Boise D stands tall in 24-13 victory
After a rocky start to the game, the Broncos defense buckled down and prevented Colorado from entering the endzone until the game was pretty much in hand. The defense also got into the scoring with a pick six in the second quarter that ended up being the deciding factor in the 24-13 victory.
Quarterback Kellen Moore began his Heisman run, by completing 15/29 for 262 yards and 1 TD. Running back Jeremy Avery added 94 yards on the ground.
Next up for the Broncos is: Nevada
Boise picks up steam, drives to 2-0
The Boise State Broncos win their 2nd straight game of the season. After a sluggish start by Quarterback Kellen Moore (0-5, 2 ints in his first 5 passes), the Broncos started to pound the rock with senior running back Jeremy Avery. With the Wolfpack up 7-0, because of a pick six, Avery reeled off 4 straight runs of 7+ yards. This would put the offense in a position to tie the game up before the end of the 1st quarter. On a 3rd and 6, Kellen Moore drops back and hits Titus Young for a Touchdown. Young ended up spinning out of a tackle to score and the offense never looked back.
On the next offensive series of the game for the Broncos, Kellen Moore would throw a pinpoint strike to his tight end. This would become a theme the rest of the day. Moore would finish the afternoon with 4 Td passes. The Boise defense would stand tall again on this day, only giving up 17 points. Most of which came in the second half. Both Boise State running backs got into the action, and Boise ended up with over 200 yards rushing on the afternoon.
Next up for Boise is the game against Oregon. This will mark the first time the teams have played since the incident. Thank gosh Blount went to the NFL Draft. JK CA, I am looking forward to it.
Boise State somehow wins, despite brutal offensive showing
A day that never quit raining ended with a Bronco win. The only reason I won is because of the dropped passes by Oregon, and the big fumble in the Redzone. It was a crazy game though. Very exciting and my hat's off to CA, he did a helluva job as well. His defense was stout, holding me to less than 200 yards in total Offense. I'm actually surprised that Oregon's receivers dropped so many damn passes. As far as the Broncos go, I will say we didn't play like we know we can. Hopefully playing Idaho will help us get ready for the big conference game vs TCU. But as we all know we can't look past the Vandals.
Hopefully we can sniff that Number one for a week..
The #1 isn't all it's cracked up to be! lol
Boise wins Battle of Idaho, 21-0
The Broncos defense continues the season trend of "standing tall"
The Broncos come away with another victory after defeating the Vandals 21-0. It was another game in a driving rain storm, and another game where the Boise offense started off slow. Not much to say about this one. The pressure this season has been put on the Bronco defense, and the team motto of standing tall has become a true surprise to Coach Bob. Even though the offense has been slow, Quarterback Kellen Moore has been slowing moving up the Heisman watch list. With his 3 touchdown performance this week against Idaho, Moore has moved into a top 3 position on the famous list. Senior Wide Receiver Titus Young continues his string of games with consecutive touchdowns to three.
Next up for the Broncos, is a huge game in Fort Worth, Texas against the rival TCU Horned Frogs.
Boise overcomes giving up a lead to beat rival TCU in Double OT, 41-38
In a game that pitted two great teams going head to head, the Boise State Broncos come out on top in a double overtime thriller. Kellen Moore had pinpoint accuracy on the day, and lead Boise to a 21-7 lead at halftime. His accuracy is what lead Jeremy Avery to score two first half touchdowns.
Boise continued the early dominance by scoring a touchdown on an interception return. TCU QB Andy Dalton slighty threw behind his intended receiver and Cornerback Ebenezer Mackindie. This would put the Broncos up 28-7, which would become a nightmare. Being up 28-7, the Broncos got lazy in pass coverage and TCU ended up tieing the game up by the 2:00 mark of the fourth quarter. But Boise State was resilient, driving down to put them in prime position to kick a game winning FG.
Jeremy Avery fumbles with :14 seconds left the game. The game would head into overtime and both teams traded scores in the first OT. In the Second OT TCU would be held to a FG, after driving inside the 5. This would prove costly because Avery ended up redeeming his self by scoring the game winning Touchdown...
This was truly a classic game. Thanks to Tuco for playing so legit. Great game and I look forward to our battles every year!!!!!!
