Thursday, August 28, 2014 8:00 PM ET
Georgia Dome

The Broncos finished last season on a disappointing three-game losing streak. They’ll try to snap that in their opener versus Ole Miss while also trying to improve on last year’s lackluster 3-3 ATS road record. Overall the Broncos were 6-7 ATS last season and only 1-3 ATS as the underdog.

The Rebels capped last season with a 25-17 win over Georgia Tech in the Music City Bowl. They also covered the small 3-point spread to improve their ATS record to 7-6. This neutral site matchup at the Georgia Dome isn’t great news for Ole Miss, following their 3-3 record ATS and SU away from home last season.

It's just the second time in 13 years Boise State has been a double-digit dog - they won at Oregon in 2008 (see the database for more trends).
