2011 Season outlook 7


2011 Position Preview OFFENSE

WIDE RECEIVERS

Gone are Titus Young and Austin Pettis, second- and third-round selections in the National Football League Draft, respectively. But the Broncos do have experience returning at the position in addition to a stable of wide receivers ready to step in and contribute. Redshirt senior Tyler Shoemaker started eight games in each of the last two seasons, setting career highs in 2010 in catches (32), yards (582) and touchdowns (five). He surpassed 100 yards by halftime against both Louisiana Tech and Hawaii last season, and has been named to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List entering 2011. Slated to back up Shoemaker at the Z receiver position is Mitch Burroughs, a redshirt junior with 17 career receptions (8.9 yards per catch) the last two seasons. At the X receiver position, Geraldo Boledwijn enters fall camp atop the depth chart. The redshirt sophomore started one game in his debut season, catching 11 passes for 160 yards. Fellow redshirt sophomore Aaron Burks will also be vying for time at the position after catching six passes for 58 yards in 10 games last season. Redshirt junior Chris Potter played in 13 games in each of the last two seasons, catching eight passes in each. The Broncos’ primary punt returner in 2010 showed off his speed on a 78-yard touchdown pass against New Mexico State last season, and will be competing for the starting nod at Boise State’s H receiver position in 2010. After playing as a true freshman in 2009, Kirby Moore redshirted the 2010 season. He is back in the mix entering 2011, and will be competing for a starting role at the H receiver position. He played in 13 games as a true freshman in 2009, catching 21 passes for 242 yards and two touchdowns. Also competing for time will be redshirt junior Tyler Jackson, who played in three games at wide receiver for the Broncos last season, and Anthony Clarke and Matt Miller, who each redshirted in 2010. Troy Ware joined the team for spring practice after greyshirting the 2010 season.

QUARTERBACKS

Kellen Moore returns for his redshirt senior season, his fourth as the Broncos’ starting signal caller. Moore was one of four finalists for the Heisman Trophy following the 2010 season, becoming the first player in school history to be invited to the ceremony in New York. Moore was also a finalist for the Davey O’Brien and Maxwell Awards in 2010, and was named All-America by the Football Writers Association of America. Boise State’s career leader in total offense (10,811), passing yards (10,867), passing attempts (1,219), passing completions (831) and passing touchdowns (99) has already been named to the 2011 Maxwell Award Watch List, and was listed on Preseason All-America Teams by Athlon Sports, Lindy’s Sports and Phil Steele. He enters 2011 as the nation’s career leader in both passing efficiency (166.74) and wins by a quarterback (38). Competing for the back-up quarterback position will be redshirt sophomore Joe Southwick and redshirt freshman Grant Hedrick. Southwick appeared in eight games in 2010, completing 17-of-24 attempts for 202 yards and a touchdown. Hedrick, coming off of his redshirt year, was named the Oregon High School State Player of the Year as a senior at Central High School.

RUNNING BACKS

Redshirt senior Doug Martin started each of the Broncos’ 13 games in 2010, earning All-Western Athletic Conference First Team honors after picking up 1,260 yards and 12 touchdowns. The yardage total is the sixth-highest in school history, and his 6.26 yards-per-carry average was the fifth-best single-season mark by a Bronco in school history. Martin also set career highs through the air, catching 28 passes for 338 yards and two touchdowns. Martin, who ranked 24th-nationally in rushing in 2010 (96.92) has already been named to the Maxwell Award Watch List, awarded annually to the nation’s most outstanding player. Martin is just the 10th player in school history to eclipse 2,000 career rushing yards, and he also ranks on Boise State’s career lists in rushing touchdowns (27; eighth) and 100-yard games (10; tied-seventh). Redshirt senior D.J. Harper is also slated to be in the mix at running back. He will be coming back from a knee injury for the second-straight season, playing in just the first three games of both 2009 and 2010. When healthy, Harper has proven to be a threat every time he touches the ball. He scored on a 71-yard touchdown run in Boise State’s seasonopening victory over No. 10 Virginia Tech in 2010, and in 2009 he averaged 94.7 yards per game and 6.5 yards per carry before the injury. Redshirt junior Drew Wright has seen action in each of the last two years, and redshirt junior Raphiel Lambert – rated one of the top players in the West coming out of Jesuit High School in Portland, Ore. – has been a member of the team for the last three seasons.

TIGHT END

Kyle Efaw returns as a redshirt senior in 2011, after appearing in each of the Broncos’ 40 games the last three seasons. He started seven games as a redshirt junior in 2010, and has been named to the 2011 Mackey Award Watch List entering 2011, awarded annually to the nation’s top tight end. He set career highs in 2009 with 31 receptions and 444 yards, and was named Offensive Player of the Game at the 2010 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Last season Efaw caught 24 passes for 299 yards and a career-high five touchdowns. Slated to back up Efaw is redshirt sophomore Gabe Linehan, who played in 12 games during his debut campaign in 2010. Linehan caught six passes for 82 yards in 12 games last season, including a season-long 21-yard touchdown catch against Idaho. Kyle Sosnowski redshirted the 2010 season, and Holden Huff joined the Broncos for spring practice after greyshirting in 2010. Both will be competing for playing time in 2011.

2011 Position Preview FULLBACK

Dan Paul served as the Broncos’ primary fullback in 2010, and also in 2009 following an injury to Richie Brockel. Primarily a blocking back in the Broncos’ system, Paul has contributed to the Broncos’ success both on the ground and through the air – the team finished the 2010 season ranked second-nationally in total offense (521.31). He can also catch the ball out of the backfield, recording multiple receptions in each of the last two seasons, and catching three touchdown passes against Nevada in 2009. Chandler Koch has served as a back-up tight end each of the last two seasons, but will enter fall camp working with the fullbacks. The redshirt junior caught multiple passes in each of his first two seasons with the Broncos, playing in a combined 19 games.

OFFENSIVE LINE

The Broncos ranked third-nationally in sacks allowed in 2010, giving up just 0.62 per game. The team also ranked second-nationally in both total offense (521.31) and scoring offense (45.08), sixth in passing offense (321.08) and 21st in rushing offense (200.23). Much of the success can be attributed to the team’s strength along the offensive line, and a majority of the components from last season return in 2011. At left tackle, redshirt senior Nate Potter enters 2011 as a candidate for both the Outland Trophy and the Rotary Lombardi Award. After earning first-team All-WAC honors each of the last two seasons, he has been named a Preseason All-American by a number of publications. He has started 21-consecutive games at the position since his redshirt sophomore season, and was a part-time starter as a redshirt freshman in 2008. Redshirt senior Zach Waller enters fall camp slated to back up Potter. He has appeared in 11 games over the course of his first three seasons with the team. At left guard, redshirt junior Joe Kellogg returns after starting 10 games at the position in 2010. He missed three games due to injury last season, and also started one game as a redshirt freshman in 2009. Faraji Wright is listed as the back-up left guard entering fall camp after appearing in eight games in 2010. Now a redshirt junior, Wright started three games at the position while Kellogg was sidelined last season. Another first-team All-WAC selection from last season, Thomas Byrd returns as the starting center in 2011. The redshirt senior has been named to the Rimington Trophy and Rotary Lombardi Award Watch Lists entering this season, awarded annually to the nation’s most outstanding center. Byrd has started at the position for the Broncos since his redshirt freshman season in 2008. Redshirt sophomore Matt Paradis moved from the defensive line to the offensive line last season, seeing action against Toledo. He is slated to enter fall camp working behind Byrd at center. At right guard, redshirt senior Chuck Hayes enters fall camp atop the depth chart. He appeared in nine games for

the Broncos last season after working along the defensive line in both 2008 and 2009. Redshirt sophomore Jake Broyles played in five games during his debut season with the Broncos, and could push for significant playing time at right guard. Redshirt sophomore Charles Leno, Jr. made two appearances in his debut for the Broncos last season, seeing time at both offensive line and tight end. He enters fall camp atop the depth chart at right tackle, with Brenel Myers right behind him. Myers, a redshirt junior, played in 11 games last season, including starts in each of the team’s first two games. Also in the mix along the offensive line could be a number of players who have seen time during their Bronco career: redshirt junior Michael Ames missed all of 2010 with an injury, but started eight games as a redshirt freshman in 2009; junior Bronson Durrant played in eight games last season; redshirt sophomore Spencer Gerke played in three games during his debut season with the Broncos in 2010; and redshirt senior Cory Yriarte has been a member of the team for the last four seasons. Joining the fold for 2011 will be junior Chris Tozer, who practiced with the Broncos this past spring after transferring from Foothill CC where he was a two-time All-Nor-Cal First Team selection. Greg Dohmen redshirted the 2010 season.

DEFENSE DEFENSIVE LINE

One of the strengths of the Broncos in 2010 was their defensive line, and a majority of the unit returns this season. Boise State led the nation in sacks last year, averaging 3.69 per game, and was second-nationally in tackles-for-loss (8.38). The team also finished secondnationally in both total defense (254.69) and scoring defense (12.77), and seventh-nationally in rushing defense (103.77). At defensive tackle, Chase Baker and Billy Winn each started all 13 games last season, and both are back for 2011. Winn, a redshirt senior, has been a secondteam All-WAC performer each of the last two seasons. He has been named to 2011 preseason watch lists for the Bednarik Award, Bronko Nagurski Award and Lott IMPACT Trophy, each of which is awarded annually to the nation’s top defensive player. He has also been named to the 2011 Outland Trophy Watch List, awarded annually to the nation’s top interior lineman, and the 2011 Rotary Lombardi Award Watch List, given annually to the nation’s top lineman. He has also been named Preseason All-America by a number of publications. Winn has 28.5 career tackles-for-loss and 12.5 career sacks. Baker has started 27-consecutive games at defensive tackle, and set career highs in both TFLs (6.5) and sacks (4.5) in 2010. Slated to back up at defensive tackle are redshirt sophomore Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe and redshirt junior Mike Atkinson. Tjong-A-Tjoe appeared in 12 games during his debut season, recording 24 tackles (11 solo), 6.5 TFLs and 2.5 sacks. The Broncos’ Defensive Scout Team Player of the 9


2011 Position Preview started three games last season and saw action in all 13. He finished as the team’s second-leading tackler in both 2010 with 65 (30 solo), and in 2009 with 64 (31 solo). Redshirt freshmen Dustin Kamper and Travis Saxton each redshirted the 2010 season, and redshirt senior Matt Wilson has served as a back-up linebacker each of the last three seasons.

Year while redshirting in 2008, Atkinson has appeared in 13 games the last two seasons. He recorded 18 tackles (seven solo), two TFLs and a sack during his first two seasons. Senior Shea McClellin returns at defensive end after starting each of the team’s 13 games in 2010. He garnered first-team All-WAC honors last season after recording a team-high-tying 13.5 TFLs and a Bronco-best 9.5 sacks, and also started the final 11 games of 2009. McClellin scored on both a fumble recovery and an interception return last season, becoming the first player since 1999 to accomplish the feat. He is a candidate for the Rotary Lombardi Award in 2011. Tyrone Crawford was named honorable mention AllAmerica by SI.com following the 2010 season, and he didn’t start a single game for the Broncos. Playing in his first season after transferring from Bakersfield College, Crawford tied for the team high with 13.5 TFLs and finished second in sacks (7.0) while playing in each of the team’s 13 games. Redshirt senior Jarrell Root has 8.0 TFLs and 5.5 sacks during the last three seasons with the Broncos, and he set career highs in each category in 2010 with 4.5 and 3.0, respectively. Any combination of McClellin, Crawford and Root could start for the Broncos in 2011. A number of players with past game experience could also push for playing time along the offensive line this season: redshirt sophomore Nick Alexander made two appearances during his debut season with the Broncos; redshirt junior Greg Grimes played in seven games during his first two seasons with Boise State; redshirt sophomore Justin Jungblut made four appearances in his debut campaign last year; redshirt sophomore Darren Koontz did not appear in a game in 2010, but played in 11 during his debut season in 2009; and Kharyee Marshall played in 10 games as a reserve defensive end during his 2010 redshirt freshman season, racking up 10 tackles and two TFLs. Also joining the fray for 2011 are David Cushing, who redshirted the 2010 season, and Tyler Horn, who joined the Broncos for spring practice after greyshirting in 2010.

NICKELS

Redshirt senior Hunter White enters fall camp atop the depth chart at nickel for Boise State. He has missed just one game during the last three seasons, and started one game in both 2009 and 2010. He has recorded 100 tackles (54 solo), 8.0 TFLs and two interceptions during his Bronco career. Slated to push for time at nickel are redshirt sophomore Jonathan Brown and junior Dextrell Simmons, who joined the Broncos for spring practice after transferring from Blinn Junior College. Brown made eight appearances during his debut season with the Broncos in 2010, registering 16 tackles (five solo). Simmons garnered honorable mention NJCAA All-America honors as a sophomore in 2010, and helped lead the squad to the NJCAA National Championship in 2009. Redshirt sophomore Billy Derome could also see time at the position.

DEFENSIVE BACKS

LINEBACKERS

After making the move from defensive end to linebacker prior to the 2010 season, Byron Hout started the Broncos’ first nine games at MIKE last year. He missed the last four games of the season due to injury, but still garnered AllWAC Second Team honors after recording a career-high 34 tackles (14 solo). Hout will be competing with redshirt junior Tommy Smith for the starting nod. Smith has played in 12 games each of the last two seasons, combining for 49 tackles (22 solo) as a back-up linebacker and special teams standout. At the WILL linebacker position, the starting nod could go to either Aaron Tevis or J.C. Percy. Tevis, a redshirt senior, started 10 games last season and eight games in 2009. He recorded 46 tackles (16 solo) as a redshirt junior in 2010, including 2.5 TFLs and one sack. He also picked off two passes, one of which he returned 43 yards for a touchdown. As a sophomore in 2009 he set career highs in tackles (54), TFLs (6.5) and interceptions (three). Percy, a redshirt junior, 10

The Boise State defense ranked second-nationally in pass efficiency defense (95.19) and fourth-nationally in pass defense (150.92) in 2010. Two starters return from the group for 2011. Senior George Iloka has started 27-consecutive games at safety for the Broncos, and earned first-team All-WAC honors last season. He is a candidate for the Jim Thorpe Award entering 2011, awarded annually to the nation’s top defensive back. He was the Broncos’ third-leading tackler in 2010, tying his career high with 63 (49 solo). Iloka has 12.0 career TFLs and seven career interceptions. Entering fall camp backing up Iloka is redshirt senior Travis Stanaway, who has registered 42 tackles (28 solo) and five pass breakups the last three seasons as a reserve safety and special teams standout. Starting opposite Iloka is slated to be redshirt senior Cedric Febis, who saw action in 12 games last season – he missed MAACO Bowl Las Vegas with an injury – and recorded a career-high 27 tackles (12 solo). Jeremy Ioane, one of the top safety prospects in the country when he signed in 2010, could push for playing time at the position after redshirting last season. Redshirt junior cornerback Jamar Taylor played in all 14 games as a true freshman in 2008, then redshirted the 2009 season. He returned and started 12 games in 2010, setting career highs in both tackles with 35 (27 solo), and in TFLs (3.5). Taylor is slated to be backed up by redshirt senior Antwon Murray, who has appeared in 17 games during his career with the Broncos. Starting opposite Taylor is Jerrell Gavins, who played in each of Boise State’s 13 games in 2010, including one start. Gavins also started two games in 2009 after transferring


2011 Position Preview from El Camino Junior College. Gavins intercepted one pass last season, and has 61 tackles (38 solo), 3.0 TFLs and seven PBUs since joining the team. Bryan Douglas redshirted the 2010 season, but could push for playing time, entering fall camp second on the depth chart behind Gavins. Also competing for time in the defensive backfield will be redshirt junior Josh Borgman, who has appeared in 21 games – primarily on special teams – the last two seasons; redshirt sophomore Quaylon Ewing-Burton, who played in one game during his debut season in 2010; redshirt sophomore Ebenezer Makinde, who played in eight games last year during his debut campaign; and redshirt junior Hazen Moss, who has 20 appearances the last two seasons, primarily on special teams.

per kick in 82 kickoffs. He enters 2011 as the top candidate for the job, with Goodale serving as the back-up. Brad Elkin redshirted the 2010 season after serving as Brotzman’s back-up punter from 2007-09. Now a redshirt senior, Elkin has the most experience at the position of anyone on the roster with 48 career punts (37.7-yard average), and enters fall camp No. 1 on the depth chart. Harman filled in for Brotzman in three games last season, registering the highest single-game punt average in school history against Idaho (53.2 yards on five punts). The Broncos return junior long snapper Chris Roberson, who has started at the position each of the last two seasons. Southwick will enter fall camp looking to take over as holder. At kickoff return, Martin and Burroughs enter fall camp as the primary options. Martin returned kickoffs in 2008 and 2009, averaging 25.1 yards per return including a long of 77 yards. Burroughs has also returned kickoffs, averaging 22.0 yards on two returns. Chris Potter enters 2011 as the starting punt returner after finishing the 2010 season ranked 13th-nationally in the statistical category. He averaged 13.32 yards on 22 punt returns, and twice earned WAC Special Teams Player of the Week honors for his efforts. He returned one punt 76 yards for a touchdown against Idaho in 2010. Burroughs will enter the season backing up Potter, having also seen time at the position in 2010. He returned eight punts for a 15.9-yard average last season.

SPECIAL TEAMS The Broncos will be replacing four-year starter Kyle Brotzman in 2011, who left Boise State as the highestscoring kicker in NCAA history. Redshirt freshman Dan Goodale enters fall camp atop the depth chart at kicker, with redshirt sophomore Trevor Harman also vying for the job. Junior Michael Frisina joined the team for spring practice after transferring from Saddleback Junior College, and he could also push to earn the job. Harman was the Broncos’ primary kickoff specialist in 2010, recording nine touchbacks and averaging 63.8 yards

Coaches and support staff


Head Coach Chris Petersen Under Petersen the Broncos have become a consistent presence in the national rankings, spending each of the last 37 weeks ranked in the top 25. Boise State has also made an appearance in each of the last 30 BCS Standings. The Broncos, entering their first season in the Mountain West Conference, compiled a 38-2 record in the WAC under Petersen. The team won league championships in 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010, and finished runner-up in 2007.