Boise holds Air Force to 0 yards rushing in a 31-14 victory
Colorado Springs, CO - The Boise State Broncos came into today's game a little nervous, just for the simple fact that Air Force introduced a new coach last week. With a vaunted option team, Air Force seemed poised for a big upset. But the Boise State defense would have none of it. Allow 0 yards rushing, having 6 sacks, 2 ints and a fumble recovery helped the Bronco defense stand tall once again. With the defense providing the punch, the offense was able to jump out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter. The lead would stand until a quick drive close to halftime by Air Force, cutting the lead to 10-7. Leaving only :50 seconds on the clock for the Boise offense.
But as has been the case this season, Kellen Moore was accurate and on point, driving Boise down the field to score with :10 seconds left in the half. 17-7. The Broncos continued to dominant the game, and jumped to a 31-7 and never looked back. When asked after the game, Coach Bob had this to say, "I am happy with our performance, our defense set the tone early and with our great players on offense we were able to keep the momentum all game." Air Force would add a last minute touchdown on a nice throw by their quarterback.
Great game NRG, and welcome to the league!
Thank you sir! May I have another!?!
Boise steamrolls past UNLV, 34-10
The Boise State Broncos went into Las Vegas knowing that the UNLV Rebels would be ready to play. With a strong first quarter the Rebels looked destined for a huge upset of the #3 (which I question) Broncos. After a 3-0 UNLV lead after the first quarter, Boise ended up scoring 27 unanswered points in the second quarter. Minus WR Titus Young due to a minor injury, Boise managed to score a touchdown in the air. WR Pettis ended up returning a punt for a score to help in the 27 point run. UNLV took a kick to paydirt, but that would be the only scoring for the Runnin Rebels.
Boise controlled much of the clock in the second half, and added another score through the air. Quarterback Kellen Moore improved on his touchdown to interception ratio this week, now moving to 14 Touchdowns and 4 interceptions on the season. Running back James Avery added to his season touchdown total this week with 2 more TDs.
Next up for the Broncos is the Utah Utes.
(Too bad it's not Frisky this week)
It's Ugly, but it's 8-0
Boise ends up winning 31-13, despite the offense
The Broncos moved to 8-0 on a sunny day in the state of Utah. But the offensive performance was putried as far as coach Bob was concerned. Quarterback Kellen Moore threw two interceptions, and Running back Jeremy Avery had a late fumble.
Coach Bob had this to say after the game, "We just didn't execute, we had less than 100 yards rushing for the first time the season, and the turnovers didn't hurt us today but we need to fix that for down the road."
Kellen Moore did throw for over 350 yards on the afternoon, and Sophomore Wr Chris Potter had a career day catching 6 passes for 146 yards and 2 TDs. With the constant outside pressure from the Utes, Kellen Moore ended up hurting his shoulder, but he played through the pain and truly showed why he is the leader of the Boise State team.
Despite the bad showing by the offense, the Bronco defense kept with the season motto of standing tall, only giving up a single opening drive touchdown. The defense continues to dominate the Mountain West teams, and the Broncos will be facing the Lobos from New Mexico next week.
Moore Struggles but Broncos D dominates Lobos, 35-12
On a day where Quarterback Kellen Moore played his worst game of the season, the Boise state defense ended up forcing 7 turnovers on the afternoon. Freshman Cornerback Makinde had 2 interceptions and a fumble recovery to lead the Broncos defensive effort.
On offense, Moore ended up throwing a ridiculous 4 interceptions (I have never seen linebackers jump like that). Injuries to both running backs in the game, forced Moore to throw a little more than the Boise State coaching staff wants.
Coach Bob Jr commented on the poor running game. "We have to get our running game going, or this season will be nothing. If we can't run the ball, we become one dimensional. And as you can tell this afternoon, one dimensional equals more turnovers."
The Broncos only gained 40 yards on the ground, and the offensive line didn't do a very good job of blocking. With the score 14-6 at halftime, Running back Jeremy Avery was injured with back spasms. Then with the score still 14-6, backup running back Martin was injured in the mid third quarter. Neither guy was productive before the injuries.
Boise went into the fourth quarter with a small lead, and the defense forced four interceptions in the quarter. The fans in Idaho where relieved when the game ended with the score of 35-12.
Boise State will now shift focus to a San Diego State team that is 5-2 and in third place in the Mountain West.
Broncos defense completely dominates, 49-0
The San Diego Aztecs where no match for the Boise State Broncos this afternoon. After scoring on the opening drive, Boise's defense completely focused in what many would regard as the best defensive performance of the year from the Broncos. The defense ended up forcing 7, yes 7, turnovers on the afternoon. 5 interceptions where thrown, including a 100 yard interception return that would put Boise up big. Kellen Moore continued to put his name in the papers with his 5th straight 300 yard game. Moore has now thrown 27 touchdowns on the season.
