WELCOME TO BRONCO NATION

2009 Boise State Football
The Boise State football team is back in familiar territory, starting the 2009 season in defense of the Western Athletic Conference championship. The Broncos rolled through 12 consecutive regular season victories in 2008, earning their sixth conference title in seven years along the way. Had it not been for a last minute 17-16 loss to TCU in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, Boise State would have completed its second perfect season in three years. The Broncos enter 2009 poised to repeat as WAC Champions. They are led once again by Head Coach Chris Petersen, who is in search of his third conference title since taking over the program in 2006. In three seasons at the helm Petersen has compiled a 35-4 overall record, including a 23-1 record against WAC opponents. Petersen will look to 14 returning starters from the 2008 team to help guide a young but experienced group of players. The Broncos return six offensive starters, six defensive starters and two starters on special teams. Of those 14 returners, there is only one senior, while seven are underclassmen. Offensively, Boise State will lean on a quarterback who is coming off the most prolific freshman campaign in school history. The Broncos also return depth on the offensive line and in the backfield, which will help lessen the work load on a wide receiving corps that boasts a lot of new faces. On defense Boise State will lean on its battletested secondary to help deal with the loss of five starters from the defensive line and linebacker corps. The returning secondary recorded 17 interceptions in 2008, while anchoring the second-best pass efficiency defense (94.43) in the country. Boise State also returns all of its talent on special teams in 2009. The Broncos are coming off an outstanding 2008 season in the punt game, in which they ranked fourth nationally in net punting (39.6 yards). Boise State also returned three punts for touchdowns in 2008.

2009 Season Outlook

OFFENSE
Quarterback: After compiling one of the strongest seasons of any quarterback in school history, sophomore Kellen Moore (6-0, 184) enters his second season in charge of the Boise State offense. After becoming the first freshman quarterback in school history to start a season opener, Moore was named 2008 WAC Freshman of the Year and Second-Team All-WAC. He started all 13 games in his first season, in which he completed 69.4 percent of his passes (281-of-405) with 25 touchdown throws and only 10 interceptions. Moore ended the season with the 12th-best pass efficiency rating in the country (157.12). Moore’s backup is expected to be junior Michael Coughlin (6-5, 220), who has seen limited action in his first two seasons at Boise State. Coughlin played in six games last year. He completed 3-of-5 passes with one touchdown and no interceptions. Boise State has used Coughlin as a running quarterback, on occasion, adding some versatility to the offensive attack. Tailback: For the first time in three years Boise State will enter the season without a definitive starter at running back. The Broncos will look to juniors Jeremy Avery (5-9, 171) and D.J. Harper (5-9, 192) to carry the bulk of the load, however, as they produced 49.7 percent of the team’s rushing output in 2008. Avery was Boise State’s second-leading rusher last season, having carried the football 111 times for 614 yards. He played in all 13 games, averaged 5.5 yards per carry and scored four touchdowns on the season. Avery made history in Boise State’s win at Idaho, breaking the school record for single-game yards per carry (14.2 ypc). He has also proved to be a receiving threat for the Broncos, catching 16 passes last season for 226 yards. Harper finished his sophomore season as the third-leading rusher for Boise State seeing action in all 13 games. He recorded 265 rushing yards on 55 carries and caught four passes for 37 yards. Harper also scored four touchdowns in 2008.

The Broncos will also look to freshman Matt Kaiserman (6-0, 194) and junior Jarvis Hodge (59, 202) to contribute this season. Hodge recorded 12 carries for 46 yards in eight games last year. Kaiserman redshirted for the Broncos in 2008. freshman, while leading the Broncos in yards per catch (14.5). Sophomore Tyler Shoemaker (6-1, 214) enters the season with the third-most experience of the Boise State receivers. He caught seven passes for 110 yards, averaging 15.7 yards per catch as a freshman. He also caught two touchdown passes on the season. Shoemaker’s biggest game of the season came against Idaho State when he scored touchdowns on 56- and 17-yard receptions. Boise State will look for depth at the receiver position from redshirt freshmen Mitch Burroughs (5-9, 194) and Chris Potter (5-11, 165). Burroughs was named Boise State’s Offensive Scout Player of the Year in 2008. Senior Michael Choate (6-0, 194) and freshman Aaron Burks (6-3, 178) should also compete for playing time.

Fullback: Senior Richie Brockel (6-2, 244) has become a staple of the Boise State rushing attack, having provided versatility for the Bronco offense as both a fullback and tight end through the past few seasons. Brockel scored four touchdowns and caught 10 passes for 101 yards last year. He was also a key in the Boise State run game that scored 28 rushing touchdowns in 2008. Sophomore Dan Paul (6-0, 235) will be Brockel’s backup, having seen action in 12 games last season. As a freshman Paul saw the field most often on special teams and as a blocking back. He began his freshman campaign as a linebacker, but Tight End: Boise State returns all three of its was transitioned to fullback midway through last tight ends from the 2008 season in Brockel, junior season. Tommy Gallarda (6-5, 250) and sophomore Kyle Efaw (6-4, 232). Both Gallarda and Efaw saw the Wide Receiver: The Boise State receiving field in all 13 games last year, providing offensive corps will rely on two explosive players to help lead versatility as blockers and receivers. the most inexperienced skilled position heading Gallarda finished the year with six catches into this season. The Broncos are looking to replace for 65 yards. He also scored two touchdowns on four of their top five receivers, 52.3 percent of the season. Gallarda’s longest reception of the year their receptions and 40 percent of their receiving came against Fresno State on a 16-yard touchdown touchdowns from 2008. grab. Junior Austin Pettis (6-3, 200) is Boise Efaw led the tight end group in receptions last State’s top returning receiver. He is coming off a year, catching 17 passes for 262 yards.

that averaged 288.5 passing yards and 152.3 rushing yards per game last season. Boise State also allowed the least amount of sacks in the WAC (13). On the left side of the O-line, junior Matt Slater (6-4, 289) and sophomore Garrett Pendergast (6-4, 288) should share playing time at the tackle position. Slater played in all 13 games as a sophomore, while Pendergast served in three games as a backup guard. At left guard sophomore Cory Yriarte (6-1, 284) and freshman Joe Kellogg (6-2, 301) should fight for time throughout the season. Sophomore Thomas Byrd (5-11, 282) returns this season after starting all of last year at center for the Broncos. He will be joined on the right side of the line by juniors Kevin Sapien (6-4, 272) and Will Lawrence (6-2, 291), who will be looking for playing time at guard. Sapien played in 12 games as a sophomore. At right tackle, sophomore Nate Potter (6-6, 281) and freshman Michael Ames (6-4, 267) will compete for the starting spot. Potter started at tackle part time as a freshman, seeing action in 12 games.

DEFENSE
Defensive Line: Despite losing three of four starters from last season’s defensive line, the Broncos expect a smooth transition with a group of familiar young faces stepping into significant playing time in 2009. The standards have been set high, however, as the Broncos are coming off a dominating defensive performance in 2008. The Bronco front line will be led by junior defensive end Ryan Winterswyk (6-4, 260). He was named First-Team All-WAC in 2008, as well as Boise State’s co-Most Valuable Defensive Player. As a sophomore Winterswyk recorded 40 tackles with 11.5 tackles for loss. He also recorded 4.5 sacks, six pass breakups and forced two fumbles. Sophomore Shea McCellin (6-3, 262) will likely compete for playing time with Winterswyk after seeing time in 10 games as a freshman. McClellin has 14 tackles and three forced fumbles on the season before suffering an injury against Idaho. At the other defensive end position, sophomores Jarrell Root (6-3, 243) and Byron Hout (6-1, 241) are expected to fight for the starting spot. Root recorded nine tackles and one pass breakup last season before suffering a season-ending injury against Utah State. Hout saw more playing time as the season progressed last year, playing in 10 games. He finished the year with 27 tackles and four sacks. He also had his first career interception in the Poinsettia Bowl, which he returned 62 yards. Sophomores Billy Winn (6-4, 279) and Chase Baker (6-1, 293) enter the season as the front runners to start at both defensive tackle positions after playing significant minutes in 2008. Winn played in all 13 games as a freshman and recorded 26 tackles with 5.5 tackles for loss. Baker finished his freshman campaign with six tackles, one pass breakup and one fumble recovery in 10 games. Adding depth at the defensive tackle position will be sophomore J.P. Nisby (6-1, 302) and freshman Michael Atkinson (6-0, 324). Nisby recorded eight tackles in seven games last season. Atkinson was a redshirt last year for the Broncos. He was named Defensive Scout Player of the Year. Linebackers: The Bronco linebacker corps will also call upon a young bunch of players to fill the void left by the loss of two starters from 2008. Sophomore MIKE linebacker Hunter White (5-11, 215) put himself in contention for a starting spot

after a strong showing this past spring. White played in 12 games as a backup last year. He finished the season with 25 tackles. Junior Derrell Acrey (6-1, 233) will add depth at the MIKE position, as he was the team’s fifthleading tackler (59) last year. He also recorded one sack, one pass breakup and forced one fumble. Freshman Tommy Smith (6-1, 213) is also expected to compete for playing time at the MIKE position. Sophomore Aaron Tevis (6-3, 223) finished the spring as the favorite to start at WILL linebacker for Boise State after a solid freshman season for the Broncos. Tevis recorded 27 tackles and three pass breakups in 2008. In Boise State’s season opener against Idaho State he showed a glimpse of the future with a performance that included eight tackles, two sacks, one recovered fumble and one pass breakup. Freshman J.C. Percy (6-0, 211) and junior Daron Mackey (6-0, 227) are expected to round out the group of WILL linebackers. Both Percy and Mackey were redshirts last season for the Broncos. Secondary: The Boise State secondary is expected to be one of the team’s biggest strengths this season with a group that returns four out of five starters from a year ago. The returning group is full of athletic playmakers, which grabbed 17 of Boise State’s 22 interceptions in 2008. Boise State returns its top two cornerbacks from last season, which includes senior standout Kyle Wilson (5-10, 187), who was named first-team All-WAC as a junior after recording 35 tackles, 26 of which were unassisted. Wilson led the Broncos with five interceptions and 10 pass breakups. He tied for 18th in the nation with 15 passes defended. He also ranked 28th nationally (No. 2 WAC) in interceptions. Boise State also returns junior Brandyn Thompson (5-10, 178) at cornerback, who recorded 54 tackles in 2008. Thompson grabbed four interceptions on the season, three of which came against Hawai’i. He ranks second in school history for most interceptions in a single game. Sophomore Jamar Taylor (6-0, 191) and senior Garcia Day (6-1, 199) are also expected to give valuable depth at cornerback. Taylor played in all 13 games for the Broncos last season, recording 24 tackles, one interception and one pass breakup. Day recorded three tackles in 2008, seeing playing time primarily on special teams. The Bronco secondary will also rely on the return of two starting safeties to provide stability on the defensive side of the ball. Junior Jeron Johnson (5-11, 190) led the Broncos last season with 98 tackles. He also recorded three fumble recoveries, three interceptions, seven pass breakups and 4.5 tackles for loss en route to being named SecondTeam All-WAC. Sophomore George Iloka (6-3, 210) also played in all 13 games in 2008. He finished the year fourth on the team in tackles (63) and tied for second in interceptions (4). Iloka also recorded six pass breakups on the year. Rounding out the Bronco secondary will be junior Winston Venable (6-0, 206) and sophomore Doug Martin (5-10, 204). Venable joins the Broncos as a transfer from Glendale Community College. Martin is transitioning from running back this year. He saw most of his time on special times last season, but did carry the football 24 times for 107 yards as a freshman. Boise State is also expecting sophomores Cedric Febis (6-3, 195) and Travis Stanaway (5-11, 183) to provide depth at the safety position. Febis played in seven games last season, registering four tackles. Stanaway recorded 13 tackles and a pass breakup, playing in 12 games primarily on special teams.

SPECIAL TEAMS
Kickers: Junior Kyle Brotzman (5-10, 191) returns for his third consecutive season as Boise State’s starting place kicker. The Broncos voted Brotzman co-Special Teams Player of the Year in 2008 after making all 50 of his point-after attempts and 17-of-26 field goal tries. Brotzman has never missed a PAT during his collegiate career (116). He has also made 75 percent of his career field goal attempts. Brotzman will be backed up by freshman Jimmy Pavel (5-9, 214), who was aredshirt last season for the Broncos. Pavel is expected to provide some kickoff relief for Brotzman this year. Punters: Brotzman is also expected to be called upon to handle the bulk of the punting duties once again after averaging 45.3 yards per punt in 2008. He recorded 1,673 yards on 37 punts last season. Brotzman also successfully downed 14 punts inside the opposing team’s 20-yard line. His career long is 75 yards. Junior Brad Elkin (6-2, 202) will be competing for playing time with Brotzman. He punted 10 times in four games for the Broncos last season. Elkin averaged 40.2 yards per punt as a sophomore. Snappers: Freshman James Crawford (6-1, 209) will handle Boise State’s long snapping duties on special teams this season after redshirting for the Broncos last year. Kickoff Returners: The Broncos’ top-two kickoff returners from last season return again this year in Jeremy Avery and Doug Martin. Avery averaged 23.9 yards per kick return last season. His longest return was 42 yards. Martin also returned 10 kicks for 223 yards in 2008. Punt Returners: Kyle Wilson will try to be as much of a punt return threat in 2009 as he wasduring his junior season. He averaged 14.2 yards per return and returned three punts for touchdowns last year. He finished the season with the most punt return touchdowns in the nation. He also ranked 12th in the country for punt return average. Wilson was named second-team All-WAC as a specialist. The Broncos are also expecting to give some punt return duties to Mitch Burroughs and Chris Potter.

1992 he awards and accolades keep accumulating for Boise State head football coach Chris Petersen. After guiding the 2008 Broncos to a 12-1 overall record, a league championship and an appearance in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, Petersen was named the Western Athletic Conference Coach of the Year by a vote of his peers in early December. In addition, it was announced in December that Petersen had been named a 2008 finalist for the Paul “Bear” Bryant Coach of the Year honor. Petersen is one of eight head coaches from the Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly I-A) who were finalists for the award, which is considered college football’s top coaching honor. Petersen was named the 2006 winner of the Bryant award after leading the Broncos to an undefeated season of 13-0 and their now-famous 43-42 overtime victory over the University of Oklahoma in the 2007 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. In addition to the Bryant Award, Petersen was also named a finalist for the Liberty Mutual and Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year awards in 2008. Petersen, who has a career record of 35-4 for a .875 winning percentage, guided last year’s Boise State team to its third undefeated regular season in five years, its sixth WAC championship in seven seasons, and finished the season with a No. 11 ranking by the Associated Press. The Broncos also fell just two points short of completing their second undefeated season in three years, with a 16-17 loss to No. 11 TCU in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.

In his three seasons at Boise State, “Coach Pete” has clearly established himself as one of the top young football coaches in the country, leading the Broncos to a bowl game and a consistent presence in the national rankings each of those years. Under Petersen, Boise State has compiled an impressive 23-1 record in the WAC with a league championship in 2006 and 2008 and a runner-up finish in ’07. Considered one of the most innovative offensive minds in the college coaching ranks, Petersen has guided an offense that continues to be among the nation’s best. At the end of the 2008 regular season, Boise State ranked 11th in passing efficiency, tied for 12th in scoring offense (37.62 points per game), 13th in passing offense (288.54 yards per game) and 18th in total offense (440.85 ypg) among the nation’s 119 Football Bowl Subdivision teams. The ’08 Bronco defense fared even better in the national rankings. Boise State was ranked second in pass defense efficiency, third in scoring defense (12.62 points per game), 20th in total defense (308.15 yards per game), 22nd in rushing defense (118.00 yards per game) and 34th in pass defense (190.15 ypg).

2009 Boise State Football
The unbeaten Broncos finished their ’08 regular season ranked ninth in the Associated Press Top 25 poll, the USA Today coaches’ poll and the Bowl Championship Series rankings. Boise State’s No. 5 ranking at the end of the 2006 season was the highest in school history. As the ninth head coach in the 40-year history of Boise State’s football participation at the four-year level, Petersen led the ’06 Broncos to their first undefeated season since 1958 (when the school was still a junior college), their first-ever BCS bowl berth, and their fifth straight WAC title. Honors and national rankings are nothing new to Petersen. In the history of college football, only one coach since 1900 won 13 games in his first season at the helm of an FBS team. That coach was Petersen in 2006. In addition to winning the Bryant award that year, Petersen was a finalist for the ’06 Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year award, a semifinalist for the George Munger Coach of the Year award, and was named the Region 4 Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association. As Boise State’s offensive coordinator from 20012005, he was twice (2002 and 2004) a finalist for the Broyles Award, which honors the nation’s top assistant football coach. During Petersen’s stint as offensive coordinator, Boise State featured one of the most potent offenses in the country, averaging 41.3 points per game while also finishing as the nation’s top scoring team twice (2002 and 2003). The Broncos also finished second (2004), eighth (2005) and 18th (2001) in the nation in scoring while Petersen was running the Broncos’ offense. During Petersen’s five seasons as offensive coordinator, BSU finished in the top 15 in total offense four times, including three top10 finishes – first in 2002, fourth in 2004, and seventh in 2003. The Broncos also had four top 20 finishes in passing during that time, including a high ranking of fifth in 2003. BSU also ranked in the top 25 in the country in rushing in three of the last four seasons that Petersen coached the offense, including 14th in 2004 and 15th in 2005. Several players have excelled individually under Petersen in his three years as head coach; the most recent example is freshman quarterback Kellen Moore in 2008. Moore, who was named 2008 WAC Freshman of the Year, finished the season ranked 12th in the nation in passing efficiency and 24th in total offense. In the WAC he was second in passing (268.20 yards per game) and total offense (265.85 ypg). In Petersen’s three years as head coach, 17 of his players were named first-team All-WAC and 15 others were selected second-team all-conference. In 2008 the Broncos placed lineman Andrew Woodruff and wide receiver Jeremy Childs on WAC first-team offense and defensive end Ryan Winterswyk, cornerback Kyle Wilson and safety/linebacker Ellis Powers on the first-team defense. Players who earned second-team recognition were Moore, wide receiver Austin Pettis, running back Ian Johnson, defensive end Mike T. Williams, safety Jeron Johnson and Wilson (as a punt returner). In 2008 Boise State tied for the highest-scoring offense in the WAC, averaging 37.6 points per game. The Broncos were also second in the league in passing (288.5 yards per game) and total offense (440.80 ypg). On defense the Broncos led the league in several categories: fewest points allowed per game (12.6), fewest yards allowed per game (308.2), best pass defense efficiency and lowest opponents’ fourth-down conversion rate (27.8 percent). The Broncos also led the WAC in punting (39.6 net yards per kick). Given Petersen’s ability to develop quarterbacks, the future bodes well for Moore. As BSU’s offensive coordinator and then as its head coach, Coach Pete was instrumental in the development of quarterbacks Ryan Dinwiddie and Jared Zabransky, who are among the most successful collegiate signal callers in recent years. Dinwiddie, who guided the Bronco offense from 2001-03, finished as the NCAA career passing efficiency leader with a rating of 168.19. Dinwiddie had a career-best 188.18 rating in 2002 that would have set an NCAA single-season record if he played in one more game. (He missed four complete games and parts of two other contests because of a leg injury.) He also had a 164.69 rating in 2001 and a 163.72 rating in 2003, both good enough for fourth in the country. With Petersen as his quarterback coach, as well as the team’s offensive coordinator, Dinwiddie led the Broncos to a 28-6 record as a starter. After Dinwiddie left, Petersen helped groom Zabransky into one of the nation’s most successful quarterbacks from 2004-06. Zabransky led Boise State to three straight league titles, two undefeated regular seasons, and a 32-5 record in his three years as a starter, including a 23-1 record in WAC games. Offensive tackle Ryan Clady also excelled under Petersen. A consensus All-American in 2007, Clady decided to skip his senior year of college and make himself eligible for the 2008 NFL draft. In April he became the first Bronco ever selected in the first round, going to Denver as the 12th overall selection. In 2006, Petersen’s first season as head coach, Clady earned second-team All-America recognition from SI.com while Ian Johnson (first-team SI.com and CBS Sportline; second-team Sporting News; and third-team Associated Press) and linebacker Korey Hall (second-team Sporting News) also earned All-America honors that year. In his five seasons as offensive coordinator, Petersen had two players earn All-America honors – running back Brock Forsey in 2002 and offensive tackle Daryn Colledge in 2004. He also helped 12 Broncos earn first-team All-WAC honors, while two (Dinwiddie in 2003 and Forsey in 2002) were named WAC Offensive Player of the Year.

2009 Boise State Football
Petersen came to Boise State as Dan Hawkins’ offensive coordinator following the 2000 season from the University of Oregon, where he was the wide receivers coach. He joined the Oregon staff in 1995 and immediately helped contribute to a passing attack that ranked among the nation’s elite each of the six seasons he was an assistant. Twice during Petersen’s tenure at Oregon, the Duck offense broke the school record for singleseason passing yards, and three times in the same time period the team broke the singleseason school record for most touchdowns. Prior to working at Oregon, Petersen served as the quarterbacks coach at Portland State from 1993-1994, helping the Vikings advance to the NCAA Division II playoffs both seasons. In 1992 Petersen was the quarterbacks coach at the University of Pittsburgh. That season the Panthers established a school record for passing yards and ranked eighth nationally in total offense and passing. In addition, he contributed to the development of first-team All-Big East Conference quarterback Alex Van Pelt, who eclipsed the school’s passing yardage totals previously held by Dan Marino. Petersen’s success as a coach can be linked to his record-setting career as a quarterback at the University of California, Davis. As a senior with the Aggies, he was named the Northern California Athletic Conference Player of the Year and was the top-rated Division II quarterback in the nation. Petersen received second-team Kodak Division II All-America honors and still holds the Division II record for career pass completions at 69.6 percent. Petersen was inducted into the UC Davis Athletic Hall of Fame in 1993. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in psychology from UC Davis in 1988, Petersen started his coaching career at his alma mater, serving as UC Davis’ head freshman coach in 1987-88 and the receivers coach from 1989-91. Petersen holds a master’s degree in educational psychology from UC Davis. He and his wife, Barbara, are the parents of two sons, Jack (13) and Sam (10).

Brent Pease is in his third season as assistant head coach
at Boise State and his fourth as wide receivers coach. Before coming to Boise State, he spent 15 seasons coaching at four different schools in three different conferences, the last 10 as his team’s offensive coordinator. In 2008 Pease put together another outstanding Bronco receiving corps that was a huge key to the success of freshman quarterback Kellen Moore. Two Boise State receivers earned allconference honors last year, as Jeremy Childs was named first-team All-Western Athletic Conference for the second consecutive season and Austin Pettis was named second-team All-WAC. Childs, who left Boise State after his junior season to pursue a career in the National Football League, ranks second all-time in career receptions (168) at Boise State. Under Coach Pease, Childs recorded the most single season receptions (82) in school history in 2007, as well as the third most receptions in a season (72) in 2008. Before joining the Bronco coaching staff in 2006, Pease spent the previous three seasons as the offensive coordinator at Baylor. In his last season at Baylor, Pease helped the Bears post a 5-6 record, their best finish since 1995. From 2001-2002 Pease served as offensive coordinator at Kentucky, where he helped turn the Wildcats into one of the top scoring offenses in the country. After posting a 2-9 season in Pease’s first year, Kentucky finished 7-5 in 2002, which matched its best record since 1984, and was ranked 23rd nationally in scoring offense. Pease coached future NFL players Artose Pinner (Detroit Lions) and Jared Lorenzen (New York Giants) during his two seasons at Kentucky. Pinner finished 13th in the nation in rushing in 2002 and Lorenzen was 23rd in pass efficiency that season while Derek Abney was 10th in all-purpose rushing in 2002 and 12th in 2001. Before moving to the Division I level as a coordinator, Pease spent 10 seasons at Division I-AA schools Montana and Northern Arizona, five of those as a coordinator. Pease served as assistant head coach, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at NAU from 1999-2000. He was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Montana, his alma mater, from 1996-1998 and was an offensive assistant coach for the Grizzlies from 1991-1995. Pease helped the Grizzlies establish themselves as one of the premier I-AA programs in the mid-’90s when they won the I-AA national championship in 1995, finished second in 1996, and advanced to the semifinals in 1994. During Pease’s tenure at Montana, the Grizzlies finished with 10 or more wins four times in eight years. And while he was offensive coordinator, the team compiled records of 14-1 (1996), 8-4 (1997) and 8-4 (1998). At Montana, Pease played a key role in the success of star quarterbacks Dave Dickenson and Brian Ah Yat. Montana led all of Division I-AA in passing in 1996, averaging

339.6 yards per game while leading the Big Sky Conference in both 1996 and 1998. Under Pease’s tutelage as offensive coordinator, Ah Yat threw a Big Sky-record 42 touchdown passes in 1996. Dickenson is first in Big Sky history in total offense and Ah Yat is 12th. Ah Yat led all of I-AA in 1996 with an average of 340.36 yards of total offense per game. Dickenson was the 1995 Walter Payton Award winner and an Associated Press All-American in 1993, 1994 and 1995. Ah Yat was a Walter Payton Award finalist and a I-AA All-American in 1996 and 1998. Dickenson and Ah Yat combined to win five Big Sky MVP awards. Pease graduated from Mountain Home (Idaho) High School in 1983. He played quarterback at Walla Walla Community College from 1983-1984 and then at Montana from 1985-1986. Pease ranks ninth at Montana in both single-season and career passing. He graduated from Montana in 1990 with a degree in health and human performance with an emphasis in social science. He and his wife, Paula, have one daughter, Halle (14), and one son, Karsten (12).

Bowl Experience
ryan Harsin is in his ninth season as a member of the Bronco football staff and his fourth as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. The 32-year-old Harsin is one of the top young assistant coaches in the country and one of the youngest offensive coordinators in Division I football. After serving as tight ends coach from 2002-05, Harsin was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2006 when Chris Petersen was named head coach. He was a graduate assistant with the Broncos in 2001. Harsin faced one of the biggest hurdles of his young career in 2008, as the Bronco offense was taken over by freshman quarterback Kellen Moore. After becoming the first freshman quarterback in Boise State history to start a season opener, Moore would compile one of the most outstanding seasons by any Bronco quarterback ever. With Harsin’s tutelage, he finished the year with a 69.4 completion percentage (281-405), 25 touchdown passes and just 10 interceptions. Moore finished 2008 ranked No. 12 nationally in pass efficiency (157.12). His play earned him second-team All-Western Athletic Conference honors. He was also named WAC Freshman of the Year. As a group, the Bronco offense averaged 288.5 passing yards and 152.3 rushing yards per game. The Bronco’s also led the WAC with the fewest sacks allowed on the season (13). Harsin helped one of Boise State’s biggest offensive weapons make history, as Ian Johnson broke the WAC and school record for career touchdowns (58). In three seasons as Harsin’s starting tailback, Johnson recorded the second most career rushing yards (4,183) in school history. Harsin coached five different players to all-conference honors in 2008, including Childs and offensive lineman Andrew Woodruff, who were both named first-team All-WAC. They were joined by Moore, Pettis and Johnson, who were voted second-team All-WAC. In 2007, Boise State finished fourth in the nation in scoring and sixth nationally in passing efficiency. The Broncos were also second in the WAC in scoring and passing efficiency and third in rushing, total offense and passing. Following the 2007 season, offensive tackle Ryan Clady became the first player in Boise State history to be taken in the first round of the NFL draft when he was selected No. 12 overall by the Denver Broncos. Clady, who decided to skip his final season at Boise State to become eligible for the draft, was named a first-team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association and Sporting News and to four second-team All-America squads. In Harsin’s first season as offensive coordinator, the 2006 Broncos went undefeated and were second in the country in scoring offense, sixth in rushing offense and passing efficiency, and 10th in total offense. Boise State also finished first in the WAC in rushing, second in scoring offense and passing efficiency, third in total offense, and fourth in passing offense. Also in 2006, running back Ian Johnson led the country in rushing touchdowns and scoring while finishing second in rushing and ninth in total offense. Johnson also set a Boise State

single-season rushing record with 1,713 yards on a school-record 277 carries. He was named to four separate All-America teams and finished eighth in the Heisman Trophy voting. Johnson, a senior last fall, was also a semifinalist for the Doak Walker Award and one of 10 “Players to Watch” for the 2006 Walter Camp Player of the Year Award. Tight ends played a vital role in a Bronco offense that led the nation in scoring twice and finished in the top 10 in scoring in each of the four years Harsin was tight ends coach. In 2005 four Bronco tight ends combined to catch 27 passes for 298 yards and three touchdowns. In 2004 Harsin helped Bronco tight ends contribute to the top-scoring offense in school history. In 2003 five tight ends combined to catch 41 passes and five touchdowns. Harsin was a member of the Bronco football team from 1995-1999, earning three varsity letters. He served as Boise State’s backup quarterback in 1999 when the team went 10-3 and won the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl. After graduating from Boise State in 2000 with a degree in business management, Harsin entered the coaching profession at Eastern Oregon, coaching running backs and receivers during the 2000 season. Harsin and his wife, Kes, have two daughters, Devyn Lynn (9) and Dayn Mykena (7), and a son, Davis (3). Harsin is a graduate of Capital High School in Boise.

Bowl Experience
ustin Wilcox, 32, is in his fourth season as defensive coordinator at Boise State and his sixth season overall after working as a graduate assistant for the Broncos from 2001-2002. During the first three seasons with Wilcox in charge of the defense, Boise State led the Western Athletic Conference in total defense and scoring defense each year. Last season the Broncos led the WAC in total defense (308.2 yards per game), pass efficiency defense (94.4 rating) and scoring defense (12.6 points per game). Nationally, the Broncos finished 2008 ranked No. 2 in pass defense, No. 3 in scoring defense and No. 20 in total defense. A big part of Boise State’s defensive success in 2008 came behind the five players who earned All-WAC honors. Defensive end Ryan Winterswyk, cornerback Kyle Wilson and linebacker Ellis Powers were all named first-team All-WAC. Wilcox also coached defensive end Mike T. Williams and safety Jeron Johnson to second-team AllWAC honors. In both 2006 and 2007 the Broncos also led the WAC in rushing defense. In 2007 the Broncos were nationally ranked in pass efficiency defense (24th), total defense and scoring defense (25th), passing defense and sacks (26th), and rushing defense (35th). Nationally in 2006, Boise State was eighth in rushing defense, 14th in total defense, 20th in scoring defense, 28th in sacks, and 30th in pass efficiency defense. Wilcox’s defense was instrumental in helping the 2006 Boise State team to a 13-0 record and its now-famous 43-42 overtime win over Oklahoma in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. In 2007, defensive end Nick Schlekeway and defensive back Marty Tadman were first-team All-WAC selections and Wilson was a second-team pick. In addition, defensive back Orlando Scandrick decided to skip his final season to become eligible for the 2008 NFL draft and was taken in the fifth round by the Dallas Cowboys. Two members of Wilcox’s 2006 squad, linebacker Korey Hall and defensive back Gerald Alexander, were selected in the 2007 NFL draft and started as rookies for the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions, respectively. Before assuming the duties as the Bronco defensive coordinator, Wilcox spent three seasons at California as linebackers coach. While coaching at Cal from 2003-2005, Wilcox helped the Golden Bears to three straight bowl games and 26-12 record. The Bears played in the Insight Bowl in 2003, the Holiday Bowl in 2004, and the Las Vegas Bowl in 2005. Wilcox was credited with turning his linebackers into a unit that epitomized the Cal defense’s swarm-tothe-ball philosophy. In 2005 he coached a second-team All-Pac-10 player and two first-team freshman All-America picks. In his two seasons as a graduate assistant at Boise State, Wilcox worked with the Broncos’ outside linebackers. He helped Boise State to an upset victory over No. 8 Fresno State in 2001 and a 12-1 record and a No. 15 national ranking in 2002.

2002-04 2003-04 2002 eff Choate is in his fourth season as special teams coach, and his first season as the linebackers coach at Boise State, after working as the running backs coach for the previous three years. In his three seasons as the running backs coach, Choate helped Ian Johnson rush to one of the most prolific careers in school history. Johnson finished 2008 as the all-time leader in career rushing touchdowns (58) for both Boise State and the Western Athletic Conference. Johnson also finished with the second-most career rushing yards (4,183) in school history. In 2008 Choate coached one of the top special teams units in the country, which was anchored by punt return specialist Kyle Wilson. Wilson finished the season with the most punt return touchdowns (3) in the country, which earned him second-team AllWAC honors as a specialist. He also ranked 12th nationally in punt return average (14.2 yards per return). On the other side of the special teams unit Choate has enjoyed the services of one Kyle Brotzman, who has provided solid punting and kicking for the Broncos over the past two seasons. Brotzman has made 116 consecutive point after attempts and 75 percent of his career field goal tries. In 2008 he averaged 45.3 yards per punt, while downing 14 punts inside the opposition’s 20-yard line. Phil Steele’s College Football ranked Boise State’s special teams No. 2 in the country last year behind Cincinnati. In 2007 two of Choate’s players received All-WAC honors with Johnson earning first-team honors for the second straight year and Brotzman receiving second-team recognition. Johnson rushed for 1,087 yards and 16 touchdowns while Brotzman led the Broncos in scoring, hitting all 66 of his PATs and 16-of-18 field goals. In 2006 Johnson led the country in rushing touchdowns and scoring while finishing second in rushing and ninth in total offense. Johnson also set a Boise State single-season rushing record that year with 1,713 yards on a school-record 277 carries. In two seasons as Boise State’s special teams coordinator, Choate has seen three of his players earn All-WAC recognition. In addition to Wilson earning second-team All-WAC honors last year, place kicker Anthony Montgomery was a first-team All-WAC pick and punter Kyle Stringer was a second-team selection in 2006. As a team, the Broncos improved significantly from 2006 to 2008 in net punting, punt returns and kickoff returns. In 2008 the Broncos led the WAC in net punting with a 39.57 average while improving from 33rd to fourth nationally. The team also improved from 65th to 20th in 2008 in punt returns. Choate joined the Bronco program after one season as the Eastern Illinois special teams coach. The Panthers finished the 2005 season first in the Ohio Valley Conference. Before going to EIU, Choate spent the previous two years as the special teams coach at Utah State. In 2004 the Aggies were one of just six NCAA Division I teams to have three special team units nationally ranked among the top 30. USU led the country in punt returns, was ranked 24th in kickoff returns, and was 27th in net punting. Choate was a graduate assistant at Utah State and

WELCOME TO BRONCO NATION

2009 Boise State Football 2008 Season Review
Game No. 1 Boise State 49, Idaho State 7 August 30 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Freshman Kellen Moore threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns, and Tyler Shoemaker caught two passes for two touchdowns as Boise State defeated Idaho State 49-7. Becoming the first freshman to start in the season opener for the Broncos, the left-handed Moore used his quick release and rifle arm to complete 14-of-19 passes and no interceptions. The two touchdown passes went for 80 and 56 yards. It was the third consecutive year Boise State opened the season at home against a team from a lower division, and for the third straight year, they routed their opponent. But it didn’t start out that way. The Broncos did not score their first touchdown until a little more than a minute was left in the first quarter. It was the first of four touchdowns in the span of 8 minutes to go up 28-0 with 7:48 left in the half. It started with an 11-play, 76-yard drive, with Moore completing four straight passes for 49 yards and capped by Richie Brockel’s 2-yard run. After a Bengals punt, Moore found Chris O’Neill for 22 yards and Julian Hawkins for another 9. Running back Ian Johnson was stopped from the 3-yard-line for no gain twice before he finding the end zone on a third try, making it 14-0, after the kick, with 12:11 left in the half. After gaining only 2 yards, the Bengals were forced to punt. When he got the ball back, Moore found wide receiver Titus Young behind the Idaho State defense for an 80-yard touchdown on the first play of the drive, pushing the lead to 21-0. Three plays later, the Bengals had to punt again. But Johnson, in on special teams, blocked it and Ellis Powers recovered to give the Broncos the ball at the Idaho State 12-yard mark. Brockel powered in from 3 yards out to make it 28-0 with 7:48 left in the half. Idaho State showed life with an 80-yard drive that included running back Ken Cornist’s 18-yard pass to Isaiah Burel at the 2-yard line. Clint Knickrehm then ran in to make it 28-7 just before the end of the half. But that was all the offense the Bengals could muster. Boise State scored twice in the third quarter, the first a 24-yard run by Young on a reverse, and the second a 56-yard pass from Moore to Shoemaker to cap a 99-yard drive, making it 42-7. Boise State’s final score came on a 17-yard pass from Bush Hamdan to Tyler Shoemaker.

2008 Season in ReviewBoise State Football 2009
Game No. 2 Boise State 20, Bowling Green State 7 September 13 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Ian Johnson rushed for 97 yards, scored two touchdowns and the Boise State defense did the rest en route to a 20-7 victory over Bowling Green. The Broncos held the Falcons scoreless until the fourth quarter, then put the game away in the final minutes by forcing another costly Falcons turnover. With Bowling Green driving deep into Broncos territory, backup quarterback Andrew Beam coughed up the ball and Boise State safety Jeron Johnson recovered it at the 25-yard line. The Broncos got off to an early start, scoring three touchdowns in the first half. Freshman quarterback Kellen Moore completed his first 11 passes, which he spread over two scoring drives. Moore finished 18-of-23 for 180 yards and scored the game’s first touchdown on a 1-yard dive in the first quarter. Boise State’s two-point conversion attempt failed. On the next possession, Moore led a 98-yard Broncos drive. The biggest play came when Moore rolled out and floated a 39-yard pass to Jeremy Childs. Five plays later, Johnson scored from a yard out, giving the Broncos a 13-0 lead with 14:03 in the half. Johnson carried the ball just 13 times, and used his biggest run of the game to set up Boise State’s final score. After taking a pitch from Moore, Johnson ran down the sidelines for 53 yards before being knocked out at the 20. Two plays later, he ran 6 yards for a score, putting the Broncos up 20-0 at halftime. Boise State had 340 total yards on offense, including 160 on the ground, while the defense had two takeaways and a pair of sacks. In the second half, Bowling Green controlled the ball, but failed until the fourth quarter to put points on the board. The Falcons dominated time of possession, keeping the ball for 34:35 compared to 25:25 for Boise State. The Falcons finally snapped the drought early in the fourth quarter, scoring with the help of some trickery on fourth down. On 4th and goal from the 4-yard line, receiver Freddy Barnes caught a pitch in the backfield then found a wide open Jimmy Scheidler in the end zone. With 7:45 left, the Falcons took over and marched into Broncos territory. But with quarterback Tyler Sheehan on the sidelines shaking off a hard hit, backup Andrew Beam scrambled up field then lost the ball on a jarring hit by Billy Winn.

2008 Season Review

Game No. 3 Boise State 37, Oregon 32 September 20 - Autzen Stadium - Eugene, Oregon
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Kellen Moore threw for 386 yards and three touchdowns in his first road start and Boise State upset No. 17 Oregon 37-32. Moore, a redshirt freshman, was composed in completing 24 of 36 passes. Vinny Perretta had three catches for 91 yards and a touchdown. It was Boise State’s first victory over a BCS member school on the road. The Broncos are 3-11 against the Pacific-10 Conference all-time, with all of their victories coming against teams from Oregon (they had defeated Oregon State twice before in Boise). The Ducks went into the game ranked fourth in the nation in rushing with an average of 323.3 yards per game. They were also ranked fourth in total offense, with an average of more than 562 yards. The Broncos managed to slow Oregon, allowing 464 yards of total offense and 227 yards on the ground. After Oregon scored to open the scoring at 6-0, Boise State halved the margin on Kyle Brotzman’s 51-yard field goal, a career-best, then took a 10-6 lead when Moore found Tommy Gallarda with a 9-yard scoring pass. Ian Johnson upped the Broncos’ lead with a 6-yard scoring run, before Moore hit Chris O’Neill with a 3-yard pass to make it 24-6 and quiet the Autzen Stadium fans. Moore was intercepted by Oregon’s Talmadge Jackson early in the second half, leading to Jeremiah Johnson’s 18-yard touchdown run and narrowing it to 24-13. The Broncos answered on the next series with Moore’s 73-yard scoring pass to Perretta. Brotzman added a pair of field goals, from 26 and 34 yards out, to make 34-13 for Boise State. Thomas gave Oregon life in the fourth quarter. First he hit Jeff Maehl with a 24-yard scoring pass, and then found Ed Dickson with a 20-yard TD pass to narrow it to 37-26. Another late comeback appeared possible for Oregon. The Ducks got down to the Boise State 7 after two consecutive pass interference penalties by the Broncos, and Thomas found Moore in the end zone to close to within 37-32 with 2:07 left in the game. But time ran out for Oregon.

Game No. 4 Boise State 38, Louisiana Tech 3 October 1 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore threw for two touchdowns and D.J. Harper rushed for two more to lead No. 17 Boise State to a 38-3 victory over Louisiana Tech. The Broncos (4-0, 1-0 Western Athletic Conference) got another impressive effort from its defense in beating the Bulldogs (2-2, 0-1) for the seventh straight time. Moore, a redshirt freshman, looked sharp again, finishing 20-of-28 for 325 yards before heading to the bench early in the fourth quarter. The left-hander tossed a 13-yard TD to Julian Hawkins early in the first quarter, then hit a wide-open Chris O’Neill for a 44-yard score to put the Broncos up 14-0 early in the second. The Broncos rolled up 464 yards of total offense, avoided turnovers and costly penalties and never let the Bulldogs get close in the WAC opener for both teams. Harper scored twice in the second half, both on 3-yard runs as Boise State rushed for 132 yards. Going into the game, the Broncos focused on stopping Louisiana Tech’s explosive special teams and knack for making big plays. They did just that, keeping the Bulldogs’ return game in check and allowing just two plays over 50 yards, both long passes by Taylor Bennett. For the Bulldogs, it was a night of missed opportunities. The offense moved the ball all game, crossing midfield six times in the first three quarters, but managing just three points. Credit the Bronco’s bend-but-don’t-break defense, which held the Bulldogs to 118 yards rushing, well below their season average of 163.7, and mounted a goal-line stand early in the fourth quarter when the Bulldogs sought to cut a 31-3 deficit. Bennett was just 9-of-27 passing for 202 yards and was sacked twice. The Bulldogs, losers of both road games this season, amassed 320 total yards, but was just 5-of-17 on third-down conversions. Boise State scored on its second possession when Moore found Hawkins on a crossing route in the middle of the end zone. Moore, whose interception on the opening possession ended a scoring threat, was 4-of-5 on the drive. The Broncos reached into the trick play chapter of the playbook to extend the lead early in the second quarter. From the Bulldogs 44, receiver Vinny Perretta took the snap and tossed to Moore, who found O’Neill all alone down the left sideline, putting the Broncos up 14-0. The Bulldogs’ lone score came the hard way. Starting from their own 1, Bennett led the Bulldogs to the red zone, the biggest play a 53-yard pass to R.P. Stuart. But the drive stalled, and Brad Oestreicher closed the gap to 14-3 with a 29-yard field goal. Boise State added another touchdown in the final minutes of the first half when Titus Young went 15 yards around end.

Game No. 5 Boise State 24, Southern Miss. 7 October 11 - M.M. Roberts Stadium - Hattiesburg, Mississippi
HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Kellen Moore threw three touchdown passes and No. 15 Boise State rolled to an easy win, beating Southern Mississippi 24-7 with a scoring flurry in the second quarter. Moore hit 16-of-20 passes for 144 yards and all three touchdowns in the first half, connecting twice with Austin Pettis, for the efficient Broncos (5-0). The redshirt freshman quarterback continued to show an uncanny ability to make the right decisions despite his youth. He came into the game completing 72 percent of his passes and hit 70 percent (21-of-30) against Southern Miss (2-4), which has lost three straight games for the first time since 2004. With Moore guiding them, the Broncos look like they could be BCS busters again. It was Boise State’s 25th road win since 2003 and its 14th regular-season win in its last 15 games. The Broncos were so dominant, they hardly handed the ball off to running back Ian Johnson - though he still managed to make plays. He ran 11 times for 56 yards and made big plays that set up three scores. After a scoreless first quarter, Moore hit Jeremy Childs on a screen pass early in the second. Childs took the pass, one of seven in the first half and 10 for 82 yards in the game, down the right sideline, stiff-armed a defender at the five and outran two others for a 28-yard touchdown. On the ensuing drive, Southern Miss made a mistake that would help Boise State pull away. Austin Davis tried a quarterback sneak on fourth-and-1 at midfield with about 11 minutes left in the half. The Broncos stuffed Davis and a few plays later Johnson ripped off a 23-yard run to the Southern Miss 11. Moore then found Pettis on a 5-yard pass at the back of the end zone to make it 14-0. Boise State went up 17-0 on Kyle Brotzman’s 32-yard field goal after Southern Miss’ Cameron O’Neal fumbled the kickoff. Johnson, playing on special teams, recovered the fumble. Southern Miss got in the game on its next series on Damion Fletcher’s 17-yard touchdown run to cut the lead to 17-7. Moore wasn’t done, though. He took the ball at his own 34 and quickly drove the Broncos down the field in the hurry-up offense, starting with about three minutes to go. He found Johnson with a dump pass over the middle for 26 yards. Then he hit Childs for 18 yards before finding Pettis with a four-yard touchdown with 39 seconds left in the half.

Game No. 6 Boise State 27, Hawai’i 7 October 17 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore threw three touchdown passes and cornerback Brandyn Thompson had three interceptions to lead No. 15 Boise State to a 27-7 victory over Hawai’i. The Broncos (6-0, 2-0 Western Athletic Conference) intercepted Hawai’i’s Inoke Funaki five times, turning three of them into 17 second-half points that put the game away. The Broncos’ smothering defense pressured Funaki all night, sacking him five times and holding the Warriors (3-4, 2-2) to just 288 total yards. Moore finished 25-of-34 for 256 yards. The left-hander’s three touchdown passes gave him 16 on the season and 11 over the last four games. The victory was Boise State’s 17th straight at home and avenged a bitter loss to the Warriors last year that cost them the WAC title. Boise State had 367 total yards, 111 on the ground by its corps of three tailbacks. The Broncos scored first on a 31-yard field goal by Kyle Brotzman and followed that in the second quarter with a two-yard pass from Moore to Richie Brockel. The Broncos took control in the third quarter when Thompson and safety Jeron Johnson intercepted Funaki on Hawaii’s first two possessions, both times returning the ball into Boise State territory. The turnovers shifted momentum in a game that the Broncos led 10-7 at halftime and was statistically even. On Hawai’i’s opening possession in the third quarter, Thompson stepped in front of an errant throw by Funaki and returned it to the Warriors 46-yard line. The Broncos scored six plays later when Moore tossed a 12-yard pass to Julian Hawkins to make it 17-7. After the kickoff, Funaki, under pressure, overthrew his target and the pass was picked off by Johnson, who returned it to the Warriors’ 41. Moore, a redshirt freshman, wasted little time making the Warriors pay when he capped a six-play drive by throwing a 16-yard pass to Austin Pettis that put Boise State ahead 24-7. Early in the fourth quarter, Thompson again picked off Funaki at the Warriors’ 31. The Broncos’ offense sputtered, but Kyle Brotzman kicked a 43-yard field goal. Hawai’i, which has never won in Boise, scored in the second quarter after Boise State tight end Kyle Efaw coughed up the ball at the Warriors 46. Five plays later, Daniel Libre scored on a 3-yard run to make it 10-7.

Game No. 7 Boise State 33, San Jose State 16 October 24 - Spartan Stadium - San Jose, California
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Kellen Moore and his Boise State teammates showed San Jose State that the 13th-ranked Broncos are still the class of the WAC. Moore threw two touchdown passes and Ian Johnson ran for two scores to help Boise State keep its bid alive for a berth in a BCS game by beating the Spartans 33-16 in a matchup of the top two teams in the Western Athletic Conference. Boise State proved to be too much for the Spartans to handle, winning for the 49th time in its last 51 conference games. Jeremy Childs blocked a punt to set up one touchdown for the Broncos and caught a TD pass, while Jeremy Avery led the Broncos rushing attack with 96 yards on 21 carries. The Broncos, who had allowed only one opponent to score more than seven points this season, shut down San Jose State’s offense for most of the game. The Spartans did manage one big play, when Brandon Rutley burst up the middle for a 60-yard run that cut Boise State’s lead to 20-16 in the third quarter. But Boise State methodically closed out the game from there with three long drives that led to field goals by Kyle Brotzman and Johnson’s second TD run. San Jose State didn’t record a first down until Kyle Reed’s 14-yard keeper with 1:18 left in the opening half. But the Spartans still managed to score twice in the half, getting a 62-yard interception return for a touchdown by Justin Cole in the first quarter and a 47-yard field goal by Jared Strubeck in the final seconds. Boise State also started slowly on offense, gaining just 56 yards in the first quarter. But Childs’ blocked punt set up Moore’s 5-yard touchdown pass to Austin Pettis in the first quarter. Moore then hit Childs on an 8-yard TD pass and Johnson ran it in from 2 yards to give the Broncos a 20-6 lead in the second quarter. They were poised to add more late in the half before Johnson fumbled at the goal line, leading to Strubeck’s field goal that made it 20-9.

Game No. 8 Boise State 49, New Mexico State 0 November 1 - Aggie Memorial Stadium - Las Cruces, New Mexico
LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A big offensive performance. A shutout by the defense. A punt return for a touchdown. Boise State is getting better. Even coach Chris Petersen agrees. Kellen Moore threw for 246 yards and three touchdowns, and Boise State’s defense allowed just 150 yards and had six sacks as the No. 11 Broncos beat New Mexico State 49-0 Saturday night. “I think there’s improvement. I definitely feel that,’’ Petersen said. “We’re still not there but we are getting better.’’ Boise State (8-0, 4-0 Western Athletic Conference) beat the Aggies 58-0 last season in Idaho and, after generating 495 total yards this time, simply kept things going a year later. Ian Johnson and Jeremy Avery took turns ripping off long runs, each scoring a touchdown. Kyle Wilson had a 71-yard punt return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. It was enough to convince Petersen that the Broncos are doing the right things. The injury-depleted Aggies (3-5, 1-3) were overmatched from the start, and head coach Hal Mumme had no problem admitting it. “We knew we couldn’t handle those guys,’’ he said. “They’re too good. If we’re at full speed and had everybody, we might have been able to make it a game. But they’re a very talented group.’’ Moore, a redshirt freshman, put Boise State up 7-0 on a 14-yard throw to Jeremy Childs midway through the first period. Wilson’s interception set up Johnson’s 11-yard TD burst, where he broke through three tacklers and dove into the end zone. After a fumble by New Mexico State’s Chris Williams, Avery added a 10-yard TD run. Moore threw a 23-yard TD pass to Austin Pettis and Boise State led 28-0 with 10 minutes left in the first half. Moore played three quarters, completing 14-of-22 with one interception. With New Mexico State’s defense missing tackle after tackle and a revamped offensive line unable to generate a ground game or protect quarterback Chase Holbrook, it was easy for Boise State on both sides of the ball.

Game No. 9 Boise State 49, Utah State 14 November 8 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore threw for 362 yards and two scores, and two Boise State receivers threw touchdown passes and the unbeaten Broncos earned a 49-14 victory over Utah State. The No. 9 Broncos (9-0, 5-0 Western Athletic Conference) rolled up 563 total yards and held the Aggies to 44 yards rushing and forced six turnovers. Boise State’s offense was sluggish at times in the first half converting on 5-of-12 on third downs and committing three turnovers, the first setting up a touchdown that closed the gap to 28-7 and gave the Aggies (2-8, 2-4) momentum heading into halftime. But the Broncos also showed their knack for scoring quickly and keeping opponents off balance with trickery. In the second quarter, Moore tossed a lateral to wide receiver Tanyon Bissell, who turned and fired a 57-yard TD to a wide open Jeremy Childs, the first of two TDs for Childs. Then in the final minutes of the third quarter, wide receiver Vinny Perretta took a handoff and faked an end run before zipping a 17-yard TD pass to Childs, all alone in the back corner of the end zone to put the Broncos up 35-14, sealing their eighth straight win over Utah State. Childs led Boise State receivers with seven catches for 135 yards, and Austin Pettis had seven catches for 57 yards and two TDs. Moore was 27-of-36 for 362 yards and one interception. Boise State’s defense forced Utah State quarterbacks Diondre Borel and Sean Setzer to throw three interceptions and the Aggies to convert on just 4 of 12 third downs.

Game No. 10 Boise State 45, Idaho 10 November 15 - Kibbie Dome - Moscow, Idaho
MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Boise State usually moves the ball through the air, but Jeremy Avery had other plans against rival Idaho. Avery rushed for a career-high 156 yards, the first Bronco back to top 100 this season, and Boise State piled up 315 yards on the ground in crushing Idaho 45-10 to keep alive its hopes of returning to a BCS bowl. Boise State (10-0, 6-0 Western Athletic) won its 10th straight over the Vandals and clinched at least a share of its sixth WAC title in the past seven seasons. Idaho (2-9, 1-6) trailed just 17-10 at halftime. But Boise State scored the first four times it had the ball in the second half to blow the game open. Avery, a 168-pound sophomore, carried 11 times for a school-record average of 14 yards per carry. He added two touchdowns. D.J. Harper (67 yards) and Vinny Perretta (58 yards) also punished the Vandals. Quarterback Kellen Moore was not sacked and had plenty of time to throw. Jeremy Childs made 11 catches for 99 yards. Facing a defense ranked second in the nation by allowing just 10 points per game, Idaho managed 329 yards and one touchdown. Idaho scored on its first play of the game when Daniel Hardy took a short pass from Enderle and ran for an 81-yard touchdown. Hardy appeared to have been tackled for a short gain, but he rolled across the bodies of several Boise State defenders without touching the ground, then popped to his feet and outran pursuers. That was the high point for the Vandals. Avery ran up the middle for a 19-yard touchdown to tie it with 5:35 left in the first quarter. Idaho punted on its next series, and Kyle Wilson returned the ball 79 yards for a 14-7 lead. Boise State scored on all three of its third-quarter possessions, while holding Idaho to 39 yards in the quarter. Avery ran through a big hole on the left side for a 57-yard touchdown on Boise State’s first possession of the second half. Idaho was moving the ball when Enderle was sacked and stripped, and Ellis Powers picked it up and ran 45 yards for a touchdown and a 31-10 lead. Boise State’s next possession was an 89-yard drive capped by a 16-yard touchdown run by Perretta.

Game No. 11 Boise State 41, Nevada 34 November 22 - Mackay Stadium - Reno, Nevada
RENO, Nev. (AP) -Trailing by seven with 28 seconds remaining, Nevada was on the verge of forcing another overtime thriller against Boise State. But the ninth-ranked Broncos, who held the nation’s best rushing attack to just 31 yards in the first half, did just enough, knocking down a pass in the end zone as time expired to remain undefeated with a 41-34 victory over the Wolf Pack. Freshman Kellen Moore passed for 414 yards and three touchdowns, including 319 yards by halftime when the Broncos led 24-3, but threw three interceptions in the third quarter to let Nevada back in the game. Ian Johnson broke free for a 66-yard touchdown run in the third quarter for Boise State, which clinched its sixth WAC title in seven years. Trailing by 21, the Wolf Pack intercepted Moore three times in the third quarter and returned two for touchdowns. Jerome Johnson went 28 yards with one and Josh Mauga went 46 yards with another to make it 31-24. But Wilson returned a punt 39 yards to Nevada’s 31 and three plays later Austin Pettis caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Moore to make it 38-24 with 10:11 left to play. On the next series, Mike Williams sacked Nevada backup Nick Graziano on third down for a 9-yard loss back to his own 4. Brett Jaekle’s punt only made it as far as Nevada’s 37 and Kyle Brontzman kicked a 50-yard field goal to put Boise State ahead 41-24 with 7:20 remaining. The Wolf Pack entered the game averaging 325 yards a game on the ground, but managed only 144 on the game - 75 on 14 carries by Vai Tau, the WAC’s leading rusher who entered the game averaging 128 yards per game. Moore completed 29-of-48 passes while Austin Pettis caught nine for 126 yards and two touchdowns and Vinny Perretta caught five for 126 yards. Moore threw a 60-yard pass to Perretta to set up the Broncos’ first touchdown on a 16-yard throw to Richie Brockle midway though the first quarter. On their next series, Moore threw consecutive passes of 18, 24 and 22 yards before Perretta took a direct snap from center and ran 3 yards for a score to put Boise State up 14-0. His 18-yard TD pass to Pettis made it 24-3 2:06 before the half.

Game No. 12 Boise State 61, Fresno State 10 November 28 - Bronco Stadium - Boise, Idaho
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kyle Wilson returned a punt 90 yards, wide receiver Tanyon Bissell threw for another touchdown on a smooth reverse pass, and No. 9 Boise State went from endangered to dazzling by scoring 48 points after halftime to beat Fresno State 61-10. Ian Johnson ran for 128 yards and scored two touchdowns as scouts from three BCS bowls watched from the press box. The senior tied the WAC record of 57 rushing touchdowns set by Marshall Faulk at San Diego State from 1991-93. The Broncos trailed for only the third time all season early and were up just 13-10 after halftime before Jeremy Avery ran for a 43-yard touchdown three minutes into the third quarter. Then came three more touchdowns in a 3 1/2-minute span to clinch Boise State’s third undefeated regular season in four years. Avery sprinted up the middle, splitting defenders at the 25, to finally put Boise State back comfortably ahead at 20-10 three minutes into the third quarter. Then Wilson took a long punt at his own 10, immediately sidestepped Fresno State’s Desia Dunn and took off. It was Wilson’s third punt return for a score this month, and the fourth-longest in Boise State history. Then Bissell took a handoff on an end-around out of the shotgun and threw on the run to Julian Hawkins, who was alone at the 10 and cruised in to make it 34-10. After Ellis Powers intercepted a tipped pass from Brandstater deep in Bulldogs territory, freshman Kellen Moore threw for another touchdown. His 16-yard pass to Tommy Gallarda made it 41-10. Johnson ended the third quarter by running 69 yards - pulling Owens 18 the final yards - to the 4. He scored on a 4-yard touchdown run on the first play of the final quarter and then on a 1-yard run midway through the fourth. Moore was 17-of-23 for 213 yards and two touchdowns. He completed all four of his passes on his first drive, including a 9-yard touchdown pass in the back of the end zone to Childs. The remainder of the first half was a trade of field goals that left the Broncos up 13-10, the closest any team had been to them at the break since Hawai’i trailed 10-7 here on Oct. 17.

Game No. 13 TCU 17, Boise State 16 December 23 - Qualcomm Stadium - San Diego, California
SAN DIEGO (AP) -TCU’s Joseph Turner’s 17-yard run midway through the fourth quarter gave the No. 11 Horned Frogs their first lead of the night, which they preserved for a 17-16 victory over No. 9 and previously undefeated Boise State in the Poinsettia Bowl. Boise State (12-1) was trying to finish 13-0 for the second time in three seasons. The Broncos took a 10-0 lead on Ian Johnson’s 20-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter, but their high-scoring offense bogged down against TCU’s fast, aggressive defense. TCU (11-2) piled up yards if not points until finally wearing down the Broncos’ defense in the fourth quarter. The Horned Frogs moved 80 yards in 10 plays on the winning drive, with Turner finishing it off by shedding a tackle inside the 5-yard line and diving into the end zone for a 17-13 lead. There wouldn’t be a crazy, victorious finish for Johnson and the Broncos as there was two years ago in their memorable, highly entertaining overtime win over Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl. After Turner’s TD, Boise State got to the TCU 14 before having to settle for Kyle Brotzman’s 33-yard field goal to pull to 17-16. The Broncos got the ball back with 6 seconds left on their 33 and tried to lateral the ball after a catch, but Jeremy Childs’ desperation flip was grabbed by TCU’s Matt Panfil. TCU outgained Boise State 472 yards to 250. BSU had only 28 yards rushing. BSU came in averaging 39 points and 456 yards, one of the benefits of dominating the Western Athletic Conference. Johnson scored on a 20-yard run midway through the first quarter. It was his 58th career rushing TD, breaking former San Diego State star Marshall Faulk’s WAC record and giving the Broncos a 10-0 lead. Broncos quarterback Kellen Moore faked a sweep handoff to Childs, then handed to Johnson, who broke outside and found an open field. Officials brought to the ball to the sideline for Johnson to keep. The Broncos needed the cushion, because TCU’s fast, aggressive defense finally clamped down. Boise State defensive end Byron Hout intercepted Andy Dalton midway through the second quarter, and his 62-yard return included a nice spin move to get away from one TCU player and a stiff arm against another Horned Frog. Hout was a running back in high school. Hout returned the ball to the TCU 11, but the Broncos had to settle for Brotzman’s 24-yard field goal and a 13-0 lead.

2009 Boise State Football Bowl History
Broncos Rally to Win Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl
Boise State 34, Louisville 31 December 30, 1999 – Bronco Stadium – Boise, Idaho
“What a great day to be a Bronco!” Head coach Dirk Koetter pretty much summed it up in his opening comments to the press after Boise State’s 34-31 upset victory over the Louisville Cardinals in the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl in front of 29,283 screaming fans at Bronco Stadium. The game, which featured 10 lead changes, was the first Division I-A bowl victory in the history of the school. Offense was the story early as the Broncos and Cardinals combined for 31 first-quarter points. Louisville started the scoring with a 40-yard field goal by Jon Hilbert which capped a nine-play, 50-yard drive for the Cardinals. Boise State, 10-3, came right back at the Conference USA team. The Broncos marched 80 yards and scored on a 3-yard run by quarterback Bart Hendricks on a fourth-and-one play. Boise State didn’t lead for long. Chris Redman, the Johnny Unitas Award winner, hit Arnold Jackson on a 54-yard touchdown pass after avoiding a sack. Louisville led 10-7. The Broncos came right back, again on an 80-yard scoring drive. Hendricks capped the drive with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Shay Swan to give BSU a 14-10 lead. Once again Boise State wouldn’t hold the lead long. Just 18 seconds. Zek Parker returned the ensuing kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown to put Louisville ahead 17-14 after a quarter. It looked like Louisville would build on the lead. Redman had the Cardinals in scoring position, maybe ready to put the game away early. But Shaunard Harts stepped in front of a Redman pass and returned it 80 yards for a Bronco touchdown to put BSU back on top, 21-17. Boise State helped Louisville out with turnovers as well. The Broncos had a chance to push the lead to 10, but Davey Malaythong fumbled inside the Cardinals’ 10 to keep Louisville close. Another Bronco turnover let Louisville take the lead into the half. Louisville’s Lou Wallace recovered a Damien Schilling fumble on a punt in Bronco territory. Ten plays later, Redman found Damien Dorsey all alone in the end zone to give the Cardinals a 24-21 halftime lead. A pair of Nick Calaycay field goals were the only scores in the third quarter. Boise State led 27-24 going into the final 15 minutes. Early in the fourth quarter, Redman led the Cardinals on a six-play, 60-yard drive, which Frank Moreau capped with a 3-yard touchdown run. Louisville led 31-27. Boise State came right back. Malaythong scored on a 5-yard run to cap a 10-play, 60-yard drive to put BSU up 34-31. Louisville had a couple of chances to win late, but one drive ended with a punt. The second was stopped by a Kareem Williams interception, the third of the day for Redman. The first quarter was highlighted by a 50-yard screen pass to Brock Forsey. Forsey, a redshirt freshman, rushed for 152 yards and had a school record 269 all-purpose yards. The Meridian, Idaho, native rushed for 86 yards in the decisive second half in earning Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl Most Valuable Player honors for Boise State.

2009 Boise State Football
Broncos Win Second Straight Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl
Boise State 38, UTEP 23 December 28, 2000 – Bronco Stadium – Boise, Idaho
If Bart Hendricks hadn’t already etched his name into Bronco football lore, his performance in the 2000 Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl made it a no-brainer. The senior quarterback earned the bowl’s Most Valuable Player honors by scoring three touchdowns and throwing for a fourth in leading Boise State to its second consecutive bowl win, 38-23 over Texas-El Paso. Hendricks’ biggest play of the game came just two minutes into the second half. With the Broncos holding a slim 17-10 lead, he turned a simple speed option play into a 77-yard touchdown run. Hendricks turned up field at the line of scrimmage, eluded a couple of UTEP defenders and then found a lane down the middle of the field. Three UTEP defenders never could catch Hendricks from behind, showing the speed that helped make him the 1999 and 2000 Big West Conference Offensive Player of the Year. After UTEP added a late third-quarter field goal to cut the lead to 24-13, Hendricks and company expanded the lead thanks to the efforts of punter Jeff Edwards. Facing fourth-and-four at its own 37-yard line, Boise State faked a punt on the first play of the fourth quarter. Edwards took the snap, hesitated momentarily and then broke up field. He broke the tackle just before the first down marker, and then slipped outside for a 22-yard gain. One play later, tailback and 1999 Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl MVP Brock Forsey pushed the score to 31-13, taking a sweep play 41 yards for a touchdown. In a matter of just 20 seconds, Boise State had gone from punting to UTEP and holding an 11-point lead, to being up by three scores and close to landing the knockout punch. The Miners responded on their next two possessions, marching 50 yards in seven plays to answer the Forsey touchdown with a field goal, cutting the lead to 31-16. Texas-El Paso’s defense held the Broncos on the following possession. It took UTEP’s offense nine plays to score, cutting the Bronco lead to 31-23 with 7:45 to play. The Miner defense again answered the call, holding Boise State on the ensuing possession and forcing Boise State’s seventh punt of the game. But Bronco safety Travis Burgher forced UTEP’s third turnover of the game, stripping the ball free on the Miner’s punt return. Davy Malaythong came off the bottom of the pile with the ball and Boise State was back in business. Boise State’s next touchdown was the reverse of what Bronco fans seen had throughout the last two seasons. This time it was Hendricks who came out of the backfield in a pass pattern after handing the ball off on a fake run. Wide receiver Andre Banks threw the ball back across the field and Hendricks made his first career reception. The touchdown covered 11 yards as Hendricks went up to take the ball away from a UTEP defender in the end zone and seal the Bronco win at 38-23. Hendricks ended the game, and his impressive Bronco career, with 247 passing yards, a touchdown pass and two rushing touchdowns, while fittingly making the final Boise State touchdown of the 2000 season on a reception.

It wasn’t the start the 15th ranked Broncos were used to, but the end was very familiar. Boise State, the nation’s top scoring offense, scored just 7 first-half points but found its form in the second half and picked up a 34-16 win over Iowa State in the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl. The victory capped an outstanding season for the Broncos as Boise State ended with a 12-1 overall record and its third Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl win in four years. Boise State won its first bowl game in 1999 with a 34-31 win over the University of Louisville. The Broncos successfully defended its H-Bowl title the next year (2000) with a 38-23 win over the University of Texas at El Paso. Boise State trailed 10-7 at the half for just the second time that season (the other coming at Arkansas, 24-0), while totaling just 107 yards of total offense before the break. It was a different story early in the second half. After forcing Iowa State to punt after three plays, the Broncos’ offense started to roll. Boise State scored on their first two possessions of the second half. Brock Forsey capped the first drive, which covered 54 yards on seven plays, with a 2-yard touchdown run. It was Forsey’s second touchdown of the day. On the next drive, Ryan Dinwiddie scored on a 1-yard quarterback sneak after leading Boise State on a 10-play, 51-yard drive for a 21-10 Bronco lead. “I don’t think we woke up until halftime,” senior offensive lineman Rob Vian said, referring to the 10 a.m. kickoff. The Boise State defense kept the Cyclones and all-everything quarterback Seneca Wallace in check for most of the game. Iowa State managed just 275 total yards on offense, and Wallace finished with 83 yards rushing and 107 yards passing while completing just 13-of-38 passes. Three Broncos finished with double-digit tackles. Sophomore linebacker Andy Avalos had 13, Wes Nurse and Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl MVP Bobby Hammer each added 10. Hammer finished with a career-high in tackles, including three tackles for loss. The Bronco offense added a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns, while Iowa State scored a meaningless touchdown with just 2:34 to play. The clincher for the Broncos came with 5:20 to play when Forsey scored his third touchdown of the game, his 32nd of the season, to give the Broncos a 27-10 lead. Dinwiddie connected with senior Lou Fanucchi with 27 seconds to play to account for the final touchdown. Forsey led the Broncos with 78 yards rushing on 24 carries. Dinwiddie completed 17-of-32 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown. Senior Billy Wingfield caught a game-best five passes for 64 yards to finish the season with 1,138 yards receiving, breaking the old record of 1,101 set by Kipp Bedard in 1981. “(Iowa State) had a good defense,” running back David Mikell said about Boise State’s lack of first-half points. “It’s funny, if we don’t score 60 points people say what’s wrong with the offense. I thought they did a good job.” Scoring Summary Iowa State Boise State ISU BSU ISU BSU BSU BSU ISU BSU 1st 3 0 2nd 7 7 3rd 0 14 4th 6 13 Total 16 34 Team Statistics First Downs Rushing (Carries-Yards) Passing Yards Passes (Cmp-Att-Int) Total Yards Total Plays Average Yards Per Play Punting (No-Yards) Punt Returns (No-Yards) Kickoff Returns (No-Yards) Fumbles-Lost Penalties (No-Yards) Third Down Conversions Time of Possession Attendance — 30,446 Iowa State 17 41-145 130 15-42-0 275 83 3.3 7-42.7 5-38 4-77 3-1 6-47 8/23 30:29 Boise State 19 40-157 160 17-32-0 317 72 4.4 8-31.5 5-57 3-84 0-0 5-34 5/15 29:31

Broncos Cap Second Straight Nationally Ranked Season with Victory in the Inaugural PlainsCapital Fort Worth Bowl
Boise State 34, TCU 31 December 23, 2003 – Amon G. Carter Stadium – Fort Worth, Texas
Ryan Dinwiddie ended his career as the most efficient passer in college football and led Boise State to its first bowl victory away from home. Dinwiddie threw for 325 yards and three touchdowns, the last an 18-yarder to Derek Schouman for the winning score, and the No. 18 Broncos beat No. 19 TCU 34-31 in the inaugural PlainsCapital Fort Worth Bowl. Dinwiddie hit 19-of-35 passes for 325 yards and three touchdowns to finish the season with 4,356 passing yards. He also completed his career with 9,809 passing yards, 82 touchdowns and just 20 interceptions. The win wasn’t secure until sophomore Mike Wynn, who had not attempted a kick for TCU all season, was well short on a 51-yard field goal try with seven seconds left. Prior to TCU’s failed field goal attempt, the Broncos missed a chance to clinch the game after Gabe Franklin’s diving interception gave the ball back to Boise State with 5:41left in the game. But Boise State then went three-and-out, giving the ball back to TCU with 3:27 left. In TCU’s final drive, the Horned Frogs converted a fourth-and-10 from their 20 when quarterback Brandon Hassell completed a 28-yard pass. The Frogs then converted on a fourth-and-one, when Lonta Hobbs just got the needed yards to the 28 with 40 seconds left. After three incomplete passes and a penalty, Wynn came out for a field goal attempt, but the kick was well short, securing the Bronco win. The score was tied at halftime with Boise State getting scoring plays from T.J. Acree on a 27-yard pass from Dinwiddie, a 54-yard reception from Dinwiddie to Jeff Carpenter, a 75-yard run by David Mikell and a 23-yard field goal by Tyler Jones. On the first play of the second half, Bronco linebacker Andy Avalos recovered a TCU fumble which led to a 37-yard field goal by Jones for a 27-24 Boise State lead. Another TCU fumble early in the fourth quarter led to Boise State’s final score, an 18-yard pass from Dinwiddie to tight end Derek Schouman. Acree was Boise State’s top receiver in the game with eight catches for 150 yards. Mikell finished the game with 101 rushing yards and Wes Nurse was the top Bronco tackler with 14, including 12 unassisted.

Broncos Perfect Season Falls One Game Short in 44-40 Loss to Louisville in AutoZone Liberty Bowl
Louisville 44, Boise State 40 December 31, 2004 – Liberty Bowl – Memphis, Tennessee
Louisville snapped Boise State’s 22-game winning streak, which was the nation’s longest, in the highest-scoring game in Liberty Bowl history with a 44-40 victory. The Cardinals (11-1) won their third Liberty Bowl by handing the Broncos (11-1) their first loss since September 2003. Eric Shelton scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 1-yard run with 6:48 left, as the eighth-ranked Cardinals held off the 10th-ranked Broncos on New Year’s Eve. The Broncos had one last chance to win after Art Carmody’s 19-yard field goal with 1:10 left put Louisville ahead by four. Quarterback Jared Zabransky drove the Broncos to the Louisville 30 before his final pass into the end zone was intercepted by Louisville safety Kerry Rhodes as time expired. Everyone expected a high-scoring game in a bowl pairing the nation’s top two offenses. The teams didn’t disappoint as they swapped the lead five times. The 84 combined points topped the 80 points by Colorado and Alabama in 1969 and was one of a handful of Liberty Bowl records set. Louisville won only for the second time in seven bowls despite a season-high four turnovers. The Cardinals rolled up 564 yards, topping 500 yards for the ninth time that season. This was the biggest game in school history for Boise State, a program that moved up to Division I-A in 1996. The Broncos, who played their first three bowls on the blue turf of Bronco Stadium, thought they could keep up with an offense that had trailed only Louisville for most yards and points in the country. But the Broncos, who lost 12 starters from their 2003 squad, finished with 284 yards offense, well below their 511.6-yard average. The teams still rewrote the Liberty Bowl record book. They combined for the most points in the first quarter with 24, and their 52 points were the most for the first half. Boise State kicker Tyler Jones had a record 48-yard field goal on the Broncos’ first drive, and Bronco linebacker Andy Avalos had a 92-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter that bested the 79-yarder by Michael Jordan of Tulane in 1998. Boise State led as much as 34-21 early in the third quarter after scoring 24 straight points. The Cardinals settled down in the second half as quarterback Stefan LeFors drove them on an 81-play drive in eight plays, which he capped with a 14-yard TD toss to J.R. Russell. LeFors then gave Louisville the lead back at 35-34 when he ran in from a yard out with 2:17 left in the third. Boise State’s last lead was at 40-35 when Jon Helmandollar plunged in from 2 yards with 10:51 left. Zabransky finished the game completing 14-of-29 passes for 199 yards and one touchdown for the Broncos. T.J. Acree was Boise State’s top receiver with four catches for 57 yards and one score. Lee Marks led the Broncos rushing attack with 66 yards on 15 carries. Two Broncos were in double digits for tackles made with safety Cam Hall leading the team with 19 and rover Chris Carr adding 10.

Second Half Rally Comes up Short in MPC Computers Bowl Loss to Boston College
Boston College 27, Boise State 21 December 28, 2005 – MPC Computers Bowl – Boise, Idaho
It was nearly a comeback for the ages. Boise State’s second-half rally came up just short as the Broncos lost 27-21 to No. 19 Boston College in the MPC Computers Bowl in Bronco Stadium. Boston College’s Ryan Glasper picked off Bronco quarterback Jared Zabransky’s pass in the end zone with 40 seconds to play to salvage a win for the Eagles, who led 27-0 with 1:30 to play in the third quarter. Boise State stormed back thanks to big plays. Zabransky found Drisan James with a 53-yard touchdown pass to pull the Broncos to within 27-7. The Broncos got the ball back when safety Marty Tadman picked off Matt Ryan at Boston College’s 33. The Broncos capitalized with a four-play drive for a touchdown that was capped by a Zabransky 2-yard touchdown run. Boise State crawled even closer after a big play on special teams. Quinton Jones returned a punt 92 yards for a score and Boise State was within a touchdown, 27-21. The Broncos got the chance to win the game with one final possession. Boise State drove to the Boston College 5-yard line after a fourth-and-nine conversion and a pass interference call on the Eagles. Zabransky found freshman Vinny Perretta for 32 yards on the fourthand-nine to get the ball down to the Boston College 14. The Broncos’ drive and the hopes of continuing their 31-game home winning streak ended when Glasper picked off the pass. Jones finished the game with a school-record 151 punt return yards, and his 92-yard return for a touchdown tied the school record he set earlier in the season at Hawaii. Zabransky finished with 279 yards passing while completing 20-of-35 with one touchdown and two interceptions. Legedu Naanee had five catches for 52 yards, Perretta had a career-best four catches for a career-high 84 yards and Jerard Rabb and Jeff Carpenter had four catches each. Korey Hall led Boise State with 15 tackles, while Tadman had 11 tackles and an interception and Colt Brooks added 10 tackles.

Boise State Shocks the Football World with Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Victory over Oklahoma
Boise State 43, Oklahoma 42 (OT) January 1, 2007 – University of Phoenix Stadium – Glendale, Arizona
In what many say was the greatest game in college football history, ninth-ranked Boise State shocked the No. 7 Oklahoma Sooners 43-42 in overtime to win the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, leaving Boise State as the only undefeated team in the country. Boise State showed plenty of heart and resilience in edging the Sooners in one of the most amazing games in recent memory. In one of the most dramatic finishes in BCS history, the Sooners and the Broncos combined for 22 points in the final 86 seconds of regulation. Boise State lost an 18-point lead midway through the third quarter, then twice rallied from 7-point deficits. The Broncos appeared to be finished when Oklahoma cornerback Marcus Walker intercepted Jared Zabransky’s pass and returned it 33 yards for a touchdown to put the Sooners ahead 35-28 with 1:02 remaining. The magic began on a stunning 50-yard touchdown play on fourth-and-18 in the final seconds of regulation. Zabransky hit Drisan James at Oklahoma’s 35, and James pitched the ball to Jerard Rabb, who raced into the end zone with seven seconds to play. That play merely set the stage for more Bronco magic. Oklahoma’s Adrian Peterson opened the overtime with a 25-yard touchdown run. The Broncos answered with Vinny Perretta’s fourth-down touchdown pass to Derek Schouman. With Boise State down by a point, Petersen decided to go for the victory. On the decisive play, Zabransky looked at three wide receivers to his right, then handed the ball behind his back to tailback Ian Johnson, who raced untouched into the end zone for the winning 2-point conversion. The wild finish came after Boise State dominated the first 40 minutes, making it clear that the Western Athletic Conference champion deserved a BCS berth. The Broncos stunned the Sooners with two quick touchdowns to take a 14-0 lead midway through the first quarter. The first came on a 49-yard touchdown pass from Zabransky to James. Zabransky froze the defense with a play-fake to Johnson, then fired to James, who was all alone 10 yards behind Walker. On the next series, defensive end Mike T. Williams sacked Sooners quarterback Paul Thompson, who fumbled. Williams recovered at Oklahoma’s 9. Two plays later, Johnson scored from 2 yards out to give the Broncos a 14-0 lead with 7:28 left in the first quarter. The Sooners cut the lead to 14-10 before Zabransky and James connected again shortly before the half for a 21-10 lead. Boise State’s lead was extended to 18 points midway through the third quarter when Marty Tadman intercepted a Sooner pass and returned it 27 yards for a touchdown. But Oklahoma didn’t go away quietly. The Sooners scored a field goal and two touchdowns to cut the Bronco lead to 28-26, with the extra point still to come with 1:26 remaining in regulation. After penalties on their first two 2-point conversion tries, Oklahoma finally converted on a pass play to tie the score at 28. That set the stage for the climax to one of the most celebrated college games ever.

Last Second Field Goal Hands Broncos Defeat at Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl
East Carolina 41, Boise State 38 December 23, 2007 – Aloha Stadium – Honolulu, Hawai’i
HONOLULU (AP) – Ben Hartman kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired to give East Carolina a 41-38 win over No. 24 Boise State in the Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl Chris Johnson led the Pirates setting an NCAA bowl record with 408 all-purpose yards. Johnson rushed for 223 yards, caught three passes for 32 yards and returned six kickoffs for 153 yards. But he committed a costly fumble late that almost sent it to overtime. With East Carolina trying to run out the clock near midfield, Boise State’s Marty Tadman scooped up Johnson’s fumble and returned it 47 yards for a touchdown to tie it at 38 with 1:25 left. The Pirates took possession at their 39 with 1:16 left and drove to the Broncos 17 to set up Hartman’s kick. The Broncos (10-3), making their sixth straight bowl appearance, almost repeated their last-minute magic from a year ago when they stunned Oklahoma in overtime in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl to finish 13-0. The Pirates appeared to have the game in hand when they took a 38-14 lead early in the third quarter on Brandon Simmons’ 3-yard TD run. The Broncos, however, hung in and reeled off 24 straight points. D.J. Harper’s 1-yard TD plunge cut East Carolina’s lead to 38-31 with 7:09 left. Boise State was driving to tie the game in the final minutes when East Carolina recovered a Bronco fumble which set up the Pirates at their 39 with 1:45 left. But East Carolina’s Johnson couldn’t hang on to the ball as he struggled to add a few more yards to his record, and Tadman returned the fumble for a touchdown. The usually explosive Broncos looked rusty and unprepared in the first half. They went three-and-out on their first four possessions, followed by an interception, touchdown and fumble. Boise State managed just 3 yards of offense in the first quarter while East Carolina racked up 181 behind Johnson’s 106 rushing yards. The Broncos’ lone highlight in the first quarter was Austin Smith’s 89-yard kickoff return for a TD. In the second quarter, Ryan Putnam caught a 3-yard pass from Tharp to cut East Carolina’s lead to 10. Freshman running back Jeremy Avery was named Boise State’s most valuable player in the game, gaining 69 yards on 10 carries, catching four passes for 43 yards and one touchdown and returning two kickoffs for 41 yards.

Broncos come up short in one point loss to TCU at San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl
TCU 17, Boise State 38 December 23, 2008 – Qualcomm Stadium – San Diego, California
SAN DIEGO (AP) -TCU’s Joseph Turner’s 17-yard run midway through the fourth quarter gave the No. 11 Horned Frogs their first lead of the night, which they preserved for a 17-16 victory over No. 9 and previously undefeated Boise State in the Poinsettia Bowl. Boise State (12-1) was trying to finish 13-0 for the second time in three seasons. The Broncos took a 10-0 lead on Ian Johnson’s 20-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter, but their high-scoring offense bogged down against TCU’s fast, aggressive defense. TCU (11-2) piled up yards if not points until finally wearing down the Broncos’ defense in the fourth quarter. The Horned Frogs moved 80 yards in 10 plays on the winning drive, with Turner finishing it off by shedding a tackle inside the 5-yard line and diving into the end zone for a 17-13 lead. There wouldn’t be a crazy, victorious finish for Johnson and the Broncos as there was two years ago in their memorable, highly entertaining overtime win over Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl. After Turner’s TD, Boise State got to the TCU 14 before having to settle for Kyle Brotzman’s 33-yard field goal to pull to 17-16. The Broncos got the ball back with 6 seconds left on their 33 and tried to lateral the ball after a catch, but Jeremy Childs’ desperation flip was grabbed by TCU’s Matt Panfil. TCU outgained Boise State 472 yards to 250. BSU had only 28 yards rushing. BSU came in averaging 39 points and 456 yards, one of the benefits of dominating the Western Athletic Conference. Johnson scored on a 20-yard run midway through the first quarter. It was his 58th career rushing TD, breaking former San Diego State star Marshall Faulk’s WAC record and giving the Broncos a 10-0 lead. Broncos quarterback Kellen Moore faked a sweep handoff to Childs, then handed to Johnson, who broke outside and found an open field. Officials brought to the ball to the sideline for Johnson to keep. The Broncos needed the cushion, because TCU’s fast, aggressive defense finally clamped down. Boise State defensive end Byron Hout intercepted Andy Dalton midway through the second quarter, and his 62-yard return included a nice spin move to get away from one TCU player and a stiff arm against another Horned Frog. Hout was a running back in high school. Hout returned the ball to the TCU 11, but the Broncos had to settle for Brotzman’s 24-yard field goal and a 13-0 lead.

Led by quarterback Eric Guthrie, the 1971 Boise State football team provided Bronco fans with one big win after another en route to a 10-2 overall record. Guthrie started the season with a bang, throwing for 297 yards in Boise State’s season opening 42-14 throttling of the University of Idaho in the first-ever meeting between the two schools. All told, he would lead the Broncos to nine regular season victories, including a perfect 7-0 mark at Bronco Stadium. A successful regular season earned Boise State a spot opposite Chico State in the Camellia Bowl, held in Sacramento, California. It would take a monster fourth quarter to end the 1971 season with a bowl victory, as Boise State scored 25 points in the final 15 minutes to pull out a thrilling 32-28 victory over a stunned Chico State team. Guthrie completed 19-of-43 passes for 282 yards during the nationally televised game and was named Camellia Bowl MVP by ABC Sports.

The dream season for Boise State football took place in 1980 as the Broncos captured not only the Big Sky Conference title but also the NCAA Division I-AA national championship. A convincing 28-7 road victory over Division I-A Utah set the stage for what would be a memorable year. Boise State picked up wins in eight of its final nine games, while outscoring the Big Sky opposition by an average of 17 points per game en route to a league-best 6-1 record. Boise State’s march to the national title included a 14-9 upset semifinal victory over highly touted Grambling on a cold and foggy day in Bronco Stadium. Quarterback Joe Aliotti threw scoring passes to Cedric Minter and Kipp Bedard, just supplying enough offense for the win. But it was the Bronco defense that stole the show, limiting Grambling to just 41 passing yards and preserving the victory with a big defensive stand just yards from the goal line on Grambling’s final possession. The Broncos did not let a ticket to the national championship game slip away, downing Eastern Kentucky in arguably one of the greatest football game in Boise State history. After falling behind 29- 1980 Broncos: 10-3 Overall; 6-1 Big 24 with less than a minute to play, Aliotti led the Broncos on a Sky; Big Sky Conference Champions; game-winning drive that took just 43 seconds off the game clock, but will be remembered forever by those close to the Bronco NCAA Division I-AA National program. The final scoring play came on fourth-and-10 with 20 Champions seconds to play, as Aliotti scrambled far to the right and threw Head Coach: Jim Criner back across the field to tight end Duane Dlouhy, who caught the game winner in the left corner of the end zone for a 31-29 lead to secure the dream season.

Magical is the only way to describe the 1994 season, as an unknown group of Broncos went from 3-8 in 1993 all the way to 13-2 a year later. Along the way, Boise State upset the No. 1, 2 and 3 ranked teams in the country and ignited the fans of Boise. The magical season opened with a six-game win streak, including a 37-27 victory over Division I-A Nevada in mid-September. If that wasn’t enough, the Broncos put together a seven-game win streak during October, November and December. Included in that streak was an emotional 27-24 victory over Idaho, which sealed the Big Sky Conference title. Three home games during the Division I-AA playoffs supplied Boise with plenty of heart-stopping moments. Cornerback DaWuan Miller’s fourthquarter interception capped an amazing come-from-behind win 1994 Broncos: 13-2 Overall; 6-1 Big Sky; over North Texas in the first round. Two Tony Hilde touchdown Big Sky Conference Champions; NCAA passes to Ryan Ikebe were just enough for the Broncos to survive Appalachian State in the quarterfinals. That set up a semifinal Division I-AA National Runner-up showdown with powerful Marshall, and another comeback which Head Coach: Pokey Allen included 21 unanswered points and a late defensive stand that sealed a 28-24 Boise State victory. Some say the Broncos used up their remaining magic in that semifinal victory and didn’t have enough to overcome top-ranked Youngstown State in the Division I-AA national championship game at Huntington, West Virginia. But despite the 28-14 loss, the 1994 season may have been the most exciting in school history as the Broncos set a school record for wins and completed the second-best one-season turnaround in NCAA history.

Unchartered territory. That’s where the 1999 Boise State football team traveled. Behind a 10-3 overall record and a 34-31 victory over Louisville in the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl, the 1999 Broncos earned Boise State its first-ever Division I-A conference championship and bowl victory. The Broncos shook off a sluggish 1-2 start to the season, winning nine of the final 10 games. The mid-season turnaround started with back-to-back victories over Mountain West Conference foes New Mexico and Utah and ended with a dominating 45-14 victory over Idaho to wrap up the Big West title. During the team’s six-game win streak to end the season, Boise State was simply overpowering. The Broncos outscored the opposition by an average margin of 45.3-20.8 per game, with three of the six games during that memorable stretch decided by 30 points or more. A Big West crown kept the team at home during the bowl season, as the Broncos took part in Boise’s very own Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl.

One of the most difficult tasks in athletics is repeating a championship performance. For the Boise State football team, one goal stood above all others during the 2000 season – duplicating the success of 1999 when the Broncos went from unknown to Big West Conference and Crucial. com Humanitarian Bowl champions. But unlike the previous year, Boise State was far from an unknown in 2000 as expections and preseason hype, which included a top 25 ranking by the 2000 Broncos: 10-2 Overall; 5-0 Big New York Times and the overwhelming choice by Big West West; Big West Conference Champions; media and coaches to repeat as league champions, followed the team from the start of fall practice through the regular Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl season finale in mid-November. Champions Head coach Dirk Koetter and his staff preached Head Coach: Dirk Koetter a one-game-at-a-time approach, beginning with a seasonopening road trip to the University of New Mexico. The Broncos jumped on the Mountain West Conference Lobos early, and set the tone for a championship season with a 31-14 road victory to start the year. An impressive start to the season continued into Big West Conference play, as the Broncos reeled off six straight wins to end the regular season. Included was a perfect 5-0 league record, in which domination was the only way to describe Boise State. The Broncos averaged 53 points per game and outscored their Big West opposition by an average of 32 points per game. The 2000 season culminated with a second straight invite to the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl, where the Broncos met Western Athletic Conference co-champion UTEP. Led by senior quarterback Bart Hendricks, Boise State built a 31-13 second half lead en route to a 38-23 victory and back-to-back bowl championships. Hendricks earned game MVP honors after accounting for four touchdowns. It capped an incredible season for the record-setting quarterback as he earned Big West Offensive Player of the Year honors, was a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, set 10 different single season or career school records, led the nation in touchdown passes and was the highest-rated passer in the country. Boise State met its ultimate goal in 2000, repeating as conference and bowl champions. National attention followed as well when the Broncos produced consecutive 10-win seasons and finished the season ranked 33rd in the country by the Associated Press and 37th in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll.

Boise State had never experienced a season like the one in 2002. Minus one seven-turnover hiccup at Arkansas, it may have been a perfect season. The Broncos raced to a 12-1 record, finished the WAC season with a perfect 8-0 mark, cracked both the ESPN/ USA Today and Associated Press Top 25 polls for the first time in school history and won their third Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl in four years. Along the way, Boise State put together the country’s top scoring offense, led the nation in total offensive yards and was the most efficient passing team in I-A football. The Broncos had the nation’s leading scorer, Brock Forsey, who tallied a school-record 32 touchdowns and swept the WAC’s postseason awards in the three major categories. Forsey was honored as the Offensive Player of the Year, while safety Quintin Mikell was named the Defensive Player of the Year and head coach Dan Hawkins earned Coach of the Year honors. The Bronco offense rolled over just about everybody. The 2002 WAC champs scored over 50 points in four straight games and in five of six at one point. Included in that run was a pair of 60-point games, 63-38 win over Utah State and an amazing 67-21 win over Fresno State. Throw in a 58-31 win over WAC runner-up Hawai’i in that stretch and you can see why Boise State placed four players – Forsey, quarterback Ryan Dinwiddie, center Scott Huff, and right guard Rob Vian – on the All-WAC first team, and one more (wide receiver Billy Wingfield) on the All-WAC second team. While the offense received the majority of the headlines, the Bronco defense proved to be the best in the WAC. The Bronco “D” held four opponents under 10 points, all of those efforts coming during the last five weeks of season. While Mikell was the only Bronco to earn first-team all-league honors, three others were on the second team – defensive end Ryan Nelson, linebacker Chauncey Ako and cornerback Gabe Franklin. The Bronco special teams were, well, special. Tim Gilligan and David Mikell were two of the top return men in college football, while a hard-hitting coverage team led by Kameron Merritt, Donny Heck, and Brad Allen provided big play after big play. Kickers Nick Calaycay and Tyler Jones both helped spark Boise State to wins. Calaycay finished the season sixth in the nation in scoring despite missing three games with an injury, while Jones was so adept at kicking off for touchbacks that he was named special teams player of the week following Boise State’s 58-3 win at UTEP. In the Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl the Broncos capped the season with the one missing piece that has plagued the program since moving up to NCAA Division I-A – a win over a power conference team. The victim would be Iowa State of the Big 12 as the Broncos overcame a sluggish first half before posting a 34-16 victory. When the 2002 season began, the motto for the season was “Leave No Doubt.” Following a WAC championship, a 12-1 record, a top 25 ranking and a postseason bowl victory, the Broncos “Left No Doubt.”

For the second straight season, the Boise State football team made noise on the national scene. A year after cracking the top 25 for the first time and winning a third bowl game in four years, and despite losing eight starters on offense, the 2003 Bronco team may have bested the incredible season put together by the 2002 team. Boise State climbed into the national rankings, where it finished 15th in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, 16th in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll and 17th in the final BCS rankings. Once again the Broncos raced through the WAC, winning all eight of their league games. But this time, Boise State did it with arguably the toughest road schedule in school history, winning at Fresno State, Hawai’i, and Louisiana Tech among others. And this time the Broncos won a bowl away from the friendly confines of Bronco Stadium, capping their 13-1 season with an impressive 34-31 win over TCU in the PlainsCapital Fort Worth Bowl on the Horned Frogs’ home field. The only thing that kept the Broncos from the first undefeated season in school history was a narrow, and controversial, 26-24 loss at Oregon State during the third week of the season. Boise State dominated its opponents on both offense and defense during the season, winning by a combined score of 43.0 to 17.1. Boise State ranked first in the country in scoring for the second straight season. The Broncos also finished third in passing efficiency, fifth in passing offense and seventh in total offense. The Broncos were nearly as productive on defense, finishing 12th in scoring defense, 11th in rushing defense and seventh in pass efficiency defense. On special teams the Broncos were 15th in both kickoff and punt returns. Individually, Ryan Dinwiddie capped a stellar career, earning WAC Offensive Player of the Year honors while setting a NCAA career passing efficiency record. Tim Gilligan, who set a single-season receiving yards record at Boise State, Andy Avalos, Wes Nurse and Julius Roberts joined Dinwiddie on the All-WAC first team. Boise State also placed 11 other Broncos on either the All-WAC second team or on the All-WAC honorable mention team. Nine of the 11 starters on defense earned All-WAC recognition, while six starters on offense and the Broncos‘ field goal kicker also earned All-WAC honors.

The 2004 football season is one that will go down in the history books as one of the greatest in school history at the time. Coming into the year, few expected it could get any better than what had happened over the previous two seasons. They were wrong. After back-to-back one-loss regular seasons and the loss of 12 starters from the 2003 team, experts thought Boise State’s run among the nation’s elite was over. They were wrong as well. Despite fielding the second-youngest team in the country, and despite losing five starters to injury that forced the Broncos to turn to young untested players, the 2004 Boise State team found a way to accomplish a number of things most thought were out of

its reach. The Broncos picked up their first-ever win over a Pac-10 team, climbed as high as No. 10 in both major polls while peaking at No. 7 in the BCS standings, and finished the regular season undefeated for the first time as a four-year school. It all started with 65-7 manhandling of rival Idaho, the largest margin of victory in the history of the rivalry. Boise State racked up 572 yards, while limiting Idaho to 212, 71 of which came on one play with 1:20 left in the game. Along the way it included a win over Oregon State (the first ever over a Pac-10 team), thrilling last-second wins against BYU, Tulsa and San Jose State, and the Broncos’ third straight undefeated WAC season The Broncos accomplished nearly every goal they set for the season – an undefeated regular season record, a third straight WAC title, a WAC-record 26 straight league wins and 22 straight overall wins before a heartbreaking 44-40 loss to Louisville in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. Nationally, the Broncos finally received the recognition they deserved during the three-season run in the top 25. Boise State got front page coverage in USA Today as well as feature articles in the Sporting News, Sports Illustrated, ESPN The Magazine and the New York Times, among others. Individual honors came as well. Daryn Colledge, Tyler Jones, and Jared Zabransky received All-America honors, with Jones being named a finalist for the prestigious Lou Groza Award honoring the nation’s top kicker. In all, 16 Broncos were named to the All-WAC team, with six separate Broncos – Colledge, Jones, T.J. Acree, Andy Avalos, Gabe Franklin and Korey Hall – earning first-team All-WAC honors.

The waters weren’t as smooth on the journey but the end result was just as nice. Unlike the previous two seasons, Boise State ran into some adversity during the 2005 season, but the Broncos battled through it and the result was a character-building fourth straight Western Athletic Conference championship – a run of championships that tied USC for the longest current streak in the country. Few teams in WAC history have been able to match the dominance that Boise State continued in 2005. Other than the BYU team that won nine straight titles in the late 1970s and early ‘80s, no WAC team except Boise State had managed to win four straight league titles. The Broncos continued their dominance with one of the youngest teams in college football. The Broncos started just four seniors, the fewest in the country. Boise State also had 23 freshmen or sophomores on the two-deep roster, including four freshmen who started at least one game. Three Broncos – Daryn Colledge, Alex Guerrero and Korey Hall – were named first-team All-WAC while four others – Lee Marks, Drisan James, Andrew Browning and Marty Tadman – earned second-team honors. Freshmen Ryan Clady and Orlando Scandrick each were named to freshman All-America team, while punt returner Quinton Jones earned second-team All-America honors from the Sporting News and honorable mention All-America honors from SI.com. The season didn’t get off to the start the Broncos had hoped for with losses at Georgia and Oregon State. The Broncos rallied, winning their next seven games, including an impressive 49-14 win over WAC co-champion Nevada. Boise State also had impressive wins over Bowling Green, San Jose State, Utah State and New Mexico State in that stretch, with a thrilling win over Hawai’i and a win over Portland State to run its record to 7-2. After a loss at Fresno State snapped Boise State’s conference record winning streak at 31 games, the Broncos bounced back with wins against archrival Idaho (the seventh straight over the Vandals) and Louisiana Tech to claim the school’s fourth-straight WAC crown and sixth conference title in seven years. A heart-breaking 27-21 loss to Boston College in the MPC Computers Bowl ended a season that showed the character and resolve of the 2005 WAC champions. Trailing the Eagles 27-0 late in the fourth quarter, the Broncos stormed back, only to lose when they had a pass intercepted in the end zone with just over a minute to play. Much like the 2005 season as a whole, the bowl game showed Boise State’s will to win and character to overcome early adversity.

With apologies to the 1980 season and the three-year run from 2002-2004 when Boise State compiled a 36-3 record and won three straight Western Athletic Conference championships without losing a league game, there is no doubt that the 2006 season was the greatest in school history. The Broncos capped a perfect 13-0 season with a 43-42 overtime win over national-power Oklahoma in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, which will go down in history as one of the greatest college football games ever played. “Circus” – the hook and lateral play from Jared Zabransky to Drisan James to Jerard Rabb for the tying touchdown with seconds to play – and “Statue Left” – the Statue of Liberty play that saw Zabransky stick the ball behind his back with Ian Johnson grabbing it and racing to the end zone for the game-winning 2-point conversion – will forever be etched in the memories of Bronco fans. As will Vinny Perretta’s tailback option touchdown pass to Derek Schouman after quarterback Zabransky went in motion on fourth-and-two in overtime that set up “Statue Left.” The New York Times called it “…a dizzying, riveting, back-and-forth game that will be remembered as one of the most exciting in college football history,” while Pat Forde of ESPN.com said “…beyond the big picture was the delicious, utterly improbable manner in which the Broncos did it. And true genius. No coaching staff has ever ended a game with so much daring.” Individually the season was much more than one win that resulted in Boise State finishing the season a school-best fifth in the Associated Press Top 25 and sixth in the USA Today coaches poll. Head coach Chris Petersen earned the “Bear” Bryant National Coach of the Year Award while Ian Johnson earned first-team All-America recognition from SI.com and CBSSportsline. com, second-team All-America honors from the Sporting News and third-team All-America accolades from the Associated Press. Ryan Clady was named second-team All-America pick by SI.com. Linebacker Korey Hall earned WAC Defensive Player of the Year honors, leading 12 players who were named either firstor second-team All-WAC. On defense joining Hall as a first-team selection was defensive tackle Andrew Browning. Safety Marty Tadman earned second-team recognition along with linebacker Colt Brooks. On offense Johnson, who led the nation in touchdowns and scoring and finished second in rushing, and Clady claimed first-team honors along with wide receiver Legedu Naanee and tight end Derek Schouman. Offensive guard Jeff Cavender was a second-team all-league choice while on special teams kicker Anthony Montgomery was a first-team All-WAC pick and punter Kyle Stringer was a second-teamer.

2009 Boise State Football

The 2008 Boise State football season started in a way that was very unfamiliar to Bronco Nation. For the first time in six seasons the Broncos were not the defending Western Athletic Conference Champions, and their journey to regaining the conference title would come on the arm of a freshman quarterback and the support of an inexperienced offensive line. Skeptics were quickly turned to believers once again, however, as the Broncos rolled to a perfect 12-0 regular season record, 8-0 in the WAC, en route to their sixth conference championship in seven seasons. Along the way Boise State made history, first with Kellen Moore who became the only freshman quarterback in school history to start a season opener. Just weeks later the Broncos earned their first ever road win against a Pac-10/BCS conference school with an exciting 37-32 win at the University of Oregon. Their big win over the Ducks put the Broncos into the national rankings at No. 19, just four weeks into the season. Boise State would climb as high as No. 9 in the Associated Press Top-25 and would maintain that spot for five consecutive polls. After their only stumble of the season, a 17-16 loss to No. 13 TCU in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, the Broncos finished the regular season ranked No. 11 in both the BCS and the AP Polls. One of the keys to Boise State’s success in the national rankings was the team’s offensive firepower in the second half of the season. After a few weeks of adjusting to a new signal caller, the offense really began to roll. In the final five games of the regular season Boise State averaged 49 points per game, including a 61-point effort against Fresno State to finish the season. But despite all of the excitement on offense, the real story of the year was the dominating Bronco defense that led the WAC in total defense (308.2 yards per game); pass efficiency defense (94.4 rating) and scoring defense (12.6 points per game), which was the fourth fewest point per game average for a season in school history. It was no surprise then, that the Broncos would earn 12 conference awards at the end of the year, including Head Coach Chris Petersen’s first-ever WAC Coach of the Year honor. Petersen was also named a finalist for the Bear Bryant National Coach of the Year award. He was joined by wide receiver Jeremy Childs, cornerback Kyle Wilson, offensive lineman Andrew Woodruff, defensive end Ryan Winterswyk and linebacker Ellis Powers, who were all named First Team All-WAC. Boise State also received Second Team All-WAC honors for six different players; Wilson (as a specialist), Moore, wide receiver Austin Pettis, running back Ian Johnson, defensive end Mike T. Williams and safety Jeron Johnson.

Wilcox, Trautman Earn Football’s Ultimate Honor
Former Bronco greats Dave Wilcox and Randy Trautman have more in common than their places in Boise State football lore and their inductions in the university’s Athletic Hall of Fame. The two have also achieved their sport’s ultimate honor. The former All-Americans played in different eras for Boise State, but they will be forever linked by their accomplishments on the field and their respective enshrinement in football’s two halls of fame. Wilcox, a two-way lineman for Boise Junior College in 1960 and ’61, finished his collegiate career at Oregon and went on to become one of the top linebackers in NFL history, earning Pro Bowl honors seven times during his 11 years with the San Francisco 49ers. Wilcox retired from football in 1975, and in 2000 he was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Trautman, a defensive tackle for the Broncos from 1978-81 and Boise State’s most honored football player, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1999.

Trautman: Key Member of 1980 National Championship Team
A native of Caldwell, Trautman was the first player from the state of Idaho to be named to the College Football Hall of Fame. He is the only Bronco football player to receive four first-team AllAmerica awards after being named to both the Kodak and Associated Press Division I-AA All-America squads his junior and senior seasons. A defensive stalwart on Boise State’s 1980 NCAA Division I-AA national championship team, Trautman also received first-team All-Big Sky Conference honors that year and in 1981. “That [national championship] ring brought us together like a marriage,” said Trautman of the 1980 Broncos. “We sweated, we bled, we beat on each other, and we went through it all together. We tasted something together very few have tasted.” Trautman finished his career at Boise State with 266 total tackles, including 29 for losses. He was selected in the ninth round of the NFL draft by the Washington Redskins and played for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League from 1982-85. He was inducted into Boise State’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 1990.

Wilcox: Lyle Smith’s Most Outstanding Player
Legendary BJC c o a c h Ly l e S m i t h called Wilcox the most outstanding player he coached during his 20 years at the Bronco helm, which is quite a compliment considering that Smith’s program produced 21 JC All-Americans during his coaching tenure. “He never had a second gear; he was in high gear all the way,” said Smith of Wilcox. “He just went real hard at practice and in the games. I was not surprised that he did so well as a professional.” A native of Vale, Ore., Wilcox was a twotime junior college AllAmerican on teams that finished 8-2 and 9-1 under Smith. “I had more fun in Boise than anywhere else as far as playing football,” said Wilcox, who also was a record-setting member of the BJC track team in the shot put and discus. “We had some outstanding players and excellent teams. Coach Smith is an outstanding person. He touched a lot of lives.” Wilcox will be inducted into the 49ers Hall of Fame in October of 2009, and in 1982 was inducted into Boise State’s Athletic Hall of Fame. His son is current Bronco defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox.

Bronco Hall of Famers

Fierce Competitors
Both Wilcox and Trautman were known as fierce competitors who relished the challenge of playing football at the highest levels. Now that Wilcox is among pro football’s elite, feigned humility seems unnecessary. “You have to know you’re good if you’re playing in the NFL,” he said. “When you go up against guys like [offensive linemen] Bob Brown, Forrest Gregg, Ron Yary and Tom Mack; tight ends like John Mackey, Mike Ditka and Ron Kramer; and then have to chase down runners like Gale Sayers for 11 seasons, you can’t be lacking in confidence in your ability.” Trautman was known for sometimes being testy during his playing days with Boise State, but it was a result, he says, of his burning desire to succeed. “I’ve always been competitive in everything I do,” he said. “I know I wasn’t easy to get along with. We came to win, and if you’re not playing to win, then you’re in the wrong program. … If people thought I was [trying to be] intimidating, it wasn’t that. I just wanted to see their enthusiasm and their goals directed to winning.” Their careers at Boise State were 20 years apart, but hall of famers Dave Wilcox and Randy Trautman have plenty in common besides their membership among football’s best.

2009 Boise State Football
Bronco Stadium and Lyle Smith Field is the home of Boise State University football and the annual Roady’s Humanitarian Bowl. Smith is the undisputed “father” of Bronco football, who from 1946 through 1967 built one of the top junior college programs in the country. When he retired from his head coaching position to become the athletic director, Smith had a record of 156-6-6 (84.6%). Prior to the 2008 season, the stadium received its third major expansion with the completion of the Stueckle Sky Center. The four-level, $35.9 million facility includes loge, club and luxary suite seating, along with a state-of-the-art press box. An additional 1,500 south end zone seats were added in 2009 to bring the current capacity to 33,500. The second major expansion of the stadium came in 1997 when capacity was increased to 30,000 when additional seating in the southwest and southeast corners, construction of the Allen Noble Hall of Fame Gallery and completion of the Larry and Marianne Williams Plaza was completed at a cost of $10 million. Originally constructed with 14,500 seats at a cost of $2.2 million in 1970, Bronco Stadium was first expanded to 20,000 in 1974 when the east side upper deck was added. Portable end zone seating brought the capacity of Bronco Stadium to 22,600 through the 1996 season. Bronco Stadium is also home to the only blue field in the United States. Blue “Field Turf” was installed during the summer of 2008, making it the fourth blue field at the stadium. Boise State established a first in 1986 by installing the first blue AstroTurf field. The second blue AstroTurf field was installed in 1995, with the third prior to the 2002 season. Other schools have special color projects for the end zone area, but Boise State’s was the first, and only, collegiate stadium to have the entire field produced in a special color. There were two previous green AstroTurf fields installed prior to 1986. The first was during the original construction of the current stadium in 1970, with the second installed prior to the 1978 season.

In an effort to continue the climb in competition, Boise State has outlined a plan to improve the infrastructure and financial position of its athletic department. The project is called the “Initiative for Athletic Excellence.” It is a detailed plan that lays out the direction for the department and its facilities to ensure the Broncos’ continued growth and success. In the last 11 years Boise State’s growth has led to the addition of women’s soccer in 1998. In 2006-07 women’s swimming & diving joined the family followed by softball in 2008-09. In recent years Boise State has built four competition facilities: the stateof-the-art Appleton Outdoor Tennis Center (2002), the Bronco Soccer and Tennis Complex (2003), Jacksons Indoor Track (2003 - a joint effort with the city of Nampa) and the Mountain Cove Softball Complex (2008). In January of 2006 the CavenWilliams Sports Complex, a 97,000 square-foot indoor practice facility, was opened next to Bronco Stadium. The Boas Indoor Tennis Center also underwent significant renovation with the replacement of the bubbles. The latest project is the Stueckle Sky Center expansion to Bronco Stadium. The stadium project includes a new press box, luxury suites, banquet hall, new ticket office, a Bronco Shop, and much more. Seating capacity for football games will increase to approximately 32,000. Other future projects include a new 10,000-square foot locker room facility and lounges for the men's and women's basketball teams; a new outdoor track stadium and practice area; a new Peterson PRECO Learning Center; a new home for the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame; and new women’s sports facilities, including competition venues for softball.

CONFERENCE AFFILIATIONS
THE WESTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE...
In its 47th year, the Western Athletic Conference continues to evolve and features some of the nation’s best intercollegiate competition. One thing that remains unchanged is the persistent nature of the nine schools in the WAC to advance their programs to contend at the top levels of the NCAA. The WAC provides its student-athletes the chance to travel to scenic destinations and gain exposure in some of the nation’s most diverse markets. In addition, the WAC’s student-athletes work to achieve the highest levels of success with the academic support of their respective institutions. The WAC has experienced tremendous success. Over the past six years, it has won 54.5 percent of its bowl games, the third best winning percentage of any conference in the nation. In the past six seasons, the WAC has sent a total of 22 teams to bowl games (12-10). Boise State has won 76 games since joining the conference, the most in the nation during that time span (2001-07). For the second year in a row, the WAC sent a team to a BCS bowl game as Hawai‘i earned a Nokia Sugar Bowl bid this past season following Boise State’s unforgettable victory in the 2007 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. In men’s basketball, the WAC has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Tournament in 23 of the past 25 seasons. Every current school in the WAC has competed in the NCAA Tournament since 1990. In women’s sports, Fresno State softball has competed in every NCAA Tournament ever held while Louisiana Tech basketball has played in all but two. The WAC is the sixth oldest among the nation’s 11 Division I-A conferences. Its history traces back to July 27, 1962, when the original six-team league of Arizona, Arizona State, Brigham Young, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming began competition. B e f o r e 1 9 9 0 , t h e WA C s p o n s o r e d championships only in men’s sports. However, a merger with the High Country Athletic Conference formed a single conference under one administrative structure, and the 1990-91 athletic year was the first in which both men and women competed under the WAC name. Currently the WAC membership consists of Hawai’i which joined in 1979, Fresno State (1992), San Jose State (1996), Nevada (2000), Boise State and Louisiana Tech (2001), and Idaho, New Mexico State and Utah State (2005). Presently, the WAC crowns team and individual champions in 19 sports – eight men’s and 11 women’s. For the men, there are championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, indoor track and field and outdoor track and field. Championships for women are held in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and volleyball. The WAC office has been located in the Denver area since the conference’s inception with the exception of a two-year stay in Phoenix from 1964-66.

CONFERENCE AFFILIATIONS
KARL BENSON
WAC COMMISSIONER ALMA MATER: BOISE STATE
When Karl Benson was named the fifth commissioner in the history of the Western Athletic Conference on April 20, 1994, he brought with him a wealth of experience and a personal history of success to the position. Since that time, Benson not only has laid a strong foundation for the WAC’s future, he also steered the conference through unsettled times during the late 1990s and again a few years later when the defection of member institutions threatened the WAC. Through his leadership and vision, it didn’t take long for the WAC to regain its place among the nation’s top Division I conferences. Benson has spearheaded conference expansion with the additions of Nevada, Boise State and Louisiana Tech earlier this decade and an additional round of expansion with New Mexico State, Utah State and Idaho joining the league a few years ago. Nationally, Benson has earned the respect of his peers after serving on the NCAA Management Council from 1999-2002, and a five-year term on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Committee from 200206. Benson hit the ground running when he was hired in 1994 and initiated several programs that improved the conference’s national position in virtually ever category. He was instrumental in developing multi-year agreements with the Holiday Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Copper Bowl, Las Vegas Bowl, Silicon Valley Football Classic, GMAC Bowl and currently, the Roady’s Humanitarian Bowl, Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl and New Mexico Bowl. In 1995-96, the WAC signed an exclusive multi-year agreement with ESPN for the unprecedented live telecasts of basketball and football. Included in that deal was a women’s basketball contract, the first in conference history. Currently, a second agreement with ESPN and ABC has resulted in 80 football games being televised over the past five years. Benson came to the WAC after four successful years as the commissioner of the Mid-American Conference. There, he implemented several innovative projects and was instrumental in the formation of the Las Vegas Bowl. Prior to taking the reins of the MAC, Benson served on the NCAA staff for more than four years where he was the director of NCAA championships. Benson joined the NCAA staff in January of 1986 as a compliance representative and was appointed assistant director of championships in June 1987. He was promoted to director of championships in 1988. In that position, Benson actively supervised eight assistant directors in their administration of 68 NCAA championships. A native of the state of Washington, Benson graduated from high school in Pullman in 1970, attended Spokane Falls Community College and then received a bachelor of science degree in physical education from Boise State University in 1975. He has also completed coursework toward his master’s degree in athletics administration at the University of Utah. Benson played baseball at both Spokane Falls Community College and Boise State University before serving as the baseball coach at Fort Steilacoom Community College in Tacoma, Wash., for eight years and as the director of athletics at Fort Steilacoom from 1979-84. From 1984-86, he was an assistant baseball coach and an administrative assistant in the athletic department at Utah. He received the Distinguished Alumni Award from Boise State in April of 2006. Benson was born on December 1, 1951 and has one daughter, Jessie, 17.

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING

COACH SOCHA’S PHILOSOPHY
Head strength and conditioning coach Tim Socha’s philosophy is that student-athletes are not only going to train hard, but that they are going to do the correct exercises that help them excel in their sport. The staff uses variation in the training programs to enhance the student-athletes’ ability to adapt and improve. The variation involves both multi-joint and multi-plane training. Flexibility, core strength and proprioceptive training also is included in all programs. Through all of the training, sport specificity is emphasized, and the one thing that will never be forgotten is that hard work is what wins championships. All 19 Boise State varsity athletic teams utilize the strength and conditioning center. Each team has a sport-specific program designed to help each student-athlete increase his or her athletic potential and decrease the chance of injury. Boise State coaches take pride in the fact that their student-athletes are some of the best conditioned in the nation. The facility is fully equipped with many different machines, as well as various free weight equipment.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS
GENE BLEYMAIER, Boise State Director of Athletics
recognizable sports venues in America and the city of Boise’s most famous landmark. In 1996 he led Boise State’s move to FBS as a member of the Big West Conference, and in 2001 he guided the Bronco Athletic Department’s transfer to its current membership in the WAC. In its first eight years in the WAC, the Bronco football team has won six league championships and finished second twice. In 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2008 Boise State went 8-0 in conference play. The Broncos have won a total of 23 league championships in all sports since joining the WAC. Prior to joining the WAC, Boise State won 15 team titles overall while it was a member of the Big West Conference from 1996-2001, and 33 overall league championships in the Big Sky Conference from 1982-1995. The Broncos also captured 13 Big Sky all-sport championships. Boise State sponsors 19 intercollegiate sports – eight for men and 11 for women. All teams compete in the WAC with the exception of wrestling (Pac-10). The 2008-09 athletic season was highlighted by six teams completing their seasons ranked in the top 25 of their respective sports and Boise State finishing the year with its highest ever finish in the Learfield Sports Director’s Cup at 49th. Football led the way capturing its sixth WAC title in seven years and finished the season ranked 11th in the nation by the Associated Press with an overall record of 12-1. Wrestling won its second straight Pac-10 championship before placing 12th at the NCAA National Championships. The Broncos won their other WAC team titles in men’s indoor track and field, gymnastics and men’s tennis (regular season). Boise State also sent several other teams to regional and national post-season competition highlighted by the men’s tennis team advancing to the round of 16 at the NCAA National Tournament for the first time in over 10 years. Individually, another chapter was added to the Bronco history book when Eleni Kafourou became the first female to win a national championship when she finished first in the women’s triple jump at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships. Conference wise Boise State student-athletes won 23 league championships. Behind Bleymaier’s guidance, Boise State student-athletes have also excelled in the classroom. During the 2008-09 academic year, 136 Bronco student-athletes received conference all-academic honors. Following the spring 2009 semester, Bronco studentathletes set an all-time single semester gradepoint-average mark at 3.00 and an all-time cumulative GPA at 3.04, marking the fourth straight semester the Boise State studentathlete cumulative GPA has been over 3.00. A record 65 percent of all student-athletes earned a 3.0 or better GPA last year. In May of 2009, the NCAA announced its multi-year academic performance rates (APR) and Boise State has the highest rates in the WAC for the sports of football, men’s basketball, men’s tennis (a perfect 1000 score), outdoor track and field, and men’s cross country – the most No. 1 rankings of any WAC school. The football and men’s basketball teams led the WAC for the third straight year. Moreover, the athletic program’s overall APR has improved every year. While Boise State has enjoyed unprecedented success on the playing fields, courts and in the classroom, it has also drastically improved its facilities under Bleymaier’s direction. In August of 2008 the most expensive capital project in the history of Bronco athletics opened with the $36 million Stueckle Sky Center which includes a stateof-the-art press box, suites, loge boxes and club seats. On August 1, 2009 Boise State officially acquired control of the 15.5-acre East Junior High School site from the Boise School District with plans to build future athletic facilities there. Located just northeast of the main campus, the first project planned will be to move Ed Jacoby Track from Bronco Stadium and build a new track and field facility. The most recent facility was unveiled this past year with the opening of the Mountain Cove Softball Field. In a cooperative effort with the Boise School District, the Bronco athletic department renovated the complex adding a press box, more seating, a scoreboard, batting cages and replacing the field. In 2006, Boise State opened the CavenWilliams Sports Complex, which is a $9.5 million indoor practice facility that includes a full size football field and the Keith and Catherine Stein Band Hall. Other capital projects completed during Bleymaier’s tenure include the Boas Tennis/ Soccer Center, a 1997 expansion of Bronco Stadium, the Allen Noble Hall of Fame Gallery, the Williams Plaza, the Peterson-Preco Learning Center, the Appleton Outdoor Tennis Center, the Jackson Indoor Track, the Idaho Sports Medicine Institute, the Bronco Football Center, the gymnastics room expansion, the Simplot Center for Athletic Excellence, the Fedrizzi Fitness Center expansion, and an expansion of the Nicholson-Yanke Center. Bleymaier served as an assistant athletic director at UCLA prior to coming to Boise State. A member of the California Bar Association and a graduate of the Loyola Law School, Bleymaier received his bachelor’s degree from UCLA. Bleymaier lettered in football and was named to the All-Pac 8 Conference third team as a tight end for the Bruins. He was the recipient of the UCLA Outstanding Senior Award and was active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Bleymaier graduated from Borah High School in Boise. Bleymaier and his wife, Danell, have four children – Maribeth, Joe, Claire and Tom.

Under Gene Bleymaier’s leadership, Boise State University’s Department of Athletics has scaled impressive and unprecedented heights with the accomplishments of its studentathletes, the successes of its teams, the growth of its facilities, the support of its community, and the advancement of its status among the nation’s premier athletic programs. Bleymaier is in his 29th year at Boise State. He joined the Athletic Department in 1981 and became the Broncos’ AD in February of 1982. In June 2008 Bleymaier received the Astro Turf Athletic Director of the Year Award at the national athletic directors’ conference in Dallas. He currently is the Western Athletic Conference’s representative to the Bowl Championship Series. In 1997 Bleymaier led the effort to create the Humanitarian Bowl – now called the Roady’s Humanitarian Bowl – and he continues to serve on the board of directors for the annual postseason football game. He served a four-year term as the WAC representative on the NCAA Division I Management Council and is also past president and vice president of the NCAA I-AA Athletic Directors’ Association. He is also a member of the Boise-based World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame board of directors. Under Bleymaier’s guidance, Boise State’s football program has grown spectacularly and gained national attention since it joined the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly I-A) ranks in 1996. In just over a decade competing at the highest collegiate level, Boise State football has put itself on the national map with winning records, league championships, national rankings and bowl victories in front of a national audience. Among the nation’s FBS programs, Boise State has the best overall record in the last 10 years (108-20, 84.3 percent), the best winning percentage for conference games the past 10 years (705, 93.3 percent), and has been the highestscoring team in the nation since 2000 (41.16 points per game). In 1986 Bleymaier was responsible for the installation of the artificial blue turf in Bronco Stadium, which has become one of the most

Bob Behler and Pete Cavender KIDO Radio's Broadcast Team
Peak Broadcasting’s 580 KIDO is in its second year as the Voice of the Broncos. In addition to airing all of the football games and men’s basketball games, KIDO broadcasts three hours of pregame coverage, two hours of postgame coverage, a coach’s show on Tuesday nights, and a daily Bronco Report weekday mornings at 7:05. Bob Behler returns for his second season calling the play-by-play and will be joined this season in the booth by former offensive lineman Pete Cavender. Bronco fans can hear the games throughout Idaho and in neighboring states over the nine station Idaho Lottery Bronco Sports Network. In addition to 580 KIDO in Boise, the games will be simulcast on 630 KIDO. Other stations carrying Boise State football include KSNQ 98.3 FM in Twin Falls, KDZY 98.3 FM in McCall, KWIK 1240 AM in Pocatello, KID 590 AM in Idaho Falls, KSRV 1380 AM in Ontario, Ore., KALE 960 AM in Tri-Cities, Wash., and KJRB 790 AM in Spokane, Wash. For the second straight year the network includes KWEI 99.5 FM, which will broadcast games to the Treasure Valley in Spanish. All of the Bronco broadcasts, including games and shows, will be streamed live on the worldwide web, free of charge, at www.kidoam.com. Behler came to Boise after serving for nine years as the Director of Broadcast Services at UMass, where he won eight Associated Press awards for his play-by-play of Minutemen sports. From 1986-1999, Behler was the voice at Bucknell University (Penn.), and from 1985-1986, he broadcast for the Chattanooga Lookouts AA baseball team. He received his bachelor’s degree in Broadcast News from the University of Georgia in 1985, where he announced women’s basketball and baseball. Behler’s past free lance credits include the NCAA Basketball Tournament for CBS Radio and SportsCenter Updates for ESPN Radio. A native of Stockton, Calif., he got his broadcasting start while in high school, doing local sports. Cavender will be in his first season as color analyst, providing insight on the football team. He played right guard for Boise State from 2003-2007. In 2007, he also saw some time at center and tight end. He missed all of the 2006 season, due to a ruptured Achilles tendon in summer conditioning. An outstanding student, Cavender was a four–year recipient of the Bronco Scholar-Athlete Award and was also named to the 2007 Academic All-WAC team as a senior. Born and raised in Elko, Nev., he graduated with a degree in Communications from Boise State in December 2007 and is currently employed as an agent for Premier Insurance in the employee benefits division.

Tom Scott and Mark Johnson KTVB-TV’s Broadcast Team
The KTVB News Group enters its fifth straight season as the home of Bronco football and basketball for television in Idaho. The 2009 KTVB broadcast team for football will feature veteran local announcers Mark Johnson and Tom Scott. Johnson will once again handle the play-by-play responsibilities. He began covering the Broncos in 1984 and called Boise State games in 1987 and 1988 before heading to Milwaukee and Pittsburgh where he covered the Badgers, Packers, Steelers and Pitt. Shortly after returning to KTVB News Channel 7 in 1996 he won back-to-back Idaho State Broadcasters Association Play-by-Play of the Year Awards. Johnson also co-anchors the 6:00 and 10:00 news on KTVB, the No. 1 rated news station in Idaho. In January of 2007 he co-anchored the Emmy Award nominated “Greatest Game Ever Played” special, which chronicled the rise of the 2006 Broncos to the Fiesta Bowl. Scott, a graduate of Boise State, has been a local radio and television personality for the past 40 years. He is no stranger to working with the Boise State athletic department, having provided commentary for Bronco football telecasts on KTVB from 1987 to 1995 and 2005 to present. Scott is the owner of Tom Scott Communications Shop, a local advertising firm, and contributes the “Scott Slant” to KTVB’s Sunday Sports Extra and KTVB.COM website, as well as daily segments on KTIK radio and KTIK.com. KTVB will produce live broadcasts of the seven games not picked up by national television networks. The seven games include Miami (Ohio) on Sept. 12, at Bowling Green on Sept. 26, UC Davis on Oct. 3, at Hawai'i on Oct. 24, San Jose State on Oct. 31, Idaho on Nov. 14 and New Mexico State on Dec. 5. The games will air live on KTVB Digital Channel 7.1, with repeats featured on 24/7 Digital Channel 7.2. KTVB will also broadcast three to four men's basketball games during the 2009-10 season. The basketball games will be broadcast live on 24/7 Digital Channel 7.2. The KTVB News Group, a subsidiary of Belo Corp., was awarded the television rights to Boise State Athletics on February 17, 2005.
