Boise State running back Robert Mahone did some reflecting during the bye week and determined somewhere along the way this season he started dancing rather than running aggressively.

Mahone is taking the burden of the Bronco running game on his back alone but he shouldn't. The constant shuffle in the offensive line because of injuries most certainly caused Mahone to do some dancing when the holes just weren't there.

At full strength the Boise State offensive line is one of the best in the country but they haven't been able to get into a rhythm because of the injuries.

Saturday in Las Vegas the Boise State offensive line is hoping to be back at full strength with Ezra Cleveland and John Ojukwu back in action and with a focus on running the ball

The BSU offensive line shuffle is also part of the reason quarterback Hank Bachmeier has felt so much pressure. Teams have been stunting and twisting to get to the true freshman and the o-line and running backs have had trouble picking up all the rushers.

Boise State is favored by 22 points against UNLV.

Mahone knows the Broncos are a huge favorite but tells 630 The Fan that UNLV has some pretty good players on defense and says the Broncos need to be focused to take care of business because the Rebels will bring it.

Kickoff Saturday is 8:30pm Boise time.