Success has come at extraordinary levels for Boise State head football coach Chris Petersen during his five years guiding the program. Petersen is the winningest active coach in the Football Bowl Subdivision, boasting a 61-5 record for a winning percentage of .924. The mark is the second-highest amongst active coaches at any four-year institution, regardless of division or association. He is also one of just six coaches nationally to have won multiple Bowl Championship Series games at his current school.

The ninth head coach in the 40-plus-year history of Boise State’s football participation at the four-year level, Petersen led the 2006 Broncos to their first undefeated season since 1958 - when the school was still a junior college – the school’s first BCS bowl berth, and the teams fifth-straight WAC title. Petersen is the only coach since 1900 to win 13 games in his first season at the helm of an FBS team.

Under “Coach Pete” the Broncos have put together five-consecutive 10-win seasons, in addition to capturing four Western Athletic Conference Championships and winning three bowl games. The Broncos have gone undefeated twice under Petersen – 13-0 in 2006 and 14-0 in 2009 – capping each season with a victory in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

Petersen guided the Broncos to one of the finest seasons in school history in 2009, posting a fourth undefeated regular season in six years, winning a seventh WAC championship and finishing the season with a No. 4 ranking in the Associated Press Poll. Boise State capped its season by winning a second Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Championship with Petersen at the helm, a 17-10 Bronco victory over TCU in a match-up of undefeated teams.

Following the 2010 season, Petersen was unanimously selected as the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year, awarded annually to a coach who represents the highest ideals both on and off the field. He was also recognized in the offseason as having the best Academic Progress Rate (APR) average the past two reporting years for FBS head coaches.

In 2010, the Broncos compiled a 12-1 record, earned a 26-3 victory over Utah in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas and captured a share of the WAC title for the eighth time in 10 seasons in the league. The Broncos began the season ranked No. 5 in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches’ Polls, and ultimately reached No. 2 in each – the highest ranking in school history. Boise State also reached its highest ranking in the BCS standings at No. 3.

Petersen is the only individual to win two Paul “Bear” Bryant National Coach of the Year Awards, earning his first after his debut season in 2006 and his second in 2009. Boise State went undefeated during both seasons.

Prior to taking over the top coaching position at Boise State in 2006, Petersen was offensive coordinator for the Broncos from 2001-05. During that time the Boise State offense featured one of the most potent attacks 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, Boise State finished in the top 15 in total offense four times, including three top-10 finishes – first in 2002, fourth in 2004 and seventh in 2003.

In addition to winning the Bear Bryant award in 2006, Petersen was a finalist for the 2006 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. He was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual and Eddie Robinson Awards in 2008, and for the Joseph V. Paterno Award in 2010. He was also named Western Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in both 2008 and 2009.

The Broncos also had four top-20 finishes in passing during that time, including a high ranking of fifth in 2003. Boise State 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.

Considered one of the most innovative offensive minds in the collegiate coaching ranks, Petersen and his staff have guided an offense that ranks amongst the nation’s best year-in and year-out. In Petersen’s most recent campaign, Boise State completed the 2010 season ranked second-nationally in total offense (521.31), in scoring offense (45.08) and in pass efficiency (179.94). The Broncos were also third in sacks allowed (0.62), sixth in passing offense (321.08) and 21st in rushing offense (200.23).

As Boise State’s offensive coordinator, he was twice (2002 and 2004) a finalist for the Broyles Award, which honors the nation’s top assistant football coach.

Head Coach Chris Petersen Several players have excelled individually under Petersen in his five years as head coach; the most recent example being redshirt senior quarterback Kellen Moore.

Moore received unprecedented individual recognition for his outstanding junior campaign as a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, as well as the Maxwell and Davey O’Brien Awards. Moore was also named WAC Co-Offensive Player of the Year after guiding Boise State to its third conference title. Moore finished the 2010 season as the national pass efficiency leader (182.63), completing 273-of383 passes for 3,845 yards and 33 touchdowns and throwing just six interceptions.

Individual honors are nothing new for Moore however, as he was also named WAC Offensive Player of the Year in 2009 after finishing the regular season with the nation’s top pass efficiency rating (167.35). As a sophomore he threw the second-most touchdown passes of any FBS quarterback (39) and tossed the fewest interceptions (three) of any quarterback that played in at least 10 games that year. His incredible interception to pass attempt ratio (0.69 percent; 3-of-431) broke the NCAA record for a single season. As a freshman Moore was named 2008 WAC Freshman of the Year, and he finished the season ranked 12th in the nation in passing efficiency and 24th in total offense.

In Petersen’s five years as head coach, 35 of his players earned firstteam All-WAC honors and 21 others were selected second-team all-conference. In 2010 the Broncos placed Moore, wide receivers Austin Pettis and Titus Young, running back Doug Martin and offensive linemen Nate Potter and Thomas Byrd on the offensive All-WAC First Team. On defense, defensive ends Ryan Winterswyk and Shea McClellin, nickel Winston Venable and defensive backs George Iloka and Jeron Johnson were also named first-team all-conference. Players who earned second-team recognition included defensive lineman Billy Winn, linebacker Byron Hout and defensive back Brandyn Thompson. Individual success is something Boise State has grown accustomed to under Petersen’s guidance, as he has helped develop a number of players to elite levels. As Boise State’s offensive coordinator and then as its head coach, Petersen 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. 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.

Head Coach Chris Petersen In 1992 Petersen was the quarterbacks coach at 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 AllBig 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 secondteam Kodak Division II All-America honors and still holds the Division II record for career pass completion percentage (69.6 percent). Petersen was inducted into the UC Davis Athletic Hall of Fame in 1993, and he received the inaugural Aggie Legacy Award from his alma mater in 2011.

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.

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 (15) and Sam (12).

Offensive tackle Ryan Clady also excelled under Petersen. A consensus All-American in 2007, Clady decided to forego his senior year and declared himself eligible for the 2008 NFL draft. He became the first Bronco to be 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 2009 two of Petersen’s players earned All-America honors. Moore was named first-team All-America by ESPN.com, SI.com and CBSSports.com, and senior cornerback Kyle Wilson earned second-team All-America honors from the Walter Camp Football Foundation and the Associated Press. Moore was also named AllAmerica by the Football Writers Association of America in 2010. 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 (Forsey in 2002 and Dinwiddie in 2003) were named WAC Offensive Player of the Year. Prior to joining the Boise State staff under former head coach Dan Hawkins, Petersen had worked at Oregon as wide receivers coach. He joined the Ducks 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 single-season passing yards, and three times in the same time period the team broke the single-season school record for most touchdowns. Prior to working at Oregon, Petersen served as the quarterbacks coach at Portland State from 1993-94, helping the Vikings advance to the NCAA Division II playoffs both seasons. 58

Bowl Experience

In his first season as defensive coordinator in 2010, the Broncos finished second-nationally in each statistical category, allowing just 254.69 yards per game and 12.77 points per game. Boise State also led the nation in sacks (3.69), ranked second in the country in both tackles-for-loss (8.38) and pass efficiency defense (95.19), fourth-nationally in pass defense (150.92) and seventh-nationally in rushing defense (103.77) - leading the WAC in each category.

In his debut season as the Broncos’ defensive coordinator, eight different student-athletes earned All-WAC recognition, five of which garnering first-team accolades: defensive ends Ryan Winterswyk and Shea McClellin, nickel Winston Venable and defensive backs George Iloka and Jeron Johnson. Defensive tackle Billy Winn, linebacker Byron Hout and cornerback Brandyn Thompson were each named to the second team.

2005 while also leading the Big Sky Conference in passing defense, allowing just 165.6 yards per game. The Bobcats were second in scoring defense, giving up only 22.8 points per game. MSU also led the Big Sky in total defense three other times - in 2001 allowing 358.0 yards, in 2002 giving up 306.8 yards, and in 2003 with 298.4 yards per game. With Kwiatkowski as defensive coordinator, Montana State qualified for the I-AA playoffs in 2002 and 2003, the team’s first postseason appearances since 1984. The Bobcats also beat in-state rival Montana in three of his last four seasons at the school.

With Kwiatkowski’s oversight of the defensive line from 2006-09, Boise State saw significant success at the national level. Boise State finished 2009 with one of the nation’s top defenses, ranking in the top 20 and leading the WAC in a number of statistical categories. The Broncos ranked 13th-nationally in pass efficiency defense (103.42), 14th-nationally in both total defense (300.21) and scoring defense (17.14) and 19th-nationally in TFLs (19). Boise State also led the conference in pass defense (179.86).

Kwiatkowski began his coaching career as an assistant at Boise State after an All-America and Hall-of-Fame playing career with the Broncos. He coached for eight years (1988-96) under three different head coaches in his first stint. During that time he coached defensive backs, outside linebackers and the defensive line.

Winterswyk and Winn were each named all-conference following the 2009 season, with the former earning first-team honors and the latter garnering second-team accolades.

Following the 1996 season Kwiatkowski moved to Snow Junior College in Utah, where he was the defensive co-coordinator and line coach for one season. He then coached at Eastern Washington for two seasons, where he coached Dario Romero, a first-team AllBig Sky Conference selection who went on to play for the Miami Dolphins.

Nationally, the Broncos finished 2008 ranked No. 2 in pass defense, No. 3 in scoring defense (12.6) and No. 20 in total defense (308.2), and also led the WAC in pass efficiency defense (94.4). Winterswyk and Mike T. Williams led the charge for Boise State, as Winterswyk was a first-team All-WAC selection and Williams was named second-team all-conference. In addition, defensive lineman Nick Schlekeway was a first-team All-WAC selection in 2007.

A standout on Boise State’s defensive lines from 1984-87, Kwiatkowski earned four first-team All-America awards in 1987 and honorable mention All-America recognition from the Associated Press in 1986. He was named the Big Sky Defensive Player of the Year in 1987, received first-team All-Big Sky honors in 1986 and 1987 and was named all-conference honorable mention as a sophomore in 1985. Kwiatkowski was inducted into the Boise State Athletic Hall of Fame in 1996.

In 2006 the Broncos were nationally-ranked in total defense (12th), scoring defense (25th), sacks (26th) and rushing defense (35th). Nationally in 2006, Boise State was eighth in rushing defense, 14th in total defense, 20th in scoring defense and 28th in sacks.

Kwiatkowski graduated from Boise State in 1990. He and his wife Lara have three daughters, Shelby (16), Riley (9) and Olivia (6).

Before returning to Boise State, Kwiatkowski spent six seasons as Montana State’s defensive coordinator. Under Kwiatkowski, the Bobcats’ defense allowed a league-best 332.2 yards per game in 59

Since joining the Bronco coach staff in 2006, Pease has made his mark on the Boise State football program, helping coach some of the most productive wide receivers in school history. Under Pease’s guidance from 2007-10, former Broncos Austin Pettis and Titus Young played their way to the top of the Boise State record books. Young was a second-round National Football League Draft selection by the Detroit Lions, and Pettis was selected in the third round by the St. Louis Rams.

Before moving to the Football Bowl Subdivision level as a coordinator, Pease spent 10 seasons at Football Championship Subdivision schools Montana and Northern Arizona, five of which as a coordinator. Pease served as assistant head coach, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at NAU from 1999-2000.

Pettis finished his career as the school’s all-time leader in receptions (229) and receiving touchdowns (39), while also ranking second in career receiving yards (2,838). Young, meanwhile, ranks No. 1 all-time in career receiving yards (3,063) and is No. 2 in career receptions (204). He also ranks fourth in career receiving touchdowns (25).

He was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Montana, his alma mater, from 1996-98 and was an offensive assistant coach for the Grizzlies from 1991-95.

Pettis and Young both played their way to first-team All-Western Athletic Conference honors in 2009 and 2010. Pettis earned the honor in 2009 after a record-setting season in which he caught a school-record 14 touchdowns, including a record streak of 10-consecutive games with a scoring catch.

Pease helped the Grizzlies establish themselves as one of the premier FCS programs in the mid-1990s when they won the FCS 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).

Pease also coached Jeremy Childs into the Bronco record books. The former first-team All-WAC selection currently ranks fourth all-time in career receptions (168) and holds the record for singleseason receptions (82; 2007).

While at Montana, Pease played a key role in the success of star quarterbacks Dave Dickenson and Brian Ah Yat. Montana led the FCS in passing in 1996, averaging 339.6 yards per game while leading the Big Sky Conference in both 1996 and 1998. Under Pease, Ah Yat threw a Big Sky-record 42 touchdown passes in 1996. Dickenson ranks first in Big Sky history in total offense and Ah Yat is 12th. Ah Yat led the FCS 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 Payton Award finalist and a FCS All-American in 1996 and 1998. Dickenson and Ah Yat combined to win five Big Sky MVP awards.

Before joining the Bronco coaching staff in 2006, Pease had 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 2001-02 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 – matching the team’s best record since 1984 - and was ranked 23rd-nationally in scoring offense.

Pease graduated from Mountain Home (Idaho) High School in 1983. He played quarterback at Walla Walla Community College from 1983-84 and then at Montana from 1985-86. 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 (15), and one son, Karsten (13).

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. Under Pease’s tutelage, Derek Abney ranked 10th-nationally in all-purpose rushing in 2002 and was 12th in 2001.

Gregory, a finalist for the Broyles Award in 2004, which honors the top assistant football coach in the country, helped lead California to seven-consecutive postseason appearances (2003-09). During his coaching career he has been part of 13 different teams that have been invited to a postseason bowl.

A 1987 graduate of Washington State with a bachelor’s degree in English, Gregory played linebacker and defensive back for the Cougars. He began his coaching career at Washington University in St. Louis, Mo., where he was the defensive backs coach in 1987 and the defensive coordinator in 1988.

His career has also paired him with Bronco head coach Chris Petersen on three different occasions. From 1998-2000 Petersen was the wide receivers coach at Oregon, and Gregory was the defensive backs coach for the Ducks.

He then spent two years as a defensive graduate assistant at Oregon before moving to Willamette (Ore.), serving as the defensive backs coach in 1991 and the defensive coordinator from 1992-97.

In Gregory’s only other season at Boise State in 2001, he helped the Broncos produce an 8-4 record during the program’s first year as a member of the WAC. Gregory’s defense was second in the WAC in both scoring defense (23.3 ppg) and rushing defense (118.1 ypg).

He also earned his master’s degree in educational policy at Oregon. Gregory and his wife Molly have two sons, Jack and Joe.

Huff, a 2002 graduate of Boise State, previously worked as a graduate assistant at Arizona State under former Bronco head coach Dirk Koetter. Huff ’s tight ends helped contribute to an offensive attack that ranked second-nationally in total offense (521.31), scoring offense (45.08) and pass efficiency (179.94). Boise State also ranked thirdnationally in sacks allowed (0.62), sixth-nationally in passing offense (321.08) and 21st-nationally in rushing offense (321.08).

In his first season as a full-time coach, Huff ’s tight ends were instrumental in Boise State’s 13-0 season and its 43-42 overtime win over Oklahoma in the 2007 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Tight end Derek Schouman earned first-team All-Western Athletic Conference honors in 2006 and was also a seventh-round pick by the Buffalo Bills in the 2007 National Football League Draft. As a group in 2006, Boise State’s tight ends combined to catch 36 passes for 401 yards and five touchdowns as the Broncos finished second in the country in scoring and 10th in total offense.

While working with the offensive line from 2007-09, Huff oversaw a group that helped contribute to one of the most successful runs in school history. In Huff ’s three seasons leading the offensive line, Boise State averaged just 12.3 sacks allowed each year. In 2009 Huff helped coach a Bronco offensive line that played a vital role in Boise State’s perfect 14-0 season, which culminated in a victory at the 2010 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The Boise State offense finished the year ranked first-nationally in scoring offense (42.21 points per game), behind an offensive line that allowed the fewest quarterback sacks (five) of any team in the country.

As a player, Huff started 40 games at center during his four-year career with the Broncos. During that time he earned first-team AllWAC honors as a senior, anchoring an offensive line that helped Boise State lead the nation in scoring and total yards. During his career, Boise State won three conference championships - one in the WAC and two in the Big West Conference. In 2005 he was named to the Bronco Stadium 35th Anniversary Team as the team’s center.

Huff ’s offensive line also provided protection for sophomore quarterback Kellen Moore, who went on to have one of the finest seasons of any quarterback in school history. Behind the Bronco offensive line, Moore threw for a school-record 39 touchdown passes, while tossing just three interceptions. Huff ’s group also blocked for second-team All-WAC running back Jeremy Avery, who finished 2009 with the seventh-most single-season rushing yards in school history (1,151).

Huff, a team captain his senior year, was also named first-team AllWAC by Sporting News following his junior season and was on both the Rimington and Lombardi Award Watch Lists as a senior. Huff, a native of Phoenix, earned a business administration degree from Boise State before receiving his master’s degree in secondary education-curriculum and instruction from Arizona State.

In 2008 Huff coached an offensive line that was instrumental in Boise State’s perfect 12-0 regular season. The Bronco offensive line also played a key role in helping develop Moore, who was then only a freshman, allowing the fewest quarterback sacks (13) in the Western Athletic Conference. Huff ’s offensive line also led the way for a Boise State offense that averaged 288.5 passing yards and 152.3 rushing yards per game in 2008.

Browning enjoyed an illustrious playing career at Boise State from 2002-06, which was capped by helping guide the Broncos to their historic 43-42 win over Oklahoma in the 2007 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. In the game against the Sooners Browning made six total tackles (four unassisted), one tackle for loss and was credited with one-half quarterback sack.

