WELCOME TO BRONCO NATION


2009 Season Outlook

2009 Boise State Football The Boise State football team is back in familiar territory, starting the 2009 season in defense of the Western Athletic Conference championship. The Broncos rolled through 12 consecutive regular season victories in 2008, earning their sixth conference title in seven years along the way. Had it not been for a last minute 17-16 loss to TCU in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, Boise State would have completed its second perfect season in three years. The Broncos enter 2009 poised to repeat as WAC Champions. They are led once again by Head Coach Chris Petersen, who is in search of his third conference title since taking over the program in 2006. In three seasons at the helm Petersen has compiled a 35-4 overall record, including a 23-1 record against WAC opponents. Petersen will look to 14 returning starters from the 2008 team to help guide a young but experienced group of players. The Broncos return six offensive starters, six defensive starters and two

starters on special teams. Of those 14 returners, there is only one senior, while seven are underclassmen. Offensively, Boise State will lean on a quarterback who is coming off the most prolific freshman campaign in school history. The Broncos also return depth on the offensive line and in the backfield, which will help lessen the work load on a wide receiving corps that boasts a lot of new faces. On defense Boise State will lean on its battletested secondary to help deal with the loss of five starters from the defensive line and linebacker corps. The returning secondary recorded 17 interceptions in 2008, while anchoring the second-best pass efficiency defense (94.43) in the country. Boise State also returns all of its talent on special teams in 2009. The Broncos are coming off an outstanding 2008 season in the punt game, in which they ranked fourth nationally in net punting (39.6 yards). Boise State also returned three punts for touchdowns in 2008.

OFFENSE Quarterback: After compiling one of the strongest seasons of any quarterback in school history, sophomore Kellen Moore (6-0, 184) enters his second season in charge of the Boise State offense. After becoming the first freshman quarterback in school history to start a season opener, Moore was named 2008 WAC Freshman of the Year and Second-Team All-WAC. He started all 13 games in his first season, in which he completed 69.4 percent of his passes (281-of-405) with 25 touchdown throws and only 10 interceptions. Moore ended the season with the 12th-best pass efficiency rating in the country (157.12). Moore’s backup is expected to be junior Michael Coughlin (6-5, 220), who has seen limited action in his first two seasons at Boise State. Coughlin played in six games last year. He completed 3-of-5 passes with one touchdown and no interceptions. Boise State has used Coughlin as a running quarterback, on occasion, adding some versatility to the offensive attack.

6

Tailback: For the first time in three years Boise State will enter the season without a definitive starter at running back. The Broncos will look to juniors Jeremy Avery (5-9, 171) and D.J. Harper (5-9, 192) to carry the bulk of the load, however, as they produced 49.7 percent of the team’s rushing output in 2008. Avery was Boise State’s second-leading rusher last season, having carried the football 111 times for 614 yards. He played in all 13 games, averaged 5.5 yards per carry and scored four touchdowns on the season. Avery made history in Boise State’s win at Idaho, breaking the school record for single-game yards per carry (14.2 ypc). He has also proved to be a receiving threat for the Broncos, catching 16 passes last season for 226 yards. Harper finished his sophomore season as the third-leading rusher for Boise State seeing action in all 13 games. He recorded 265 rushing yards on 55 carries and caught four passes for 37 yards. Harper also scored four touchdowns in 2008.


2009 Boise State Football The Broncos will also look to freshman Matt Kaiserman (6-0, 194) and junior Jarvis Hodge (59, 202) to contribute this season. Hodge recorded 12 carries for 46 yards in eight games last year. Kaiserman redshirted for the Broncos in 2008.

freshman, while leading the Broncos in yards per catch (14.5). Sophomore Tyler Shoemaker (6-1, 214) enters the season with the third-most experience of the Boise State receivers. He caught seven passes for 110 yards, averaging 15.7 yards per catch as a freshman. He also caught two touchdown passes on the season. Shoemaker’s biggest game of the season came against Idaho State when he scored touchdowns on 56- and 17-yard receptions. Boise State will look for depth at the receiver position from redshirt freshmen Mitch Burroughs (5-9, 194) and Chris Potter (5-11, 165). Burroughs was named Boise State’s Offensive Scout Player of the Year in 2008. Senior Michael Choate (6-0, 194) and freshman Aaron Burks (6-3, 178) should also compete for playing time.

2009 Season Outlook

Fullback: Senior Richie Brockel (6-2, 244) has become a staple of the Boise State rushing attack, having provided versatility for the Bronco offense as both a fullback and tight end through the past few seasons. Brockel scored four touchdowns and caught 10 passes for 101 yards last year. He was also a key in the Boise State run game that scored 28 rushing touchdowns in 2008. Sophomore Dan Paul (6-0, 235) will be Brockel’s backup, having seen action in 12 games last season. As a freshman Paul saw the field most often on special teams and as a blocking back. He began his freshman campaign as a linebacker, but Tight End: Boise State returns all three of its was transitioned to fullback midway through last tight ends from the 2008 season in Brockel, junior season. Tommy Gallarda (6-5, 250) and sophomore Kyle Efaw (6-4, 232). Both Gallarda and Efaw saw the Wide Receiver: The Boise State receiving field in all 13 games last year, providing offensive corps will rely on two explosive players to help lead versatility as blockers and receivers. the most inexperienced skilled position heading Gallarda finished the year with six catches into this season. The Broncos are looking to replace for 65 yards. He also scored two touchdowns on four of their top five receivers, 52.3 percent of the season. Gallarda’s longest reception of the year their receptions and 40 percent of their receiving came against Fresno State on a 16-yard touchdown touchdowns from 2008. grab. Junior Austin Pettis (6-3, 200) is Boise Efaw led the tight end group in receptions last State’s top returning receiver. He is coming off a year, catching 17 passes for 262 yards.

that averaged 288.5 passing yards and 152.3 rushing yards per game last season. Boise State also allowed the least amount of sacks in the WAC (13). On the left side of the O-line, junior Matt Slater (6-4, 289) and sophomore Garrett Pendergast (6-4, 288) should share playing time at the tackle position. Slater played in all 13 games as a sophomore, while Pendergast served in three games as a backup guard. At left guard sophomore Cory Yriarte (6-1, 284) and freshman Joe Kellogg (6-2, 301) should fight for time throughout the season.

Sophomore Thomas Byrd (5-11, 282) returns this season after starting all of last year at center for the Broncos. He will be joined on the right side of the line by juniors Kevin Sapien (6-4, 272) and Will Lawrence (6-2, 291), who will be looking for playing time at guard. Sapien played in 12 games as a sophomore. At right tackle, sophomore Nate Potter (6-6, 281) and freshman Michael Ames (6-4, 267) will compete for the starting spot. Potter started at tackle part time as a freshman, seeing action in 12 games.

