Why Boise State Will Win
Boise State has had a tremendous run this year and have gotten an all-conference performance from Chandler Hutchinson this year. However, it is not just Hutchinson, the role players have been complimentary pieces and stepped up during the season to help deliver some big wins for the Broncos.
Justinian Jessup and Christian Sengfelder are both scoring in double figures and have found games to show up big when Hutchinson has needed the help. Last time Boise State faced the Aztecs Hutchinson was too much to handle. Expect more of the same and the same result.
Why San Diego State Will Win
The Aztecs come into this game red hot, winning four straight and looking the best they have looked all season. They also get a lift as Malik Pope is set to return after missing the last game against San Jose State after a Yahoo Sports report identified him as taking a $1,400 from an agent.
The last time these two teams played the Aztecs played extremely well, however two things happen. Hutchinson went off and was unstoppable and the Broncos hit about 3-4 lucky shots that fell. Should the Aztecs play the same way then San Diego State has a great chance to come away with the win, especially at home.
