Boise State offense focused on improving struggling run game

BOISE — The Boise State football team spent much of last week’s bye focused on trying to improve one of the worst rushing offenses in the country.

Boise State ranks No. 129 of 130 teams at 2.42 yards per carry and No. 126 with just 84.29 rushing yards per game. The Broncos have rushed for 590 yards through seven games, which ranks No. 127.

The result is a 3-4 record for the Broncos and an overall offense that ranks No. 92 in total yards and No. 61 in scoring.

“I think it starts with the run game obviously,” offensive coordinator Tim Plough said. “That’s been a story all year and rightfully so. We’re trying to create some consistency there.”