DEFENSE Defensive Line: Despite losing three of four starters from last season’s defensive line, the Broncos expect a smooth transition with a group of familiar young faces stepping into significant playing time in 2009. The standards have been set high, however, as the Broncos are coming off a dominating defensive performance in 2008. The Bronco front line will be led by junior defensive end Ryan Winterswyk (6-4, 260). He was named First-Team All-WAC in 2008, as well as Boise State’s co-Most Valuable Defensive Player. As a sophomore Winterswyk recorded 40 tackles with 11.5 tackles for loss. He also recorded 4.5 sacks, six pass breakups and forced two fumbles. Sophomore Shea McCellin (6-3, 262) will likely compete for playing time with Winterswyk after seeing time in 10 games as a freshman. McClellin has 14 tackles and three forced fumbles on the season before suffering an injury against Idaho. At the other defensive end position, sophomores Jarrell Root (6-3, 243) and Byron Hout (6-1, 241) are expected to fight for the starting spot. Root recorded nine tackles and one pass breakup last season before suffering a season-ending injury

against Utah State. Hout saw more playing time as the season progressed last year, playing in 10 games. He finished the year with 27 tackles and four sacks. He also had his first career interception in the Poinsettia Bowl, which he returned 62 yards. Sophomores Billy Winn (6-4, 279) and Chase Baker (6-1, 293) enter the season as the front runners to start at both defensive tackle positions after playing significant minutes in 2008. Winn played in all 13 games as a freshman and recorded 26 tackles with 5.5 tackles for loss. Baker finished his freshman campaign with six tackles, one pass breakup and one fumble recovery in 10 games. Adding depth at the defensive tackle position will be sophomore J.P. Nisby (6-1, 302) and freshman Michael Atkinson (6-0, 324). Nisby recorded eight tackles in seven games last season. Atkinson was a redshirt last year for the Broncos. He was named Defensive Scout Player of the Year. Linebackers: The Bronco linebacker corps will also call upon a young bunch of players to fill the void left by the loss of two starters from 2008. Sophomore MIKE linebacker Hunter White (5-11, 215) put himself in contention for a starting spot


2009 Boise State Football after a strong showing this past spring. White played in 12 games as a backup last year. He finished the season with 25 tackles. Junior Derrell Acrey (6-1, 233) will add depth at the MIKE position, as he was the team’s fifthleading tackler (59) last year. He also recorded one sack, one pass breakup and forced one fumble. Freshman Tommy Smith (6-1, 213) is also expected to compete for playing time at the MIKE position. Sophomore Aaron Tevis (6-3, 223) finished the spring as the favorite to start at WILL linebacker for Boise State after a solid freshman season for the Broncos. Tevis recorded 27 tackles and three pass breakups in 2008. In Boise State’s season opener against Idaho State he showed a glimpse of the future with a performance that included eight tackles, two sacks, one recovered fumble and one pass breakup. Freshman J.C. Percy (6-0, 211) and junior Daron Mackey (6-0, 227) are expected to round out the group of WILL linebackers. Both Percy and Mackey were redshirts last season for the Broncos.

2009 Season Outlook

Secondary: The Boise State secondary is expected to be one of the team’s biggest strengths this season with a group that returns four out of five starters from a year ago. The returning group is full of athletic playmakers, which grabbed 17 of Boise State’s 22 interceptions in 2008. Boise State returns its top two cornerbacks from last season, which includes senior standout Kyle Wilson (5-10, 187), who was named first-team All-WAC as a junior after recording 35 tackles, 26 of which were unassisted. Wilson led the Broncos with five interceptions and 10 pass breakups. He tied for 18th in the nation with 15 passes defended. He also ranked 28th nationally (No. 2 WAC) in interceptions. Boise State also returns junior Brandyn Thompson (5-10, 178) at cornerback, who recorded

54 tackles in 2008. Thompson grabbed four interceptions on the season, three of which came against Hawai’i. He ranks second in school history for most interceptions in a single game. Sophomore Jamar Taylor (6-0, 191) and senior Garcia Day (6-1, 199) are also expected to give valuable depth at cornerback. Taylor played in all 13 games for the Broncos last season, recording 24 tackles, one interception and one pass breakup. Day recorded three tackles in 2008, seeing playing time primarily on special teams. The Bronco secondary will also rely on the return of two starting safeties to provide stability on the defensive side of the ball. Junior Jeron Johnson (5-11, 190) led the Broncos last season with 98 tackles. He also recorded three fumble recoveries, three interceptions, seven pass breakups and 4.5 tackles for loss en route to being named SecondTeam All-WAC. Sophomore George Iloka (6-3, 210) also played in all 13 games in 2008. He finished the year fourth on the team in tackles (63) and tied for second in interceptions (4). Iloka also recorded six pass breakups on the year. Rounding out the Bronco secondary will be junior Winston Venable (6-0, 206) and sophomore Doug Martin (5-10, 204). Venable joins the Broncos as a transfer from Glendale Community College. Martin is transitioning from running back this year. He saw most of his time on special times last season, but did carry the football 24 times for 107 yards as a freshman. Boise State is also expecting sophomores Cedric Febis (6-3, 195) and Travis Stanaway (5-11, 183) to provide depth at the safety position. Febis played in seven games last season, registering four tackles. Stanaway recorded 13 tackles and a pass breakup, playing in 12 games primarily on special teams.

2009 Season Outlook

2009 Boise State Football SPECIAL TEAMS Kickers: Junior Kyle Brotzman (5-10, 191) returns for his third consecutive season as Boise State’s starting place kicker. The Broncos voted Brotzman co-Special Teams Player of the Year in 2008 after making all 50 of his point-after attempts and 17-of-26 field goal tries. Brotzman has never missed a PAT during his collegiate career (116). He has also made 75 percent of his career field goal attempts. Brotzman will be backed up by freshman Jimmy Pavel (5-9, 214), who was aredshirt last season for the Broncos. Pavel is expected to provide some kickoff relief for Brotzman this year. Punters: Brotzman is also expected to be called upon to handle the bulk of the punting duties once again after averaging 45.3 yards per punt in 2008. He recorded 1,673 yards on 37 punts last season. Brotzman also successfully downed 14 punts inside the opposing team’s 20-yard line. His career long is 75 yards. Junior Brad Elkin (6-2, 202) will be competing for playing time with Brotzman. He punted 10 times in four games for the Broncos last season. Elkin averaged 40.2 yards per punt as a sophomore.

He also ranked 12th in the country for punt return average. Wilson was named second-team All-WAC as a specialist. The Broncos are also expecting to give some punt return duties to Mitch Burroughs and Chris Potter.

T

he awards and accolades keep accumulating for Boise State head football coach Chris Petersen. After guiding the 2008 Broncos to a 12-1 overall record, a league championship and an appearance in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, Petersen was named the Western Athletic Conference Coach of the Year by a vote of his peers in early December. In addition, it was announced in December that Petersen had been named a 2008 finalist for the Paul “Bear” Bryant Coach of the Year honor. Petersen is one of eight head coaches from the Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly I-A) who were finalists for the award, which is considered college football’s top coaching honor. Petersen was named the 2006 winner of the Bryant award after leading the Broncos to an undefeated season of 13-0 and their now-famous 43-42 overtime victory over the University of Oklahoma in the 2007 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. In addition to the Bryant Award, Petersen was also named a finalist for the Liberty Mutual and Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year awards in 2008. Petersen, who has a career record of 35-4 for a .875 winning percentage, guided last year’s Boise State team to its third undefeated regular season in five years, its sixth WAC championship in seven seasons, and finished the season with a No. 11 ranking by the Associated Press. The Broncos also fell just two points short of completing their second undefeated season in three years, with a 16-17 loss to No. 11 TCU in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.

In his three seasons at Boise State, “Coach Pete” has clearly established himself as one of the top young football coaches in the country, leading the Broncos to a bowl game and a consistent presence in the national rankings each of those years. Under Petersen, Boise State has compiled an impressive 23-1 record in the WAC with a league championship in 2006 and 2008 and a runner-up finish in ’07. Considered one of the most innovative offensive minds in the college coaching ranks, Petersen has guided an offense that continues to be among the nation’s best. At the end of the 2008 regular season, Boise State ranked 11th in passing efficiency, tied for 12th in scoring offense (37.62 points per game), 13th in passing offense (288.54 yards per game) and 18th in total offense (440.85 ypg) among the nation’s 119 Football Bowl Subdivision teams. The ’08 Bronco defense fared even better in the national rankings. Boise State was ranked second in pass defense efficiency, third in scoring defense (12.62 points per game), 20th in total defense (308.15 yards per game), 22nd in rushing defense (118.00 yards per game) and 34th in pass defense (190.15 ypg).


