Boise State vs. Hawaii final: Broncos win 49-14

The Boise St. Broncos cruised to an easy victory over the Hawaii Warriors, 49-14, at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The Broncos scored first and scored often, building a 35-7 halftime lead. Quarterback Joe Southwick did most of his damage in the first half and finished with 209 yards on 17-for-29 passing and three touchdowns, with all three coming in the first half. The Broncos rushed for 155 yards on the ground as a team, providing them with a balanced offensive attack.

But the story was the defense. The Broncos held the Warriors to 203 total yards and forced five turnovers, including a third quarter fumble forced by Jonathan Brown and recovered by Demarcus Lawrence, who returned it 25 yards for a touchdown.

With the win, the Broncos improved to 8-2 overall, 4-1 in the Mountain West Conference, and the Warriors fell to 1-8, 0-6 in conference.

Box Score Hero: Broncos wide receiver Aaron Burks finished with 107 yards on five receptions and a touchdown as part of a passing attack that finished with 256 yards receiving.

Broncos have easy time with Warriors

The Boise State Broncos have calmed down their offensive onslaught, only putting up seven points in the third quarter as they are dismantling the Hawaii Warriors, 42-7, after three quarters.

The only points of the third quarter came on a forced fumble by the Broncos that was recovered by Demarcus Lawrence and returned 25 yards for a touchdown.

Everyone has gotten into the act for the Broncos, as quarterback Joe Southwick has 197 yards passing with three touchdowns and Jay Ajayi and Shane Williams-Rhodes each have running touchdowns.

The Broncos have stifled the Warriors' offense as they have rushed for -5 yards on 28 carries and have turned the ball over three times.

The Broncos have 325 yards of total offense compared to the Warriors' 119 and have doubled the number of first downs the Warriors have earned (16 to 8).

The Broncos are looking to win their eighth game of the season and the Warriors seem to be on their way to losing their sixth Mountain West conference game and their eighth out of nine games overall.


Boise cruises to 35-7 halftime lead over Hawai'i

The Boise State Broncos have a substantial lead on the Hawai'i Warriors during their island vacation, building a 35-7 halftime lead in Honolulu on Saturday night.

Quarterback Joe Southwick was 14-23 for 190 yards and three touchdowns in the half, and put an exclamation on a big first quarter by hitting Aaron Burks for a 46-yard touchdown pass. The score gave Boise State a 21-7 lead in the quarter, a score that included a Shane Williams-Rhodes nine-yard touchdown run.

The Warriors have managed just 67 yards of offense thus far, their only points coming immediately after the Williams-Rhodes touchdown run. Mike Edwards returned the following kickoff 100 yards for a Hawai'i score, briefly tying the game at 7-7.

Boise State extended its lead to 35-7 on a pair of second-quarter scores: a 13-yard touchdown run by Jay Ajayi, and a Southwick pass to Holden Huff for a ten-yard score. The Broncos tallied 297 yards in the half as Ajayi and D.J. Harper have combined for 79 rushing yards.
