Boise State edges Washington, 28-26, in Las Vegas Bowl

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Clutch Boise State field goals? Joe Southwick MVP-like performance? Boy, bowl games are weird.

The Broncos held off Washington 28-26, with the winning points coming on a final minutes field goal by Michael Frisina, to win their third Las Vegas Bowl in three years. Jeremy Ioane's interception sealed the deal on the game's penultimate play, and Joe Southwick's 26-for-38, 266 yards, and 2 TDs were the best thing the Bronco offense had going for it.

Game MVP went to Washington RB Bishop Sankey who 279 rushing and receiving yards total and single-handedly kept the Huskies alive in the first half.

It was over when ...

Ioane picked off a Keith Price pass with 14 seconds left and the Huskies driving for the winning field goal.

Box score MVP

The best stat line of the afternoon clearly belonged to Sankey. Southwick had the Broncos' best numbers, but I'll throw a bone to Holden Huff (two TD receptions), Matt Miller (6 catches, 90 yards), and the BSU defensive line (constant pressure, 4 sacks, FF).

Gamblers Anonymous question

Boise State did not cover the five-point spread. Sorry, investors.