2009 Boise State Football defense. Players who earned second-team recognition were Moore, wide receiver Austin Pettis, running back Ian Johnson, defensive end Mike T. Williams, safety Jeron Johnson and Wilson (as a punt returner). In 2008 Boise State tied for the highest-scoring offense in the WAC, averaging 37.6 points per game. The Broncos were also second in the league in passing (288.5 yards per game) and total offense (440.80 ypg). On defense the Broncos led the league in several categories: fewest points allowed per game (12.6), fewest yards allowed per game (308.2), best pass defense efficiency and lowest opponents’ fourth-down conversion rate (27.8 percent). The Broncos also led the WAC in punting (39.6 net yards per kick). Given Petersen’s ability to develop quarterbacks, the future bodes well for Moore. As BSU’s offensive coordinator and then as its head coach, Coach Pete was instrumental in the development of quarterbacks Ryan Dinwiddie and Jared Zabransky, who are among the most successful collegiate signal callers in recent years. Dinwiddie, who guided the Bronco offense from 2001-03, finished as the NCAA career passing efficiency leader with a rating of 168.19. Dinwiddie had a career-best 188.18 rating in 2002 that would have set an NCAA single-season record if he played in one more game. (He missed four complete games and parts of two other contests because of a leg injury.) He also had a 164.69 rating in 2001 and a 163.72 rating in 2003, both good enough for fourth in the country. With Petersen as his quarterback coach, as well as the team’s offensive coordinator, Dinwiddie led the Broncos to a 28-6 record as a starter. After Dinwiddie left, Petersen helped groom Zabransky into one of the nation’s most successful quarterbacks from 2004-06. Zabransky led Boise State to three straight league titles, two undefeated regular seasons, and a 32-5 record in his three years as a starter, including a 23-1 record in WAC games. Offensive tackle Ryan Clady also excelled under Petersen. A consensus All-American in 2007, Clady decided to skip his senior year of college and make himself eligible for the 2008 NFL draft. In April he became the first Bronco ever selected in the first round, going to Denver as the 12th overall selection. In 2006, Petersen’s first season as head coach, Clady earned second-team All-America recognition from SI.com while Ian Johnson (first-team SI.com and CBS Sportline; second-team Sporting News; and third-team Associated Press) and linebacker Korey Hall (second-team Sporting News) also earned All-America honors that year. In his five seasons as offensive coordinator, Petersen had two players earn All-America honors – running back Brock Forsey in 2002 and offensive tackle Daryn Colledge in 2004. He also helped 12 Broncos earn first-team All-WAC honors, while two (Dinwiddie in 2003 and Forsey in 2002) were named WAC Offensive Player of the Year.

Head Coach - Chris Petersen

The unbeaten Broncos finished their ’08 regular season ranked ninth in the Associated Press Top 25 poll, the USA Today coaches’ poll and the Bowl Championship Series rankings. Boise State’s No. 5 ranking at the end of the 2006 season was the highest in school history. As the ninth head coach in the 40-year history of Boise State’s football participation at the four-year level, Petersen led the ’06 Broncos to their first undefeated season since 1958 (when the school was still a junior college), their first-ever BCS bowl berth, and their fifth straight WAC title. Honors and national rankings are nothing new to Petersen. In the history of college football, only one coach since 1900 won 13 games in his first season at the helm of an FBS team. That coach was Petersen in 2006. In addition to winning the Bryant award that year, Petersen was a finalist for the ’06 Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year award, a semifinalist for the George Munger Coach of the Year award, and was named the Region 4 Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association. As Boise State’s offensive coordinator from 20012005, he was twice (2002 and 2004) a finalist for the Broyles Award, which honors the nation’s top assistant football coach. During Petersen’s stint as offensive coordinator, Boise State featured one of the most potent offenses in the country, averaging 41.3 points per game while also finishing as the nation’s top scoring team twice (2002 and 2003). The Broncos also finished second (2004), eighth (2005) and 18th (2001) in the nation in scoring while Petersen was running the Broncos’ offense. During Petersen’s five seasons as offensive coordinator, BSU finished in the top 15 in total offense four times, including three top10 finishes – first in 2002, fourth in 2004, and seventh in 2003. The Broncos also had four top 20 finishes in passing during that time, including a high ranking of fifth in 2003. BSU also ranked in the top 25 in the country in rushing in three of the last four seasons that Petersen coached the offense, including 14th in 2004 and 15th in 2005. Several players have excelled individually under Petersen in his three years as head coach; the most recent example is freshman quarterback Kellen Moore in 2008. Moore, who was named 2008 WAC Freshman of the Year, finished the season ranked 12th in the nation in passing efficiency and 24th in total offense. In the WAC he was second in passing (268.20 yards per game) and total offense (265.85 ypg). In Petersen’s three years as head coach, 17 of his players were named first-team All-WAC and 15 others were selected second-team all-conference. In 2008 the Broncos placed lineman Andrew Woodruff and wide receiver Jeremy Childs on WAC first-team offense and defensive end Ryan Winterswyk, cornerback Kyle Wilson and safety/linebacker Ellis Powers on the first-team

Petersen came to Boise State as Dan Hawkins’ offensive coordinator following the 2000 season from the University of Oregon, where he was the wide receivers coach. He joined the Oregon staff in 1995 and immediately helped contribute to a passing attack that ranked among the nation’s elite each of the six seasons he was an assistant. Twice during Petersen’s tenure at Oregon, the Duck offense broke the school record for singleseason passing yards, and three times in the same time period the team broke the singleseason school record for most touchdowns. Prior to working at Oregon, Petersen served as the quarterbacks coach at Portland State from 1993-1994, helping the Vikings advance to the NCAA Division II playoffs both seasons. In 1992 Petersen was the quarterbacks coach at the University of Pittsburgh. That season the Panthers established a school record for passing yards and ranked eighth nationally in total offense and passing. In addition, he contributed to the development of first-team All-Big East Conference quarterback Alex Van Pelt, who eclipsed the school’s passing yardage totals previously held by Dan Marino. Petersen’s success as a coach can be linked to his record-setting career as a quarterback at the University of California, Davis. As a senior with the Aggies, he was named the Northern California Athletic Conference Player of the Year and was the top-rated Division II quarterback in the nation. Petersen received second-team Kodak Division II All-America honors and still holds the Division II record for career pass completions at 69.6 percent. Petersen was inducted into the UC Davis Athletic Hall of Fame in 1993. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in psychology from UC Davis in 1988, Petersen started his coaching career at his alma mater, serving as UC Davis’ head freshman coach in 1987-88 and the receivers coach from 1989-91. Petersen holds a master’s degree in educational psychology from UC Davis. He and his wife, Barbara, are the parents of two sons, Jack (13) and Sam (10).

339.6 yards per game while leading the Big Sky Conference in both 1996 and 1998. Under Pease’s tutelage as offensive coordinator, Ah Yat threw a Big Sky-record 42 touchdown passes in 1996. Dickenson is first in Big Sky history in total offense and Ah Yat is 12th. Ah Yat led all of I-AA in 1996 with an average of 340.36 yards of total offense per game. Dickenson was the 1995 Walter Payton Award winner and an Associated Press All-American in 1993, 1994 and 1995. Ah Yat was a Walter Payton Award finalist and a I-AA All-American in 1996 and 1998. Dickenson and Ah Yat combined to win five Big Sky MVP awards. Pease graduated from Mountain Home (Idaho) High School in 1983. He played quarterback at Walla Walla Community College from 1983-1984 and then at Montana from 1985-1986. Pease ranks ninth at Montana in both single-season and career passing. He graduated from Montana in 1990 with a degree in health and human performance with an emphasis in social science. He and his wife, Paula, have one daughter, Halle (14), and one son, Karsten (12).

