Tostitos Fiesta Bowl is a defensive battle

By Graham Watson

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Tostitos Fiesta Bowl has turned out to be quite the defensive contest.

Boise State has 218 yards of total offense through three quarter and TCU has 203. TCU’s season-low in total offense this season is 388 and Boise State’s is 361 in the opener against Oregon.

Boise State actually has not been tied in the second half this season and has never trailed.

Seems like one of those games where the team with the ball last wins.
