Nine-Straight Bowl Games - 37-Straight Weeks in the Top 25 30-Straight Appearances in the BCS Standings


Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 in Review 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.

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.

A third-consecutive Western Athletic Conference Championship capped a magical season in which the 2010 Broncos achieved a level of success reached by few of their predecessors, collectively and individually. Boise State boasted a conference-leading 11 first-team allWAC honorees to match its 11 wins. Leading the way was redshirt junior quarterback Kellen Moore who picked up co-Offensive Player of the Year honors.

The Boise State defense was once again led by Ryan Winterswyk at defensive end. Winterswyk, a redshirt senior, was named first-team AllWAC 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 wellrepresented on the all-conference team, safeties George Iloka (junior), Jeron Johnson (redshirt senior) and Winston Venable (senior), all garnered their first All-WAC First Team honors.

Moore finished the regular season ranked second in the country in passing efficiency, throwing 33 touchdowns and just five interceptions. The Prosser, Wash., native was also named 2009 WAC Offensive Player of the Year.

Junior linebacker Byron Hout, redshirt senior cornerback Brandyn Thompson and redshirt junior defensive end Billy Winn earned second-team All-WAC consideration.

Moore was a finalist for a host of national awards, including the Heisman Trophy, the Davey O’Brien Award and the Maxwell Award. He finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting, the highest place by a Bronco.

The individual honors were bestowed on a group that led the Broncos to an 11-1 regular season record and claimed Boise State’s eighth WAC title in the last nine seasons.

While earning all of the attention and accolades, Moore ascended to the top of the Boise State record books in nearly every career passing statistic. By the end of the regular season he held the No. 1 spot in career passing yards, passing touchdowns, pass completions and 200yard passing games.

The Broncos wasted no time setting the stage for a season of unparalleled excitement with a highly-touted matchup against No. 10 Virginia Tech, Sept. 6, at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. The marquee game of college football’s opening weekend did not disappoint.

Moore’s prolific passing numbers have been aided by a host of quality receivers, including arguably the top two in school history. Seniors Austin Pettis and Titus Young etched their names in Boise State history throughout the season as well. Pettis spent the regular 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 all repeat All-WAC First Team selections, as well as junior left tackle Nate Potter. Redshirt junior center Thomas

The Broncos recovered a fumble 15 seconds into the game, and redshirt senior kicker Kyle Brotzman gave Boise State its first points of the season on a 44-yard field goal. When the Hokies’ next drive stalled, Pettis blocked the ensuing punt to give the Broncos great field position. Boise State converted for a touchdown two plays later—a 12yard pass from Moore to Pettis. Another first-quarter touchdown gave the Broncos a 17-0 lead, but Virginia Tech did not go away. The next Boise State score, another Brotzman field goal, was sandwiched by a pair of Hokie touchdowns. By halftime the lead was trimmed to six, 20-14. Neither side budged in the first half until Virginia Tech forced a fumble deep in the Broncos’ territory. Seven plays later Ryan Williams had his third touchdown of the day and Virginia Tech led 21-20. With the Hokies holding their first lead of the game and momentum on their side, the defense looked to force Boise State three-and-out and take control. On a crucial third-and-one, Boise State senior running back D.J. Harper scampered for a 71-yard score and the Broncos were back on top, 26-21 after a failed PAT. The back-and-forth affair continued when Virginia Tech capitalized on a running into the kicker penalty. The infraction nullified a missed 51yard field goal, and on the next play the Hokies converted the fourth down for a 28-yard touchdown. A missed two-point conversion left the Broncos trailing by just one, 27-26. Virginia Tech tacked on a field goal to push the lead to four. The mar-

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 in Review gin remained the same when the Bronco defense held with just under two minutes to play. A 25-yard punt return by junior Mitch Burroughs set up the Boise State offense with 56 yards to the end zone and 1:47 to get there. It was plenty for Moore. The signal caller engineered a five-play, 45-second drive culminating in a 13-yard touchdown strike to Pettis. A sack and three incomplete passes by Virginia Tech later, all Moore had to do was take one knee down and the win was sealed. As the clock ticked down to zero, the Broncos validated their place among college football’s elite. Looking to avoid a letdown, Boise State ventured to Laramie, Wyo., to take on Wyoming. Moore threw for 370 yards and two touchdowns, Boise State’s defense forced three turnovers and the third-ranked Broncos posted a 51-6 victory against the Cowboys. Martin added a rushing touchdown and McClellin pounced on a fumble for a defensive touchdown.