Now onto the game of the year in MWC...yea I said GAME OF THE YEAR!
BYU (10-0) vs Boise (10-0)...
cannot wait Jam!
Boise dominates BYU 35-17
The Boise State Broncos improved to 11-0 on the season after a 35-17 win. The defense forced 6 turnovers on the afternoon, and Boise ended up capitalizing right off the bat. After an opening kick return fumble by the Cougars, Boise pounded the ball in for a Jeremy Avery touchdown. Up 7-3 after the first quarter. The second quarter was completely dominated by the Broncos, who forced three interceptions in the quarter. Jeremy Avery had a huge first half scoring 4 touchdowns on runs of 2, 49, 3, and 3. Boise would be up 28-10 at the break.
The second half would be more of a defensive battle and the Broncos would end up forcing another interception in the third quarter. This pick would lead to zero points on the drive, because of a fumble by Avery. After the errant fumble, the Cougars would start on a long drive that result in a 16 yard score. This would cut the lead to 28-17, and Boise needed to step up big at this point. The Broncos took the ball with 2:05 left in the third, drove down the field and scored on a 31 TD catch by Titus Young. Making the score 35-17 with 5:40 left in the game. After that BYU tried to pass down the field but was intercepted for the 5th and final time. Boise would get in the victory formation and move to 11-0.
GG Jam, some tough breaks but it should have been closer man.
Boise beats Wyoming to finish undefeated
This season the Boise State Broncos have had some ups and downs throughout games. Lot's of games come to mind as being tough in the beginning and easier as it went. This game against the Wyoming Cowboys was extremely tough for three quarters, until the defense started forcing turnovers. In the first quarter, the Broncos couldn't get anything going and only scored 3 first quarter points. Wyoming would capitalize on a Kellen Moore interception, and they would lead after the first, 7-3.
The defense wouldn't allow another point, which helped kick start the offense. On an early play in the second quarter, the Cowboy QB threw an interception to redshirt freshman Makinde. Makinde took it to the house, and this would be his 6th interception on the season. At 10-7, Boise had to fight to keep the Cowboys from scoring. 10-7 would be your halftime score. The game would be a back and forth battle, and the Boise offense just could not get it going. Several turnovers would put the Wyoming offense in prime position for an upset, but mistakes would cost them. After a punt that pinned the Cowboy offense on the 3 yard line, QB Dax Crum was pounded in the end zone for a safety, making Boise's lead 12-7. A lead not safe. At the end of three, the Broncos held onto a 12-7.
To the fourth we go, and the Bronco magic finally came through. Only up by 5, Moore dropped back on a third and long early in the fourth quarter and hit WR Potter for a 28 yard touchdown. Making the score 19-7. Wyoming's offense wouldn't throw in the towel yet, and Boise's defense held them to a three and out. On the next drive, Moore would hit Potter again for a touchdown, and subsquently the Broncos put in the second teamers being up 25-7. (Yes my kicker missed the XP). After the Wyoming team drove to midfield, Boise stopped them on four straight possessions. Boise ended up winning the game 39-7, after two more turnovers by Wyoming.
Boise eliminates the preseason doubters
The Bronco nation should be proud. After an offseason that saw Boise drop to #9th in the nation, the Broncos came out with a vengeance against the Colorado Buffaloes. The Buffs just couldn't handle the potent offense of Boise State. Despite only scoring one touchdown in the first quarter, the Broncos moved up and down the field on a young Colorado defense. Quarterback Kellen Moore began his senior season by completing his first 10 passes of the season. His first touchdown pass was to Halfback DJ Harper on an 8 yard score at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter was much of the same for Boise, except for a horrible throw by Moore that resulted in a pick six for the Buffaloes. Moore ended up dropping back and getting hit as he threw, and the rushing LOLB snatched it out of the air for the 24 yard score. 10-7 Boise. Not to fear fans, Kellen Moore would lead our team down the field in the final seconds of the first half. He capped it off with an 8 yard rushing touchdown.
On to the third quarter we go, and the Broncos would score one more touchdown on a nice pass to starting tight end Gabe Linehan. The 1 yard score was Linehan's first career touchdown. Not much else happened in the third quarter, because the Colorado Buffaloes were shut out. Finally the game goes to the fourth quarter and this is where the action begins. With the score 24-7 Boise, the backups started to come into the game for the Broncos. True Freshman Jamar Fletcher made his Boise State debut against the first team defense of the Buffs. The 2nd team defense didn't fair very well against Colorado. Buff Quarterback Tyler Hanson ended up connecting on two touchdown drives to help make the score look better. In between those two scores, stud Bronco CB Jerrell Gavins returned a kickoff 101 yards. It was Gavins first return for a touchdown.