Coaching Staff

at Boise State and his fourth as wide receivers coach. Before coming to Boise State, he spent 15 seasons coaching at four different schools in three different conferences, the last 10 as his team’s offensive coordinator. In 2008 Pease put together another outstanding Bronco receiving corps that was a huge key to the success of freshman quarterback Kellen Moore. Two Boise State receivers earned allconference honors last year, as Jeremy Childs was named first-team All-Western Athletic Conference for the second consecutive season and Austin Pettis was named second-team All-WAC. Childs, who left Boise State after his junior season to pursue a career in the National Football League, ranks second all-time in career receptions (168) at Boise State. Under Coach Pease, Childs recorded the most single season receptions (82) in school history in 2007, as well as the third most receptions in a season (72) in 2008. Before joining the Bronco coaching staff in 2006, Pease spent the previous three seasons as the offensive coordinator at Baylor. In his last season at Baylor, Pease helped the Bears post a 5-6 record, their best finish since 1995. From 2001-2002 Pease served as offensive coordinator at Kentucky, where he helped turn the Wildcats into one of the top scoring offenses in the country. After posting a 2-9 season in Pease’s first year, Kentucky finished 7-5 in 2002, which matched its best record since 1984, and was ranked 23rd nationally in scoring offense. Pease coached future NFL players Artose Pinner (Detroit Lions) and Jared Lorenzen (New York Giants) during his two seasons at Kentucky. Pinner finished 13th in the nation in rushing in 2002 and Lorenzen was 23rd in pass efficiency that season while Derek Abney was 10th in all-purpose rushing in 2002 and 12th in 2001. Before moving to the Division I level as a coordinator, Pease spent 10 seasons at Division I-AA schools Montana and Northern Arizona, five of those as a coordinator. Pease served as assistant head coach, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at NAU from 1999-2000. He was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Montana, his alma mater, from 1996-1998 and was an offensive assistant coach for the Grizzlies from 1991-1995. Pease helped the Grizzlies establish themselves as one of the premier I-AA programs in the mid-’90s when they won the I-AA national championship in 1995, finished second in 1996, and advanced to the semifinals in 1994. During Pease’s tenure at Montana, the Grizzlies finished with 10 or more wins four times in eight years. And while he was offensive coordinator, the team compiled records of 14-1 (1996), 8-4 (1997) and 8-4 (1998).

ryan Harsin is in his ninth season as a member of the Bronco football staff and his fourth as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. The 32-year-old Harsin is one of the top young assistant coaches in the country and one of the youngest offensive coordinators in Division I football. After serving as tight ends coach from 2002-05, Harsin was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2006 when Chris Petersen was named head coach. He was a graduate assistant with the Broncos in 2001. Harsin faced one of the biggest hurdles of his young career in 2008, as the Bronco offense was taken over by freshman quarterback Kellen Moore. After becoming the first freshman quarterback in Boise State history to start a season opener, Moore would compile one of the most outstanding seasons by any Bronco quarterback ever. With Harsin’s tutelage, he finished the year with a 69.4 completion percentage (281-405), 25 touchdown passes and just 10 interceptions. Moore finished 2008 ranked No. 12 nationally in pass efficiency (157.12). His play earned him second-team All-Western Athletic Conference honors. He was also named WAC Freshman of the Year. As a group, the Bronco offense averaged 288.5 passing yards and 152.3 rushing yards per game. The Bronco’s also led the WAC with the fewest sacks allowed on the season (13). Harsin helped one of Boise State’s biggest offensive weapons make history, as Ian Johnson broke the WAC and school record for career touchdowns (58). In three seasons as Harsin’s starting tailback, Johnson recorded the second most career rushing yards (4,183) in school history. Harsin coached five different players to all-conference honors in 2008, including Childs and offensive lineman Andrew Woodruff, who were both named first-team All-WAC. They were joined by Moore, Pettis and Johnson, who were voted second-team All-WAC. In 2007, Boise State finished fourth in the nation in scoring and sixth nationally in passing efficiency. The Broncos were also second in the WAC in scoring and passing efficiency and third in rushing, total offense and passing. Following the 2007 season, offensive tackle Ryan Clady became the first player in Boise State history to be taken in the first round of the NFL draft when he was selected No. 12 overall by the Denver Broncos. Clady, who decided to skip his final season at Boise State to become eligible for the draft, was named a first-team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association and Sporting News and to four second-team All-America squads. In Harsin’s first season as offensive coordinator, the 2006 Broncos went undefeated and were second in the country in scoring offense, sixth in rushing offense and passing efficiency, and 10th in total offense. Boise State also finished first in the WAC in rushing, second in scoring offense and passing efficiency, third in total offense, and fourth in passing offense. Also in 2006, running back Ian Johnson led the country in rushing touchdowns and scoring while finishing second in rushing and ninth in total offense. Johnson also set a Boise State

single-season rushing record with 1,713 yards on a school-record 277 carries. He was named to four separate All-America teams and finished eighth in the Heisman Trophy voting. Johnson, a senior last fall, was also a semifinalist for the Doak Walker Award and one of 10 “Players to Watch” for the 2006 Walter Camp Player of the Year Award. Tight ends played a vital role in a Bronco offense that led the nation in scoring twice and finished in the top 10 in scoring in each of the four years Harsin was tight ends coach. In 2005 four Bronco tight ends combined to catch 27 passes for 298 yards and three touchdowns. In 2004 Harsin helped Bronco tight ends contribute to the top-scoring offense in school history. In 2003 five tight ends combined to catch 41 passes and five touchdowns. Harsin was a member of the Bronco football team from 1995-1999, earning three varsity letters. He served as Boise State’s backup quarterback in 1999 when the team went 10-3 and won the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl. After graduating from Boise State in 2000 with a degree in business management, Harsin entered the coaching profession at Eastern Oregon, coaching running backs and receivers during the 2000 season. Harsin and his wife, Kes, have two daughters, Devyn Lynn (9) and Dayn Mykena (7), and a son, Davis (3). Harsin is a graduate of Capital High School in Boise.

Coaching Staff

ustin Wilcox, 32, is in his fourth season as defensive coordinator at Boise State and his sixth season overall after working as a graduate assistant for the Broncos from 2001-2002. During the first three seasons with Wilcox in charge of the defense, Boise State led the Western Athletic Conference in total defense and scoring defense each year. Last season the Broncos led the WAC in total defense (308.2 yards per game), pass efficiency defense (94.4 rating) and scoring defense (12.6 points per game). Nationally, the Broncos finished 2008 ranked No. 2 in pass defense, No. 3 in scoring defense and No. 20 in total defense. A big part of Boise State’s defensive success in 2008 came behind the five players who earned All-WAC honors. Defensive end Ryan Winterswyk, cornerback Kyle Wilson and linebacker Ellis Powers were all named first-team All-WAC. Wilcox also coached defensive end Mike T. Williams and safety Jeron Johnson to second-team AllWAC honors. In both 2006 and 2007 the Broncos also led the WAC in rushing defense. In 2007 the Broncos were nationally ranked in pass efficiency defense (24th), total defense and scoring defense (25th), passing defense and sacks (26th), and rushing defense (35th). Nationally in 2006, Boise State was eighth in rushing defense, 14th in total defense, 20th in scoring defense, 28th in sacks, and 30th in pass efficiency defense. Wilcox’s defense was instrumental in helping the 2006 Boise State team to a 13-0 record and its now-famous 43-42 overtime win over Oklahoma in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. In 2007, defensive end Nick Schlekeway and defensive back Marty Tadman were first-team All-WAC selections and Wilson was a second-team pick. In addition, defensive back Orlando Scandrick decided to skip his final season to become eligible for the 2008 NFL draft and was taken in the fifth round by the Dallas Cowboys. Two members of Wilcox’s 2006 squad, linebacker Korey Hall and defensive back Gerald Alexander, were selected in the 2007 NFL draft and started as rookies for the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions, respectively. Before assuming the duties as the Bronco defensive coordinator, Wilcox spent three seasons at California as linebackers coach. While coaching at Cal from 2003-2005, Wilcox helped the Golden Bears to three straight bowl games and 26-12 record. The Bears played in the Insight Bowl in 2003, the Holiday Bowl in 2004, and the Las Vegas Bowl in 2005. Wilcox was credited with turning his linebackers into a unit that epitomized the Cal defense’s swarm-tothe-ball philosophy. In 2005 he coached a second-team All-Pac-10 player and two first-team freshman All-America picks. In his two seasons as a graduate assistant at Boise State, Wilcox worked with the Broncos’ outside linebackers. He helped Boise State to an upset victory over No. 8 Fresno State in 2001 and a 12-1 record and a No. 15 national ranking in 2002.

