What to Know
The Northridge Matadors will face off against the Boise State Broncos on the road at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday at ExtraMile Arena. Boise State should still be feeling good after a victory, while the Matadors will be looking to right the ship.
It looks like Northridge got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. They took a hard 82-66 fall against the Central Michigan Chippewas last week.
Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the game between Boise State and the Utah Valley Wolverines this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as Boise State wrapped it up with an 87-69 win at home. Boise State got their win on the backs of several key players, and it was guard Chibuzo Agbo out in front picking up 20 points.
The Matadors are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 3-0 against the spread when expected to lose.
Northridge suffered a grim 74-48 defeat to the Broncos when the two teams previously met in December of last year. Can Northridge avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
