  11/21/21 - Khalil ShakirSr/2022, Boise State, 6-0, 190 (DS#5 WR) + More +

  Khalil Shakir rolled up 192 all-purpose yards, George Holani rushed for 114 yards, and Boise State returned two blocked punts for touchdowns as the Broncos defeated New Mexico 37-0 Saturday night. Boise State (7-4, 5-2) keeps alive its slim hopes of winning the Mountain Division by virtue of Wyoming's 44-17 upset of Utah State on Saturday. However, the Broncos will still need some more help in the final weekend of the regular season to advance to the Mountain West title game.

A month ago, Boise State was 3-4 and struggling. Since then, the Broncos have beaten two top 25 teams on the road and are surging. 'The guys have purpose, plain and simple,' Boise State coach Andy Avalos said of his team's turnaround. 'The commitment to how we're going to show up with a certain purpose every single day and how we're going to work for the team and how we're going to do it for the team, that's the bottom line. We've been able to develop some more players as a result of that, and we've been able to develop that dependable depth that we've been wanting for a long time.' New Mexico (3-8, 1-6) finished the game with Bryson Carroll-who was a student team manager just three weeks ago-at quarterback after an injury knocked out starter Isaiah Chavez. The Lobos only mustered 101 yards of total offense in suffering its second shutout of the season. - Boise State/AP College Football

  George Holani rushed for 102 yards, Hank Bachmeier passed for 225 yards, and the Boise State defense forced a late turnover to hold off upset-minded Wyoming 23-13 Friday night. Boise State continued its mastery of Wyoming, winning its fifth straight and 15th out of 16 games in the series. Wyoming (5-5, 1-5 Mountain West) lost its fifth game out of its last six after a 4-0 start. The Broncos (6-4, 4-2) won for only the second time at home this season, but it wasn't easy. After exchanging touchdowns, the teams settled in for a defensive slugfest in the first half. Jonah Dalmas booted a 43-yard field goal as time expired to give Boise State a 10-7 halftime lead. Boise State continued to struggle offensively in the second half, managing only a 35-yard field goal from Dalmas before the Broncos' defense provided the spark to break the game open. - Boise State/AP College Football

  Hank Bachmeier passed for 283 yards and a touchdown and Boise State had five sacks and forced three turnovers to mute No. 25 Fresno State's high-scoring offense in a 40-14 victory Saturday night. Boise State (5-4, 3-2) dominated in the rematch of the 2018 Mountain West championship game. The Broncos lost that snow-filled game in overtime and had to wait three years to get their revenge, but never trailed and took advantage of a sloppy night by the Bulldogs (7-3, 4-2). "Had a pretty good idea that they were going to be able to do this today because of how they worked throughout the week, their mindset, how they focused when we got down here," Boise State coach Andy Avalos said. "Nobody wavered from the plan." George Holani rushed for 117 yards on 21 carries. Jonah Dalmas matched his career best with four field goals.

Dalmas had a fifth field goal taken away when Fresno State was called for roughing the kicker. Three plays later. Bachmeier threw a 10-yard TD to Khalil Shakir. It was Boise State's defense, however, that had everyone buzzing after the game. "That was everything," Dalmas said. "We needed all those crucial stops that we got. They all did their jobs, did it effectively, efficiently. The defense was a huge part of creating great field position for us." Jake Haener passed for 279 yards and two touchdowns for Fresno State, but threw three interceptions - one in the end zone. Fresno State had all sorts of problems and was held to its lowest point total of the season while playing in front of its first sellout at home since 2017. - Boise State/AP College Football

  Hank Bachmeier threw three touchdown passes and Boise State erased a 13-0 first-quarter deficit to knock off Colorado State, 28-19 on Saturday night. Cayden Camper sandwiched field goals from 22-and 20-yards out around a 30-yard Todd Centeio-to-Cameron Butler touchdown pass to stake Colorado State to the 13-0 lead. The Broncos got on the board with 1:50 left in the first half when Bachmeier capped a 13-play, 97-yard drive with a nine-yard touchdown pass to Octavius Evans, but the Rams answered with Camper's third field goal of the half from 20-yards out with :11 left.

Evans cut the Colorado State lead to three with a 13-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter. Bachmeier put Boise State in front with an 11-yard strike to Stefan Cobbs and padded the lead with a 51-yard bomb to Tyneil Hopper in the fourth quarter. Bachmeier was 21 of 32 for 253 yards passing and did not throw an interception to lead the Broncos (4-4, 2-2 Mountain West). Khalil Shakir caught nine passes for 118 yards and Cyrus Habibi-Likio carried 19 times for 61 yards. Centeio was 23 of 36 for 276 yards passing without an interception and carried 10 times for 65 yards. Trey McBride caught 10 passes for 103 yards and Camper kicked four field goals for the Rams (3-5, 2-2), the longest from 28 yards out in the third quarter. - Boise State/AP College Football

  Hank Bachmeier threw for 172 yards and Boise State forced four turnovers in a 26-17 upset victory over No. 10 BYU on Saturday. Cyrus Habibi-Likio ran for a season-high 75 yards and a touchdown, and Andrew Van Buren added a season-high 60 yards and a touchdown to help the Broncos (3-3) snap a two-game losing streak in the series. The Broncos held the Cougars (5-1) to a single touchdown over the final three quarters after blowing second-half leads in losses to UCF and Nevada. "We finally finished the second half," Bachmeier said. "I think we've always been capable of doing it." Jaren Hall threw for a career-high 302 yards and a touchdown for BYU, and Tyler Allgeier ran for 73 yards and a touchdown.

