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

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.
