2012 Las Vegas Bowl halftime score: Boise State leads Washington, 18-17

USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Huskies rallied from an 18-3 deficit to cut the lead to just one at halftime.

The Boise State Broncos lead the Washington Huskies, 18-17, at halftime of the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.

Boise scored its second touchdown of the game at the 5:25 mark in the second quarter when wide receiver Chris Potter took a screen pass from quarterback Joe Southwick and flung it downfield to a wide open Holden Huff, who rolled over a Washington defender and into the end zone to give the Broncos an 18-3 lead. Boise was unable to convert on the two-point attempt, leaving them 0-for-2 in the point-after department in the game.

Just when the Huskies began to look like they would succumb to a rout, running back Bishop Sankey broke off a 26-yard touchdown run to cap off a quick three-play, 65-yard drive to get the Huskies back to within one score. On a final drive with fewer than two minutes remaining, Washington drove 63 yards and capped it with a 7-yard rushing touchdown by quarterback Keith Price.

Southwick completed 16 of 21 passes for 172 yards and a touchdown in the opening half for Boise State. Sankey was Washington's standout performer, rushing 16 times for 130 yards and a score.