The Panthers averaged 453.6 yards per game in 2010, leading the nation during the regular season. It marked the third-straight year Ellsworth had accomplished the feat. The Panthers averaged 490.5 yards per game in 2009, and all five offensive linemen earned allregion accolades in each of his two seasons of tutelage.

As a senior in 2006, Browning finished the season with 46 tackles, 11 tackles for loss and 8.5 quarterback sacks. He finished his Bronco career with 143 tackles (57 unassisted), 21.5 tackles for loss and 12.5 quarterback sacks.

As a defensive line coach in 2008, Rodriguez helped steer the Panthers to a No. 14 national ranking in total defense.

Browning was a defensive tackle earning first-team All-Western Athletic Conference honors in 2006. He was also voted secondteam All-WAC as a junior and honorable mention All-WAC as a sophomore. In addition to his success on the field, Browning was honored by ESPN The Magazine in 2006 by being named secondteam Academic All-American.

The team made a bowl appearance in each of Rodriguez’s three years of coaching, and won back-to-back Region XI Championships in 2008 and 2009 – the first time Ellsworth had accomplished the feat since 1991-92. Rodriguez also coached three years at Sharpstown High School, where he helped lead a program that had not won a game in three seasons to its first playoff appearance in 30 years, and one year at Katy High School. He played prep football for Katy, and also spent three years playing minor league football.

2010 Season in Review


2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 1 No. 3 Boise State 33, No. 10 Virginia Tech 30 Sept. 6, 2010 - Fed Ex Field - Landover, Md. LANDOVER, M.D. (AP) - Kellen Moore and Boise State look as if they are going to be in the national championship chase for a while. Moore hit Austin Pettis with a 13-yard touchdown pass with 1:09 left and No. 3 Boise State passed what might be its toughest test of the season, beating No. 10 Virginia Tech 33-30 on Monday night. The Broncos (1-0) came to FedEx Field with their best preseason ranking ever and ran out to a 17-0 lead in the first quarter, then had to rally themselves to extend their winning streak to 15 games. Moore threw for 215 yards and three touchdowns. He led a five-play, 56-yard touchdown drive in the final two minutes - aided by a Virginia Tech personal foul penalty. After hitting Pettis on a quick slant for the winner, Moore sprinted to midfield with his hands raised high, waiting for a teammate to come and celebrate with him. Boise State took the 17-0 lead by taking advantage of a handful of critical Virginia Tech mistakes that set up two TD passes by Moore. But by halftime the Hokies had climbed back into it with Ryan Williams scoring twice to cut the halftime lead to 20-14. On Boise State’s first possession of the second half, Moore fumbled when he cocked to throw and hit his own lineman. Virginia Tech recovered at the Broncos’ 31 and Williams completed the fifth scoring drive of less than 40 yards in the game with a 1-yard run around the right side. Taylor bounded off the field and leaped into a side bump with a teammate. Virginia Tech, after a nearly burying itself in the first quarter, had its first lead at 21-20. It lasted about a minute on the clock. D.J. Harper broke a tackle at the line on a third-and-1 and outran the Hokies for a 71-yard touchdown. No questioning Boise State’s speed on that play. Virginia Tech blocked the extra point attempt and it was 26-21 with 5:38 left in the third. Back came the Hokies. Virginia Tech’s Chris Hazley was wide right on a 51-yard field, but Boise State was flagged for running into the kicker. Now with a fourth-and-4 from the 29, Tech went for it and Taylor zipped an out to Jarrett Boykin, who slipped a weak arm tackle attempt by Brandyn Thompson and eased into the end zone to put the Hokies up 27-26. They went for two and missed. Boise State couldn’t answer that score. Kyle Brotzman missed wide left from 30 yards and Hazley answered with a 34-yarder for Virginia Tech to make it 30-26. Virginia Tech had a chance to run out the clock, but couldn’t do it, Taylor threw an incomplete pass on third down that stopped the clock and gave Boise State extra time. With no timeouts left, that incomplete pass helped a lot. Mitch Burroughs broke a 25-yard punt return - a flag for a possible illegal block was picked up by the officials - that set up Moore at the Boise State 44. He hit three straight passes and on the third, a 14-yarder on the sideline to Pettis, Tech’s Bruce Taylor hit the receiver just a tad late out of bounds to tack on more yards. After an incomplete throw, Moore and Pettis connected for the fourth lead change of the second half - and there was joy in Boise. SCORING No. 3 Boise State No. 10 Virginia Tech

2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 2 No. 3 Boise State 51, Wyoming 6 Sept. 18, 2010 - War Memorial Stadium - Laramie, Wyo. LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -Kellen Moore threw for 370 yards and two touchdowns, Boise State’s defense forced three turnovers and the third-ranked Broncos extended their winning streak to 16 with a 51-6 victory against Wyoming on Saturday night. The Broncos (2-0) showed no signs of rust after a 12-day rest, piling up 648 total yards. They scored 37 straight points to begin the game, allowing Moore & Co. to watch the final quarter from the sideline. Titus Young had 94 yards on four catches, hauling in a 49-yard pass as he simply flew past Wyoming (1-2). Austin Pettis finished with three catches for 88 yards, including a 58-yard TD reception on a flea-flicker. Doug Martin finished with 105 yards and a touchdown and defensive lineman Shea McClellin added another score by pouncing on the football in the end zone. The Boise State defense came up big all night, holding the Cowboys to minus-21 yards rushing and 135 total yards. The team put constant pressure on quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels, picking off two of his passes. Boise State could’ve scored more, but had a long punt return called back and three drives stall out inside Wyoming’s territory, leading to three field goals from Kyle Brotzman. Before the game, Wyoming held a moment of silence to honor freshman linebacker Ruben Narcisse, who was killed in a car accident in Colorado on Sept. 6. The team handed out 5,000 T-shirts with ``Ruben Narcisse, Always a Cowboy’’ printed on it and wore decals with his initials on their helmets.

2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 3 No. 3 Boise State 37, No. 24 Oregon State 24 Sept. 25, 2010 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho BOISE, Idaho (AP) - With a national stage yet again, Boise State showed that even a flawed performance is good enough with Kellen Moore at the helm. Especially at home. Moore completed 19 of 27 passes for 288 yards and three touchdowns, Doug Martin rumbled for 138 yards and the Broncos overcame a litany of special teams miscues and penalties to hold off No. 24 Oregon State 37-24 on Saturday night. With a national television audience, the Broncos (3-0) got away with mistakes that will likely make head coach Chris Petersen livid for more than just the few minutes he spent chewing out his guilty players on the bench. Still, Boise State ran its home winning streak to 57 straight in the regular season and picked up their third straight win over Pac-10 schools in its final chance to make a statement against a ranked team for the next two months. Martin had 119 yards in the second half and Titus Young had five catches for 136 yards and a 49-yard TD reception - all in the first half. Austin Pettis caught a 17-yard TD pass - this time without the somersault that landed him in Petersen’s doghouse a week ago - and threw a 6-yard TD pass off a reverse to Tommy Gallarda in the first quarter. Martin was the closer for the Broncos, touching the ball on eight of nine plays on Boise State’s final drive that ate up more than seven minutes of the fourth quarter. Kyle Brotzman’s 30-yard field goal, his third of the game, pushed the Broncos lead to 13 and sealed the all important victory. The Oregon State (1-2) combo of Jacquizz and James Rodgers never got started offensively, even though James returned a punt 54 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter - the first punt return score of his career. Jacquizz Rodgers was held to 46 yards on 18 carries and a 4-yard TD run in the third quarter. James Rodgers was knocked out by an apparent concussion early in the third quarter while blocking on a scramble by quarterback Ryan Katz. Rodgers and Boise State safety Winston Venable collided helmet-to-helmet. The Broncos outgained Oregon State 469-237. Moore’s numbers were nearly double that of Katz, who completed 12 of 26 passes for 159 yards. Katz was sacked four times and Oregon State finished with 78 yards rushing.

2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 4 No. 3 Boise State 59, New Mexico State 0 Oct. 2, 2010 - Aggie Memorial Stadium - Las Cruces, N.M. LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Kellen Moore was 13-of-18 for 196 yards and three touchdowns, including two scoring passes to tight end Kyle Efaw, and No. 3 Boise State beat New Mexico State 59-0. Doug Martin ran for a 1-yard touchdown and caught a 28-yard TD pass from Moore, as the Broncos (4-0, 1-0 Western Athletic Conference) extended their winning streak to 18 games. Boise State, guarding against a letdown after victories over Virginia Tech and Oregon State, was the highest-ranked team to visit Las Cruces and sure looked the part. The Aggies (0-4, 0-1) never had a chance, not with the Broncos scoring on their first five possessions and Moore throwing two TD passes by halftime. Boise State got 21 points off three New Mexico State turnovers and led 38-0 at the break. Moore threw a 26-yard touchdown to Efaw to cap the opening drive of the second half, then headed for the sideline and donned a headset. Freshman Joe Southwick took over and threw a 78-yard TD pass to Chris Potter late in the third. Jarvis Hodge capped the celebration with a 54-yard TD run with 1:19 remaining. The Broncos, who enter the Mountain West next season, began their final push through the WAC schedule in style. They are 11-0 against the Aggies after another lopsided victory in a series where Boise State has won the most recent contests 56-6, 40-20, 58-0, 49-0 and 42-7. Mike Coughlin started the scoring with a 15-yard run on a direct-snap play, then Martin muscled his way to the goal line and stretched his arm across to score. Just like that, Boise State led 14-0 midway through the first period. Kyle Brotzman kicked a 35-yard field goal, Jeremy Avery added an 18-yard TD run, then Moore found Efaw wide open for a 41yard scoring pass that put the Broncos up 31-0 on the first play of the second quarter. Later in the period, Moore connected with Martin on a 28-yard TD play. Moore would have had another easy TD but it was called back. With Boise State working from midfield, he found Austin Pettis in stride for a long scoring pass that was nullified by a face mask penalty, and the Broncos actually were forced to punt. But that was as rough as it got for Boise State. Team Statistics

2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 5 No. 4 Boise State 57, Toledo 14 Oct. 9, 2010 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Jeremy Avery ran for three touchdowns, Kellen Moore passed for three more and the Bronco defense forced five turnovers to lift No. 4 Boise State to a 5714 victory over Toledo on Saturday night. Moore and the rest of the offense were clicking from the start, scoring on five of their first seven possessions to put the game out of reach early. Boise State (5-0) has now won 19 straight games, the nation’s longest winning streak after top-ranked Alabama was upset by No. 19 South Carolina. Moore was efficient as usual, connecting on 16 of 22 passes for 267 yards, including a 51-yard touchdown to Titus Young. Avery carried just seven times for 42 yards, but he made those touches count. He scored twice on 5-yard runs and another on a 12-yard reverse. Toledo (3-3) had just 278 total yards in losing for the first time on the road this season. Toledo quarterbacks Austin Dantin, who split duties with Terrence Owens, brought the Rockets to within 15-7 late in the first quarter when he scored on a four-yard run. But two other promising drives were spoiled by turnovers, the first when Dantin’s pass deflected off the hands of Kenny Stafford and was intercepted by Brandyn Thompson at the Bronco 16. One possession later, Rocket running back Adonis Thomas caught a screen pass and ran into Boise territory, but coughed up the ball after being stripped by George Iloka. The Broncos’ stingy defense, which came into the game allowing just 223.5 total yards per game, also got into the scoring act. Early in the third quarter, Dantin’s short pass in the flat was picked off by defensive end Shea McClellin, who rumbled 36 yards for a touchdown that put the Broncos up 43-7. The Broncos held the Rockets to just 65 yards on the ground and 287 yards overall. Dantin was 13 of 18 for 167 yards and two interceptions. But he was carted off the field early in the fourth quarter after colliding with a Bronco defender. Owens was 8 of 11 passing for 55 yards and a touchdown, a 7-yard strike to Danny Noble late in the fourth quarter. SCORING Toledo No. 4 Boise State

2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 6 No. 3 Boise State 48, San Jose State 0 Oct. 16, 2010 - Spartan Stadium - San Jose, Calif. SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Titus Young ran for one score and caught a pass for another touchdown to help Boise State post a lopsided win on the eve of the release of the first Bowl Championship Series standings, beating San Jose State 48-0 on Saturday night. Kellen Moore completed 14 of 16 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns before putting on a baseball cap and headset to signal plays in the second half of the latest blowout for the Broncos (6-0, 2-0 WAC). Doug Martin also ran for 68 yards and two scores and Young had 105 yards receiving to help Boise State extend the longest active winning streak in major college football to 20 games. The Spartans have played as tough a schedule as anyone, opening the season against then-No. 1 Alabama and following that with a visit to a Wisconsin team that upset No. 1 Ohio State on Saturday. This might have been the biggest mismatch of all those games. The 41-0 halftime deficit was the biggest San Jose State had faced all year and Boise State reached 500 yards of offense before the Spartans got to 100. San Jose State was outgained 537-80 on the night, the fewest yards in a game for the Spartans since also getting 80 in 1971 against Stanford. The only thing that kept this game from being even more lopsided was coach Chris Petersen’s decision to go with reserves for most of the second half. Boise State scored touchdowns on its first three drives and averaged more yards per play in the first quarter (10.6) than San Jose State gained in the entire period (8). The Spartans’ only first down of the quarter came on a pass interference penalty. The Broncos, meanwhile, moved the ball with ease, gaining at least 4 yards on all but one play in the quarter. Boise State converted on short drives, as Doug Martin scored on a 6-yard run for the first TD three plays after a fair catch interference call gave the Broncos the ball at the Spartans 36. They also scored on long drives, with Moore connecting with Tommy Gallarda on a 17-yard pass to cap an 84-yard drive that made it 14-0. Boise State also got touchdowns on a 17-yard end around by Young, a 43-yard deep strike from Moore to Young, a 43-yard interception return by Aaron Tevis and a 2-yard run from Jeremy Avery in the final minute of the half to make it 41-0. Moore broke Bart Hendricks’ school record for completions (650) by reaching 663 and moved within two TD passes of tying Ryan Dinwiddie’s school mark of 82. Team Statistics

2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 7 No. 2 Boise State 49, Louisiana Tech 20 Oct. 26, 2010 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore threw two touchdown passes and caught another on a trick play, helping No. 2 Boise State beat Louisiana Tech 49-20 on Tuesday night for its 21st consecutive victory. Moore was 20 of 28 for 298 yards while coolly directing the Broncos to 468 total yards. Tyler Shoemaker caught six passes for a career-high 124 yards and Doug Martin had 21 carries for a career-best 150 yards and two scores. Moore threw a 6-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to Austin Pettis, who snapped a threegame drought without a TD. He tossed a 32-yarder to Shoemaker in the second to give the Broncos a 21-7 lead. Pettis returned the favor in the third when he took a pitch on an end around and quickly fired a 7-yard pass to Moore all alone in the right corner of the end zone. The Broncos (7-0, 3-0 Western Athletic Conference) also got a big boost from Martin, who had a 2-yard run in the first that made it 7-0 and a 20-yard scamper in the fourth that wrapped up the scoring for Boise State. The Broncos never trailed, building a 28-7 halftime lead thanks to Moore’s accurate passing and some miscues by Louisiana Tech (3-5, 2-2). The Bulldogs used their hurry-up, spread offense to roll up 394 total yards against the nation’s top-ranked defense. But they hurt themselves with several costly penalties and mistakes. Louisiana Tech had a chance to grab the momentum after a bold onside kick attempt in the first quarter following Lennon Creer’s tying 1-yard touchdown run. The Bulldogs caught the Broncos flat-footed and recovered the kick, but the play was nullified by an offside penalty. The call angered coach Sonny Dyke, who was flagged 15 yards, forcing Louisiana Tech to kick from the 13. The Broncos made them pay as Titus Young returned the kick to the Bulldogs 17-yard line. Four plays later, Moore passed to Pettis to make it 14-7 with two minutes left in the first quarter. Then late in the half, the Bulldogs were flagged for pass interference on consecutive plays to set up another Boise State touchdown. Tight end Kyle Efaw recovered a fumble in the end zone to make it 28-7. Ross Jenkins was 24 of 39 for 222 yards for the Bulldogs, but was sacked four times. Creer had a career-high 157 yards on 33 carries against a Bronco defense that came into the game allowing 59 yards rushing per game.

2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 8 No. 2 Boise State 42, Hawai’i 7 Nov. 6, 2010 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore threw for 507 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 2 Boise State rolled up a school-record 737 total yards in a 42-7 victory over Hawaii on Saturday. Moore was spectacular, completing 30 of 37 passes and at one point hitting 19 straight in the first half to help the Broncos (8-0, 4-0 Western Athletic Conference) build a 21-0 halftime lead. He fired touchdown passes of 12 yards to Tyler Shoemaker and 43 yards to Austin Pettis, and his 83-yarder to Titus Young early in the third quarter put Boise State up 35-0. The Broncos’ defense did its part in shutting down a high-scoring Hawaii offense. Boise State sacked Bryant Moniz, the nation’s leading passer, seven times and held him to just 127 yards through the air. The victory gave the Broncos 22 straight wins, the longest active winning streak in major college football. Moore wasn’t perfect, however. He threw two interceptions, giving him four this season, and missed a couple of wide-open receivers before watching the fourth quarter from the bench. But those miscues hardly mattered, and his 507 passing yards were the third-highest total in school history. Pettis led a busy Boise State receiving corps with eight catches for 122 yards. His second reception of the game gave him 190 for his career, breaking a school record previously held by Don Hutt. Shoemaker had five catches for 117 yards and Young had five receptions for 99 yards. The Broncos also ran the ball well. Led by Jeremy Avery, who had 92 yards and three touchdowns on 10 carries, they rushed for 230 yards and averaged 5.6 per carry. Avery scored his first touchdown on a 14-yard run in the first quarter, then added a 4-yard TD to give the Broncos a 21-0 lead with 9:26 left in the first half. On the first play of the fourth quarter, he took a pitch from Moore, eluded a tackler at the line of scrimmage and scooted 19 yards down the right sideline. The Warriors (7-3, 5-1) came into the game with the nation’s top passing attack. Moniz was averaging 360 yards through the air in the runand-shoot offense, and his two favorite targets, Greg Salas and Kealoha Pilares, were the WAC’s top two in receptions. But neither was a factor against the Broncos’ defense, which held Salas to a pair of catches and Pilares did not play. The Warriors had just 196 total yards, and their only score came late when Alex Green ran 54 yards for a touchdown with 1:36 remaining in the game.