The Broncos came home for their first game at Bronco Stadium of the season, and they brought a lot of attention with them. ESPN aired its morning show, College GameDay, live from the blue turf for the first time as the nation anticipated the Broncos’ matchup with No. 24 Oregon State. The game was also shown nationally on ABC, the first time the Broncos appeared nationally on broadcast television for a Saturday, regular season game. Moore completed 19 of 27 passes for 288 yards and three touchdowns. Two of Moore’s scoring throws came in the second quarter as the Broncos seized control of the game before halftime. Tied at seven after one quarter, Boise State outscored the Beavers 17-3 in the second to lead 24-10 at the break. Oregon State cut the lead to seven twice in the second half, but Boise State found a way to respond and Martin carried the load in the fourth quarter to put the game away. He rushed for 55 of his 138 yards on a seven-minute drive ending in a field goal to put the Broncos ahead by 13 with just over two minutes remaining. Boise State stopped the Beavers on their final drive and won 37-24 for the Broncos’ third-straight win against a Pacific-10 Conference school, and second top-25 win of the season. After posting a shutout in the WAC opener at New Mexico State, the Broncos closed their non-conference slate against Toledo. With Alabama losing earlier in the day, Boise State started the game with the nation’s longest winning streak. The Broncos scored on five of their first seven possessions to erase any doubt about that streak being extended. Senior running back Jeremy Avery ran for three touchdowns, Moore passed for three more, the Boise State defense forced five turnovers and the Broncos rolled to a 57-14 victory against the Rockets. Boise State traveled to San Jose State as conference play got into full swing. The Broncos arrived having not given up a point to a WAC foe— they left with the same honor. Moore and Martin powered an offense that racked up 537 yards, while the Spartans mustered just 80. Moore completed 14 of 16 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns. Martin added 68 yards and two more scores on the ground. After jumping out to a 41-0 halftime advantage, the Broncos went on to win 48-0. The emphatic win moved Boise State to No. 2 in the polls, the highest ranking in school history, ahead of a Tuesday night game against Louisiana Tech. The Broncos won 49-20 as Moore did it all against the Bulldogs. He threw for two touchdowns, caught another and unleashed a 54-yard punt. Martin added a then-career high 150 yards on the ground and a pair of scores. While pundits seeking for holes in the Boise State arsenal pointed to the 157 yards give up to Louisiana Tech’s running back, the next team the Broncos entertained on the Blue presented a different challenge. Hawai’i came to Boise with the nation’s leading passer, Bryant Moniz.

The Bronco defense was up for the challenge, holding Moniz to just 127 yards passing. Moore also appeared to play with something to prove. After an incomplete pass to open the game he was dialed in, complet-

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 in Review ing his next 19 throws. Moore went on to complete 30 of 37 passes for a career-high 507 yards and three touchdowns—without throwing a pass in the fourth quarter. He guided a Boise State offense that collected a school-record 737 yards of total offense as the Broncos defeated the Warriors 42-7. After the victory, Boise State prepared on a short week to ready for instate rival Idaho. The Broncos returned from Moscow with their 12thstraight victory in the series. Redshirt sophomore wide receiver Chris Potter all but put the game away the first time Boise State touched the ball. Potter fielded a punt and shed three Vandal tacklers on his way to a 76-yard touchdown on the return. The Broncos put up 28 points in the first quarter, and allowed Idaho to gain just 14 yards. Boise State ran away with a 52-14 victory. Back at home, the Broncos welcomed Fresno State and its 35-pointper-game scoring average. After shaking off an uncharacteristic first quarter, Moore led the offense with 333 yards and four touchdowns. The defense was strong all night, shutting out the Bulldogs and holding them to 125 yards. It was the third shutout of the season, the first time since 1970 the Broncos blanked three opponents in one season. With 15 points on the night, redshirt senior kicker Kyle Brotzman became the school’s all-time leading scorer.

Not over was the season, and with its bowl fate yet to be determined, Boise State returned home to face Utah State in the final regular season game of the season. It also marked the final home game for 18 Bronco seniors. One of them, linebacker Darrel Acrey, made sure to make the most of it. Acrey intercepted the first play from scrimmage and returned it 31 yards for a touchdown. Moore took over from there, throwing three touchdowns and running for another as the Broncos built a 43-7 lead through three quarters. Senior quarterback Mike Coughlin also ran for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to cap the scoring and give Boise State a 50-14 win in its final conference game as a member of the WAC. Boise State closed its 10-year membership in the WAC with a 75-5 overall record, including a 40-0 mark at home. The win made the Broncos one of three conference champions in 2010, and earned them a trip to Las Vegas for MAACO Bowl Las Vegas XIX, Dec. 22, against No. 19 Utah.

