Oregon Ducks losing early to Boise State

COURTESY BOISE STATE UNIVERSITY- Boise State coach Bryan Harsin will lead the Broncos in Saturday's Las Vegas Bowl game against Oregon

The Broncos will try to end a three-game losing streak against Power 5 opposition.

This Boise State team isn't the same Boise State team we're used to seeing over the years, and the Broncos didn't exactly have the toughest schedule in the world this season.

That's right: The same play that won the Broncos the 2007 Fiesta Bowl just gave OR its first points of the day.

After a 10-3 regular season performance, the Boise State Broncos are thrilled to be competing in a bowl game.

Here's why OR will "upset" Boise State in the 2017 Las Vegas Bowl.

One of the most memorable meetings between the two programs came in 2009, when former Ducks running back LeGarrette Blount, who now plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, punched Boise State's Byron Hunt and sparked an all-out brawl. Some player decisions have been made the last two days with Offensive Lineman Tyrell Crosby suiting up for the Las Vegas Bowl, Royce Freeman will not play in the game. With Herbert, Oregon is averaging 52 points per game, compiling more than 550 yards in each.

One Oregon player is embodying that rallying cry.

The Ducks wrap up against Boise State in a game that also serves as the starting point for Mario Cristobal's tenure as UO coach. This will be a low-scoring affair with a Bryce Love-Darius Anderson running back battle. Do I want to see him play? OR will also be led by a Heisman Candidate at Quarterback next season under Justin Herbert. Well, the execution did not go well at all, and it resulted in a Troy Dye 86-yard return for a touchdown off the fumble. Defensively, Boise State is allowing 22.5 points and 336.7 yards per game. Cedrick Wilson and A.J. Richardson have combined for 1,784 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Jake Roh has 39 receptions.

The Ducks, down 24-0 with roughly 40 seconds remaining in the half, faced a potential 31-0 deficit with Boise State driving at the Ducks' 10-yard line.

Junior Tony Brooks-James has healed from an injury suffered in the win over Oregon State three weeks ago.
