Boise State Game Balls vs. Southern Miss

Who deserves game balls for performing above and beyond during the game against Southern Mississippi? Find out below and revel in the fact that Boise State just won a game and put up a forty burger.

The box score in this game doesn't show a game with any clearly outstanding efforts. The Boise State offense took advantage of great field position in the game ans led the turnover margin after recovering 3 fumbles and catching 2 interceptions. They controlled the ball, scored inside the red zone, and played four quarters of football. Broncos win.

Game Ball for Game Changing Pick: Tyler Gray

Gray is a True Freshman linebacker for the Broncos. You might want to learn his name and number (#36) because he's going to be a defensive play-maker for years to come. At 6'4 and 230 lbs, he looks like a tight end playing linebacker. And that's what he looked like on Saturday morning catching a pass from Southern Miss quarterback Ricky Lloyd. He returned it 34 yards to set up a Matt Miller touchdown pass. In addition to this big play, Gray recorded a career high 4 tackles in the game.

Game Ball for Offensive Player of the Game: Joe Southwick

His performance wasn't anything that lit up the record books, but he managed the game well. There was the one interception he threw while on the run. But besides that, he was on the money and had three touchdown throws and nearly 200 yards passing. The pooch punt down to the 4-yard-line and the rushing yards sans slide were just icing on the cake.

Game Ball for Good Hands: Kirby Moore

He led the Broncos with 5 receptions for 61 yards. This included a 27 yard touchdown where he stiff-armed a Southern Miss defender into the ground en route to the score.

Game Ball for Gaining Confidence: Michael Frisina

Well, there was that blocked extra point, but besides that, Frisina was 2 for 2 on field goals and 4/5 on extra points. The 30 yarder tied a career long and Frisina has completed 6 out of 9 on the season. Baby steps, people. But things are getting better.

Comments:

Who did I miss? There were a lot of young guys who came up big in this game. Darian Thompson had a big interception. Ajayi and Fields played well. Shane Williams-Rhodes had a couple of flashy plays. Should D.J. have earned one for his big 54-yard kickoff return to go along with his two rushing touchdowns? What about Samuel Ukwuachu with his couple of sacks and forced fumble and recovery? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
