Despite picking up a 7-6 win over the BYU Cougars on Thursday night, the Boise State Broncos probably felt that they could have done better as they looked back on the game. Winning the turnover margin by five and scoring a touchdown on a pick-six represented a great day for the defensive side of the ball, but the offense was anemic and couldn't help produce a single point.
Boise State blog One Bronco Nation Under God reacted with concern regarding the ineffective attack:
Our offense still has a lot of work. It was definitely a step back tonight. Southwick finished 15/25 for 145 yards but seemed 0 for everything in important situations. D.J. Harper looked good in spurts, but the offensive line got beat again this week in the trenches. It was pathetic that Boise State only got 7 points on 5 turnovers, especially the goal line stand by BYU after the fumble on the goal line.
The Broncos will face off against New Mexico on Sept. 29. If the Broncos are planning on putting up big offensive numbers any time this season, doing it against a Lobos defense that has given up 94 points in its last two games wouldn't be a bad time to start.
