Boise State Vs. Toledo: Can Kellen Moore Be Impeded?

Last week, the Toledo Rockets nearly "shot down" the Ohio St. Buckeyes, but "exploded" ... not closely enough. What are their chances of pulling off an even bigger, if less locally satisfying, upset against the No. 5 Boise State Broncos? Boise State blog One Bronco Nation Under God doesn't see it happening:

Kellen Moore and the Boise State offense will get their points, at least 28 of them and probably more. Can Toledo keep up? I think that will be the question on Friday night, and despite putting the fear of God into the Buckeyes, the Rockets might not come up with an answer they'll like. Boise State is no Ohio State, and I mean that in a good way.    

Hustle Belt, the blog of MAC culture, is likewise dismissive of Toledo's chances at making headlines for a second week in a row:

I see Boise State, and their talent is amazing. Their coaching is amazing. Toledo is good, but not good enough. They might hang in there before Kellen Moore throws around that Rocket defense.    

That defense is a common concern. OBNUG had a word with Rockets blog Let's Go Rockets (they like the Rockets), who likewise fret about Toledo's chances of stopping the Boise State attack, but adds a worrying note about discipline:

The weakness of this year's team so far has been the mental mistakes causing unforced errors. The Rockets were flagged 14 times for 102 yards against O$U. Several of those were illegal formation calls while punting. Gotta keep their heads in the game.    

Kellen Moore carving up a team that doesn't know how to punt! Tune in for a pretty fun game!
