Boise State vs. Nevada goes off Friday (Today), 10:15 pm Eastern – ESPN 2

The last remaining test for third-ranked Boise State takes place on Friday night as they travel to Reno to face 19th ranked Nevada.  Boise is in position to play for the college football betting BCS national championship if either Oregon or Auburn lose one of their remaining games but they first have to take care of Nevada.  This could be the first time that Boise will be tested since Nevada has won 11 straight at home.

Boise State has the nation’s longest winning streak at 24 games but to make it 25 they will have to find a way to slow down the Nevada offense. The Wolf Pack are fourth in the country in scoring and third in total offense.  That is just behind Boise State who is second in scoring.  Both teams have excellent quarterbacks as Boise is led by Kellen Moore who is No. 1 nationally as he has completed 71.8 percent of his passes with 28 touchdowns and five interceptions. Moore has thrown for 676 yards with eight touchdowns in his two games against Nevada. Last season he threw five TDs in a 44-33 win over Nevada. On the other side, Colin Kaepernick can run and throw it.  He has been very good against Boise in his career with 625 yards and seven touchdowns through the air and 278 yards and two TDs on the ground.  Also a threat is running back Vai Taua who has 24 100-yard rushing games in his career. He is seventh in the nation averaging 124.1 yards per college football betting game. Boise State has the second best defense in the country so they could slow down Nevada’s offense on Friday night.  They are first in the nation against the run allowing just 72.3 rushing yards per game.

Nevada has not beaten Boise State since 1998. They have lost nine straight games to teams ranked in the Top 25. Here are more football betting stats for Friday.