Coaching Staff

eff Choate is in his fourth season as special teams coach, and his first season as the linebackers coach at Boise State, after working as the running backs coach for the previous three years. In his three seasons as the running backs coach, Choate helped Ian Johnson rush to one of the most prolific careers in school history. Johnson finished 2008 as the all-time leader in career rushing touchdowns (58) for both Boise State and the Western Athletic Conference. Johnson also finished with the second-most career rushing yards (4,183) in school history. In 2008 Choate coached one of the top special teams units in the country, which was anchored by punt return specialist Kyle Wilson. Wilson finished the season with the most punt return touchdowns (3) in the country, which earned him second-team AllWAC honors as a specialist. He also ranked 12th nationally in punt return average (14.2 yards per return). On the other side of the special teams unit Choate has enjoyed the services of one Kyle Brotzman, who has provided solid punting and kicking for the Broncos over the past two seasons. Brotzman has made 116 consecutive point after attempts and 75 percent of his career field goal tries. In 2008 he averaged 45.3 yards per punt, while downing 14 punts inside the opposition’s 20-yard line. Phil Steele’s College Football ranked Boise State’s special teams No. 2 in the country last year behind Cincinnati. In 2007 two of Choate’s players received All-WAC honors with Johnson earning first-team honors for the second straight year and Brotzman receiving second-team recognition. Johnson rushed for 1,087 yards and 16 touchdowns while Brotzman led the Broncos in scoring, hitting all 66 of his PATs and 16-of-18 field goals. In 2006 Johnson led the country in rushing touchdowns and scoring while finishing second in rushing and ninth in total offense. Johnson also set a Boise State single-season rushing record that year with 1,713 yards on a school-record 277 carries. In two seasons as Boise State’s special teams coordinator, Choate has seen three of his players earn All-WAC recognition. In addition to Wilson earning second-team All-WAC honors last year, place kicker Anthony Montgomery was a first-team All-WAC pick and punter Kyle Stringer was a second-team selection in 2006. As a team, the Broncos improved significantly from 2006 to 2008 in net punting, punt returns and kickoff returns. In 2008 the Broncos led the WAC in net punting with a 39.57 average while improving from 33rd to fourth nationally. The team also improved from 65th to 20th in 2008 in punt returns. Choate joined the Bronco program after one season as the Eastern Illinois special teams coach. The Panthers finished the 2005 season first in the Ohio Valley Conference. Before going to EIU, Choate spent the previous two years as the special teams coach at Utah State. In 2004 the Aggies were one of just six NCAA Division I teams to have three special team units nationally ranked among the top 30. USU led the country in punt returns, was ranked 24th in kickoff returns, and was 27th in net punting. Choate was a graduate assistant at Utah State and

WELCOME TO BRONCO NATION


2008 Season Review

2009 Boise State Football Game No. 1 Boise State 49, Idaho State 7 August 30 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Freshman Kellen Moore threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns, and Tyler Shoemaker caught two passes for two touchdowns as Boise State defeated Idaho State 49-7. Becoming the first freshman to start in the season opener for the Broncos, the left-handed Moore used his quick release and rifle arm to complete 14-of-19 passes and no interceptions. The two touchdown passes went for 80 and 56 yards. It was the third consecutive year Boise State opened the season at home against a team from a lower division, and for the third straight year, they routed their opponent. But it didn’t start out that way. The Broncos did not score their first touchdown until a little more than a minute was left in the first quarter. It was the first of four touchdowns in the span of 8 minutes to go up 28-0 with 7:48 left in the half. It started with an 11-play, 76-yard drive, with Moore completing four straight passes for 49 yards and capped by Richie Brockel’s 2-yard run. After a Bengals punt, Moore found Chris O’Neill for 22 yards and Julian Hawkins for another 9. Running back Ian Johnson was stopped from the 3-yard-line for no gain twice before he finding the end zone on a third try, making it 14-0, after the kick, with 12:11 left in the half. After gaining only 2 yards, the Bengals were forced to punt. When he got the ball back, Moore found wide receiver Titus Young behind the Idaho State defense for an 80-yard touchdown on the first play of the drive, pushing the lead to 21-0. Three plays later, the Bengals had to punt again. But Johnson, in on special teams, blocked it and Ellis Powers recovered to give the Broncos the ball at the Idaho State 12-yard mark. Brockel powered in from 3 yards out to make it 28-0 with 7:48 left in the half. Idaho State showed life with an 80-yard drive that included running back Ken Cornist’s 18-yard pass to Isaiah Burel at the 2-yard line. Clint Knickrehm then ran in to make it 28-7 just before the end of the half. But that was all the offense the Bengals could muster. Boise State scored twice in the third quarter, the first a 24-yard run by Young on a reverse, and the second a 56-yard pass from Moore to Shoemaker to cap a 99-yard drive, making it 42-7. Boise State’s final score came on a 17-yard pass from Bush Hamdan to Tyler Shoemaker. Score by Quarters Idaho State Boise State Scoring Summary BSU 1st, 1:14

2008 Season in Review 2009 Boise State Football Game No. 2 Boise State 20, Bowling Green State 7 September 13 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Ian Johnson rushed for 97 yards, scored two touchdowns and the Boise State defense did the rest en route to a 20-7 victory over Bowling Green. The Broncos held the Falcons scoreless until the fourth quarter, then put the game away in the final minutes by forcing another costly Falcons turnover. With Bowling Green driving deep into Broncos territory, backup quarterback Andrew Beam coughed up the ball and Boise State safety Jeron Johnson recovered it at the 25-yard line. The Broncos got off to an early start, scoring three touchdowns in the first half. Freshman quarterback Kellen Moore completed his first 11 passes, which he spread over two scoring drives. Moore finished 18-of-23 for 180 yards and scored the game’s first touchdown on a 1-yard dive in the first quarter. Boise State’s two-point conversion attempt failed. On the next possession, Moore led a 98-yard Broncos drive. The biggest play came when Moore rolled out and floated a 39-yard pass to Jeremy Childs. Five plays later, Johnson scored from a yard out, giving the Broncos a 13-0 lead with 14:03 in the half. Johnson carried the ball just 13 times, and used his biggest run of the game to set up Boise State’s final score. After taking a pitch from Moore, Johnson ran down the sidelines for 53 yards before being knocked out at the 20. Two plays later, he ran 6 yards for a score, putting the Broncos up 20-0 at halftime. Boise State had 340 total yards on offense, including 160 on the ground, while the defense had two takeaways and a pair of sacks. In the second half, Bowling Green controlled the ball, but failed until the fourth quarter to put points on the board. The Falcons dominated time of possession, keeping the ball for 34:35 compared to 25:25 for Boise State. The Falcons finally snapped the drought early in the fourth quarter, scoring with the help of some trickery on fourth down. On 4th and goal from the 4-yard line, receiver Freddy Barnes caught a pitch in the backfield then found a wide open Jimmy Scheidler in the end zone. With 7:45 left, the Falcons took over and marched into Broncos territory. But with quarterback Tyler Sheehan on the sidelines shaking off a hard hit, backup Andrew Beam scrambled up field then lost the ball on a jarring hit by Billy Winn.