The Cougars outgained Boise State 413-312 in total yards. "I felt like we moved the ball pretty well, except for a couple of drives," Hall said. "We just didn't take care of the ball and did a lot of uncharacteristic things...and put our defense in a tough spot several times. That's pretty much the story of the game for us." Hall looked sharp during the first quarter despite a two-game absence with a rib injury. He completed long passes to open each of BYU's first two drives. Hall punctuated the second drive with a 14-yard strike to Samson Nacua that made it 10-0. Boise State rallied to take a 20-10 halftime, capitalizing on back-to-back BYU fumbles. The Broncos became the first opponent to lead the Cougars at any point this season. - Boise State/AP College Football

  Hank Bachmeier threw for two touchdowns, Boise State's defense frustrated Utah State and the Broncos won their 22nd-straight conference opener with a 27-3 win over the Aggies on Saturday. The back-breaker was a 3-yard pass from Bachmeier to Scott Matlock with 5:09 to play. That capped a 15-yard drive after a critical fumble by Utah State quarterback Andrew Peasley. It took the Broncos nine plays and 4 minutes, 23 seconds to cover 15 yards because of penalties.

Utah State (3-1, 1-1 Mountain West Conference), off to its best start since the 1978 team opened 5-0, finally scored on a field goal less than a minute into the fourth quarter. But even then, the Aggies had a first-and-goal on that drive. Boise State (2-2, 1-0) answered that with a field goal and followed with Jackson Cravens' strip sack and Demitri Washington's recovery. Utah State had 217 yards in the first half but trailed 10-0 and finished with 443 yards with little to show for it. The Aggies entered the game third in the nation at 563.3 yards. - Boise State/AP College Football

  Hank Bachmeier threw for 340 yards and two touchdowns, and Stefan Cobbs added a special teams touchdown and a 61-yard scoring reception as Boise State defeated UTEP 54-13 Friday night. Boise State (1-1) gave first-year coach Andy Avalos his first win and the program's 20th straight home opening victory, playing in front of a capacity crowd for the first time since 2019. Avalos, who played linebacker at Boise State from 2001-04, relished the victory as well as the opportunity to play in front of a raucous home crowd. "To be able to go out in that stadium and have it packed the way it was—when there's that type of energy in the stadium, that's a home field advantage," Avalos said. UTEP (2-1) appeared primed to put up a fight early despite being 25-point underdogs. But six turnovers along with a defense prone to yield big plays ultimately doomed the Miners. "(Boise State) played a great game and did a lot of really good stuff, but we didn't play well and made way too many turnovers," UTEP coach Dana Dimel said. "Way too many mistakes to win in an environment like this." - Boise State/AP College Football

  09/04/21 - George HolanirSo/2024, Boise State, 5-11, 205 (DS#41 RB) + More +

  The Broncos played their season opener without starting running back George Holani. Holani made the trip to Orlando and was on the field for warmups, but he had been limited in practice all week. "It was an injury. He just wasn't ready to go this week," Avalos said. "As much as we wanted him to play, he was not ready to go and we're not gonna jeopardize him for the season." Oregon transfer Cyrus Habibi-Likio got the start at running back, finishing with 12 carries for 23 yards. Senior Andrew Van Buren added 26 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries, but the Broncos only collected 20 net rushing yards as a team. Holani missed much of last season after suffering a knee injury at Air Force, but he was healthy this spring and earned rave reviews from the coaches during fall camp. Avalos said he expects Holani to be ready to go next week against UTEP. - Idaho Statesman

  Boise State quarterback Hank Bachmeier was named to the 2021 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Watch List, Thursday. The Golden Arm Award, presented annually to the top upperclassmen quarterback by the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Educational Foundation, encapsulates all that is positive in college sports. The award acknowledges performance on the field, but it goes beyond completion percentage and touchdown strikes. The award values character, citizenship, integrity and those who honor the game. The Murrieta, Calif., native has completed 62% of his passes in his career and notched both Athlon Preseason All-Mountain West and Phil Steele Preseason All-MW fourth-team honors in 2021. - Idaho Statesman

  08/22/21 - Jack SearsrSr/2022, Boise State, 6-2, 213 (DS#30 QB) + More +

  There's been another hiccup in the race to name Boise State's starting quarterback. Quarterback Jack Sears reaggravated a lower-leg injury that kept him out of practice last weekend, Boise State head coach Andy Avalos said Sunday. Sears did not play in the Broncos' first fall scrimmage on Saturday, but Avalos said the hope is that he'll be back on the field by the middle of this week at the latest.

Sears - who joined the team last year after transferring from USC - and Hank Bachmeier are competing for the starting job again this year. Avalos said on Sunday that they were neck and neck in terms of completion percentage and touchdown-to-interception ratio before Sears' injury, but now the competition is on hold until he's able to get back on the field. "The positive is we feel very confident we can win with both of these guys," Avalos told reporters. "The improvement in the overall operation of the offense is night and day for both of those guys. The operation has obviously increased throughout the whole offense because of that." - Idaho Statesman

  Boise State had five players make the watch list for the Polynesian Player of the Year Award, which was released on Thursday. Shakir, nickel Kekaula Kaniho, running back George Holani, center Kekaniokoa Holomalia-Gonzalez and linebacker Ezekiel Noa all made the list. Shakir led the Broncos last season with 52 catches for 719 yards and six receiving touchdowns. In 2019, he led the team with 63 catches and scored 10 total touchdowns: six receiving, three rushing and one passing. He also was one of four Broncos who made the preseason All-Mountain West team, and he's on the watch lists for the Maxwell and Biletnikoff awards, given to the nation's top receiver. - Idaho Statesman
