The Washington-Boise State Las Vegas Bowl matchup Saturday will feature two decent defenses, but Boise State overwhelms the Huskies when it comes to putting points on the scoreboard. In 2012, Boise State scored 47 touchdowns to Washington’s 38. Check out the differences in rushing yards, passing yards and total offense, and you’ll see that the Broncos present a formidable task for Steve Sarkisian’s Huskies, who were almost dead even statistically with their opponents this past season.
