The Broncos will be returning 16 starters from a team that went 5-2 in the abbreviated pandemic-plagued ’20 season.  The team has plenty of critical talent that includes quarterbacks Jack Sears and Hank Bachmeier, and senior receiver Khalil Shakir.  UCF will certainly prove to be an early test.

On offense, Boise State only scored 37 total points in their last two games of 2020.  They will have a new offensive coordinator for the 2021 season.  They still finished number one in scoring in the Mountain West with 33.9 points per game.  While Junior quarterback Hank Bachmeier has played well, he will face some tough competition from USC transfer Jack Sears.

Oregon transfer Cyrus Habibi-Likio should help a running line that returns four starters after suffering its worst performance since 1993 (107.1 yards per game and 3.3 yards per carry).

Boise State’s new head coach Andy Avalos has more expertise on the defensive side of things having been defensive coordinator for the team from 2016-18.  Plenty of talent returns and junior defensive tackle Scott Matlock should excel after posting 4.5 tackles for a loss and two blocked kicks in 2020.

Boise State pays $50,000 on a $100 bet should they go on to win the 2022 College Football Championship.  They are favored to win UNDER 9 regular season games at -140 while paying out $110 for every $100 bet to win more games than that number.

Former Auburn coach Gus Malzahn takes over in Orlando after Josh Heupel took the top spot at Tennessee.  Quarterback Dillon Gabriel is highly capable and will be helped out through a series of talented transfers, among them former Auburn running back Mark-Antony Richards, a promising young talent, and Isaiah Bowser.   Gabriel's 3,570 passing yards ranked fifth in FBS.  With 32 touchdown passes, he only had four interceptions.  They do lose a top target in Marlon Williams at wide receiver.

UCF's weak area will be on the defense with depth an issue in 2020.  They do get back tackle Kalia Davis from opt-out along with incoming defensive line transfers All-SEC player Big Kat Bryant and Ricky Barber Jr., a Freshman All-American at WKU. Tre'Mon Morris-Brash was UCF's best pass rusher with 3.5 sacks in 2020.

UCF also pays out $50,000 on a $100 bet with a College Football Championship victory.  They are priced at -115 on both the OVER and UNDER 9.5 regular season wins.
