Boise St Broncos versus Virginia Cavaliers

College Football Daily Fantasy Picks 9-25-2015

The Boise St Broncos are on the road in out of conference play to meet the Virginia Cavaliers on Friday night college football. Fantasy college football draft GM’s can tune to ESPN TV on September 25th at 8PM Eastern Time to follow the results of their roster picks.

Boise St makes the road trip east to Virginia with a record of 2-1. In week one the Broncos had a defensive struggle against the Washington Huskies winning just 16-13 as they were held scoreless in the second half. In week two the Broncos travelled to BYU and coughed up a fourth quarter lead in a 35-24 road defeat. Last week they crushed an FCS school Idaho St. Bad news for the Broncos as they are without starting quarterback Ryan Finley who is out for two months with a broken ankle. The Broncos have put up some pedestrian offensive numbers this year ranking mid-pack in most categories. On defense the Broncos are 21st in yards allowed by allowing 286 yards a game.

Virginia Cavaliers are 1-2 on the campaign with a head coach on a hot seat. They opened up the year with a 34-16 road defeat at UCLA then in week two lost to Notre Dame at home by the score of 34-27. Last week the team struggled past FCS school William & Mary 35-29. Virginia has not been good on both ends of the ball. They are 90th in total offense by averaging 375 yards a game and struggling running the football. On defense the Cavaliers rank 102nd in yards allowed by giving up 102 yards per game and doing poorly against both the run and pass.

Boise St Broncos QB:

Brett Rypien:

With the injury to Finley the Broncos will go with a two quarterback system. In relief last week Rypien completed 8 of 9 throws for 126 yards. He had a long throw of 46 yards. Rypien is a freshman quarterback.

Thomas Stuart:

A sophomore Stuart saw action last week against Idaho St and completed 9 of 13 throws for 69 yards with a touchdown. He took three sacks against his FCS opponent.
