Game Previews:

What to Watch For:

  • Boise State: The Broncos will unveil a new offense. How will it look? Especially going up against a ranked team right out of the gate. And will the offensive line be an anchor or will they pull their weight (pun intended)?
  • New Mexico: Can the defense start how they finished in 2020 and be a strength of the team? And will the offense take a step forward with their new QB at the helm?
  • UNLV: This is one of the few changes the Rebels have to get a victory this season. Doing so in their first game will set a more positive tone for the season. Will the QB play be improved? And can the defense stop anyone?