Game No. 3 Boise State 37, Oregon 32 September 20 - Autzen Stadium - Eugene, Oregon EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Kellen Moore threw for 386 yards and three touchdowns in his first road start and Boise State upset No. 17 Oregon 37-32. Moore, a redshirt freshman, was composed in completing 24 of 36 passes. Vinny Perretta had three catches for 91 yards and a touchdown. It was Boise State’s first victory over a BCS member school on the road. The Broncos are 3-11 against the Pacific-10 Conference all-time, with all of their victories coming against teams from Oregon (they had defeated Oregon State twice before in Boise). The Ducks went into the game ranked fourth in the nation in rushing with an average of 323.3 yards per game. They were also ranked fourth in total offense, with an average of more than 562 yards. The Broncos managed to slow Oregon, allowing 464 yards of total offense and 227 yards on the ground. After Oregon scored to open the scoring at 6-0, Boise State halved the margin on Kyle Brotzman’s 51-yard field goal, a career-best, then took a 10-6 lead when Moore found Tommy Gallarda with a 9-yard scoring pass. Ian Johnson upped the Broncos’ lead with a 6-yard scoring run, before Moore hit Chris O’Neill with a 3-yard pass to make it 24-6 and quiet the Autzen Stadium fans. Moore was intercepted by Oregon’s Talmadge Jackson early in the second half, leading to Jeremiah Johnson’s 18-yard touchdown run and narrowing it to 24-13. The Broncos answered on the next series with Moore’s 73-yard scoring pass to Perretta. Brotzman added a pair of field goals, from 26 and 34 yards out, to make 34-13 for Boise State. Thomas gave Oregon life in the fourth quarter. First he hit Jeff Maehl with a 24-yard scoring pass, and then found Ed Dickson with a 20-yard TD pass to narrow it to 37-26. Another late comeback appeared possible for Oregon. The Ducks got down to the Boise State 7 after two consecutive pass interference penalties by the Broncos, and Thomas found Moore in the end zone to close to within 37-32 with 2:07 left in the game. But time ran out for Oregon. Score by Quarters Boise State Oregon Scoring Summary UO 1st, 2:44

2008 Season in Review 2009 Boise State Football Game No. 4 Boise State 38, Louisiana Tech 3 October 1 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore threw for two touchdowns and D.J. Harper rushed for two more to lead No. 17 Boise State to a 38-3 victory over Louisiana Tech. The Broncos (4-0, 1-0 Western Athletic Conference) got another impressive effort from its defense in beating the Bulldogs (2-2, 0-1) for the seventh straight time. Moore, a redshirt freshman, looked sharp again, finishing 20-of-28 for 325 yards before heading to the bench early in the fourth quarter. The left-hander tossed a 13-yard TD to Julian Hawkins early in the first quarter, then hit a wide-open Chris O’Neill for a 44-yard score to put the Broncos up 14-0 early in the second. The Broncos rolled up 464 yards of total offense, avoided turnovers and costly penalties and never let the Bulldogs get close in the WAC opener for both teams. Harper scored twice in the second half, both on 3-yard runs as Boise State rushed for 132 yards. Going into the game, the Broncos focused on stopping Louisiana Tech’s explosive special teams and knack for making big plays. They did just that, keeping the Bulldogs’ return game in check and allowing just two plays over 50 yards, both long passes by Taylor Bennett. For the Bulldogs, it was a night of missed opportunities. The offense moved the ball all game, crossing midfield six times in the first three quarters, but managing just three points. Credit the Bronco’s bend-but-don’t-break defense, which held the Bulldogs to 118 yards rushing, well below their season average of 163.7, and mounted a goal-line stand early in the fourth quarter when the Bulldogs sought to cut a 31-3 deficit. Bennett was just 9-of-27 passing for 202 yards and was sacked twice. The Bulldogs, losers of both road games this season, amassed 320 total yards, but was just 5-of-17 on third-down conversions. Boise State scored on its second possession when Moore found Hawkins on a crossing route in the middle of the end zone. Moore, whose interception on the opening possession ended a scoring threat, was 4-of-5 on the drive. The Broncos reached into the trick play chapter of the playbook to extend the lead early in the second quarter. From the Bulldogs 44, receiver Vinny Perretta took the snap and tossed to Moore, who found O’Neill all alone down the left sideline, putting the Broncos up 14-0. The Bulldogs’ lone score came the hard way. Starting from their own 1, Bennett led the Bulldogs to the red zone, the biggest play a 53-yard pass to R.P. Stuart. But the drive stalled, and Brad Oestreicher closed the gap to 14-3 with a 29-yard field goal. Boise State added another touchdown in the final minutes of the first half when Titus Young went 15 yards around end.

2008 Season in Review 2009 Boise State Football Game No. 5 Boise State 24, Southern Miss. 7 October 11 - M.M. Roberts Stadium - Hattiesburg, Mississippi HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Kellen Moore threw three touchdown passes and No. 15 Boise State rolled to an easy win, beating Southern Mississippi 24-7 with a scoring flurry in the second quarter. Moore hit 16-of-20 passes for 144 yards and all three touchdowns in the first half, connecting twice with Austin Pettis, for the efficient Broncos (5-0). The redshirt freshman quarterback continued to show an uncanny ability to make the right decisions despite his youth. He came into the game completing 72 percent of his passes and hit 70 percent (21-of-30) against Southern Miss (2-4), which has lost three straight games for the first time since 2004. With Moore guiding them, the Broncos look like they could be BCS busters again. It was Boise State’s 25th road win since 2003 and its 14th regular-season win in its last 15 games. The Broncos were so dominant, they hardly handed the ball off to running back Ian Johnson - though he still managed to make plays. He ran 11 times for 56 yards and made big plays that set up three scores. After a scoreless first quarter, Moore hit Jeremy Childs on a screen pass early in the second. Childs took the pass, one of seven in the first half and 10 for 82 yards in the game, down the right sideline, stiff-armed a defender at the five and outran two others for a 28-yard touchdown. On the ensuing drive, Southern Miss made a mistake that would help Boise State pull away. Austin Davis tried a quarterback sneak on fourth-and-1 at midfield with about 11 minutes left in the half. The Broncos stuffed Davis and a few plays later Johnson ripped off a 23-yard run to the Southern Miss 11. Moore then found Pettis on a 5-yard pass at the back of the end zone to make it 14-0. Boise State went up 17-0 on Kyle Brotzman’s 32-yard field goal after Southern Miss’ Cameron O’Neal fumbled the kickoff. Johnson, playing on special teams, recovered the fumble. Southern Miss got in the game on its next series on Damion Fletcher’s 17-yard touchdown run to cut the lead to 17-7. Moore wasn’t done, though. He took the ball at his own 34 and quickly drove the Broncos down the field in the hurry-up offense, starting with about three minutes to go. He found Johnson with a dump pass over the middle for 26 yards. Then he hit Childs for 18 yards before finding Pettis with a four-yard touchdown with 39 seconds left in the half.