Boise struggles, but wins
Defense can't stop the SJSU passing, but Boise outscores the Spartans
Boise, Idaho - The Broncos came into today's game looking to take out revenge on the Spartans. After a huge loss to Oregon two weeks ago, Boise was poised to completely destory SJSU. That didn't happen. Whether it was poor coaching decisions, or poor execution the Broncos won the game 34-17, but Coach Bobjr wasn't happy after the game.
In the first quarter, the Broncos offense kick started the scoring by throwing a touchdown pass to FB Drew Wright on the opening possession. After that huge drive by the Broncos, the Spartans would march right down the field and tie it up at 7. The Broncos young safeties had no answer for the SJSU wideouts in this game, and Quarterback Matt Faulkner made some really great throws. The score at the end of the first was 7-7.
The Second quarter was truly a back and forth battle between two teams that are on polar opposites of the polls. SJSU really kept the Boise offense at bay for most of the second quarter, but with 1:44 left Kellen Moore completed a 30 yard touchdown to true freshman Stephen Holloway. This would be Stephen's first career touchdown. 13-7 Boise (missed xp). The Spartans continued with the passing onslaught and added a field goal. 13-10. But they left :38 seconds on the clock and like any great QB, Kellen Moore made them pay. With time left for one play and on the 9 yard line, Coach Bob decided to gamble and go for the 7 points. Moore stepped up in the pocket and saw a streaking Tyler Shoemaker. Shoemaker made the catch that would put Boise up 20-7 at the half.
The Second half was much the same for the Broncos, with another back and forth quarter. There would be no scoring, until 1:07 to go in the third. Moore stepped back and would throw his 4th touchdown on the afternoon. This one was to backup TE Garrett Pendergast. A blocking third TE normally, Pendergast came into the game when TE Kyle Efaw limped off the field. This would be Pendergast only catch of the game. 27-7 at the end of three.
Fourth quarter starts, and the SJSU Spartans would not go away. After a quick stop of the Bronco offense, SJSU QB Faulkner completed another 16 yard Touchdown to Sean Linton. This would inch them closer to the Broncos, 27-14. Not happy with a 13 point lead and nearly 5:30 to go, Bronco QB Kellen Moore would throw his final touchdown on the afternoon. This time it was a 17 yard pass to Chris Potter. This would make the score 34-14 and completely put it out of reach for the Spartans. They would add a garbage time FG to put the game at 34-17, your final score.
Boise wins on last play
TE Efaw celebrates after scoring the game winning touchdown
The fans at Rice-Eccles stadium truly got their money's worth this afternoon. The game started off with a bang when on the first play from scrimmage, Utah Quarterback threw a beautiful ball to Wide Receiver DeVonte Christopher for a 73 yard score and a 7-0 lead. This would show the fans that this game would be wide open. On the first possession for the Broncos, Kellen Moore methodically drove the BSU offense down the field and then threw a strike to the Drew Wright for a 30 yard score. 7-7. On the ensuing kickoff the Utes fumbled the ball and Boise would be stopped on third down. Utah forced a FG, and the Broncos lead 10-7 at the end of the first quarter.
The Second quarter was much of the same in this game, and in the first :06 of the quarter the Utes got Lucky. Halfback Lucky Radley scored on a sweet 13 yard run, where he made two Bronco defenders miss. The BSU sputtered and had to punt after a quick three and out. This meant QB Jordan Wynn took full advantage by throwing a perfect pass to Christopher. Coach Frisk did a hell of a job by training his guys to make perfect catches. By far the best catch I have EVER seen. Boise could only add a measly FG the rest of this quarter, and the Utes went off again scoring another TD. Jordan Wynn threw another TD pass, this time to Kenneth Scott and the Utes went up 28-13 at the end of the first half.
After some adjustments the Broncos came out and decided it was time to use the run. On the opening drive of the third quarter the Halfback DJ Harper then was able to sneak out of the back field and catch a 6 yard touchdown pass. 28-20 Boise still trails at this point. The Utah Utes would continue to fight, and added another score to make it 35-20 with 2:16 to go in the third quarter. Moore would quickly drive the BSU offense down the field and with 1:18 left in the quarter, he would throw a touchdown pass to his brother Kirby Moore. A 58 yard score to put the game at 35-27.
