    Hammond leads Air Force over San Jose State 41-24



    DJ Hammond III began the night on the sideline, resting a sore ankle. Things changed in a hurry.

    Making an unexpected entry after an early injury forced Isaiah Sanders to leave the game, Hammond threw a 64-yard touchdown pass and finished or led four other scoring drives as Air Force beat San Jose State 41-24 on Friday night.

    Bachmeier leads No. 16 Boise State past UNVL 38-13



    Boise State was looking for a fast start against UNLV, especially coming off a bye week.

    And, while second-half defense had been the key to the No. 16 Broncos' previous four wins, their first-half defensive work was near perfect Saturday.

    Hank Bachmeier threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns and Boise State rode a strong defensive effort to a 38-13 win over UNLV.

    No. 14 Boise State loses Bachmeier, beats Hawaii 59-37



    After holding a competitive contest for the starting quarterback job, Boise State coach Bryan Harsin has insisted that the Broncos are well stocked at the position.

    Saturday night against Hawaii and its high-powered offense, Harsin's message was put to the test. Turns out, he was right.

    Chase Cord threw for 175 yards and three touchdowns in relief of injured starter Hank Bachmeier and No. 14 Boise State beat Hawaii 59-37.

    Sachse's field goal in OT leads No. 21 Broncos past Wyoming



    With Boise State clinging to a three-point lead in overtime against Wyoming, Broncos linebacker Riley Whimpey had a chance to seal the game with an interception in the end zone.

    But, he dropped the ball.

    Two plays later on third down, Whimpey blitzed and stuffed Wyoming running back Xazavian Valladay in the backfield, forcing a 37-yard field goal attempt that fell short -- a game-ending miss.

    It was that kind of night for the No. 21 Broncos, who rallied and escaped with a 20-17 overtime victory over the Cowboys.

    Henderson, No. 20 Boise State hang on for 31-24 win over CSU



    Curtis Weaver knows his Boise State history. The Broncos’ outside linebacker knows how hard it is to earn a footnote in that history.

    That’s why Weaver takes great pride in his team earning their place in that storied history.

    Jaylon Henderson accounted for three scores, defensive tackle David Moa came up with a big late sack and No. 20 Boise State beat Colorado State 31-24 on Friday to finish undefeated in Mountain West play for the first time.

    San Diego State beats C. Michigan 48-11 in New Mexico Bowl

    upload_2019-12-22_6-56-18.png

    Coming into the New Mexico Bowl, San Diego State's defense was the focus. The Aztecs ranked second in the nation in rushing defense and second in rushing yards allowed per carry. But San Diego State's offense, with only an average of 19 points-per game, ranked among the nation's worst. Something had to give against Central Michigan and its strong defense.

    So the Aztecs offense stepped it up Saturday

    Ryan Agnew passed for 287 yards and three touchdowns, Jesse Matthews caught three passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns and San Diego State won a bowl game for the first time since 2016, beating Central Michigan 48-11 on Saturday in the New Mexico Bowl.

    McDonald throws for 493, leads Hawai'i past BYU



    Hawai'i coach Nick Rolovich had this SoFi Hawai'i Bowl all figured out, except for the details.

    He told his players there would be times when beating BYU seemed out of reach, but he wanted them to expect to win the game in the fourth quarter. And that's what happened Tuesday at Aloha Stadium in a 38-34 victory for the Rainbow Warriors' first win over the Cougars since 2001.

    Air Force tops Washington State 31-21 at Cheez-It Bowl



    Air Force clung to a three-point lead, the clock showing plenty of time left for one of the nation's most prolific offenses.

    A field goal was not going to be good enough. The Falcons needed a touchdown to leave Washington State no chance.

    Going for it on fourth down was the only option -- and it worked.

    Kadin Remsberg ran for 178 yards and stretched to the pylon for a 3-yard touchdown on a late fourth down, lifting No. 24 Air Force to a 31-21 victory over Washington State in the Cheez-It Bowl on Friday night.

    Wyoming rolls over Georgia State 38-17 in Arizona Bowl



    Wyoming wanted to make the most of its bowl game after being passed over in the postseason last year. Giving a freshman quarterback his first career start didn't seem like the best approach to accomplishing that goal.

    Levi Williams handled it just fine and the Cowboys are riding off from the 2019 season with a bowl victory.

    Williams accounted for four scores, Xazavian Valladay ran for 204 yards and scored two touchdowns, and Wyoming rolled over Georgia State 38-17 in the Arizona Bowl on Saturday.