2008 Season in Review 2009 Boise State Football Game No. 6 Boise State 27, Hawai’i 7 October 17 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore threw three touchdown passes and cornerback Brandyn Thompson had three interceptions to lead No. 15 Boise State to a 27-7 victory over Hawai’i. The Broncos (6-0, 2-0 Western Athletic Conference) intercepted Hawai’i’s Inoke Funaki five times, turning three of them into 17 second-half points that put the game away. The Broncos’ smothering defense pressured Funaki all night, sacking him five times and holding the Warriors (3-4, 2-2) to just 288 total yards. Moore finished 25-of-34 for 256 yards. The left-hander’s three touchdown passes gave him 16 on the season and 11 over the last four games. The victory was Boise State’s 17th straight at home and avenged a bitter loss to the Warriors last year that cost them the WAC title. Boise State had 367 total yards, 111 on the ground by its corps of three tailbacks. The Broncos scored first on a 31-yard field goal by Kyle Brotzman and followed that in the second quarter with a two-yard pass from Moore to Richie Brockel. The Broncos took control in the third quarter when Thompson and safety Jeron Johnson intercepted Funaki on Hawaii’s first two possessions, both times returning the ball into Boise State territory. The turnovers shifted momentum in a game that the Broncos led 10-7 at halftime and was statistically even. On Hawai’i’s opening possession in the third quarter, Thompson stepped in front of an errant throw by Funaki and returned it to the Warriors 46-yard line. The Broncos scored six plays later when Moore tossed a 12-yard pass to Julian Hawkins to make it 17-7. After the kickoff, Funaki, under pressure, overthrew his target and the pass was picked off by Johnson, who returned it to the Warriors’ 41. Moore, a redshirt freshman, wasted little time making the Warriors pay when he capped a six-play drive by throwing a 16-yard pass to Austin Pettis that put Boise State ahead 24-7. Early in the fourth quarter, Thompson again picked off Funaki at the Warriors’ 31. The Broncos’ offense sputtered, but Kyle Brotzman kicked a 43-yard field goal. Hawai’i, which has never won in Boise, scored in the second quarter after Boise State tight end Kyle Efaw coughed up the ball at the Warriors 46. Five plays later, Daniel Libre scored on a 3-yard run to make it 10-7. Score by Quarters Hawai’i Boise State

2008 Season in Review 2009 Boise State Football Game No. 7 Boise State 33, San Jose State 16 October 24 - Spartan Stadium - San Jose, California SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Kellen Moore and his Boise State teammates showed San Jose State that the 13th-ranked Broncos are still the class of the WAC. Moore threw two touchdown passes and Ian Johnson ran for two scores to help Boise State keep its bid alive for a berth in a BCS game by beating the Spartans 33-16 in a matchup of the top two teams in the Western Athletic Conference. Boise State proved to be too much for the Spartans to handle, winning for the 49th time in its last 51 conference games. Jeremy Childs blocked a punt to set up one touchdown for the Broncos and caught a TD pass, while Jeremy Avery led the Broncos rushing attack with 96 yards on 21 carries. The Broncos, who had allowed only one opponent to score more than seven points this season, shut down San Jose State’s offense for most of the game. The Spartans did manage one big play, when Brandon Rutley burst up the middle for a 60-yard run that cut Boise State’s lead to 20-16 in the third quarter. But Boise State methodically closed out the game from there with three long drives that led to field goals by Kyle Brotzman and Johnson’s second TD run. San Jose State didn’t record a first down until Kyle Reed’s 14-yard keeper with 1:18 left in the opening half. But the Spartans still managed to score twice in the half, getting a 62-yard interception return for a touchdown by Justin Cole in the first quarter and a 47-yard field goal by Jared Strubeck in the final seconds. Boise State also started slowly on offense, gaining just 56 yards in the first quarter. But Childs’ blocked punt set up Moore’s 5-yard touchdown pass to Austin Pettis in the first quarter. Moore then hit Childs on an 8-yard TD pass and Johnson ran it in from 2 yards to give the Broncos a 20-6 lead in the second quarter. They were poised to add more late in the half before Johnson fumbled at the goal line, leading to Strubeck’s field goal that made it 20-9.

2008 Season in Review 2009 Boise State Football Game No. 8 Boise State 49, New Mexico State 0 November 1 - Aggie Memorial Stadium - Las Cruces, New Mexico LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A big offensive performance. A shutout by the defense. A punt return for a touchdown. Boise State is getting better. Even coach Chris Petersen agrees. Kellen Moore threw for 246 yards and three touchdowns, and Boise State’s defense allowed just 150 yards and had six sacks as the No. 11 Broncos beat New Mexico State 49-0 Saturday night. “I think there’s improvement. I definitely feel that,’’ Petersen said. “We’re still not there but we are getting better.’’ Boise State (8-0, 4-0 Western Athletic Conference) beat the Aggies 58-0 last season in Idaho and, after generating 495 total yards this time, simply kept things going a year later. Ian Johnson and Jeremy Avery took turns ripping off long runs, each scoring a touchdown. Kyle Wilson had a 71-yard punt return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. It was enough to convince Petersen that the Broncos are doing the right things. The injury-depleted Aggies (3-5, 1-3) were overmatched from the start, and head coach Hal Mumme had no problem admitting it. “We knew we couldn’t handle those guys,’’ he said. “They’re too good. If we’re at full speed and had everybody, we might have been able to make it a game. But they’re a very talented group.’’ Moore, a redshirt freshman, put Boise State up 7-0 on a 14-yard throw to Jeremy Childs midway through the first period. Wilson’s interception set up Johnson’s 11-yard TD burst, where he broke through three tacklers and dove into the end zone. After a fumble by New Mexico State’s Chris Williams, Avery added a 10-yard TD run. Moore threw a 23-yard TD pass to Austin Pettis and Boise State led 28-0 with 10 minutes left in the first half. Moore played three quarters, completing 14-of-22 with one interception. With New Mexico State’s defense missing tackle after tackle and a revamped offensive line unable to generate a ground game or protect quarterback Chase Holbrook, it was easy for Boise State on both sides of the ball.

Game No. 9 Boise State 49, Utah State 14 November 8 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore threw for 362 yards and two scores, and two Boise State receivers threw touchdown passes and the unbeaten Broncos earned a 49-14 victory over Utah State. The No. 9 Broncos (9-0, 5-0 Western Athletic Conference) rolled up 563 total yards and held the Aggies to 44 yards rushing and forced six turnovers. Boise Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense was sluggish at times in the first half converting on 5-of-12 on third downs and committing three turnovers, the first setting up a touchdown that closed the gap to 28-7 and gave the Aggies (2-8, 2-4) momentum heading into halftime. But the Broncos also showed their knack for scoring quickly and keeping opponents off balance with trickery. In the second quarter, Moore tossed a lateral to wide receiver Tanyon Bissell, who turned and fired a 57-yard TD to a wide open Jeremy Childs, the first of two TDs for Childs. Then in the final minutes of the third quarter, wide receiver Vinny Perretta took a handoff and faked an end run before zipping a 17-yard TD pass to Childs, all alone in the back corner of the end zone to put the Broncos up 35-14, sealing their eighth straight win over Utah State. Childs led Boise State receivers with seven catches for 135 yards, and Austin Pettis had seven catches for 57 yards and two TDs. Moore was 27-of-36 for 362 yards and one interception. Boise Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense forced Utah State quarterbacks Diondre Borel and Sean Setzer to throw three interceptions and the Aggies to convert on just 4 of 12 third downs.

