Boise State beats down the Hawai'i Warriors, 49-14

Troy Babbitt-US PRESSWIRE

Coming off an embarrassing and rare home loss, many expected the Broncos to bring the hammer against the Hawai'i Warriors. Many would be right.

The Boise State Broncos showed glimpses of greatness as they improved to 8-2 on the season. Saturday night's bout was not short on big plays, unless you're a Hawai'i Warriors fan. Defense was once again dominant, and Joe Southwick didn't look like a dumpster fire.

After a quick three and out for the Hawai'i Warriors on the first drive of the game, the Broncos came back quick and scored within the first few minutes of the game. One might think that the game was over from that point, especially given the Warriors dismal record this season. One would be wrong to think that, as Special Teams dropped the ball on a kick return for the second straight week in a row.

The Broncos would recover quickly, however, and score six more times throughout the game. Southwick was generous with the ball, as five different Broncos scored. Demarcus Lawrence added a defensive score, and Grant Hedrick got sacked rushed for another.

It was over when...

Trevor Harman rushed for 21 yards for a first down on 4th and 3 at the BSU 31. The fake punt that literally had every Warrior trickerized helped the Broncos convert on a big drive that put Boise State up 35-7 going into halftime. One could also make arguments for a beautiful 46 yard TD pass to Aaron Burks or a Jay Ajayi 13 yard slam dunk up the middle.

Box score hero...

Aaron Burks had 5 receptions for 107 yards and a TD. 21 yards per catch ain't too shabby.

What happens next...

The Colorado State Rams travel to Bronco Stadium and will attempt to shock the world. Hey, they beat Colorado. Also, depending on the outcome of Fresno State - Nevada Saturday night, the Broncos are in a 57 way tie for first place in the Mountain West. Gasp!