Fourth quarter starts with Utah kicking a FG which would be their final score of the game. 38-27 Utah with 6:34 to go. This is where Moore portrayed his leadership, and the Broncos would come together as a team. After a decent drive that utilized a mixture of pass and run, TE Kyle Efaw would score on a four yard touchdown pass. It would be 38-33 after the failed two point conversion. With Boise still trailing and the Utes getting the ball, the fans at Rice-Eccles were going crazy. Utah wanted to keep the ball and ice the game, and after a first down run QB Wynn would step back in the pocket. Unfortunately he was hit and the ball squirted loose. Utah recovered, but the play ended up costing the Utes a game clinching drive. Boise got the ball in good field position, and Moore would do his best imitation of Drew Brees. With accurate pinpoint throws, Kellen moved the Broncos down the field. With :02 seconds left in the game, and a first and goal from the 2 yard line the Broncos were set up for one final play. Guessing that the Utes would stack the line, Boise ended up calling a quick pass play. Kyle Efaw would get a great jump off the line and Moore hit him right in his hands for a 2 yard score to win the game 40-38.
I have to say this was a heck of a game. It never fails when I play Frisk. GG buddy.
Damn you bobby! Good game! BTW, the Utes alternate home jerseys are money!
haha..yea those uni's are tight Frisk..tried to intimidate me
Moore leads Boise to victory after defense struggles
A game that started of great, almost ended in disaster for the Boise State Broncos. Clinging to a 7-3 and driving late in the first quarter, Moore dropped back and was hit as he threw to the ball. It fluttered right into the arms of the MLB and he raced down the field for a huge momentum turning touchdown for the Falcons. 10-7 AFU. The Falcons had the BSU team completely stunned. With a 13-7 lead going into the final minute of the first half, the Falcons would see why the Broncos are a championship caliber team. With less than a minute, the two brothers (Moore) completed a 11 yard pass to put the Broncos up 14-13. Air Force continued to fight and with no time left in the half they kicked a FG to go up 16-14 at the half. That would be the last time they would even sniff the lead.
Boise kept the pressure on, and scored two third quarter touchdowns to make it a 28-19 lead. Then things started getting crazy. Both teams would trade late fourth quarter touchdowns, and then Moore would connect on his final pass of the game. A 37 yard pass to backup Latimer for the final nail in the coffin touchdown. Boise hung on 42-32.
Boise stomps Wyoming
The Boise State Broncos were finally poised for the first time this season. BSU clicked on all cylinders this afternoon, and the defense completely stopped Wyoming for most of the afternoon. On the games opening drive, the Cowboys methodically drove down the field and scored on 24 yard pass. The BSU coaches were nervous at this point. But, once again they relied on Kellen Moore to pull them out of the gutter. Moore would connect on four touchdown passes before halftime, and the Broncos would roll into half with a 28-7 lead. Moore would end up shredding the Cowboys in the third quarter to finish his afternoon with 6 touchdown passes. The defense allowed a garbage fourth quarter touchdown, but rebounded with 2 defensive touchdowns late in the game. Boise dominates 59-14.
Moore 19/33 323 yards 6 TDs 1 Int
Harper 16 car 82 yards
CB Bryan Douglas 6 TKL 1 FR 1 TD
Boise now gets ready for the New Mexico
Defense, Defense, Defense
Boise forces 4 second half turnovers, and hangs on 31-24.
Boise finally got a game where they forced key turnovers that changed to change the complexion. With the score tied at halftime at 10 all, the BSU defense made a huge play. On a first down, TCU HB Matthew Tucker broke free for what was a 20 yard run, but as he was getting tackled his knees were taken out from him and the ball squirted free. BSU recovered, and Moore jumped at the chance for a quick score. He hit TE Wright for a 33 yard TD.
Boise would then force two more fumbles and an interception. Two of which came in the Redzone for TCU. On TCU's next drive, Tucker again fumbled but this time inside the 20. DJ Harper would break free for a 68 yard score and BSU went up quickly 24-10. TCU had fight and drove down to make it 24-17 to start the fourth. A few punts by both teams, and then the biggest play of the game happened. On a third and 3 from the 21 yard line TCU decided to run the ball. After bouncing outside, the TCU runningback was hit by CB Makinde. Makinde would pull a reach around and poke the ball out. CB Bryan Douglas quickly scooped it up and took it home to make the score 31-17. TCU would add a TD, but couldn't hold BSU to a three and out.
GG TUCO..always a classic with you my friend.
