A huge second half by Boise St. Broncos allowed them to blowout the Miami RedHawks 39-12. The Broncos started strong in the third quarter by outscoring the Miami 21-0, and Miami had no answers for what Boise State was throwing at them.
Boise State running back D.J. Harper was the player of the game as he rushed for 173 yards on just 18 carries, plus three touchdowns. Harper also helped out in the passing game by catching one pass for 21 yards which was his fourth touchdown of the game.
For all the questions that people had about Broncos starting quarterback Joe Southwick, he answered critics on Saturday by completing 23-of-30 passes for 295 yards, two touchdowns and had one pick which happened in the red zone.
This game could have been an even bigger blowout for Boise State as that Southwick interception came in the red zone, there was a missed Boise State field goal and also a fumble deep in their own territory in the second quarter which Miami took advantage of and scored their only touchdown.
Overall, Boise State dominated Miami both offensively and defensively, and after giving up over 200 yards on the ground against Michigan State two weeks ago they rebounded nicely by allowing just 49 yards.
