Boise just won their 10th out of the last 11 games against Fresno. And that is how this rivalry may end as BSU heads to the Big East next year. Idaho dairy farmers rejoice; the milk can is ours. Got milk? Yes, we do!
Game Ball for Dynamic Duo: D.J. Harper and Jay Ajayi
Thunder and Lighting. Happiness and Anger. Arabian and Appaloosa. Whatever you call them, these Broncos can run.
D.J. had 21 carries for 122 yards and a touchdown. How about that spin move?
Jay had 15 carries for 91 yards. He's averaging 8.1 yards per carry (on the season). That is good. Period.
Boise State has a dang good running game.
Game Ball for North Holland Natives: Geraldo Boldewijn and Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe
Ricky had 4 tackles including a tackle for loss and a sack, being disruptive inside. Geraldo had the lone touchdown reception of the day and in his second week of eligibility this year, he led the team with 3 receptions for 37 yards in a slow day for the Bronco passing game. Hi, ha, hondenlul!
Game Ball for Dominating Defensive Ends: Sam Ukwuachu and Demarcus Lawrence
Demarcus Lawrence had 1 solo and 2 assisted sacks to go along with a forced fumble. Ukwuachu was disruptive despite his only two tackles. Tyler Horn also had a tackle in the backfield. These guys put the heat on Carr and put him on the carrpet throwing off his timing. The carrnage enacted by these guys (along with T-A-T and Bacon) put the secondary in a better position. Carrpe diem!
Game Ball for All Around Defense: Dextrell Simmons
Simmons had a solid game, with three tackles, a pass breakup, and a carr-sickness inducing interception against the MWC's preseason player of the year.
Who else deserves recognition? Should the secondary have received some props for their lock-down coverage all night? Jeremy Ioane and Lee Hightower played fast. J.C. Percy led the team in tackles, again. Mike Atkinson played like we've come to expect. Southwick passed, punted, and received a pass (even though none were spectacular).