2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 9 No. 4 Boise State 52, Idaho 14 Nov. 12, 2010 - Kibbie Dome - Moscow, Idaho MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore raised his arms for yet another touchdown celebration, then dropped them on his helmet when the ball popped out of Austin Pettis’ hands. That was about the only moment that didn’t go perfectly for No. 4 Boise State. Doug Martin ran for 117 yards and two touchdowns, and Boise State beat Idaho for the 12th straight time. Moore threw for 195 yards and two touchdowns in the first half, Chris Potter broke three tackles on his way to a 76-yard punt return touchdown the first time Boise State touched the ball, and the Broncos routed rival Idaho 52-14 on Friday night. Boise State (9-0, 5-0 WAC) ran the nation’s longest win streak to 23 games and put an emphatic lid on the 40th and potentially final meeting between the in-state rivals. Aside from Pettis’ TD drop and a pair of well executed fake punts by the Vandals - the second of which went for 54 yards and set up Idaho’s first touchdown early in the third quarter - everything went the Broncos’ way. Moore threw touchdowns of 58 yards to Austin Pettis and 17 yards to Jeremy Avery with 12 seconds left in the first half. Moore finished 19 of 26 for 216 yards, after throwing for 507 yards in just three quarters last week against Hawaii. His pass efficiency rating of 180.9 on Friday night will actually lower his season mark that was at 192.4 entering the week. And his best pass came straight off the sandlot on his final throw of the night. Flushed from the pocket, Moore threw an on-the-run dart to freshman Gabe Linehan at the back of the end zone for a 52-7 lead midway through the third quarter. That was Moore’s capper, as he donned an orange baseball cap the rest of the night. The Vandals tried to size up Boise State when they took the field, some players venturing onto the Broncos half of the field before coaches and officials shoved everyone to their respective benches. That was the most fight the Vandals were able to put up. Their mistakes never allowed the sold-out Kibbie Dome to get revving. Potter’s punt return - the first taken back for a Boise State score since Kyle Wilson’s in 2008 - only set the stage for what followed. The reserve receiver shed three tackles, weaving through the Vandals’ coverage unit and giving the Broncos a 7-0 advantage just 41 seconds into the game. It only got worse. Idaho quarterback Nathan Enderle, who watched last year’s matchup with Boise State from the Bronco Stadium sideline, overthrew Justin Veltung on the Vandals’ second possession and was intercepted by Brandyn Thompson - the first of his two picks. Eight plays later, Martin piled in on an 8-yard run and a 14-0 Boise State lead. Enderle threw two interceptions in the first half, the second a crusher after Idaho started at the Boise State 29 following a failed onside kick and personal foul penalty on the Broncos. Enderle’s pass landed in the hands of linebacker Aaron Tevis. SCORING Louisiana Tech No. 2 Boise State

2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 10 No. 3 Boise State 51, Fresno State 0 Nov. 19, 2010 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho BOISE, Idaho (AP) -For one quarter, Kellen Moore was imperfect. The rest of the night, Boise State’s record-setting quarterback was nearly flawless, and was backed up by a dominating defense. Moore shook off an interception and fumble in the first quarter to throw for 333 yards and four touchdowns, two each to Titus Young and Austin Pettis, and the No. 3 Broncos used a smothering defense to rout Fresno State 51-0 on Friday night. After sputtering through the first quarter in their all-orange uniforms - worn for what was believed to be the first time in nearly 20 years - the Broncos (10-0, 6-0 WAC) rolled to their 24th straight win, extending the longest win streak in the country. The Broncos handed Fresno State its first shutout loss since a 10-0 loss to San Diego State on Nov. 7, 1998. The Bulldogs entered Friday night averaging nearly 400 yards and 35 points per game. The Bulldogs (6-4, 4-3) managed just nine first downs and 125 total yards. Moore and Young were the offensive stars and in the process added their names to even more pages in the Boise State record books. Moore became the school’s all-time leader in yards passing, jumping past Ryan Dinwiddie. By the end of the regular season, Moore could crack the 10,000-yard mark. Moore completed 27 of 38 throws, while Young grabbed eight passes for a career-high 164 yards. Even kicker Kyle Brotzman got into the record book, becoming the school’s all-time scoring leader, helped by field goals of 20, 20 and 50 yards. But much of this victory was courtesy of a Boise State defense that held Fresno State to just four first downs and 80 total yards through the first three quarters. Young’s counterpart, Austin Pettis, added 10 catches for 93 yards and touchdown catches of 15 and 6 yards in the third quarter. Fresno State’s best chance of at least making the chilly night interesting came on the lost fumble by Moore, who let the ball slip from his hands as he started his throwing motion. Defensive tackle Logan Harrell came up with the fumble and started toward the end zone, but the play was called an incompletion on the field. It was overturned on replay, but Harrell had nothing but blue turf between himself and the end zone. The Bulldogs offense could do nothing with the gift, with Colburn getting sacked by Winston Venable for an 8-yard loss on second down. Fresno State punted and immediately, the Broncos started taking control.

2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 11 No. 19 Nevada 34, No. 3 Boise State 31 (OT) Nov. 26, 2010 - Mackay Stadium - Reno, Nev. RENO, Nev. (AP) -Two missed kicks and Boise State went from being the darling of BCS busters everywhere to just another team looking for a bowl game. Nevada roared back from a 17-point halftime deficit Friday night, beating No. 3 Boise State 34-31 in overtime in a wild game for the Wolf Pack’s biggest win ever. It snapped Boise State’s winning streak and ended any hopes the Broncos would play in the BCS title game. A game that the Broncos seemingly had in hand slipped away when normally efficient kicker Kyle Brotzman missed a 26-yard field goal with 2 seconds left in regulation and another from 29 yards in overtime. Nevada’s redshirt freshman kicker Anthony Martinez didn’t miss his chance in overtime, hitting a 34-yarder that touched off a jubilant celebration from a soldout crowd on the Nevada campus. In the space of one bad half, the Broncos (10-1, 6-1 Western Athletic Conference) most likely lost out on playing in any BCS bowl. On the verge of playing in a big game with a win, they will likely be relegated to the Humanitarian Bowl, played on their own blue field in Boise, or the Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco. That’s good news for TCU, which was at risk of being nudged out of an automatic BCS bid by Boise State even if it completed an unbeaten season on Saturday by beating lowly Mountain West Conference rival New Mexico. No. 19 Nevada won’t get a BCS invite, either, because that is life for schools not in automatic qualifier conferences. But that didn’t stop the overflow crowd at Mackay Stadium from celebrating the improbable win by their team, which was a 14-point underdog and had lost 10 straight games to Boise State. Nevada (11-1, 6-1) rallied from a 17-point halftime deficit to tie the game with 13 seconds left on a 7-yard pass to Rishard Mathews, who had two second-half touchdowns for the Wolf Pack. But Boise State appeared poised to pull the game out after Kellen Moore hit Titus Young with a 53-yard pass on the first play from scrimmage after the score. Brotzman, who leads all active players in career scoring, pushed the short kick right, sending the game into overtime. Nevada won the coin toss and deferred and Brotzman came out to try another field goal, but pulled it left. Martinez, a redshirt freshman, came on after Nevada’s drive stalled, then calmly stroked the ball down the middle and the celebration began. The loss for Boise State was the first since the Broncos lost in the 2008 Poinsetta Bowl to TCU, and it came in the most improbable fashion. Boise State built up a 24-7 halftime lead and appeared on its way to a dominating win, but its offense stalled in the third quarter and Nevada began finding the rhythm with its punishing running attack. After being held in check by Boise State’s defense in the first half, Nevada outrushed Boise State 239-8 in the second. Boise State came into the game second in total defense, allowing only 229 yards a game. Nevada had more than that on the ground alone, racking up 288 yards behind Vai Taua and Kaepernick.

2010 Season in Review GAME NO. 12 No. 9 Boise State 50, Utah State 14 Dec. 4, 2010 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore threw three touchdown passes, ran for another and No. 9 Boise State bounced back from a loss that ended its BCS hopes, beating Utah State 50-14 Saturday in its Western Athletic Conference farewell. The Broncos quickly erased any doubts about their ability to rebound after last week’s crushing defeat at the hands of Nevada. Linebacker Derrell Acrey, one of 18 seniors playing their final game at home, returned an interception 31 yards for a touchdown on Utah State’s first play from scrimmage. Minutes later, Moore capped a short drive with a 12-yard TD pass to tight end Kyle Efaw, and a 2-point conversion gave Boise State a 15-0 lead just seven minutes into the game. The victory gave the Broncos (11-1, 7-1 WAC) a share of the conference title with Nevada and Hawaii, the Broncos’ eighth league championship since joining the WAC in 2001. It also set the Broncos up for a postseason trip to either the MAACO Bowl in Las Vegas for a showdown against No. 21 Utah or a trip to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco. Utah State (4-8, 2-6) rushed for 250 yards, but had just 41 yards through the air in losing to the Broncos for the 10th straight time. The Aggies finished the season with four wins for the second consecutive year. As he has been much of the season, Moore was efficient and mistake-free, going 24 of 34 for 237 yards and leading an offense that rolled up 453 total yards. His three TD passes gave him 33 for the season to go with just five interceptions. He ended his day with a 1-yard dive late in the third quarter to put Boise State up 43-7. Jeremy Avery rushed for 71 yards and a touchdown and the Broncos rushed for 202 yards. Efaw led the Bronco receiving corps with five catches for 76 yards and two touchdowns. His second score came on a 2-yard toss from Moore early in the second quarter. Austin Pettis had four catches for 51 yards and a touchdown. Boise State’s defense, gouged last week in the second half of a 34-31 overtime loss, responded as well, notching four sacks, two interceptions. The Broncos also held Aggie quarterback Diondre Borel to a season-low for passing yards. The victory put an exclamation point for Boise State on its 10 years of dominance as a member of the WAC. Boise State will join the Mountain West Conference next fall, but since joining the WAC in 2001, the Broncos compiled a perfect 40-0 mark against league foes on their home blue turf and an overall record of 75-5. For the Aggies, the loss was the 10th straight against the Broncos. But they made a run early, pulling within 15-7 in the first quarter when Kyle Williams found a seam on fourth-and 1 and dashed 40 yards for a touchdown. But Moore came right back, moving the Broncos on an eight-play, 71-yard drive capped by his second TD toss to Efaw. The Broncos closed out the scoring in the half with Moore’s third TD pass, this one a 4-yarder to Pettis in the corner of the end zone, giving the Broncos a 29-7 lead at the break.

2010 Season in Review Game No. 13 No. 10 Boise State 26, No. 20 Utah 3 December 22, 2010 - Sam Boyd Stadium - Las Vegas, Nev. LAS VEGAS (AP) - Doug Martin shook Boise State out of its brief postseason funk with an 84yard touchdown run in the second quarter, and the 10th-ranked Broncos dominated the rest of the way to beat No. 20 Utah 26-3 in the MAACO Bowl. Boise State had turned the ball over three times and was trailing 3-0 when Martin went up the middle and outran Utah defenders down the left side to give the Broncos a much-needed spark. From there, Boise State’s defense shut the Utes out and Kellen Moore threw two touchdown passes as the Broncos cruised to an easy win. The victory was small consolation for Boise State, which missed out on a possible Rose Bowl appearance in an overtime loss to Nevada in November. But the dominating win against a team that was at one time ranked No. 6 in the country was a reminder why the Broncos rode high in the polls before suffering their only loss in two years. Martin’s run came after a mistake-prone first quarter in which Boise State kept giving the ball away and making costly errors. Utah wasn’t much better, and when the Broncos began finding their stride the game quickly turned onesided. Moore, who fumbled on the third play of the game and threw an interception later in the first quarter, rebounded with a 25-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Shoemaker in the closing seconds of the first half to give Boise State a 16-3 lead. He added another 18-yard TD pass to Austin Pettis in the third quarter in a game that was more lopsided than the final score. Boise State (12-1), which had been ranked as high as No. 2 in The Associated Press Top 25 poll, came into the game a 17-point favorite but early on looked little like the team that was everyone’s favorite BCS buster. That changed with Martin’s run, with the Broncos taking control on both sides of the ball against a team that was a BCS team itself two years ago and had won nine straight bowl games. Moore, who finished fourth in Heisman voting earlier this month, finished with impressive numbers despite his rocky start. He completed 28 of 38 passes, including 12 to Pettis, who was playing the final game of a college career in which his team won 51 of 53 games. Boise State was plenty impressive against Utah, shutting down quarterback Terrance Cain and the Utes running game. Utah didn’t help itself by losing three fumbles and being penalized 10 times for 83 yards in a sloppily played game.

Bronco All-Time Records Boise State Football All-Time Performances — (1968 – 2010)

Originally Compiled By Tom Scott

1. Ties are listed in order of occurrence, beginning with most recent performance. (Ties separated by numerical rankings are decided by fractions.) 2. Season and career statistics include regular season totals only (except in 100+ yard game categories, as noted). Starting with the 2002 season, NCAA postseason bowl games are also included in season and career statistics due to an NCAA rule change. 3. Bold indicates record held by current Bronco players.

Bronco Bowl Games

Broncos Rally to Win Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl Boise State 34, Louisville 31 Dec. 30, 1999 – Bronco Stadium – Boise, Idaho “What a great day to be a Bronco!”

Head coach Dirk Koetter pretty much summed it up in his opening comments to the press after Boise State’s 34-31 upset victory over the Louisville Cardinals in the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl in front of 29,283 screaming fans at Bronco Stadium. The game, which featured 10 lead changes, was the first Division I-A bowl victory in the history of the school. Offense was the story early as the Broncos and Cardinals combined for 31 first-quarter points. Louisville started the scoring with a 40-yard field goal by Jon Hilbert which capped a nine-play, 50-yard drive for the Cardinals. Boise State, 10-3, came right back at the Conference USA team. The Broncos marched 80 yards and scored on a 3-yard run by quarterback Bart Hendricks on a fourth-and-one play. Boise State didn’t lead for long. Chris Redman, the Johnny Unitas Award winner, hit Arnold Jackson on a 54-yard touchdown pass after avoiding a sack. Louisville led 10-7. The Broncos came right back, again on an 80-yard scoring drive. Hendricks capped the drive with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Shay Swan to give BSU a 14-10 lead. Once again Boise State wouldn’t hold the lead long. Just 18 seconds. Zek Parker returned the ensuing kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown to put Louisville ahead 17-14 after a quarter. It looked like Louisville would build on the lead. Redman had the Cardinals in scoring position, maybe ready to put the game away early. But Shaunard Harts stepped in front of a Redman pass and returned it 80 yards for a Bronco touchdown to put BSU back on top, 21-17. Boise State helped Louisville out with turnovers as well. The Broncos had a chance to push the lead to 10, but Davey Malaythong fumbled inside the Cardinals’ 10 to keep Louisville close. Another Bronco turnover let Louisville take the lead into the half. Louisville’s Lou Wallace recovered a Damien Schilling fumble on a punt in Bronco territory. Ten plays later, Redman found Damien Dorsey all alone in the end zone to give the Cardinals a 24-21 halftime lead. A pair of Nick Calaycay field goals were the only scores in the third quarter. Boise State led 27-24 going into the final 15 minutes. Early in the fourth quarter, Redman led the Cardinals on a six-play, 60-yard drive, which Frank Moreau capped with a 3-yard touchdown run. Louisville led 31-27. Boise State came right back. Malaythong scored on a 5-yard run to cap a 10-play, 60-yard drive to put BSU up 34-31. Louisville had a couple of chances to win late, but one drive ended with a punt. The second was stopped by a Kareem Williams interception, the third of the day for Redman. The first quarter was highlighted by a 50-yard screen pass to Brock Forsey. Forsey, a redshirt freshman, rushed for 152 yards and had a school record 269 all-purpose yards. The Meridian, Idaho, native rushed for 86 yards in the decisive second half in earning Crucial. com Humanitarian Bowl Most Valuable Player honors for Boise State.

