The Broncos will also have star tailback Ashton Jeanty return, which will be a jolt to Boise’s offense as he’s the leading returning rusher in the Mountain West. Jeanty has 921 yards and averages 5.9 yards per carry this year, but he hasn’t played since a win against Wyoming on Oct. 28.
Taylen Green will start at quarterback for Boise State, a role he’d held for a majority of the season. Green has completed 54-percent of his passes this year and has six touchdowns and six interceptions.
Danielson takes over a 5-5 team that needs a win in the final two weeks to both be bowl eligible and avoid the program’s first losing season since 1997. Houston Nutt was the head coach at the time.
This marks Danielson’s second stint as Boise’s interim coach, as he served in the role after Bryan Harsin left for Auburn. He did not coach any games in that stint.
