It is always difficult to predict the final outcome of a sporting event-especially rivalry games…add to that playoff seeding implications and it becomes even more uncertain. Both teams are 4-2 in conference and Idaho is 8-5 and Boise State is 9-7* (had to forfeit a game due to 2014 sanctions-otherwise 9-6). They are a contrast in styles; Boise State relies on their attack unit to do the bulk of their scoring and Idaho relies on their midfielders. Both teams want to score on transition opportunities. The majority of the Boise State contributors are from California and the majority of Idaho’s contributors are from Idaho.