Bronco Bowl Games

Broncos Win Second Straight Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl Boise State 38, UTEP 23 Dec. 28, 2000 – Bronco Stadium – Boise, Idaho If Bart Hendricks hadn’t already etched his name into Bronco football lore, his performance in the 2000 Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl made it a no-brainer. The senior quarterback earned the bowl’s Most Valuable Player honors by scoring three touchdowns and throwing for a fourth in leading Boise State to its second consecutive bowl win, 38-23 over Texas-El Paso. Hendricks’ biggest play of the game came just two minutes into the second half. With the Broncos holding a slim 17-10 lead, he turned a simple speed option play into a 77-yard touchdown run. Hendricks turned up field at the line of scrimmage, eluded a couple of UTEP defenders and then found a lane down the middle of the field. Three UTEP defenders never could catch Hendricks from behind, showing the speed that helped make him the 1999 and 2000 Big West Conference Offensive Player of the Year. After UTEP added a late third-quarter field goal to cut the lead to 24-13, Hendricks and company expanded the lead thanks to the efforts of punter Jeff Edwards. Facing fourth-and-four at its own 37-yard line, Boise State faked a punt on the first play of the fourth quarter. Edwards took the snap, hesitated momentarily and then broke up field. He broke the tackle just before the first down marker, and then slipped outside for a 22-yard gain. One play later, tailback and 1999 Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl MVP Brock Forsey pushed the score to 31-13, taking a sweep play 41 yards for a touchdown. In a matter of just 20 seconds, Boise State had gone from punting to UTEP and holding an 11-point lead, to being up by three scores and close to landing the knockout punch. The Miners responded on their next two possessions, marching 50 yards in seven plays to answer the Forsey touchdown with a field goal, cutting the lead to 31-16. Texas-El Paso’s defense held the Broncos on the following possession. It took UTEP’s offense nine plays to score, cutting the Bronco lead to 31-23 with 7:45 to play. The Miner defense again answered the call, holding Boise State on the ensuing possession and forcing Boise State’s seventh punt of the game. But Bronco safety Travis Burgher forced UTEP’s third turnover of the game, stripping the ball free on the Miner’s punt return. Davy Malaythong came off the bottom of the pile with the ball and Boise State was back in business. Boise State’s next touchdown was the reverse of what Bronco fans seen had throughout the last two seasons. This time it was Hendricks who came out of the backfield in a pass pattern after handing the ball off on a fake run. Wide receiver Andre Banks threw the ball back across the field and Hendricks made his first career reception. The touchdown covered 11 yards as Hendricks went up to take the ball away from a UTEP defender in the end zone and seal the Bronco win at 38-23. Hendricks ended the game, and his impressive Bronco career, with 247 passing yards, a touchdown pass and two rushing touchdowns, while fittingly making the final Boise State touchdown of the 2000 season on a reception.

Broncos Complete Incredible Season with Victory Over Iowa State in Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl Boise State 34, Iowa State 16 Dec. 31, 2002 – Bronco Stadium – Boise, Idaho It wasn’t the start the 15th ranked Broncos were used to, but the end was very familiar. Boise State, the nation’s top scoring offense, scored just 7 first-half points but found its form in the second half and picked up a 34-16 win over Iowa State in the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl. The victory capped an outstanding season for the Broncos as Boise State ended with a 12-1 overall record and its third Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl win in four years. Boise State won its first bowl game in 1999 with a 34-31 win over the University of Louisville. The Broncos successfully defended its H-Bowl title the next year (2000) with a 38-23 win over the University of

Texas at El Paso. Boise State trailed 10-7 at the half for just the second time that season (the other coming at Arkansas, 24-0), while totaling just 107 yards of total offense before the break. It was a different story early in the second half. After forcing Iowa State to punt after three plays, the Broncos’ offense started to roll. Boise State scored on their first two possessions of the second half. Brock Forsey capped the first drive, which covered 54 yards on seven plays, with a 2-yard touchdown run. It was Forsey’s second touchdown of the day. On the next drive, Ryan Dinwiddie scored on a 1-yard quarterback sneak after leading Boise State on a 10-play, 51-yard drive for a 21-10 Bronco lead. “I don’t think we woke up until halftime,” senior offensive lineman Rob Vian said, referring to the 10 a.m. kickoff. The Boise State defense kept the Cyclones and all-everything quarterback Seneca Wallace in check for most of the game. Iowa State managed just 275 total yards on offense, and Wallace finished with 83 yards rushing and 107 yards passing while completing just 13-of-38 passes. Three Broncos finished with double-digit tackles. Sophomore linebacker Andy Avalos had 13, Wes Nurse and Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl MVP Bobby Hammer each added 10. Hammer finished with a career-high in tackles, including three tackles for loss. The Bronco offense added a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns, while Iowa State scored a meaningless touchdown with just 2:34 to play. The clincher for the Broncos came with 5:20 to play when Forsey scored his third touchdown of the game, his 32nd of the season, to give the Broncos a 27-10 lead. Dinwiddie connected with senior Lou Fanucchi with 27 seconds to play to account for the final touchdown. Forsey led the Broncos with 78 yards rushing on 24 carries. Dinwiddie completed 17-of-32 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown. Senior Billy Wingfield caught a game-best five passes for 64 yards to finish the season with 1,138 yards receiving, breaking the old record of 1,101 set by Kipp Bedard in 1981. “(Iowa State) had a good defense,” running back David Mikell said about Boise State’s lack of first-half points. “It’s funny, if we don’t score 60 points people say what’s wrong with the offense. I thought they did a good job.” Scoring Summary Iowa State Boise State

Broncos Cap Second Straight Nationally Ranked Season with Victory in the Inaugural PlainsCapital Fort Worth Bowl Boise State 34, TCU 31 Dec. 23, 2003 – Amon G. Carter Stadium – Fort Worth, Texas Ryan Dinwiddie ended his career as the most efficient passer in college football and led Boise State to its first bowl victory away from home. Dinwiddie threw for 325 yards and three touchdowns, the last an 18-yarder to Derek Schouman for the winning score, and the No. 18 Broncos beat No. 19 TCU 34-31 in the inaugural PlainsCapital Fort Worth Bowl. Dinwiddie hit 19-of-35 passes for 325 yards and three touchdowns to finish the season with 4,356 passing yards. He also completed his career with 9,809 passing yards, 82 touchdowns and just 20 interceptions. The win wasn’t secure until sophomore Mike Wynn, who had not attempted a kick for TCU all season, was well short on a 51-yard field goal try with seven seconds left. Prior to TCU’s failed field goal attempt, the Broncos missed a chance to clinch the game after Gabe Franklin’s diving interception gave the ball back to Boise State with 5:41left in the game. But Boise State then went three-and-out, giving the ball back to TCU with 3:27 left. In TCU’s final drive, the Horned Frogs converted a fourth-and-10 from their 20 when quarterback Brandon Hassell completed a 28-yard pass. The Frogs then converted on a fourth-and-one, when Lonta Hobbs just got the needed yards to the 28 with 40 seconds left. After three incomplete passes and a penalty, Wynn came out for a field goal attempt, but the kick was well short, securing the Bronco win. The score was tied at halftime with Boise State getting scoring plays from T.J. Acree on a 27-yard pass from Dinwiddie, a 54-yard reception from Dinwiddie to Jeff Carpenter, a 75-yard run by David Mikell and a 23-yard field goal by Tyler Jones. On the first play of the second half, Bronco linebacker Andy Avalos recovered a TCU fumble which led to a 37-yard field goal by Jones for a 27-24 Boise State lead. Another TCU fumble early in the fourth quarter led to Boise State’s final score, an 18-yard pass from Dinwiddie to tight end Derek Schouman. Acree was Boise State’s top receiver in the game with eight catches for 150 yards. Mikell finished the game with 101 rushing yards and Wes Nurse was the top Bronco tackler with 14, including 12 unassisted. Scoring Summary TCU Boise State

Broncos Perfect Season Falls One Game Short in 44-40 Loss to Louisville in AutoZone Liberty Bowl Louisville 44, Boise State 40 Dec. 31, 2004 – Liberty Bowl – Memphis, Tenn. Louisville snapped Boise State’s 22-game winning streak, which was the nation’s longest, in the highest-scoring game in Liberty Bowl history with a 44-40 victory. The Cardinals (11-1) won their third Liberty Bowl by handing the Broncos (11-1) their first loss since September 2003. Eric Shelton scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 1-yard run with 6:48 left, as the eighth-ranked Cardinals held off the 10th-ranked Broncos on New Year’s Eve. The Broncos had one last chance to win after Art Carmody’s 19-yard field goal with 1:10 left put Louisville ahead by four. Quarterback Jared Zabransky drove the Broncos to the Louisville 30 before his final pass into the end zone was intercepted by Louisville safety Kerry Rhodes as time expired. Everyone expected a high-scoring game in a bowl pairing the nation’s top two offenses. The teams didn’t disappoint as they swapped the lead five times. The 84 combined points topped the 80 points by Colorado and Alabama in 1969 and was one of a handful of Liberty Bowl records set. Louisville won only for the second time in seven bowls despite a season-high four turnovers. The Cardinals rolled up 564 yards, topping 500 yards for the ninth time that season. This was the biggest game in school history for Boise State, a program that moved up to Division I-A in 1996. The Broncos, who played their first three bowls on the blue turf of Bronco Stadium, thought they could keep up with an offense that had trailed only Louisville for most yards and points in the country. But the Broncos, who lost 12 starters from their 2003 squad, finished with 284 yards offense, well below their 511.6-yard average. The teams still rewrote the Liberty Bowl record book. They combined for the most points in the first quarter with 24, and their 52 points were the most for the first half. Boise State kicker Tyler Jones had a record 48-yard field goal on the Broncos’ first drive, and Bronco linebacker Andy Avalos had a 92-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter that bested the 79-yarder by Michael Jordan of Tulane in 1998. Boise State led as much as 34-21 early in the third quarter after scoring 24 straight points. The Cardinals settled down in the second half as quarterback Stefan LeFors drove them on an 81-play drive in eight plays, which he capped with a 14-yard TD toss to J.R. Russell. LeFors then gave Louisville the lead back at 35-34 when he ran in from a yard out with 2:17 left in the third. Boise State’s last lead was at 40-35 when Jon Helmandollar plunged in from 2 yards with 10:51 left. Zabransky finished the game completing 14-of-29 passes for 199 yards and one touchdown for the Broncos. T.J. Acree was Boise State’s top receiver with four catches for 57 yards and one score. Lee Marks led the Broncos rushing attack with 66 yards on 15 carries. Two Broncos were in double digits for tackles made with safety Cam Hall leading the team with 19 and rover Chris Carr adding 10.

Second Half Rally Comes up Short in MPC Computers Bowl Loss to Boston College Boston College 27, Boise State 21 Dec. 28, 2005 – MPC Computers Bowl – Boise, Idaho It was nearly a comeback for the ages. Boise State’s second-half rally came up just short as the Broncos lost 27-21 to No. 19 Boston College in the MPC Computers Bowl in Bronco Stadium. Boston College’s Ryan Glasper picked off Bronco quarterback Jared Zabransky’s pass in the end zone with 40 seconds to play to salvage a win for the Eagles, who led 27-0 with 1:30 to play in the third quarter. Boise State stormed back thanks to big plays. Zabransky found Drisan James with a 53-yard touchdown pass to pull the Broncos to within 27-7. The Broncos got the ball back when safety Marty Tadman picked off Matt Ryan at Boston College’s 33. The Broncos capitalized with a four-play drive for a touchdown that was capped by a Zabransky 2-yard touchdown run. Boise State crawled even closer after a big play on special teams. Quinton Jones returned a punt 92 yards for a score and Boise State was within a touchdown, 27-21. The Broncos got the chance to win the game with one final possession. Boise State drove to the Boston College 5-yard line after a fourth-and-nine conversion and a pass interference call on the Eagles. Zabransky found freshman Vinny Perretta for 32 yards on the fourth-and-nine to get the ball down to the Boston College 14. The Broncos’ drive and the hopes of continuing their 31-game home winning streak ended when Glasper picked off the pass. Jones finished the game with a school-record 151 punt return yards, and his 92-yard return for a touchdown tied the school record he set earlier in the season at Hawaii. Zabransky finished with 279 yards passing while completing 20-of-35 with one touchdown and two interceptions. Legedu Naanee had five catches for 52 yards, Perretta had a career-best four catches for a career-high 84 yards and Jerard Rabb and Jeff Carpenter had four catches each. Korey Hall led Boise State with 15 tackles, while Tadman had 11 tackles and an interception and Colt Brooks added 10 tackles.

Boise State Shocks the Football World with Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Victory over Oklahoma Boise State 43, Oklahoma 42 (OT) Jan. 1, 2007 – University of Phoenix Stadium – Glendale, Ariz. In what many say was the greatest game in college football history, ninth-ranked Boise State shocked the No. 7 Oklahoma Sooners 43-42 in overtime to win the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, leaving Boise State as the only undefeated team in the country. Boise State showed plenty of heart and resilience in edging the Sooners in one of the most amazing games in recent memory. In one of the most dramatic finishes in BCS history, the Sooners and the Broncos combined for 22 points in the final 86 seconds of regulation. Boise State lost an 18-point lead midway through the third quarter, then twice rallied from 7-point deficits. The Broncos appeared to be finished when Oklahoma cornerback Marcus Walker intercepted Jared Zabransky’s pass and returned it 33 yards for a touchdown to put the Sooners ahead 35-28 with 1:02 remaining. The magic began on a stunning 50-yard touchdown play on fourth-and-18 in the final seconds of regulation. Zabransky hit Drisan James at Oklahoma’s 35, and James pitched the ball to Jerard Rabb, who raced into the end zone with seven seconds to play. That play merely set the stage for more Bronco magic. Oklahoma’s Adrian Peterson opened the overtime with a 25-yard touchdown run. The Broncos answered with Vinny Perretta’s fourth-down touchdown pass to Derek Schouman. With Boise State down by a point, Petersen decided to go for the victory. On the decisive play, Zabransky looked at three wide receivers to his right, then handed the ball behind his back to tailback Ian Johnson, who raced untouched into the end zone for the winning 2-point conversion. The wild finish came after Boise State dominated the first 40 minutes, making it clear that the Western Athletic Conference champion deserved a BCS berth. The Broncos stunned the Sooners with two quick touchdowns to take a 14-0 lead midway through the first quarter. The first came on a 49-yard touchdown pass from Zabransky to James. Zabransky froze the defense with a play-fake to Johnson, then fired to James, who was all alone 10 yards behind Walker. On the next series, defensive end Mike T. Williams sacked Sooners quarterback Paul Thompson, who fumbled. Williams recovered at Oklahoma’s 9. Two plays later, Johnson scored from 2 yards out to give the Broncos a 14-0 lead with 7:28 left in the first quarter. The Sooners cut the lead to 14-10 before Zabransky and James connected again shortly before the half for a 21-10 lead. Boise State’s lead was extended to 18 points midway through the third quarter when Marty Tadman intercepted a Sooner pass and returned it 27 yards for a touchdown. But Oklahoma didn’t go away quietly. The Sooners scored a field goal and two touchdowns to cut the Bronco lead to 28-26, with the extra point still to come with 1:26 remaining in regulation. After penalties on their first two 2-point conversion tries, Oklahoma finally converted on a pass play to tie the score at 28. That set the stage for the climax to one of the most celebrated college games ever.

Last Second Field Goal Hands Broncos Defeat at Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl East Carolina 41, Boise State 38 Dec. 23, 2007 – Aloha Stadium – Honolulu, Hawai’i HONOLULU (AP) – Ben Hartman kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired to give East Carolina a 41-38 win over No. 24 Boise State in the Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl Chris Johnson led the Pirates setting an NCAA bowl record with 408 all-purpose yards. Johnson rushed for 223 yards, caught three passes for 32 yards and returned six kickoffs for 153 yards. But he committed a costly fumble late that almost sent it to overtime. With East Carolina trying to run out the clock near midfield, Boise State’s Marty Tadman scooped up Johnson’s fumble and returned it 47 yards for a touchdown to tie it at 38 with 1:25 left. The Pirates took possession at their 39 with 1:16 left and drove to the Broncos 17 to set up Hartman’s kick. The Broncos (10-3), making their sixth straight bowl appearance, almost repeated their last-minute magic from a year ago when they stunned Oklahoma in overtime in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl to finish 13-0. The Pirates appeared to have the game in hand when they took a 38-14 lead early in the third quarter on Brandon Simmons’ 3-yard TD run. The Broncos, however, hung in and reeled off 24 straight points. D.J. Harper’s 1-yard TD plunge cut East Carolina’s lead to 38-31 with 7:09 left. Boise State was driving to tie the game in the final minutes when East Carolina recovered a Bronco fumble which set up the Pirates at their 39 with 1:45 left. But East Carolina’s Johnson couldn’t hang on to the ball as he struggled to add a few more yards to his record, and Tadman returned the fumble for a touchdown. The usually explosive Broncos looked rusty and unprepared in the first half. They went three-and-out on their first four possessions, followed by an interception, touchdown and fumble. Boise State managed just 3 yards of offense in the first quarter while East Carolina racked up 181 behind Johnson’s 106 rushing yards. The Broncos’ lone highlight in the first quarter was Austin Smith’s 89-yard kickoff return for a TD. In the second quarter, Ryan Putnam caught a 3-yard pass from Tharp to cut East Carolina’s lead to 10. Freshman running back Jeremy Avery was named Boise State’s most valuable player in the game, gaining 69 yards on 10 carries, catching four passes for 43 yards and one touchdown and returning two kickoffs for 41 yards. Another Bronco freshman, Austin Pettis, was Boise State’s top receiver with nine catches for 89 yards.

Broncos come up short in one point loss to TCU at San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl TCU 17, Boise State 38 Dec. 23, 2008 – Qualcomm Stadium – San Diego, Calif. 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.