The win set up a showdown at No. 19 Nevada. The Broncos ran out to a 24-7 lead at halftime, but the Wolf Pack slowly chipped away at the deficit with a pounding run game. Nevada put together long drives, controlling the ball for more than nine minutes in the third quarter and more than 12 minutes in the fourth quarter. Still the Broncos maintained control on the scoreboard. When the Wolf Pack tied the game with five minutes remaining, Boise State wasted no time responding. Martin took a pass from Moore and rumbled down the left side of the field. The normally bruising back ducked and weaved his way through traffic before dancing along the sideline to finish a 79yard touchdown on the first play of the drive. Nevada responded with a 79-yard drive of its own—this one spanning 14 plays and four and a half minutes. The Wolf Pack finished the drive with a game-tying seven-yard touchdown pass, leaving 13 seconds on the clock. Young returned the kickoff 22 yards to give the Broncos nine seconds and one last shot at ending the game in regulation to keep their 24-game winning streak alive. With the ball on his own 38-yard line, Moore dropped back to pass and uncorked a 53-yard bomb. Young glided past the last line of Nevada’s defense and on his final stride laid out to make a full-extension catch on the nine-yard line. Boise State used its final timeout to set up a potentially game-winning field goal. The kick sailed right and the Wolf Pack had new life. The deflated Broncos took the ball first and their drive stalled after one first down. This time the kick missed left, and Nevada had a chance to win the game on its first possession of overtime. The Boise State defense held Nevada to eight yards, but the Wolf Pack’s kick split the uprights, and the Broncos’ streak was over.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Head Coach Chris Petersen Chris Petersen Head Coach Overall Record: 60-5 Record at Boise State: Same

Success has come at extraordinary levels for Boise State head football coach Chris Petersen during his five years guiding the program. Under Petersen the Broncos have put together five consecutive 10 win seasons including two undefeated seasons, while winning four Western Athletic Conference Championships and two Tostitos Fiesta Bowls. Boise State concluded the 2010 regular season once again in dominating fashion, compiling an 11-1 overall record en route to capturing a share of the WAC title. After starting the season ranked No. 5 by both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches’ polls, Petersen saw his Broncos earn the highest national ranking in program history reaching No. 2 in both polls. Boise State also reached its highest ever BCS ranking at No. 3. Petersen led the Broncos into 2010 riding high on momentum following one of the greatest seasons in school history in 2009. Petersen, who has a career record of 60-5 for a .923 winning percentage, guided last year’s Boise State team to its fourth undefeated regular season in six years, its seventh WAC championship in eight seasons, and finished the season with a No. 4 ranking by the Associated Press. The Broncos capped the season by winning their second Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Championship in four years. Following the outstanding 2009 campaign Petersen was named Paul “Bear” Bryant National Coach of the Year, and WAC Coach of the Year for the second time. Petersen earned his first Bear Bryant National Coach of the Year award following his first year as an intercollegiate head coach in 2006. Boise State also went undefeated that year ending the season with another win at the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl (43-42 over Oklahoma). Petersen is the only person to win the Bear Bryant award twice. He was also a finalist in 2008. He won his first WAC Coach of the Year Award after guiding the 2008 Broncos to a 12-1 overall record, a league championship and an appearance in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.

In addition to the Bryant Award, Petersen was also named a finalist for the Liberty Mutual and Eddie Robinson awards in 2008. In his five seasons at Boise State, “Coach Pete” has clearly established himself as one of the top football coaches in the country, leading the Broncos to two BCS bowl games and a consistent presence in the national rankings each of those years. Under Petersen, Boise State has compiled an impressive 38-2 record in the WAC with a league championship in 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010, and a runner-up finish in ’07. Considered one of the most innovative offensive minds in the college coaching ranks, Petersen and his staff has guided an offense that continues to be among the nation’s best. Boise State boasted one of the nation’s top offenses in 2010 as the Broncos finished the regular season second nationally in scoring offense (46.67 ppg) and pass efficiency (182.48), fourth in total offense (519.50 ypg) and sacks allowed (.58), sixth in passing offense (319.42 ypg) and 24th in rushing offense (200.08 ypg). As the ninth head coach in the 40-year history of Boise State’s football participation at the four-year level, Petersen led the ’06 Broncos to their first undefeated season since 1958 (when the school was still a junior college), their first-ever BCS bowl berth, and their fifth straight WAC title. In the history of college football, only one coach since 1900 won 13 games in his first season at the helm of an FBS team. That coach was Petersen in 2006. In addition to winning the Bryant award that year, Petersen was a finalist for the ’06 Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year award, a semifinalist for the George Munger Coach of the Year award, and was named the Region 4 Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association. Prior to taking over the top coaching position at Boise State in 2006, Petersen was offensive coordinator for the Broncos from 2001-05. During his stint as offensive coordinator 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 top10 finishes – first in 2002, fourth in 2004, and seventh in 2003. The Broncos also had four top 20 finishes in passing during that

