After an insane 47-46 win over Houston last week, BYU has a short week to prepare to welcome Boise State to LaVell Edwards Stadium on Friday night.

While this won't be Boise State's strongest squad of the past 10 years, BYU is in for a fight against a team that it has never beaten as the Cougars are 0-3 against the Broncos. BYU fought hard against the Broncos last season in Boise, but fell 7-6 despite the defense not giving up an offensive point.

From Jay Ajayi to Demarcus Lawrence, here's everything you need to know about the Broncos.
