Boise State will run past Baylor

While Boise State saw its New Year's Six hopes fade, the Broncos didn't collapse nearly as badly as Baylor, which lost its final six games. Adam Rittenberg picks the Broncos to win behind RB Jeremy Nichols. Bowl predictions

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Baylor's lead-up to the Motel 6 Cactus Bowl, Dec. 27 against Boise State, looks set to rate as one of the strangest in postseason history. Interim coach Jim Grobe is on his way out.

As for the players, it's safe to wonder about their motivation level after six straight losses.
