Name the Score contest for Boise State-Miami with Murphy game prediction

By Brian Murphy

It's back!

The Chicago Connection "Name the Score" contest is back for its fourth season here at Murph's Turf. Many thanks to Chicago Connection for providing the prize (a gift certificate for a free pizza) each week.

The rules are pretty much the same as they have been, but for any newcomers here they are:

Boise State hosts Miami (Ohio) on Saturday (2 p.m., NBC Sports) and here is your chance to predict the score and win a prize.

Place your guess with a winner and both teams' score in the comments down below and we will pick one winner. (Please limit one guess per commenter.)

The closest to the actual score of the game wins.

You can listen to my audio prediction here. It is sponsored this season by Rockitecture.

All entries must be received by 1 p.m. MT on Saturday.

When you register to make comments at, you put in an e-mail address. I will contact the winner through that e-mail address.

If it comes down to tiebreakers, closest to Boise State's actual score, closest without going over and then first received will be the tie-breaking order.

BSU 41 Miami OH 20


BSU 47 Miami (Ohio) 13

Just a hunch that this game might not be close. It's good to have the Broncos back on the blue turf. I'm hoping for blue uniforms even though I'll be watching on TV.

Go Broncos!

Go Big Blue!!

BSU - 38
Miami OH - 9

BSU 35 Miami OH 14

And hopefully no injuries for either team...Sunny...

28 7 Broncos

Good Bronco D keeps the Miami- Not Hurricanes (what's their mascot again) at bay!

BSU 45, Miami 13


BSU 24 Miami Ohio - 14

Go Big Blue!

BSU 35 Miami 10

We win on The Blue.

BSU 36 Miami 13

Since Sunny took my scores :), I will bracket! See you on the Blue!

Broncos win at home

Boise State 41

Southwick settles in, the defense looks better and the Broncos get in the win column.

Let the new guys play

When are the Broncos going to give James (#22) a Chance?

Go Broncos!

Gut punch from the MAC

Miami of Ohio 24
Boise State 20

I'm not a Southwick believer and I don't have confidence in Robert Prince as Offensive Coordinator. Miami of Ohio pulls a stunner and beats an offensively challenged Bronco squad. I hope I'm wrong.

because we played one of the

because we played one of the best d's in the nation, u dont believe. get the F U C K out of here


Dude get off these threads, you are a disgrace. Shouldn't you be playing xbox with you online buddies or something?

Sorry for the flag--it was intended for aarongbauer

Thank goodness all BSU fans are not like aarongbauer!!!

aa rongbauger

BSU is a mid-level program in a marshmallow conference playing a sub-par DIV II team; so don’t get all worked up. An upset could very well happen, just ask Arkansas.
The truth will set you free, but wait you’re a BSU homer; so you really don’t have a clue about anything.

Another classy BSU fan.


Miami of Ohio 34

Bullies 13.

Boise st. 49- Miami (OH)

Boise st. 49- Miami (OH) 13
Joe does way better in this game i think we torch their secondary and D.J. goes for 125.
Ukwuachu and Lawrence with our rotating D- tackles will terrorize Dysert all game. 2 Pics with one for TD!



Φ BSU 27, Miami 21

LSU 67, Idaho 0

Doubling down I see


Φ Line is 42.5

That only holds if LSU trots out its scout team. Idaho bus starts before end of Q1.

Oddsmakers are currently calling it BSU 37-16, which makes Blblu below look pretty good.

I didn't know

Liberty Southern University had a football team!?

My free pizza

The boys will be dishing it out. Two defensive touchdowns lead to a big win and trigger our climb to a BCS bowl!


BSU 37, Miami 17

Over 200 yards rushing by the Broncos

Pizza, Pizza

Offense has to play better.

BSU 34

Miami won't give up, but...

BSU rules supreme in a 33 - 26 victory

BSU 52 Miami(OH) 13

Finally some football on the Blue!!!

BSU 31 - 13

Broncos get it done.

BSU 34 - Miami 17

The score is actually closer than the game as Miami gets a garbage time touchdown late in the game after BSU has pulled their starters. BSU tries to stay a little conservative still with BYU coming to town next Thursday and works hard on their running game and gets some play action down field.

BSU 40


55-10 BSU!

our road to 11-1 and a BCS bowl starts here!
