BOISE, Idaho — Boise State is set to host UT Martin Saturday in Albertsons Stadium in its first home contest since November 2021. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. MT on Fox Sports 1.
While Bronco Nation may be dwelling on the fact this is supposed to be a matchup on The Blue with Michigan State, not an FCS opponent, the Skyhawks are not to be taken lightly.
UT Martin boasts a balanced offensive attack, leading the Ohio Valley Conference and ranked second in the FCS with an average of 330.5 passing yards per game.
Graduate quarterback Dresser Winn is yet to be sacked in 2022. Winn has completed 51-of-78 passes (65.4%), tallying six touchdowns to just one interception.
Last week against New Mexico, the Boise State defense recorded 12 tackles for loss for the 13th time since 2005. Nine different Boise State players appeared in the tackle-for-loss column, with EDGE George Tarlas (3), cornerback Caleb Biggers (2) linebacker Ezekiel Noa (1.5) and defensive tackle Scott Matlock (1.5) leading the way.
The Broncos also generated six sacks against the Lobos, pushing Boise State's record to 27-1 in games since 2005 when recording five or more sacks.
