Boise State football survived BYU by a single point last year at home. Will the Broncos get by the Cougars again when they play in Provo on Friday night?
Boise State vs BYU live
Boise State takes on BYU for the sixth straight season. It is the eighth meeting all-time between the two teams going back to 2003. The Broncos have won six of the eight showdowns, and three of the eight have been decided by a single point.
That includes last year’s edition, won by Bryan Harsin‘s team on the Smurf Turf in Boise by a 28-27 score. BYU also fell 28-27 in 2004, and when they met again in 2012 the Broncos prevailed 7-6. The Cougars, though, have won two of the past four meetings by wide margins. Now back on fairly even footing, the series features two of the historically relevant mid-major powerhouses in the west.
