Boise State was never threatened, as they easily handled an overmatched Hawaii team.


The Boise St. Broncos cruised to an easy victory over the Hawaii Warriors, 49-14, at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The Broncos scored first and scored often, building a 35-7 halftime lead. Quarterback Joe Southwick did most of his damage in the first half and finished with 209 yards on 17-for-29 passing and three touchdowns, with all three coming in the first half. The Broncos rushed for 155 yards on the ground as a team, providing them with a balanced offensive attack.

But the story was the defense. The Broncos held the Warriors to 203 total yards and forced five turnovers, including a third quarter fumble forced by Jonathan Brown and recovered by Demarcus Lawrence, who returned it 25 yards for a touchdown.