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Head Coach Chris Petersen 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. 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. Several players have excelled individually under Petersen in his five years as head coach; the most recent example is redshirt junior quarterback Kellen Moore. In three seasons at Bronco signal caller Moore has already rewrote the Boise State record books. Moore is currently the school’s all-time leader in career passing yards (10,528), pass completions (803), touchdown passes (97) and 200-yard passing games (33). Moore also enters the bowl game tied for first in career pass attempts (1,181) at Boise State. 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 regular season ranked second nationally in pass efficiency rating (185.0), completing 245-of-345 passes for 3,506 yards, 33 touchdowns with just five 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 (3) of any QB that has 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. He finished the 2008 season ranked 12th in the nation in passing efficiency and 24th in total offense.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Head Coach Chris Petersen and CBSSports.com. Senior cornerback Kyle Wilson earned second team All-American honors from the Walter Camp Football Foundation and the Associated Press. In his five seasons as offensive coordinator, Petersen had two players earn All-America honors – running back Brock Forsey in 2002 and offensive tackle Daryn Colledge in 2004. He also helped 12 Broncos earn first-team All-WAC honors, while two (Dinwiddie in 2003 and Forsey in 2002) were named WAC Offensive Player of the Year.

and Jeron Johnson were also named first-team all-conference. Players who earned second-team recognition were 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. After Dinwiddie left, Petersen helped groom Zabransky into one of the nation’s most successful quarterbacks from 200406. Zabransky led Boise State to three straight league titles, two undefeated regular seasons, and a 32-5 record in his three years as a starter, including a 23-1 record in WAC games. Offensive tackle Ryan Clady also excelled under Petersen. A consensus All-American in 2007, Clady decided to skip his senior year of college and make himself eligible for the 2008 NFL draft. In April he became the first Bronco ever selected in the first round, going to Denver as the 12th overall selection. In 2006, Petersen’s first season as head coach, Clady earned second-team All-America recognition from SI.com while Ian Johnson (first-team SI.com and CBS Sportline; second-team Sporting News; and third-team Associated Press) and linebacker Korey Hall (second-team Sporting News) also earned All-America honors that year. In 2009 two of Petersen’s players earned All-American honors. Moore was named first team All-American by ESPN.com, SI.com

Petersen came to Boise State as former head coach Dan Hawkins’ offensive coordinator following the 2000 season from the University of Oregon, where he was the wide receivers coach. He joined the Oregon staff in 1995 and immediately helped contribute to a passing attack that ranked among the nation’s elite each of the six seasons he was an assistant. Twice during Petersen’s tenure at Oregon, the Duck offense broke the school record for 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 1993-1994, helping the Vikings advance to the NCAA Division II playoffs both seasons. In 1992 Petersen was the quarterbacks coach at the University of Pittsburgh. That season the Panthers established a school record for passing yards and ranked eighth nationally in total offense and passing. In addition, he contributed to the development of first-team All-Big East Conference quarterback Alex Van Pelt, who eclipsed the school’s passing yardage totals previously held by Dan Marino. Petersen’s success as a coach can be linked to his record-setting career as a quarterback at the University of California, Davis. As a senior with the Aggies, he was named the Northern California Athletic Conference Player of the Year and was the top-rated Division II quarterback in the nation. Petersen received secondteam Kodak Division II All-America honors and still holds the Division II record for career pass completions at 69.6 percent. Petersen was inducted into the UC Davis Athletic Hall of Fame in 1993. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in psychology from UC Davis in 1988, Petersen started his coaching career at his alma mater, serving as UC Davis’ head freshman coach in 1987-88 and the receivers coach from 1989-91. Petersen holds a master’s degree in educational psychology from UC Davis. He and his wife, Barbara, are the parents of two sons, Jack (14) and Sam (11).

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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 Game-by-Game 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 Game-by-Game 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 Game-by-Game 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 41-yard 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

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 Game-by-Game 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 57-14 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

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 Game-by-Game 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

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 Game-by-Game 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 three-game 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 Game-by-Game 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 run-and-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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 Game-by-Game 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 Game-by-Game 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 recordsetting 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 Game-by-Game 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX 2010 Game-by-Game 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Bowl History 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 54yard 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Bowl History Broncos Win Second Straight 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Bowl History Broncos Complete Incredible Season with Victory 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.”

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Bowl History Broncos Cap Second Straight Nationally Ranked Season 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Bowl History Broncos Perfect Season Falls One Game Short 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Bowl History Second Half Rally Comes up Short 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Bowl History Boise State Shocks the Football World 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Bowl History Last Second Field Goal Hands Broncos Defeat 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Bowl History Broncos Fall Short in One-Point Loss 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.

Maaco Bowl Las Vegas XIX Bowl History Broncos Win Second Fiesta Bowl 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 30yard 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. WAC champion Boise State earned its second BCS victory - as many as Michigan, Penn State and Alabama have combined. 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. TCU’s 10-0 deficit in the second quarter was its biggest since it fell behind the Broncos 13-0 in the 2009 Poinsettia Bowl. 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.
