Boise State Vs. Hawaii: Warriors Mown Down On Blue Turf, 42-7

For the first play in the fourth quarter, Boise State's Jeremy Avery hangs a right and runs for a 19-yard touchdown. Dustin Blount manages 32 yards on the responding kickoff return, and it pays dividends for the Warriors: On the fourth play from scrimmage, Alex Green breaks off a monster 54-yard touchdown run, and Hawaii is on the board with 13:26 remaining in the game.

Some fresh faces enter the game for Boise State with the score well in hand, and their next drive ends with a missed 52-yard field goal. Hawaii's next drive makes it to midfield before flickering out on a fumble.

And that'll about do it for both sides. The backups come in for Hawaii as well, and the clock winds down. Final score on the blue turf: Boise State 42, Hawaii 7. It seems silly to think about it now, but we really thought the top-ranked passing offense in the country might give the Broncos a game. Silly.