Broncos Capture Second Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Title in Four Years with Victory over TCU Boise State 17, TCU 10 Jan. 4, 2010 – University of Phoenix Stadium – Glendale, Ariz. GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -Boise State reached into its bag of tricks again and stunned TCU in a Fiesta Bowl duel of unbeaten BCS busters. After the Broncos pulled off a gutsy fake punt at their own 33-yard line, Doug Martin scored the decisive touchdown to give No. 6 Boise State a 17-10 victory over third-ranked TCU. A 10-10 stalemate came alive when punter Kyle Brotzman hit wide-open Kyle Efaw with a 30-yard strike with about nine minutes to play. Four plays later, Martin dove over a tackler from two yards out as the Broncos became the second school ever to go 14-0, joining Ohio State in 2002. (Alabama would also go 14-0 when it won the national championship later in the week.) The trickery evoked memories of Boise State’s BCS debut three years ago, when it pulled out a passel of gadget plays to defeat Oklahoma on the same field. Unlike that thriller, this game offered little drama until Petersen made another surprising call. The Broncos caught the Horned Frogs napping on the fake punt. Kellen Moore then completed three straight passes to advance to the two, and Martin scored to put Boise State up 17-10 with 7:21 to go. TCU took over at its own one with 1:06 remaining and marched to the Boise State 30 before cornerback Brandyn Thompson disrupted a pass by Andy Dalton, and Winston Venable picked it off to end the threat. Moore passed for 211 yards. Dalton finished with 272 yards and a score through the air, but was intercepted three times. Brotzman also made a 40-yard field goal midway through the second to make it 10-0, putting the Horned Frogs in the biggest hole they had faced all season. Boise State is known for its offense. But its defense did most of the work in this one. Thompson set up the winning drive with its second interception of the game. He returned his first pick 51 yards for the game’s first score. This was TCU’s first BCS game, and the Horned Frogs seemed a little jittery, with six first-half penalties and some early struggles by Dalton, who also fumbled a snap to go along with his three interceptions. Neither team could muster an offensive touchdown until the final minute of the first half, when Dalton hit Curtis Clay for a 30-yard score to make it 10-7 at halftime. The Horned Frogs capitalized on Boise State’s first turnover to pull even midway through the third. The Broncos had moved into Horned Frogs territory when All-American defensive end Jerry Hughes stripped Martin and recovered the ball at TCU’s 43-yard line. Eight plays later, Ross Evans kicked a 29-yard field goal to tie it at 10. The Broncos struck first on the return by Thompson, who cut in front of Antoine Hicks, picked off the pass and raced untouched into the end zone in the first quarter. Dalton had thrown only five interceptions in 279 pass attempts during the regular season, when he earned first-team All-Mountain West Conference honors. But the Broncos put pressure on Dalton from the start; late in the first quarter, unblocked cornerback Kyle Wilson blitzed and flattened Dalton, who came out for one play.

Bronco Bowl Games

Broncos Dominate Utah in MAACO Bowl Las Vegas Victory Boise State 26, Utah 3 Dec. 22, 2010 – Sam Boyd Stadium – Las Vegas, Nev. LAS VEGAS (AP) - Doug Martin shook Boise State out of its brief postseason funk with an 84-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, and the 10th-ranked Broncos dominated the rest of the way beat No. 20 Utah 26-3 in the MAACO Bowl. Boise State had turned the ball over three times and was trailing 3-0 when Martin went up the middle and outran Utah defenders down the left side to give the Broncos a much-needed spark. From there, Boise State’s defense shut the Utes out and Kellen Moore threw two touchdown passes as the Broncos cruised to an easy win. ``It was a startup for our team,’’ Martin said. ``A momentum changer.’’ The victory was small consolation for Boise State, which missed out on a possible Rose Bowl appearance. But the dominating win against a team that was at one time ranked No. 6 in the country was a reminder why the Broncos rode high in the polls before suffering their only

loss in two years. ``Boise State is a heck of a football team,’’ Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. ``When you play a team the caliber of Boise State you have to play better than we did tonight.’’ Martin’s run came after a mistake-prone first quarter in which Boise State kept giving the ball away and making costly errors. Utah wasn’t much better, and when the Broncos began finding their stride the game quickly turned one-sided. Moore, who fumbled on the third play of the game and threw an interception later in the first quarter, rebounded with a 25-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Shoemaker in the closing seconds of the first half to give Boise State a 16-3 lead. He added another 18-yard TD pass to Austin Pettis in the third quarter in a game that was more lopsided than the final score. Boise State (12-1), which had been ranked as high as No. 2 in The Associated Press Top 25 poll this year and once seemed headed for a New Year’s Day bowl, came into the game a 17-point favorite but early on looked little like the team that was everyone’s favorite BCS buster. That changed with Martin’s run, with the Broncos taking control on both sides of the ball against a team that was a BCS team itself two years ago and had won nine straight bowl games. Moore, who finished fourth in Heisman voting earlier, finished with impressive numbers despite his rocky start. He completed 28 of 38 passes, including 12 to Pettis, who was playing the final game of a college career in which his team won 51 of 53 games. Boise State was plenty impressive against Utah, shutting down quarterback Terrance Cain and the Utes running game. Utah didn’t help itself by losing three fumbles and being penalized 10 times for 83 yards in a sloppily played game. Boise State kicker Kyle Brotzman became the all-time NCAA leader in points kicking with a 29-yard field goal in the second quarter. Brotzman added another field goal in the fourth quarter but had a mixed night, getting one attempt blocked and dropping a pass while wide open on a fake punt.

Bronco Championship Teams

1971 Broncos: 10-2 Overall; 4-2 Big Sky; Camellia Bowl Champions Head Coach: Tony Knap

Led by quarterback Eric Guthrie, the 1971 Boise State football team provided Bronco fans with one big win after another en route to a 10-2 overall record. Guthrie started the season with a bang, throwing for 297 yards in Boise State’s season opening 42-14 throttling of the University of Idaho in the first-ever meeting between the two schools. All told, he would lead the Broncos to nine regular season victories, including a perfect 7-0 mark at Bronco Stadium. A successful regular season earned Boise State a spot opposite Chico State in the Camellia Bowl, held in Sacramento, California. It would take a monster fourth quarter to end the 1971 season with a bowl victory, as Boise State scored 25 points in the final 15 minutes to pull out a thrilling 32-28 victory over a stunned Chico State team. Guthrie completed 19-of-43 passes for 282 yards during the nationally televised game and was named Camellia Bowl MVP by ABC Sports.

The dream season for Boise State football took place in 1980 as the Broncos captured not only the Big Sky Conference title but also the NCAA Division I-AA national championship. A convincing 28-7 road victory over Division I-A Utah set the stage for what would be a memorable year. Boise State picked up wins in eight of its final nine games, while outscoring the Big Sky opposition by an average of 17 points per game en route to a league-best 6-1 record. Boise State’s march to the national title included a 14-9 upset semifinal victory over highly touted Grambling on a cold and foggy day in Bronco Stadium. Quarterback Joe Aliotti threw scoring passes to Cedric Minter and Kipp Bedard, just supplying enough offense for the win. But it was the Bronco defense that stole the show, limiting Grambling to just 41 passing yards and preserving the victory with a big defensive stand just yards from the goal line on Grambling’s final possession. The Broncos did not let a ticket to the national championship game slip away, downing Eastern Kentucky in arguably one of the greatest football game in Boise State history. After falling 1980 Broncos: 10-3 Overall; 6-1 Big behind 29-24 with less than a minute to play, Aliotti led the Sky; Big Sky Conference Broncos on a game-winning drive that took just 43 seconds Champions; NCAA Division I-AA off the game clock, but will be remembered forever by those close to the Bronco program. The final scoring play came on National Champions fourth-and-10 with 20 seconds to play, as Aliotti scrambled far Head Coach: Jim Criner to the right and threw back across the field to tight end Duane Dlouhy, who caught the game winner in the left corner of the end zone for a 31-29 lead to secure the dream season. 135


Bronco Championship Teams Magical is the only way to describe the 1994 season, as an unknown group of Broncos went from 3-8 in 1993 all the way to 13-2 a year later. Along the way, Boise State upset the No. 1, 2 and 3 ranked teams in the country and ignited the fans of Boise. The magical season opened with a sixgame win streak, including a 37-27 victory over Division I-A Nevada in mid-September. If that wasn’t enough, the Broncos put together a seven-game win streak during October, November and December. Included in that streak was an emotional 27-24 victory over Idaho, which sealed the Big Sky Conference title. Three home games during the Division I-AA playoffs supplied Boise with plenty of 1994 Broncos: 13-2 Overall; 6-1 Big Sky; heart-stopping moments. Cornerback DaWuan Miller’s fourth Big Sky Conference Champions; quarter interception capped an amazing come-from-behind win over North Texas in the first round. Two Tony Hilde touchdown NCAA Division I-AA National passes to Ryan Ikebe were just enough for the Broncos to survive Runner-up Appalachian State in the quarterfinals. That set up a semifinal showdown with powerful Marshall, and another comeback Head Coach: Pokey Allen which included 21 unanswered points and a late defensive stand that sealed a 28-24 Boise State victory. Some say the Broncos used up their remaining magic in that semifinal victory and didn’t have enough to overcome top-ranked Youngstown State in the Division I-AA national championship game at Huntington, West Virginia. But despite the 28-14 loss, the 1994 season may have been the most exciting in school history as the Broncos set a school record for wins and completed the second-best one-season turnaround in NCAA history. Unchartered territory. That’s where the 1999 Boise State football team traveled. Behind a 10-3 overall record and a 34-31 victory over Louisville in the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl, the 1999 Broncos earned Boise State its first-ever Division I-A conference championship and bowl victory. The Broncos shook off a sluggish 1-2 start to the season, winning nine of the final 10 games. The midseason turnaround started with backto-back victories over Mountain West Conference foes New Mexico and Utah and ended with a dominating 45-14 victory over Idaho to wrap up the Big West title. During the team’s six-game win streak to end the season, Boise State was simply overpowering. The Broncos outscored the opposition by an average margin of 45.3-20.8 per game, with three of the six games during that memorable stretch decided by 30 points or more. A Big West crown kept the team at home during the bowl season, as the Broncos took part in Boise’s very own 1999 Broncos: 10-3 Overall; 5-1 Big Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl.

One of the most difficult tasks in athletics is repeating a championship performance. For the Boise State football team, one goal stood above all others during the 2000 season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; duplicating the success of 1999 when the Broncos went from unknown to Big West Conference and Crucial. com Humanitarian Bowl champions. But unlike the previous year, Boise State was far from an unknown in 2000 as expections and preseason hype, which included a top 25 ranking by the New York Times and the overwhelming choice by Big West media and coaches to repeat as league champions, followed the team from the start of fall practice through the regular season finale in mid-November. Head coach Dirk Koetter and his staff preached a one-game-at-a-time approach, beginning with a seasonopening road trip to the University of New Mexico. The Broncos jumped on the Mountain West Conference Lobos early, and set the tone for a championship season with a 31-14 road victory to start the year. An impressive start to the season continued into Big West Conference play, as the Broncos reeled off six straight wins to end the regular season. Included was a perfect 5-0 league record, in which domination was the only way to describe Boise State. The Broncos averaged 53 points per game and outscored their Big West opposition by an average of 32 points per game. The 2000 season culminated with a second straight invite to the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl, where the Broncos met Western Athletic Conference co-champion UTEP. Led by senior quarterback Bart Hendricks, Boise State built a 31-13 second half lead en route to a 38-23 victory and back-to-back bowl championships. Hendricks earned game MVP honors after accounting for four touchdowns. It capped an incredible season for the record-setting quarterback as he earned Big West Offensive Player of the Year honors, was a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, set 10 different single season or career school records, led the nation in touchdown passes and was the highest-rated passer in the country. Boise State met its ultimate goal in 2000, repeating as conference and bowl champions. National attention followed as well when the Broncos produced consecutive 10-win seasons and finished the season ranked 33rd in the country by the Associated Press and 37th in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll.

Bronco Championship Teams

Boise State had never experienced a season like the one in 2002. Minus one seven-turnover hiccup at Arkansas, it may have been a perfect season. The Broncos raced to a 12-1 record, finished the WAC season with a perfect 8-0 mark, cracked both the ESPN/ USA Today and Associated Press Top 25 polls for the first time in school history and won their third Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl in four years. Along the way, Boise State put together the country’s top scoring offense, led the nation in total offensive yards and was the most efficient passing team in I-A football. The Broncos had the nation’s leading scorer, Brock Forsey, who tallied a school-record 32 touchdowns and swept the WAC’s postseason awards in the three major categories. Forsey was honored as the Offensive Player of the Year, while safety Quintin Mikell was named the Defensive Player of the Year and head coach Dan Hawkins earned Coach of the Year honors. The Bronco offense rolled over just about everybody. The 2002 WAC champs scored over 50 points in four straight games and in five of six at one point. Included in that run was a pair of 60-point games, 63-38 win over Utah State and an amazing 67-21 win over Fresno State. Throw in a 58-31 win over WAC runner-up Hawai’i in that stretch and you can see why Boise State placed four players – Forsey, quarterback Ryan Dinwiddie, center Scott Huff, and right guard Rob Vian – on the All-WAC first team, and one more (wide receiver Billy Wingfield) on the All-WAC second team. While the offense received the majority of the headlines, the Bronco defense proved to be the best in the WAC. The Bronco “D” held four opponents under 10 points, all of those efforts coming during the last five weeks of season. While Mikell was the only Bronco to earn first-team all-league honors, three others were on the second team – defensive end Ryan Nelson, linebacker Chauncey Ako and cornerback Gabe Franklin. The Bronco special teams were, well, special. Tim Gilligan and David Mikell were two of the top return men in college football, while a hard-hitting coverage team led by Kameron Merritt, Donny Heck, and Brad Allen provided big play after big play. Kickers Nick Calaycay and Tyler Jones both helped spark Boise State to wins. Calaycay finished the season sixth in the nation in scoring despite missing three games with an injury, while Jones was so adept at kicking off for touchbacks that he was named special teams player of the week following Boise State’s 58-3 win at UTEP. In the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl the Broncos capped the season with the one missing piece that has plagued the program since moving up to NCAA Division I-A – a win over a power conference team. The victim would be Iowa State of the Big 12 as the Broncos overcame a sluggish first half before posting a 34-16 victory. When the 2002 season began, the motto for the season was “Leave No Doubt.” Following a WAC championship, a 12-1 record, a top 25 ranking and a postseason bowl victory, the Broncos “Left No Doubt.”

For the second straight season, the Boise State football team made noise on the national scene. A year after cracking the top 25 for the first time and winning a third bowl game in four years, and despite losing eight starters on offense, the 2003 Bronco team may have bested the incredible season put together by the 2002 team. Boise State climbed into the national rankings, where it finished 15th in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, 16th in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll and 17th in the final BCS rankings. Once again the Broncos raced through the WAC, winning all eight of their league games. But this time, Boise State did it with arguably the toughest road schedule in school history, winning at Fresno State, Hawai’i, and Louisiana Tech among others. And this time the Broncos won a bowl away from the friendly confines of Bronco Stadium, capping their 13-1 season with an impressive 34-31 win over TCU in the PlainsCapital Fort Worth Bowl on the Horned Frogs’ home field. The only thing that kept the Broncos from the first undefeated season in school history was a narrow, and controversial, 26-24 loss at Oregon State during the third week of the season. Boise State dominated its opponents on both offense and defense during the season, winning by a combined score of 43.0 to 17.1. Boise State ranked first in the country in scoring for the second straight season. The Broncos also finished third in passing efficiency, fifth in passing offense and seventh in total offense. The Broncos were nearly as productive on defense, finishing 12th in scoring defense, 11th in rushing defense and seventh in pass efficiency defense. On special teams the Broncos were 15th in both kickoff and punt returns. Individually, Ryan Dinwiddie capped a stellar career, earning WAC Offensive Player of the Year honors while setting a NCAA career passing efficiency record. Tim Gilligan, who set a single-season receiving yards record at Boise State, Andy Avalos, Wes Nurse and Julius Roberts joined Dinwiddie on the All-WAC first team. Boise State also placed 11 other Broncos on either the All-WAC second team or on the All-WAC honorable mention team. Nine of the 11 starters on defense earned All-WAC recognition, while six starters on offense and the Broncos‘ field goal kicker also earned All-WAC honors.

The 2004 football season is one that will go down in the history books as one of the greatest in school history at the time. Coming into the year, few expected it could get any better than what had happened over the previous two seasons. They were wrong. After back-to-back one-loss regular seasons and the loss of 12 starters from the 2003 team, experts thought Boise State’s run among the nation’s elite was over. They were wrong as well. Despite fielding the second-youngest team in the country, and despite losing five starters to injury that forced the Broncos to turn to young untested players, the 2004 Boise State team found a way to accomplish a number of things most

thought were out of its reach. The Broncos picked up their first-ever win over a Pac-10 team, climbed as high as No. 10 in both major polls while peaking at No. 7 in the BCS standings, and finished the regular season undefeated for the first time as a four-year school. It all started with 65-7 manhandling of rival Idaho, the largest margin of victory in the history of the rivalry. Boise State racked up 572 yards, while limiting Idaho to 212, 71 of which came on one play with 1:20 left in the game. Along the way it included a win over Oregon State (the first ever over a Pac-10 team), thrilling last-second wins against BYU, Tulsa and San Jose State, and the Broncos’ third straight undefeated WAC season The Broncos accomplished nearly every goal they set for the season – an undefeated regular season record, a third straight WAC title, a WAC-record 26 straight league wins and 22 straight overall wins before a heartbreaking 44-40 loss to Louisville in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. Nationally, the Broncos finally received the recognition they deserved during the three-season run in the top 25. Boise State got front page coverage in USA Today as well as feature articles in the Sporting News, Sports Illustrated, ESPN The Magazine and the New York Times, among others. Individual honors came as well. Daryn Colledge, Tyler Jones, and Jared Zabransky received All-America honors, with Jones being named a finalist for the prestigious Lou Groza Award honoring the nation’s top kicker. In all, 16 Broncos were named to the All-WAC team, with six separate Broncos – Colledge, Jones, T.J. Acree, Andy Avalos, Gabe Franklin and Korey Hall – earning first-team All-WAC honors.

