Analysis: About as well-balanced as they come, Boise State finished the regular season ranked No. 38 in the country in both offensive (6.21) and defensive (5.24) yards per play — which helps explain how it ran through the Mountain West with relative ease. The Broncos went a perfect 8-0 in conference play during the regular season, and suffered only one loss overall: a 28-25 defeat at BYU.

Washington Betting Stats & 2019 Season Profile

  • Season Record: 7-5
  • Against-the-Spread Record: 7-5
  • Conference: P12
  • Offense Yards Per Play Rank: 60
  • Defense Yards Per Play Rank: 30
  • S&P+ Special Teams Rank: 2

Analysis: Chris Petersen will step down as Washington’s head coach after his worst season in four years. The Huskies had won double-digit games in the previous three. Washington was a little better than its 7-5 record would indicate, as its second order win total ranked 128th of 130 teams — that statistic indicates the Huskies are more like a 9-3 team. Georgia transfer Jacob Eason had his ups and downs at quarterback, and struggled in November before righting the ship a little bit against Washington State. Prior to that, he hadn’t topped 6.1 yards per attempt in three straight games. The Huskies were also average on defense compared to the units from the past few years. They ranked No. 69th in success rate and No. 45 in explosiveness against. — Steve Petrella
