Fiesta Bowl Preview

Fiesta+Bowl+Preview+

By Cory Purdom

In the Fiesta Bowl the Boise State Broncos and the Arizona Wildcats will face off. Boise State has Grant Hedrick who is their powerful quarterback. With Hedrick completing 70.9% of his passes and 8.89% average yards per play. Boise State had a lot of weapons they could use in this game against the Wildcats. Their running back Jay Ajayi with 1,689 rushing yards and 25 touchdowns. Boise State’s defense is struggling with in 65th ranking for points against and hopefully Arizona’s running back Nick Wilson. Nick Wilson has ran for 1,289 yards in rushing and with only 15 touchdowns, but with Boise State’s defense. Nick should have a good game thats if they give Nick the ball. Arizona’s quarterback Anu Solomon he has completed 58.0 % of his passes and has threw for 3,458 yards and 27 touchdowns. Arizona’s defense is 73rd in points against. Not the best either but his will be a offensive game.

Dee’s Corner

Our insider KSHB sports reporter Dee Jackson ways in on the games and gives his pick. For the Fiesta Bowl two teams with high expectations. Getting to the PAC-12 title game is no easy task, but Arizona found itself over matched by Oregon. Scooby Wright will be playing on Sunday’s someday. The linebacker has had helped keep this team in the National Spotlight. No “smurf turf” in Glendale, but Boise State brings an 11-2 record including an 8 game win streak landing them in the Mountain West Championship.I don’t know why, but Boise always seems like they have one more trick play up their sleeve to pull out the win!

Picks:

Matthew Owens:

Boise State, I like their team and I think that they will beat the a team from a major conference. Also Arizona just got steamrolled by Oregon. Everybody remembers the Boise State “Statue of LIberty” play to beat Oklahoma on a 2 point conversion in overtime a couple of years ago. It may come down to that again.I think they win by a last second field goal or another last second sensational play.  This will be a game of offense teams. Boise State wins 38-35.

Corey Purdom:

Arizona wins 37-35.[polldaddy poll=8536092]
