2012 Las Vegas Bowl score update: Broncos lead Huskies after 1st quarter, 9-3

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Boise State jumped out to a 9-3 lead in the first quarter in the 2012 Las Vegas Bowl following a touchdown pass from Joe Southwick.

The Boise State Broncos hold a 9-3 lead over the Washington Huskies after the first quarter of this year's MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.

The two teams were knotted at three apiece, and also were about dead even statistically, until Boise State's scoring drive late in the opening stanza allowed the Broncos to take the advantage in total yards and time of possession.

Broncos quarterback Joe Southwick completed 9-of-13 passes for 66 yards and a touchdown, connecting Geraldo Boldewijn for a 17-yard score. Placekicker Michael Frisina was unable to convert the extra point, as the Huskies got a hand on it to stay within six points.

Frisina's 34-yard field goal early in the first quarter to open the game's scoring was Boise State's longest field goal in more than two years, according to Chadd Cripe of the Idaho Statesman. The kick capped off a seven-play, 29-yard drive that started after Washington fumbled near midfield on its first drive.

The Huskies tied the game on a 26-yard field goal by Travis Coons after a five-play, 49-yard drive that included a 33-yard run by Bishop Sankey.
