Boise State vs. Hawai'i Game Notes
Boise State football looks to bounce back from its first conference loss Saturday, when it travels to Hawai'i. The Broncos -ranked No. 24 in the USA TODAY Coaches' Poll- and the Warriors square off at 5 p.m. (MT) in a game nationally-televised by NBC Sports Network.
Boise State (7-2, 4-1 MW) is one of four one-loss teams in the Mountain West and sits a half game out of first place in the league standings. It will face a Hawai'i team looking for its first conference victory of the season.
The Warriors (1-7, 0-5) are averaging 20.25 points per game while allowing 42.63 per contest, both ranking 10th in the Mountain West. Boise State is the top scoring defense in the conference -and eight-best in the country- surrendering just 14.44 points per game.
The Broncos fell out of the Bowl Championship Series Standings following their 21-19 loss against San Diego State last week. It is the first time Boise State has not been in the BCS top 25 sine Oct. 21, 2007, snapping a streak of 41-straight weeks in the standings, which was the longest in the country.
Sixth-year senior running back D.J. Harper rushed for two more touchdowns against the Aztecs, bringing his season total to 12. Harper now has three-straight games with two rushing touchdowns. He also has 36 scores on the ground for his career, the fifth-most in Boise State history and the eighth-most nationally, among active players. Harper's next rushing touchown will time him for fourth all-time in school history with Cedric Minter (1977-80).
