CHALLENGES

Boise State presents yet another tough test for the Falcons. It’s bad enough playing on that all blue turf, not that Falcon fans have anything against blue, but if the Broncos show up wearing all blue there can be problems. Other than color schemes, the Broncs are a tough customer on both sides of the ball, they can score and on defense have held their most recent five opponents to under 20 points. The Falcons will need to have their offense clicking and the defense, which has been a disappointment most of the season, must do better if the Falcons are to get bowl eligible.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 8:15 p.m MT and can be seen on ESPN2.
