Game day if finally here for Boise State vs. Arizona in the Fiesta Bowl. After nearly a month layoff the Broncos and Wildcats will meet on the field on New Year's Eve. This is the first time that these two teams have met and for each their third trip to the Fiesta Bowl.
This game features a great matchup of Arizona's fast defense going up against a Boise State offense that can be very explosive. The Wildcats are led by consensus All-American Scooby Wright and Boise State has All-American running back Jay Ajayi. Both teams have more than that.
The Wildcats have a very good running back in their own right in true freshman Nick Wilson has rushed 217 times for 1,289 yards and 15 touchdowns and is averaging 5.9 yards per carry. The Broncos have Kamalei Correa who led the Mountain West in sacks with 10 and had 17 tackles for a loss.
Both teams average over 35 points per game, so the difference could come down to what defense makes the big play or stop.
