Vote Rypien For Manning Award Quarterback Of The Week

BOISE, Idaho - Boise State quarterback Brett Rypien was named Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

It is the third-straight week in which the Broncos have captured the conference's weekly offensive honor, as running back Jeremy McNichols took it home Sept. 26 and Oct. 3. It is also Rypien's first-career weekly honor from the Mountain West.

Rypien, in just over a half of action in Friday's 49-21 win at New Mexico, completed 21-of-28 passes for 391 yards and a career-high five touchdowns, with all five scoring tosses and 368 of thoe passing yards coming in the opening half. After Boise State went 3-and-out on its opening possession, Rypien led seven-straight Bronco touchdown drives, hitting wide receivers Cedrick Wilson (three) and Thomas Sperbeck (two) for a combined five scores.

For Rypien it was the seventh 300-yard passing performance of his career, moving him into a tie for fourth all-time at Boise State. It also marked the second time this season he had hit the 300-yard mark by halftime, having thrown for 304 yards over the opening 30 minutes at Louisiana on Sept. 3.

Rypien was also named one of eight candidates for the Manning Award Quarterback of the Week honor. Fans can go the Manning Award Facebook Page to vote for Rypien.
