Despite being up by plenty, Boise State added a touchdown just before halftime of the 2011 Las Vegas Bowl, converting a fourth down and setting up a touchdown pass from freshman receiver Matt Miller to Kyle Efaw. If you think Chris Petersen is using Arizona State as his personal BCS stand-in this evening, you might be onto something. It's 28-3 at the half.
The lowlight for Boise State: a previous pass on a reverse by Kirby Moore, relation of Kellen. The warbling trembler had Chris Fowler chuckling for at least two minutes afterward. Fowler's been entertained all evening, adding a "Why not?" to a late-half holding penalty against ASU.
Boise State has 269 yards worth of offense, plus a 100-yard kick return. The Sun Devils have 106, plus 54 yards worth of penalties. This game is beneath Boise State.
ASU's first real chance at points ended with a 32-yard field goal. While down by 21 in a bowl game during Dennis Erickson's last day on the job. To put it in Vegas blackjack terms, the Sun Devils are standing at 12.
This is how things were going a while ago:
