Boise State Downs Warriors

HONOLULU – The Warriors are still winless in the Mountain West Conference, and still haven't beaten an FBS team this season.

Boise State cruised to a 49-14 win at Aloha Stadium as the Warriors fell to 1-8 overall, 0-5 in conference.

There was some excitement in Aloha Stadium early on.  After Boise State took their first drive in for a touchdown, Mike Edwards provided a spark for the Warriors.  The junior took the ensuing kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown, his third kick return TD of the season.  That tied the score at 7-7, but only for a few minutes.

Following three stalled drives, the Warriors were set to take possession on a punt.  However, Scott Harding fumbled on the return, which the Broncos recovered.  Six plays and 14 yards later, it was 14-7 after Joe Southwick hit Matt Miller for the go ahead touchdown.

Southwick threw his second touchdown pass of the quarter on Boise State's next possession, a 46-yarder to Aaron Burks, to make the score 21-7 after one quarter of play.

Sean Schroeder had another rough afternoon, completing 10 of 19 passes for 100 yards, with a fumble and interception.  His fumble in the third quarter was recovered and returned for a touchdown by Demarcus Lawrence.

Jeremy Higgins was 11/17 for 154 yards with an interception in relief of Schroeder.

The Warriors will play their final road game of the year Friday night at Air Force.
