The Boise St. Broncos enter halftime with a 13-10 lead, but it was a bit sloppy with several turnovers between the teams. The turning point came when Boise State's Jeremy Ioane intercepted Andrew Maxwell at the Spartans' 43-yard line and returned it to the end zone for a touchdown. Michael Frisina connected on the field goal and added three more on a 19-yard field goal later in the quarter.
The funny thing about Maxwell's interception is that it came as a result of the Spartans gaining the ball on Joe Southwick's turnover. The Broncos threatened at Michigan State's 9-yard line, but Southwick's throw was intercepted by R.J. Williamson in the end zone.
In the waning minutes and second of the second quarter, Boise State stopped Le'Veon Bell on consecutive plays to force a turnover on downs. However, Boise State fumbled the ball several plays later, allowing Michigan State to get back into the lead before halftime. It was not to be, as Maxwell was intercepted just outside the end zone to end the half.
