Boise State Preview: Q&A with One Bronco Nation Under God

Our Boise State counterparts were kind enough to answer a few questions to help us get ready for this weekend's opponent The UConn Blog: Can you give us the 60-second scouting report on this year's Boise State football team? Boise State runs the ball very well, but is all in on Jay Ajayi ...he is pretty much Lone Wolf McQuade in the backfield. Boise State passes the ball moderately well... Grant Hedrick completes a high perecentage of passes, but hasn't spread the ball around very much and has been a tad interception prone .
