The Cowboys Take On the Broncos

The Cowboys Take On the Broncos

The Cowboys have really struggled to appear dominant the past two weeks of their non-conference schedule. Although a tough win is still a win and they head into their matchup against Boise State undefeated.

 

Spencer Sanders missed the first game due to covid protocol and had difficulty remaining consistent against Tulsa. But this week is his chance  to prove he can take control of the offense and lead the Cowboys effectively before conference play begins.

 

Boise State

 

In their previous matchup against UTEP, the Broncos looked very impressive. The explosive offense led by quarterback Hank Bachmeier shut down the Miners, by halftime the score was 41-13. Bachmeier threw two touchdowns and finished with 340 yards on 24 attempts. Another threat in Boise State’s arsenal is Andrew Van Buren who rushed for two touchdowns last weekend.

 

Not only was Boise State’s offense putting on a show, the defense forced six turnovers against the Miners.

 

Oklahoma State

 

Oklahoma State’s defense has been successful barricading any gaps for opposing running backs to squeak through. But the Cowboy’s secondary must remain focused to ensure the Broncos do not capitalize on opportunities.

 

Throwing 173 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception Sanders will be put to the test this Saturday. Considering this Broncos defense has forced 11 turnovers in the past two games, all eyes will look to Sanders to take care of the football.