The waters weren’t as smooth on the journey but the end result was just as nice. Unlike the previous two seasons, Boise State ran into some adversity during the 2005 season, but the Broncos battled through it and the result was a character-building fourth straight Western Athletic Conference championship – a run of championships that tied USC for the longest current streak in the country. Few teams in WAC history have been able to match the dominance that Boise State continued in 2005. Other than the BYU team that won nine straight titles in the late 1970s and early ‘80s, no WAC team except Boise State had managed to win four straight league titles. The Broncos continued their dominance with one of the youngest teams in college football. The Broncos started just four seniors, the fewest in the country. Boise State also had 23 freshmen or sophomores on the two-deep roster, including four freshmen who started at least one game. Three Broncos – Daryn Colledge, Alex Guerrero and Korey Hall – were named first-team All-WAC while four others – Lee Marks, Drisan James, Andrew Browning and Marty Tadman – earned second-team honors. Freshmen Ryan Clady and Orlando Scandrick each were named to freshman All-America team, while punt returner Quinton Jones earned second-team All-America honors from the Sporting News and honorable mention All-America honors from SI.com. The season didn’t get off to the start the Broncos had hoped for with losses at Georgia and Oregon State. The Broncos rallied, winning their next seven games, including an impressive 49-14 win over WAC co-champion Nevada. Boise State also had impressive wins over Bowling Green, San Jose State, Utah State and New Mexico State in that stretch, with a thrilling win over Hawai’i and a win over Portland State to run its record to 7-2. After a loss at Fresno State snapped Boise State’s conference record winning streak at 31 games, the Broncos bounced back with wins against archrival Idaho (the seventh straight over the Vandals) and Louisiana Tech to claim the school’s fourth-straight WAC crown and sixth conference title in seven years. A heart-breaking 27-21 loss to Boston College in the MPC Computers Bowl ended a season that showed the character and resolve of the 2005 WAC champions. Trailing the Eagles 27-0 late in the fourth quarter, the Broncos stormed back, only to lose when they had a pass intercepted in the end zone with just over a minute to play. Much like the 2005 season as a whole, the bowl game showed Boise State’s will to win and character to overcome early adversity.

With apologies to the 1980 season and the three-year run from 2002-2004 when Boise State compiled a 36-3 record and won three straight Western Athletic Conference championships without losing a league game, there is no doubt that the 2006 season was the greatest in school history. The Broncos capped a perfect 13-0 season with a 43-42 overtime win over national-power Oklahoma in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, which will go down in history as one of the greatest college football games ever played. “Circus” – the hook and lateral play from Jared Zabransky to Drisan James to Jerard Rabb for the tying touchdown with seconds to play – and “Statue Left” – the Statue of Liberty play that saw Zabransky stick the ball behind his back with Ian Johnson grabbing it and racing to the end zone for the gamewinning 2-point conversion – will forever be etched in the memories of Bronco fans. As will Vinny Perretta’s tailback option touchdown pass to Derek Schouman after quarterback Zabransky went in motion on fourth-and-two in overtime that set up “Statue Left.” The New York Times called it “…a dizzying, riveting, back-and-forth game that will be remembered as one of the most exciting in college football history,” while Pat Forde of ESPN.com said “…beyond the big picture was the delicious, utterly improbable manner in which the Broncos did it. And true genius. No coaching staff has ever ended a game with so much daring.” Individually the season was much more than one win that resulted in Boise State finishing the season a school-best fifth in the Associated Press Top 25 and sixth in the USA Today coaches poll. Head coach Chris Petersen earned the “Bear” Bryant National Coach of the Year Award while Ian Johnson earned first-team All-America recognition from SI.com and CBSSportsline.com, second-team All-America honors from the Sporting News and third-team All-America accolades from the Associated Press. Ryan Clady was named second-team All-America pick by SI.com. Linebacker Korey Hall earned WAC Defensive Player of the Year honors, leading 12 players who were named either firstor second-team All-WAC. On defense joining Hall as a first-team selection was defensive tackle Andrew Browning. Safety Marty Tadman earned second-team recognition along with linebacker Colt Brooks. On offense Johnson, who led the nation in touchdowns and scoring and finished second in rushing, and Clady claimed first-team honors along with wide receiver Legedu Naanee and tight end Derek Schouman. Offensive guard Jeff Cavender was a second-team all-league choice while on special teams kicker Anthony Montgomery was a first-team All-WAC pick and punter Kyle Stringer was a second-teamer.

Bronco Championship Teams

The 2008 Boise State football season started in a way that was very unfamiliar to Bronco Nation. For the first time in six seasons the Broncos were not the defending Western Athletic Conference Champions, and their journey to regaining the conference title would come on the arm of a freshman quarterback and the support of an inexperienced offensive line. Skeptics were quickly turned to believers once again, however, as the Broncos rolled to a perfect 12-0 regular season record, 8-0 in the WAC, en route to their sixth conference championship in seven seasons. Along the way Boise State made history, first with Kellen Moore who became the only freshman quarterback in school history to start a season opener. Just weeks later the Broncos earned their first ever road win against a Pac-10/BCS conference school with an exciting 37-32 win at the University of Oregon. Their big win over the Ducks put the Broncos into the national rankings at No. 19, just four weeks into the season. Boise State would climb as high as No. 9 in the Associated Press Top-25 and would maintain that spot for five consecutive polls. After their only stumble of the season, a 17-16 loss to No. 13 TCU in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, the Broncos finished the regular season ranked No. 11 in both the BCS and the AP Polls. One of the keys to Boise State’s success in the national rankings was the team’s offensive firepower in the second half of the season. After a few weeks of adjusting to a new signal caller, the offense really began to roll. In the final five games of the regular season Boise State averaged 49 points per game, including a 61-point effort against Fresno State to finish the season. But despite all of the excitement on offense, the real story of the year was the dominating Bronco defense that 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), which was the fourth fewest point per game average for a season in school history. It was no surprise then, that the Broncos would earn 12 conference awards at the end of the year, including Head Coach Chris Petersen’s first-ever WAC Coach of the Year honor. Petersen was also named a finalist for the Bear Bryant National Coach of the Year award. He was joined by wide receiver Jeremy Childs, cornerback Kyle Wilson, offensive lineman Andrew Woodruff, defensive end Ryan Winterswyk and linebacker Ellis Powers, who were all named First Team All-WAC. Boise State also received Second Team All-WAC honors for six different players; Wilson (as a specialist), Moore, wide receiver Austin Pettis, running back Ian Johnson, defensive end Mike T. Williams and safety Jeron Johnson.

Bronco Championship Teams

The Boise State football team kicked-off the 2009 season with lofty expectations, as the Broncos looked to defend their Western Athletic Conference championship and improve upon a near perfect season in 2008. Led by a talented bunch of experienced young players, Boise State managed to surpass all of the preseason hype en route to another historic season. The Broncos opened the season ranked No. 14, which marked the highest preseason ranking ever for Boise State. It didn’t take long for the Broncos to prove they were worthy of the early season praise either, as they put together an impressive 13-0 regular season record with an 8-0 record against WAC opponents. Boise State capped its incredible year with a 17-10 win over No. 4 TCU in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, which marked the second Fiesta Bowl victory for the Broncos in four years. Boise State used an impressive 19-8 win over No. 16 Oregon in the Broncos’ highly anticipated season opener to catapult them through the next 12 weeks of the season. Boise State would roll through its regular season schedule with only one game being played within single digit scoring (Tulsa, 28-21). Their dominating play led the Broncos to historic levels in both the AP and USA Today Coaches Polls. Boise State’s quick rise up the national rankings first made history on Sept. 20 as the Broncos achieved the highest regular season ranking (No. 8) in program history. Boise State managed to break the record again just one week later as the Broncos moved up to No. 5 nationally. Following the Fiesta Bowl victory, Boise State reached its highest ever national ranking at No. 4 in both the AP and Coaches polls. The Broncos enjoyed another season of high powered offense that led the nation in scoring at 42.2 points per game. Boise State topped the 40-point mark 10 different times throughout the season, including four games scoring over 50 points. The Broncos maintained a balanced offensive attack that boasted the No. 26 rushing offense (186.07 yards per game) and No. 29 passing offense (264.14 ypg) in the nation. As a unit Boise State finished 2009 ranked 10th in total offense (450.21 ypg). Defensively the Broncos were equally as dominant, holding opponents to just 17.1 points per game throughout the season. Boise State boasted the No. 14 defense in the country having allowed just 300.21 yards per game on the year. Similar to the Bronco offense, Boise State was balanced on defense with the No. 21 pass defense (179.86 ypg) and No. 28 rush defense (120.36 ypg) in the nation. Following their dominating performance in conference play the Broncos received 11 All-WAC honors, including a pair of high individual honors by head coach Chris Petersen and sophomore quarterback Kellen Moore. Petersen received his second WAC Coach of the Year award, while Moore was voted WAC Offensive Player of the Year for the first time in his career. Moore was joined by five other players in receiving first-team All-WAC honors. On offense, junior wide receivers Austin Pettis and Titus Young, and sophomore offensive lineman Nate Potter were named first-team all-conference honorees. On defense, junior defensive end Ryan Winterswyk and senior cornerback Kyle Wilson also earned first-team honors. Young also was voted first-team All-WAC as a specialist. Boise State filled four spots on the All-WAC second team, as junior running back Jeremy Avery, sophomore defensive tackle Billy Winn, junior linebacker Winston Venable and junior safety Jeron Johnson received second-team nominations.

Bronco Championship Teams

Boise State football added another chapter to its storied history in 2010. Armed with the highest preseason ranking in program history, 21 starters returned from an undefeated 2009 season and 2010 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl title with their sights set on greatness. A third-consecutive Western Athletic Conference Championship and a 26-3 victory over No. 19 Utah in MAACO Bowl Las Vegas capped a magical season in which the Broncos achieved a level of success reached by few of their predecessors, collectively and individually. The Broncos dominated on both sides of the ball, finishing second-nationally in both total offense (521.31) and total defense (254.69), the only team in the country to rank in the top five in each statistical category. Offensively, Boise State also finished second-nationally in scoring offense (45.08) and pass efficiency (179.94), third-nationally in sacks allowed (0.62) and sixth-nationally in passing offense (321.08). Defensively, the Broncos also finished second-nationally in scoring defense (12.77), led the nation in sacks (3.69), ranked second in the country in both tackles-for-loss (8.38) and pass efficiency defense (95.19), fourth-nationally in pass defense (150.92) and seventh-nationally in rushing defense (103.77). Redshirt junior quarterback Kellen Moore became the first Boise State player to be invited to the Heisman Trophy ceremony. The first Heisman finalist in school history finished fourth after leading the nation in passing efficiency (182.63). Moore was also a finalist for the Maxwell and Davey O’Brien Awards, earned All-America honors from the Football Writers Association of America, was named WAC Co-Offensive Player of the Year. Moore ascended to the top of the Boise State record books in nearly every career passing statistic. At the end of year he held the No. 1 spot in career total offense, passing yards, passing touchdowns, pass completions and passing attempts. Moore’s prolific passing numbers have been aided by a host of quality receivers. Seniors Austin Pettis and Titus Young etched their names in Boise State history throughout the season as well. Pettis spent the season extending his school record for receiving touchdowns, while also reaching the top of the all-time list in receptions. Young flew past defenses for his second-consecutive 1,000-yard receiving season, to make him the career leader in receiving yards. Moore, Pettis and Young were each repeat All-WAC First Team selections, as well as junior left tackle Nate Potter. Redshirt junior center Thomas Byrd also earned a nod to the first team. Redshirt junior running back Doug Martin muscled his way to more than 1,000 yards on the ground during the regular season, becoming the 16th Bronco rusher to reach the milestone. Martin also garnered a spot on the All-WAC First Team, finishing with 1,260 yards, the sixth-highest total in school history. With once season left on his already stellar career, Martin had already cracked the career rushing top 10. The Boise State defense was once again led by Ryan Winterswyk at defensive end. Winterswyk, a redshirt senior, was named first-team All-WAC for the third-consecutive season. Also named to the conference’s top team from the Boise State defensive line was junior defensive end Shea McClellin. The Broncos’ dominant defensive backfield was well-represented on the all-conference team, as safeties George Iloka (junior), Jeron Johnson (redshirt senior) and and nickel Winston Venable (senior), all garnered their first All-WAC First Team honors. Junior linebacker Byron Hout, redshirt senior cornerback Brandyn Thompson and redshirt junior defensive end Billy Winn each earned second-team All-WAC consideration. The Broncos to a 12-1 record and claimed Boise State’s eighth WAC title in 10 seasons in the league. Boise State closed its 10-year membership in the WAC with a 75-5 overall record, including a 40-0 mark at home.

Hall of Fame Broncos

Wilcox, Trautman Earn Football’s Ultimate Honor Former Bronco greats Dave Wilcox and Randy Trautman have more in common than their places in Boise State football lore and their inductions in the university’s Athletic Hall of Fame. The two have also achieved their sport’s ultimate honor. The former All-Americans played in different eras for Boise State, but they will be forever linked by their accomplishments on the field and their respective enshrinement in football’s two halls of fame. Wilcox, a two-way lineman for Boise Junior College in 1960 and ’61, finished his collegiate career at Oregon and went on to become one of the top linebackers in NFL history, earning Pro Bowl honors seven times during his 11 years with the San Francisco 49ers. Wilcox retired from football in 1975, and in 2000 he was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Trautman, a defensive tackle for the Broncos from 1978-81 and Boise State’s most honored football player, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1999.

Wilcox: Lyle Smith’s Most Outstanding Player

Legendary BJC coach Lyle Smith called Wilcox the most outstanding player he coached during his 20 years at the Bronco helm, which is quite a compliment considering that Smith’s program produced 21 JC AllAmericans during his coaching tenure. “He never had a second gear; he was in high gear all the way,” said Smith of Wilcox. “He just went real hard at practice and in the games. I was not surprised that he did so well as a professional.” A native of Vale, Ore., Wilcox was a twotime junior college AllAmerican on teams that finished 8-2 and 9-1 under Smith. “I had more fun in Boise than anywhere else as far as playing football,” said Wilcox, who also was a recordsetting member of the BJC track team in the shot put and discus. “We had some outstanding players and excellent teams. Coach Smith is an outstanding person. He touched a lot of lives.” Wilcox will be inducted into the 49ers Hall of Fame in October of 2009, and in 1982 was inducted into Boise State’s Athletic Hall of Fame.

Trautman: Key Member of 1980 National Championship Team

A native of Caldwell, Trautman was the first player from the state of Idaho to be named to the College Football Hall of Fame. He is the only Bronco football player to receive four first-team All-America awards af ter being named to both the Kodak and Associated Press Division I-AA All-America squads his junior and senior seasons. A defensive stalwart on Boise State’s 1980 NCAA Division I-AA national championship team, Trautman also received first-team AllBig Sky Conference honors that year and in 1981. “That [national championship] ring brought us together like a marriage,” said Trautman of the 1980 Broncos. “We sweated, we bled, we beat on each other, and we went through it all together. We tasted something together very few have tasted.” Trautman finished his career at Boise State with 266 total tackles, including 29 for losses. He was selected in the ninth round of the NFL draft by the Washington Redskins and played for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League from 1982-85. He was inducted into Boise State’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 1990.

Fierce Competitors

Both Wilcox and Trautman were known as fierce competitors who relished the challenge of playing football at the highest levels. Now that Wilcox is among pro football’s elite, feigned humility seems unnecessary. “You have to know you’re good if you’re playing in the NFL,” he said. “When you go up against guys like [offensive linemen] Bob Brown, Forrest Gregg, Ron Yary and Tom Mack; tight ends like John Mackey, Mike Ditka and Ron Kramer; and then have to chase down runners like Gale Sayers for 11 seasons, you can’t be lacking in confidence in your ability.” Trautman was known for sometimes being testy during his playing days with Boise State, but it was a result, he says, of his burning desire to succeed. “I’ve always been competitive in everything I do,” he said. “I know I wasn’t easy to get along with. We came to win, and if you’re not playing to win, then you’re in the wrong program. … If people thought I was [trying to be] intimidating, it wasn’t that. I just wanted to see their enthusiasm and their goals directed to winning.” Their careers at Boise State were 20 years apart, but hall of famers Dave Wilcox and Randy Trautman have plenty in common besides their membership among football’s best.

Bronco Stadium & Lyle Smith Field Bronco Stadium and Lyle Smith (right) Field is the home of Boise State University football and the annual Udrove Humanitarian Bowl. Smith is the undisputed “father” of Bronco football, who from 1946 through 1967 built one of the top junior college programs in the country. When he retired from his head coaching position to become the athletic director, Smith had a record of 156-6-6 (84.6%). Prior to the 2008 season, the stadium received its third major expansion with the completion of the Stueckle Sky Center. The four-level, $35.9 million facility includes loge, club and luxary suite seating, along with a state-of-the-art press box. An additional 1,500 south end zone seats were added in 2009 to bring the current capacity to 33,500. The second major expansion of the stadium came in 1997 when capacity was increased to 30,000 when additional seating in the southwest and southeast corners, construction of the Allen Noble Hall of Fame Gallery and completion of the Larry and Marianne Williams Plaza was completed at a cost of $10 million. Originally constructed with 14,500 seats at a cost of $2.2 million in 1970, Bronco Stadium was first expanded to 20,000 in 1974 when the east side upper deck was added. Portable end zone seating brought the capacity of Bronco Stadium to 22,600 through the 1996 season. Bronco Stadium is also home to the only blue field in the United States. Blue “Field Turf” was installed once again during the summer of 2010, making it the fifth blue field at the stadium. Boise State established a first in 1986 by installing the first blue AstroTurf field. The second blue AstroTurf field was installed in 1995, with the third prior to the 2002 season. The first Blue Fieldturf surface was installed in 2008. A second Blue FieldTurf field was installed prior to the 2010 season. Boise State’s was the first collegiate stadium to have the entire field produced in a special color. There were two previous green AstroTurf fields installed prior to 1986. The first was during the original construction of the current stadium in 1970, with the second installed prior to the 1978 season.

