Idaho put up quite a fight last night and Boise State was only able to take the lead for good on Derrick Marks' two free throws with 6:35 left in the game. Idaho had the lead at halftime 37-29 but Marks' was able to spark Boise State's comeback with back to back threes in the early part of the second half. Marks had a game high 25 points for the Broncos. Anthony Drmic was hobbled by the flu but was still able to give Boise State 5 points.
He was able to defend Boise State's title from last year when Doug Martin amazed the world with his dance moves. Hopefully this means that Chaz will perform at a similar level to Doug.
Thompson was inserted late in the season when Lee Hightower was suspended and has responded admirably. The pass defense has remained consistent. This is a far cray from last year where multiple injuries in the secondary torpedoed Boise State's pass defense late in the season, particularly in the TCU game.
