The No. 19 Boise State Broncos rallied to defeat the Washington Huskies in the Maaco Las Vegas Bowl, 28-26, as Michael Frisina hit a go-ahead field goal with 1:16 remaining in the game to give the Broncos the lead.

Sophomore running back Bishop Sankey led the way for the Huskies with 203 yards rushing, including a 26-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He also had six receptions for 74 yards.

Boise State led by as many as eight points after a touchdown midway through the third quarter. But the Huskies fought back to take a lead -- their only of the game -- with just 4:09 remaining in the fourth when Travis Coons kicked a 38-yard field goal.

On the ensuing kickoff, Shane Williams-Rhodes returned the kick 47 yards to set up the Broncos in Washington territory, which they took advantage of with a Frisina field goal from 27 yards.

After Washington got near mid-field on their final drive of the game, Keith Price threw an interception that capped the game for the Broncos.
