“We just need to come hard and believe we can get to the quarterback,” said Hadley. “We know it’s something we do well and we have to believe that, even though they haven’t given up a sack, we can provide a bigger challenge than anyone has so far this season.”
BYU will need to maintain good pressure and cornerbacks, particularly Jordan Johnson, will have to prove more effective in tackling in the open field as Boise likes to throw a lot of bubble screens out in the flat. Overall BYU should be able to limit the Broncos below their season average through the air.
Even though the team is saying all the right things, recovering from such a devastating loss a week ago to Utah isn't easy. Look for some emotional hangover in this game and for Boise State to take advantage of the Cougar’s current mental state. Boise State isn’t an easy place to play under any circumstances, and BYU will have a tough time coming out of there with a win.
