin, and Jay Ajayi mark incredible talents that have performed on the famed blue-dyed field. The biggest area of difficulty for this program is being stuck in an underwhelming conference. The Mountain West doesn't hold the fire-power of a Pac-12, SEC, or ACC conference, but it has been home to many conference championships for Boise State. Being seen as a title contender calls for perfection from this top-25 team, which is something they are up to challenge in 2018.

Their run starts at the quarterback position with Brett Rypien at the helm. Rypien enters his senior season with the program and is looking to bounce back from injury. Injuries seemed to dampen the level of consistency and confidence Rypien was used to. He favored the short-distance play and limited his looks downfield. Increasing his health has rejuvenated this talented product as he eyes big accolades in 2018. He only losses one weapon at wide receiver, which helps keep that confidence level high. The university is known for their running back production and pro-talent tangibles, which is something that has seemed to revive Alexander Mattison. Mattison took a sub-par, early-season body of work and transformed it into consistent averages and gaudy numbers at the tail-end of the season. Building off the things that got him to the end of the season will translate into a positive outlook on 2018.

The edge rush on defense is second to none in the M-West. The numbers that these ends put up last season placed them in contention with the bigger conferences, applying a supremacy that should keep this front unit sound in 2018. The next two tiers return all of their guys, complimenting a front 4. Depth has also been off-set with yet another solid recruiting class. Recruiting around Idaho limits the talent pool to pick from, which always places promise on a recruiting class that finishes near the top-50 in the nation.

A favorable schedule keeps Boise State on their toes. There are limited areas to build their resume, so they are going to have to keep title hopes alive through margin of victory. Perfection is the only option and large, overpowering wins will be key in the eyes of the committee. The only contest that begs precedence is when Boise travels to Stillwater to face Oklahoma State. If OSU can gain some ground within the Big-12 by that point in the season, a win would increase the meaning of this contest. Watch this Boise State team with a close eye, as their schedule favors an undefeated campaign in 2018.