2008 Season in Review 2009 Boise State Football Game No. 10 Boise State 45, Idaho 10 November 15 - Kibbie Dome - Moscow, Idaho MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Boise State usually moves the ball through the air, but Jeremy Avery had other plans against rival Idaho. Avery rushed for a career-high 156 yards, the first Bronco back to top 100 this season, and Boise State piled up 315 yards on the ground in crushing Idaho 45-10 to keep alive its hopes of returning to a BCS bowl. Boise State (10-0, 6-0 Western Athletic) won its 10th straight over the Vandals and clinched at least a share of its sixth WAC title in the past seven seasons. Idaho (2-9, 1-6) trailed just 17-10 at halftime. But Boise State scored the first four times it had the ball in the second half to blow the game open. Avery, a 168-pound sophomore, carried 11 times for a school-record average of 14 yards per carry. He added two touchdowns. D.J. Harper (67 yards) and Vinny Perretta (58 yards) also punished the Vandals. Quarterback Kellen Moore was not sacked and had plenty of time to throw. Jeremy Childs made 11 catches for 99 yards. Facing a defense ranked second in the nation by allowing just 10 points per game, Idaho managed 329 yards and one touchdown. Idaho scored on its first play of the game when Daniel Hardy took a short pass from Enderle and ran for an 81-yard touchdown. Hardy appeared to have been tackled for a short gain, but he rolled across the bodies of several Boise State defenders without touching the ground, then popped to his feet and outran pursuers. That was the high point for the Vandals. Avery ran up the middle for a 19-yard touchdown to tie it with 5:35 left in the first quarter. Idaho punted on its next series, and Kyle Wilson returned the ball 79 yards for a 14-7 lead. Boise State scored on all three of its third-quarter possessions, while holding Idaho to 39 yards in the quarter. Avery ran through a big hole on the left side for a 57-yard touchdown on Boise Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first possession of the second half. Idaho was moving the ball when Enderle was sacked and stripped, and Ellis Powers picked it up and ran 45 yards for a touchdown and a 31-10 lead. Boise Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next possession was an 89-yard drive capped by a 16-yard touchdown run by Perretta. Score by Quarters Boise State Idaho Scoring Summary UI 1st, 14:36 1st, 5:35

2008 Season in Review 2009 Boise State Football Game No. 11 Boise State 41, Nevada 34 November 22 - Mackay Stadium - Reno, Nevada RENO, Nev. (AP) -Trailing by seven with 28 seconds remaining, Nevada was on the verge of forcing another overtime thriller against Boise State. But the ninth-ranked Broncos, who held the nation’s best rushing attack to just 31 yards in the first half, did just enough, knocking down a pass in the end zone as time expired to remain undefeated with a 41-34 victory over the Wolf Pack. Freshman Kellen Moore passed for 414 yards and three touchdowns, including 319 yards by halftime when the Broncos led 24-3, but threw three interceptions in the third quarter to let Nevada back in the game. Ian Johnson broke free for a 66-yard touchdown run in the third quarter for Boise State, which clinched its sixth WAC title in seven years. Trailing by 21, the Wolf Pack intercepted Moore three times in the third quarter and returned two for touchdowns. Jerome Johnson went 28 yards with one and Josh Mauga went 46 yards with another to make it 31-24. But Wilson returned a punt 39 yards to Nevada’s 31 and three plays later Austin Pettis caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Moore to make it 38-24 with 10:11 left to play. On the next series, Mike Williams sacked Nevada backup Nick Graziano on third down for a 9-yard loss back to his own 4. Brett Jaekle’s punt only made it as far as Nevada’s 37 and Kyle Brontzman kicked a 50-yard field goal to put Boise State ahead 41-24 with 7:20 remaining. The Wolf Pack entered the game averaging 325 yards a game on the ground, but managed only 144 on the game - 75 on 14 carries by Vai Tau, the WAC’s leading rusher who entered the game averaging 128 yards per game. Moore completed 29-of-48 passes while Austin Pettis caught nine for 126 yards and two touchdowns and Vinny Perretta caught five for 126 yards. Moore threw a 60-yard pass to Perretta to set up the Broncos’ first touchdown on a 16-yard throw to Richie Brockle midway though the first quarter. On their next series, Moore threw consecutive passes of 18, 24 and 22 yards before Perretta took a direct snap from center and ran 3 yards for a score to put Boise State up 14-0. His 18-yard TD pass to Pettis made it 24-3 2:06 before the half. Score by Quarters Boise State Nevada Scoring Summary BSU 1st, 7:05

2008 Season in Review 2009 Boise State Football Game No. 12 Boise State 61, Fresno State 10 November 28 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kyle Wilson returned a punt 90 yards, wide receiver Tanyon Bissell threw for another touchdown on a smooth reverse pass, and No. 9 Boise State went from endangered to dazzling by scoring 48 points after halftime to beat Fresno State 61-10. Ian Johnson ran for 128 yards and scored two touchdowns as scouts from three BCS bowls watched from the press box. The senior tied the WAC record of 57 rushing touchdowns set by Marshall Faulk at San Diego State from 1991-93. The Broncos trailed for only the third time all season early and were up just 13-10 after halftime before Jeremy Avery ran for a 43-yard touchdown three minutes into the third quarter. Then came three more touchdowns in a 3 1/2-minute span to clinch Boise State’s third undefeated regular season in four years. Avery sprinted up the middle, splitting defenders at the 25, to finally put Boise State back comfortably ahead at 20-10 three minutes into the third quarter. Then Wilson took a long punt at his own 10, immediately sidestepped Fresno State’s Desia Dunn and took off. It was Wilson’s third punt return for a score this month, and the fourth-longest in Boise State history. Then Bissell took a handoff on an end-around out of the shotgun and threw on the run to Julian Hawkins, who was alone at the 10 and cruised in to make it 34-10. After Ellis Powers intercepted a tipped pass from Brandstater deep in Bulldogs territory, freshman Kellen Moore threw for another touchdown. His 16-yard pass to Tommy Gallarda made it 41-10. Johnson ended the third quarter by running 69 yards - pulling Owens 18 the final yards - to the 4. He scored on a 4-yard touchdown run on the first play of the final quarter and then on a 1-yard run midway through the fourth. Moore was 17-of-23 for 213 yards and two touchdowns. He completed all four of his passes on his first drive, including a 9-yard touchdown pass in the back of the end zone to Childs. The remainder of the first half was a trade of field goals that left the Broncos up 13-10, the closest any team had been to them at the break since Hawai’i trailed 10-7 here on Oct. 17.

2008 Season Review

Game No. 13 TCU 17, Boise State 16 December 23 - Qualcomm Stadium - San Diego, California SAN DIEGO (AP) -TCU’s Joseph Turner’s 17-yard run midway through the fourth quarter gave the No. 11 Horned Frogs their first lead of the night, which they preserved for a 17-16 victory over No. 9 and previously undefeated Boise State in the Poinsettia Bowl. Boise State (12-1) was trying to finish 13-0 for the second time in three seasons. The Broncos took a 10-0 lead on Ian Johnson’s 20-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter, but their high-scoring offense bogged down against TCU’s fast, aggressive defense. TCU (11-2) piled up yards if not points until finally wearing down the Broncos’ defense in the fourth quarter. The Horned Frogs moved 80 yards in 10 plays on the winning drive, with Turner finishing it off by shedding a tackle inside the 5-yard line and diving into the end zone for a 17-13 lead. There wouldn’t be a crazy, victorious finish for Johnson and the Broncos as there was two years ago in their memorable, highly entertaining overtime win over Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl. After Turner’s TD, Boise State got to the TCU 14 before having to settle for Kyle Brotzman’s 33-yard field goal to pull to 17-16. The Broncos got the ball back with 6 seconds left on their 33 and tried to lateral the ball after a catch, but Jeremy Childs’ desperation flip was grabbed by TCU’s Matt Panfil. TCU outgained Boise State 472 yards to 250. BSU had only 28 yards rushing. BSU came in averaging 39 points and 456 yards, one of the benefits of dominating the Western Athletic Conference. Johnson scored on a 20-yard run midway through the first quarter. It was his 58th career rushing TD, breaking former San Diego State star Marshall Faulk’s WAC record and giving the Broncos a 10-0 lead. Broncos quarterback Kellen Moore faked a sweep handoff to Childs, then handed to Johnson, who broke outside and found an open field. Officials brought to the ball to the sideline for Johnson to keep. The Broncos needed the cushion, because TCU’s fast, aggressive defense finally clamped down. Boise State defensive end Byron Hout intercepted Andy Dalton midway through the second quarter, and his 62-yard return included a nice spin move to get away from one TCU player and a stiff arm against another Horned Frog. Hout was a running back in high school. Hout returned the ball to the TCU 11, but the Broncos had to settle for Brotzman’s 24-yard field goal and a 13-0 lead.
