Boise State vs. Nevada halftime score: Broncos up big at the break

Otto Kitsinger III

Joe Southwick has led his Boise State team to a 17-0 halftime lead over Nevada in a game that could give the Broncos a share of the Mountain West title.

In a game with conference championship implications, Boise St. quarterback Joe Southwick had led his team through a stellar first half.

Southwick is 9-of-11 passing for 79 yards and the Broncos lead the Nevada Wolfpack 17-0 at halftime in Reno. A win would give Boise St. a share of the Mountain West championship, along with San Diego St. and Fresno St., who would all have matching 7-1 league records.

From there, the Mountain West's top bowl tie-in, the Las Veags Bowl, could choose any of those teams to represent the league. The bowl announced earlier in the week that it would choose either the Broncos or Fresno St.

But in order for Boise to make it, it will have to hold on against the Wolfpack. Southwick got the scoring started with 6:12 to play in the first on a 17-yard pass to Chris Porter to cap a nine-play, 80-yard drive.

The second quarter was all Boise St. as well, with D.J. Harper setting the tone just over a minute in with a two-yard touchdown run. Harper has 83 yards on 13 carries through the first 30 minutes.

Michael Frisina later knocked in a field goal to send Boise into the locker room up 17-0.

Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo has thrown the ball just five times but has connected on four of those passes. Stefphon Jeferson has run for 55 yards on 13 attempts.