GENE BLEYMAIER, Boise State Director of Athletics

Boise State’s Department of Athletics continues to scale impressive and unprecedented heights with the leadership of Director of Athletics Gene Bleymaier. The accomplishments of its student-athletes, the success of its teams, the growth of its facilities and the support of the community has advanced the status of Bronco athletics among the nation’s premier intercollegiate programs. Now in his 31st year at Boise State, Bleymaier joined the Athletic Department in 1981 and became the Broncos’ Director of Athletics in February of 1982. He is the second-longest tenured athletic director in the Football Bowl Subdivision. On July 1, 2011, Boise State became a member of the Mountain West Conference, the school’s fourth different conference since Bleymaier has been directing the program. When Bleymaier became the athletic director, Boise State was a member of the Big Sky Conference. In 1996 the Broncos joined the Big West Conference before moving to the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) in 2001. As a member of the WAC for the past 10 years, Boise State has dominated the league winning the Commissioner’s Cup three times (2005-06, 2009-10 & 2010-11), while finishing second twice (2006-07 and 200708). The Commissioner’s Cup is awarded to the league school that performs the best in each of the conference’s 18 men’s and women’s championships, and Boise State is the only school to win it three times since its inception in 2002. During its time as a member of the WAC Boise State won 32 league championships, including eight football titles. Breaking down the rest of the league titles, the Broncos won five each in gymnastics and men’s indoor track and field, four in men’s tennis, two each in women’s swimming and diving, men’s outdoor track and field and women’s basketball, and one each in men’s cross country, women’s soccer, women’s tennis and men’s basketball. Throw in five Pacific-10 Conference Championships by the Bronco wrestling team and the total grows to 37. Along with excelling at the conference level, Boise State has done the same at the national level posting 33 top-25 finishes in

nine different sports. Seven times football, wrestling and gymnastics have completed their season ranked in the top 25, with the football team posting the highest finish when it ended the 2009 season ranked fourth by the media and coaches. In the Learfield Sports Director’s Cup, which is the national all-sports trophy, Boise State has finished among the top 100 Division I schools the past nine years. The Broncos had their best finish during the 2008-09 season, placing 49th among the 271 schools who scored points that year. Behind the team’s successes have been the outstanding coaches and student-athletes in the Bronco programs. In the past 10 years Bronco coaches have earned 31 Coach of the Year Awards, with head football coach Chris Petersen three times being recognized as the national coach of the year in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Four times Boise State student-athletes won national championships, while earning a total of 68 All-America honors and 35 league athlete of the year awards over the past decade. Under Bleymaier’s guidance, Boise State’s football program has grown spectacularly and gained national attention since it joined the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision in 1996. The Broncos are the winningest football program among FBS programs since 1997 with an overall record of 143-32 (.819). Boise State also has the best record for conference games since 2000 at 80-5 (.941), the best home record at 69-2 (.972), and is the highestscoring team in the country since 2000, averaging 41.7 points per game. The Broncos also continue to excel in the classroom under Bleymaier’s leadership. In the most recent academic performance rates (APR) announced by the NCAA in May of 2011, Boise State had the top scores among WAC schools in football and men’s basketball, while ranking second in seven other sports. Boise State has led the WAC football schools in APR for five-straight years, and this year the NCAA honored the Bronco football team with an APR public recognition award for posting multi-year APR scores in the top 10 percent for Division I schools. Among the 70 teams that competed in postseason bowl games last season, Boise State had the second-highest rating based on the Higher Ed Watch’s Academic Report. During his tenure at Boise State, Bleymaier has been recognized extensively for his leadership. In 2009 he was one of five nominees for the Street and Smith’s Sports Business Journal and Sports Business Daily Athletic Director of the Year, and the only nominee from a non-automatic qualifying Bowl Championship Series conference school. In June 2008 Bleymaier received the Astro Turf Athletic Director of the Year Award. Bleymaier led the effort to create the Humanitarian Bowl – now called the Udrove Humanitarian Bowl – and he continues to serve on the board of directors for the annual postseason football game. He has served a four-year term on the NCAA Division I

179

Management Council and is a past president and vice president of the NCAA I-AA Athletic Directors’ Association. In 1986 Bleymaier was responsible for the installation of the artificial blue turf in Bronco Stadium, which has become one of the most recognizable sports venues in America and the city of Boise’s most famous landmark. Boise State sponsors 19 intercollegiate sports – eight for men and 11 for women. All teams will compete in the Mountain West Conference with the exception of wrestling, which will continue to compete in the Pac10, and gymnastics which competes as an independent. In the fall of 2011, Boise State is expected to break ground at Dona Larsen Park for a new outdoor track and field and softball facility. Moving Ed Jacoby Track to just northeast of the main campus at the former East Junior High School site is the first phase in the department’s plan for a new football complex at the north end of Bronco Stadium, and further expansion of the seating capacity at the stadium. Boise State’s newest facility opened in July of 2011 with the completion of the Arguinchona Basketball Complex. The 10,000-square-foot facility features two separate floors for the men’s and women’s basketball teams, and includes locker rooms, a theater-style film room, lounges and study areas. The most expensive capital project to date opened in August of 2008 with the $36 million Stueckle Sky Center. The four-level building is located on the west side of Bronco Stadium and includes a state-of-the-art press box, suites, loge boxes, club seats and a ballroom. More recent additions include the CavenWilliams Sports Complex, a $9.5 million indoor practice facility that includes a full size football field and the Keith and Catherine Stein Band Hall, and the Mountain Cove Softball Field. Other capital projects completed during Bleymaier’s tenure include the Boas Tennis/ Soccer Center, a 1997 expansion of Bronco Stadium, the Allen Noble Hall of Fame Gallery, the Williams Plaza, the Peterson-Preco Learning Center, the Appleton Outdoor Tennis Center, the Jackson Indoor Track, the Idaho Sports Medicine Institute, the Bronco Football Center, the gymnastics room expansion, the Simplot Center for Athletic Excellence, the Fedrizzi Fitness Center expansion and an expansion of the Nicholson-Yanke Center. Bleymaier served as an assistant athletic director at UCLA prior to coming to Boise State. A member of the California Bar Association and a graduate of the Loyola Law School, Bleymaier received his bachelor’s degree from UCLA. Bleymaier lettered in football and was named to the All-Pac 8 Conference Third Team as a tight end for the Bruins. He was the recipient of the UCLA Outstanding Senior Award and was active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Bleymaier graduated from Borah High School in Boise. Bleymaier and his wife Danell have four children – Maribeth, Joe, Claire and Tom.

Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson was the Mountain West Conference’s first employee when he was named Commissioner on Oct. 15, 1998. Ever since, Thompson has navigated the newest NCAA Division I conference through the ever-changing landscape of intercollegiate athletics. As the league enters its 13th season of competition in 2011-12, Thompson continues to create and improve the opportunities for Mountain West institutions and student-athletes to be successful both academically and athletically. Since the Mountain West opened its doors on January 4, 1999, Thompson has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MW has flourished under the guidance of Commissioner Thompson and continues to cultivate opportunities for student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship. He has been instrumental in negotiating nearly $230 million in television revenue and has been an innovator in the postseason bowl structure as MW teams have participated in five inaugural bowl games. Thompson also has positioned the Mountain West for the future with the additions of Boise State University on July 1, 2011 and California State University, Fresno and the University of Nevada, Reno on July 1, 2012. The University of Hawai`i will join the league as a football-only member beginning July 1, 2012. His leadership and vision have helped the conference enhance its television revenue and exposure through revolutionary agreements with CBS Sports Network and Comcast to become the first major collegiate athletic conference to launch a dedicated sports channel featuring exclusive programming around its athletic programs, as well as conference news. This vision has guaranteed greater levels of television exposure for all MW sports and has resoundingly met the fundamental goals of preferred start times, competition on select days of the week and enhanced revenue. In the summer of 2006, the centerpiece of this historic relationship was realized with the launch of The Mtn. – MountainWest Sports Network - the first sports network dedicated to serving a single collegiate athletic conference. The Mtn. is jointly owned by CBS Sports Network and Comcast and operated by Comcast SportsNet. Thompson has been instrumental in strengthening the position of the Mountain West in the current Bowl Championship Series (BCS) structure. In 2006, he spearheaded an effort that resulted in better access for the MW and more than doubled the annual BCS revenue on an annual basis for non-automatic-qualifying conferences. The MW has been steadfast in its efforts to find a way to make the BCS system fair for all universities. Through its first 12 years of competition, the Mountain West has participated in 46 bowl games. The MW claimed the 2010 Bowl Challenge Cup after sending five teams into postseason action and finishing with a 4-1 (.800) mark. It was the fourth time in seven years the MW posted the best win percentage among the 11 FBS conferences. The MW claimed the 2009 and 2007 Challenge Cups after finishing both seasons with a 4-1 (.800) records. The league earned its first Cup after registering a 2-1 mark in bowl competition during the 2004 season. The Mountain West is the only conference to win the Bowl Challenge Cup four times since the award’s inception in 2002. Prior to his current role, Thompson served as the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference for nearly eight years and as the only commissioner of the American South Conference prior to the merger of the two leagues in 1991. During his eight years at the Sun Belt, he spent the majority of his time addressing national trends and challenges in intercollegiate athletics, television exposure, issues relating to conference membership and promoting corporate involvement. In 1997-98, the Sun Belt instituted a comprehensive sportsmanship policy, which earned Thompson designation as a 1998 Sports Ethics Fellow by the Institute for International Sport. Under Thompson’s leadership, the Sun Belt was active in expansion as it continued to strengthen its posture nationally, adding Florida International University and the University of Denver. Thompson is an integral part of the national landscape in intercollegiate athletics, holding many prestigious NCAA posts. He is currently on the NCAA Football Board of Directors and a member of the BCS administration. Thompson also is a member of the College Football Officiating Board of Managers, LLC, and a consultant for the Task Force on Commercial Activity in Intercollegiate Athletics. He also has served on the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee (1995-2000) and

was appointed Chair of the committee in July 1999, completing his term September 1, 2000. Over the tenure of his career, Thompson has been a member of the Executive Committee and the Director’s Cup Committee of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), as well as the governing NCAA Council and various Council subcommittees. He has also played a prominent role in hosting numerous men’s and women’s NCAA postseason basketball tournaments in St. Louis, Atlanta, New Orleans and Denver. Prior to its merger with the Sun Belt, Thompson served as the first and only commissioner of the American South Conference, which boasted an NCAA national champion in women’s basketball during its first year. The American South also gained immediate national cable television exposure on ESPN and sent numerous teams into NCAA postseason play during the conference’s four-year history. Preceding his move to commissioner, Thompson served four years as the Director of Communications for the Metro Conference in Atlanta. While at the Metro, he directed the communications operations and administered conference championship events. Thompson originated the Metro Conference Sportswriters and Broadcasters Association, began a weekly radio program with over 300 affiliate stations, and originated a weekly satellite video program involving all Metro institutions. He also took on administrative duties such as coordination of officials, scheduling of tournament and regular-season play, and handling of legislative rules interpretations. Thompson graduated from the University of Minnesota with an undergraduate degree in journalism. Following graduation, he spent two years as assistant sports information director at Kansas State University, earning numerous CoSIDA publication awards. He then spent three years as director of public relations and promotions for the NBA’s Kansas City Kings. Thompson and his wife, Carla, have a son (Ted) and a daughter (Emma).

The Mountain West THIS IS THE MOUNTAIN WEST From its inception in 1999, the Mountain West has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MW continues to cultivate opportunities for student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship. Now in its 13th year, the MW has been assertive in its involvement with the NCAA governance structure and has taken a leadership role in the overall administration of intercollegiate athletics. The Mountain West has marked several achievements over its first 12 years of existence, most notably becoming the first to establish a sports television network dedicated solely to an intercollegiate athletic conference (The Mtn.). The Mountain West also was the first to experiment with the coaches’ challenge in the college football instant replay system, and was the first non-automatic-qualifying BCS conference to participate in four BCS bowl games, winning three. Additionally, the Mountain West was the first conference to have a member institution with No. 1 overall picks in both the NFL and NBA drafts in the same year (Utah’s Alex Smith and Andrew Bogut, respectively in 2005). With San Diego State’s Stephen Strasburg claiming the No. 1 pick in the 2009 MLB Draft, the Mountain West is one of two conferences to have the No. 1 selection in each of the NFL, NBA and MLB drafts since the MW was founded in 1999. In 2011-12, the Mountain West will be among the first conferences to implement a league-wide state-of-the art basketball instant replay system. The Mountain West is noted for its geographic diversity. Some of the most beautiful terrain and landscapes in the nation can be found within Mountain West boundaries, including the majestic Rocky Mountain range, which borders three MW institutions (Air Force, newest member Boise State and Colorado State). The high plains of Wyoming (elevation 7,220 feet – the highest Division I campus in the nation) contrast with the desert city of Las Vegas (the fastest growing metropolitan area in the West) and the Pacific Ocean locale of San Diego State. The southwestern flavor of New Mexico complements the western heritage and culture of Fort Worth, Texas, home of TCU. HISTORY The Mountain West was conceived on May 26, 1998, when the presidents of eight institutions — Air Force, BYU, Colorado State, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah and Wyoming — decided to form a new NCAA Division I-A intercollegiate athletic conference. The split from a former 16-team conference re-established continuity and stability among the membership within the new league and signaled the continuation of its traditionrich, long-standing athletic rivalries. Three of the MW’s eight original members have been conference rivals since the 1960s (New Mexico, Wyoming and Colorado State), while San Diego State (1978) and Air Force (1980) were longtime members as well. UNLV and TCU entered the fold in 1996 and the Rebels continued as one of the original eight institutions that formed the MW in 1999. TCU re-joined the group with its first year of competition in the Mountain West in 2005-06. Effective July 1, 2011, Boise State University became the newest member. California State University, Fresno and the University of Nevada, Reno will join the Mountain West effective July 1, 2012. Also on July 1, 2012, the University of Hawai‘i will become a football-only member of the Conference. When the Mountain West officially began operations on July 1, 1999, the new league had in

place a seven-year contract with ESPN, giving the broadcaster exclusive national television rights to MW football and men’s basketball, and threeyear agreements to send the league’s football champion to the Liberty Bowl and a second team to the Las Vegas Bowl. Commissioner Craig Thompson also arranged a third bowl tie-in each of the first three seasons (1999 Motor City, 2000 Silicon Valley, 2001 New Orleans) before securing a four-year deal with the Emerald Bowl in San Francisco in 2002. Entering the 2011 season, the MW has four contracted bowl affiliations – the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas, San Diego Country Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl and Gildan New Mexico Bowl. An innovator in the postseason bowl structure, the MW engineered many “firsts,” as league teams have participated in five inaugural bowl games (2000 Silicon Valley, 2001 New Orleans, 2002 San Francisco (Emerald), 2005 Poinsettia, 2006 New Mexico), as well as placing the first non-automatic-qualifying BCS team into a BCS bowl game with Utah’s appearance in the 2005 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. EXPOSURE The Mountain West continues to receive unprecedented national television exposure through a combination of telecasts on The Mtn., CBS Sports Network and VERSUS. In 2010-11, 47 football, 88 men’s basketball and 27 women’s basketball Conference-controlled contests were broadcast nationally. On August 26, 2004, CBS Sports Network (formerly CSTV and CBS C) and the Mountain West announced a visionary partnership that revolutionized the college sports landscape. The landmark agreement was the first NCAA Division I football and men’s basketball conference-wide deal for CSTV and provided the network exclusive rights to all Conference events, including cable and satellite television coverage, national overthe-air and satellite radio, video-on-demand and online broadcast rights. In the summer of 2006, the centerpiece of this historic relationship was realized with the launch of The Mtn. – MountainWest Sports Network, the first sports network dedicated to serving a single collegiate athletic conference. Nearly 32,000 hours of MW programming have aired on The Mtn. since the network’s launch on Sept. 1, 2006, and nearly 300 MW events are shown live annually through a combination of telecasts on The Mtn., CBS Sports Network and VERSUS. CBS Sports Network is currently in 43 million homes, and available in 95 million nationwide. VERSUS is in 75 million households across the U.S. OPPORTUNITY The Mountain West provides a first-class athletic and academic experience for more than 7,000 studentathletes each year. Over the past 12 years, 35 Mountain West studentathletes have earned NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships, and since the league’s inception in 1999, an additional 24 studentathletes have been named MW Scholar-Athlete of the Year and awarded leaguesponsored postgraduate scholarships. Three

student-athletes have earned distinction as Rhodes Scholars (Jessica Mellinger, Wyoming and Delavane Diaz and Brittany Morreale, Air Force). Conference student-athletes are also given a voice regarding pertinent issues within the MW and NCAA governance structure through representation on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). The Mountain West SAAC consists of 17 representatives; two studentathletes from each member institution and one faculty athletics representative. The committee reviews and reacts to legislation and to other topics referred by the Conference constituent groups or committees related to the studentathlete experience. ACHIEVEMENT The MW has produced 708 All-America selections among its 19 sponsored sports in the last 12 years, including a league-record 80 All-America honorees in 2010-11. A total of 118 MW student-athletes have also earned Academic All-America accolades in that span. The MW has sent at least 30 teams to NCAA postseason events each of the past 12 years. Mountain West teams have captured three NCAA team championships, with BYU claiming three national titles in women’s cross country. Additionally, the MW has produced 27 NCAA individual national champions in the sports of men’s golf, men’s cross country, and men’s and women’s indoor track & field and outdoor track & field. Mountain West members have participated in 46 bowl games under the league umbrella, including four appearances in BCS games. The MW has earned 55 postseason bids in men’s basketball, including 29 NCAA Tournament appearances and two NIT Final Four berths. MW women’s basketball has tallied 55 postseason slots, including 30 NCAA bids, five Sweet 16 appearances and one Elite Eight berth since 2000. Wyoming won the MW’s first WNIT championship in 2007 with a win over Wisconsin. In women’s volleyball, the MW has had 33 NCAA bids with eight Sweet 16 berths and one Elite Eight appearance. Women’s soccer has earned 25 NCAA bids since 1999, with BYU advancing to the Sweet 16 in 2000 and the Elite Eight in 2003. MW men’s golf has had at least four representatives in each of the last 12 NCAA Golf Regionals, while women’s tennis has had at least two teams participate in NCAA Regionals 10 of the last 11 years.
