Boise State hopes to continue it’s run of success against major conference opponents in this years Las Vegas Bowl. Arizona State’s players just hope to send Dennis Erickson out a winner. The Bronco’s are one of only two teams that have both an offense and a defense ranked in the top 20 this year (Wisconsin being the other) while the Sun Devils rely on a passing attack built around quarterback Brock Osweiler and receiver Gerrell Robinson. Osweiler should he declare projects to the early rounds and could move into the first round. Boise State defensive end Billy Winn, another early round prospect, will get after Osweiler all day. Sun Devil Vontaze Burfict is the highest rated player in this game but his mental lapses have scouts concerned. Quarterback Kellen Moore and running back Doug Martin are playing in their last collegiate games and will also be closely¬†monitored¬†by scouts.
