Brigham Young produced a stellar ending when it defeated Boise State last season but the Cougars dont want to rely on another late-game prayer. Adidas Superstar Iridescent 3D Wit/Colorful .The No. 14 Broncos would like to avoid another dose of anguish as they attempt to bolster their resume.Boise State (6-0) aims to remain unbeaten as well as avenge last years stunning defeat when it hosts BYU (4-3) in a nonconference game on the blue turf on Thursday night (10:15 p.m. ET on ESPN).The Broncos were one play from a victory last season when Cougars quarterback Tanner Mangum -- who is from the Boise suburb of Eagle, Idaho -- threw a 35-yard, fourth-down Hail Mary pass to Mitchell Juergens to give BYU a four-point lead with 45 seconds left.Free safety Kai Nacua added a 50-yard interception return to punctuate the Cougars unlikely 35-24 victory.The comeback hasnt been forgotten -- on either side -- and the BYU players are well aware the welcome mats wont be rolled out in Boise.Playing in Boise will be kind of a hostile environment, but Im excited to go there and play, sophomore linebacker Francis Bernard said.The Cougars arrive with a three-game winning streak that includes back-to-back victories over Michigan State and Mississippi State. BYU also provides a much-needed challenge for the Broncos, who are the second-highest ranked team from a non-power conference behind No. 11 Houston.Boise State defeated Pac-12 programs Washington State and Oregon State earlier this season. And a win over BYU would certainly increase the schools chances of landing a Cotton Bowl bid as the top team from a non-power league.The Broncos realize the Cougars might be the best team left on their schedule. Boise State is 4-2 in the previous six meetings between the schools.I think there is a rivalry there, senior receiver Thomas Sperbeck said. Were definitely looking forward to it, especially on a short week. It will be a great challenge for our team.Thursday could prove to a memorable night for Sperbeck, who has 38 receptions (six for touchdowns) while compiling a Mountain West-leading 701 receiving yards. He has 3,030 career yards, which ranks third in Boise State history behind Titus Young (3,063 from 2007-10) and Matt Miller (3,049 from 2011-14).Broncos running back Jeremy McNichols is coming off a momentous occasion. The junior rushed for a career-best 217 yards -- his second 200-yard outing of the season -- during Saturdays 28-23 victory over Colorado State.McNichols 40-carry night was highlighted by an 80-yard scoring run -- the third of at least that length in his college career. He has rushed for 775 rushing yards this season and has caught 20 passes for 263 yards.BYU also features a stellar running back in senior Jamaal Williams, who became the schools all-time leading rusher during Fridays 28-21 double-overtime victory over Mississippi State.Williams (3,468 yards) surpassed Harvey Unga (3,455 from 2006-09). He has rushed for 942 yards -- second-most nationally -- and 10 touchdowns this season.Williams complements senior quarterback Taysom Hill, who has passed for 1,420 yards and nine touchdowns while adding 324 yards and four scores on the ground.Hill grew up in the Eastern Idaho town of Pocatello but doesnt find it to be a special occasion to play in Boise, located in the southwestern part of the state.Not really, Hill said. Its Boise State and I grew up watching them, but the Treasure Valley is further away than Provo is to me and Pocatello. Its fun to go back and play in Idaho against a good program, but every week I am going to prepare the best I can. So in terms of preparation, its all the same.The Cougars are receiving solid play on the defensive side from Nacua. The senior is tied for the national lead with five interceptions and has 13 in his career.Bernard rolled up a career-high 16 tackles against Mississippi State to raise his season count to 48. Sophomore middle linebacker Butch Pauu and junior outside linebacker Fred Warner share the team lead of 51.BYU will try to slow down Broncos quarterback Brett Rypien, who leads the Mountain West with 1,622 yards and 12 touchdown passes.Boise State senior defensive end Sam McCaskill leads the Mountain West with 9 1/2 tackles for loss. He is second on the Broncos with five sacks behind sophomore nose tackle David Moa (5 1/2 sacks).Boise State allowed 20 fourth-quarter points before hanging on against Colorado State but coach Bryan Harsin remains unconcerned.Theres nothing weird about that, its a win, Harsin said. Watch college football. Every single week, its hard to win every single week. There are no apologies for a W. Goedkope Adidas Superstar Maat 40 . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. Adidas Yeezy Powerphase Nederland . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands. . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. Sydney FC have made their pitch to host the FFA Cup final, confident they can draw a big crowd and arguing its only fair the harbour city have a turn after Melbourne held last years decider.The Sky Blues will learn their opponent on Tuesday night after Melbourne City clash with defending champions Melbourne Victory in a derby semi-final at AAMI Park.After that, one of Australias biggest interstate rivalries will heat up as the winner vies with Sydney to host the showpiece event on November 29 or 30.A decade has passed since the Sky Blues last played a final at their Allianz Stadium home ground, where they won the 2006 A-League grand final.Now into their seventh season without silverware, the club is eager to break the drought in front of home fans.Chief executive Tony Pignata believed Allianz Stadium could draw a midweek crowd upwards of 18,000 if Football Federation Australia (FFA) priced tickets more reasonably than last year, when a price hike was blamed for the paltry 15,098 that attended AAMI Park.Sydney people love a big event, and Im expecting a good crowd if the final is at Allianz, Pignata told AAP.We havent had a home game the whole FFA Cup this season as welll. Adidas Superstar Mesh Wit/Marine/Rood. Melbourne had the final last year and Adelaide has also had it, so I think its Sydneys turn now.Our fans deserve a final.Whatever arguments the respective clubs put forward, its all a numbers game for FFA.FFA will take into consideration a wide range of factors, including a venue that will allow the highest number of football fans to attend the match live and maximise the viewership and entertainment for Fox Sports, FFA chief executive David Gallop said in a statement.Both City and Victory will therefore be eager to attract large numbers on Tuesday in arguably the biggest game of the tournaments three-year history.Club officials are tipping a crowd between 15,000 and 20,000, which would likely break the FFA Cup record of 16,142 set atHindmarsh Stadium where Adelaide defeated Perth in the 2014 final.Sydney captain Alex Brosque said hed be happiest if FFA picked names out of a hat.It would probably be the fairest, Brosque told AAP.But obviously wed love to have a grand final in Sydney, which hasnt happened for a very long time.
