Boise State ends its college football season by taking on the Utah Utes in the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl. The latest college football bowl odds for this game as posted by online sportsbook, Skybook have the Broncos favored by 17 points and the total set at 60.5.
The Broncos will attempt to stay focused and be ready for this bowl game although it has to be a huge disappointment. The Broncos spent most of the season ranked in the top five of the college football polls and were always among the discussion for what teams should play for the BCS Championship. All of that talk stopped when the Broncos lost a game to the Nevada Wolfpack that ended their run for an undefeated season.
Something similar happened to the Utah Utes this year as they climbed the rankings as high as No. 5 before meeting TCU in a pivotal matchup. The Horned Frogs destroyed the Utes and from there the Utes self-destructed. The lost the next week and had to salvage wins against San Diego State and BYU to end the season on a high note.

Utah has accumulated an impressive 12-3 record in bowl games and that include a nine game winning streak in bowl games.
