Impact Players

Ashton Jeanty (BOISE) Runningback - Gained 1,262 yards rushing and 552 receiving on the season. Added 19 touchdowns as well. As Ashton Jeanty goes Boise State also will go he is the do-it-all player for this offense.

Andrew Simpson (BOISE) Linebacker - 60 tackles on the season with 6.5 sacks and 2 interceptions. He has been all over the field for the Broncos this season making plays. He will have to continue to do more of the same against a very good UCLA offense.

Ethan Garbers (UCLA) Quarterback - The UCLA quarterback comes into this game with 984 yards passing with 9 touchdowns and 3 picks. He took over the quarterback position during the season and played well for most of his newfound opportunity. He will continue looking to show why he deserves to have the quarterback role going into next season.

Laiatu Latu (UCLA) Defensive Line - 49 tackles with 13 sacks and 2 interceptions on the season. The UCLA defense will need him to come up big in this game to slow down Ashton Jeanty.

Prediction - LA Bowl

As most people know Boise State is known as the 'giant killer' for what they have done to power five opponents in the past. Boise State won the Mountain West Conference this year and UCLA started the season pretty good, but ended up losing three of the last four. UCLA has an experienced quarterback in this game with a very good defense. The defense, even with losing a few guys should still be very good and they do enough to win this one by 4.
