Wyoming at Utah State
Final Score: Utah State 26, Wyoming 21
Final Score: Air Force 38, Colorado State 21
The Rams let Air Force hang around for too long. While an Air Force fumble on their opening drive led to a 63 yard scoop and score for linebacker Mohamed Kamara, the Rams were unable to capitalize on solid defensive performance early.
The insult to injury was the 99 yard pick six by Air Force defensive back Zane Lewis as O’Brien was trying to pull Colorado State within a score late in the fourth quarter.
After going up 14-0, the Rams were then outscored 38-7 and likely saw their slim bowl game chances disappear into the cold Fort Collins night.
Final Score: Boise State 42, New Mexico 9
On the Boise State front, this was a good game to try to get everything going right before playing traveling to take on Utah State and a rising Colorado State team. For New Mexico, this was a chance to just get back to some normalcy after tragedy struck the team a week ago. The Broncos got off to a fast start with Chase Hatada striping the ball from New Mexico quarterback Tevaka Salanoa-Tuioti that was ran back by Sonatane Lui for a touchdown. Boise State followed that with three more in the first quarter to break out to a 28-0 lead. Issues with consistency arose in the second quarter when Jaylon Henderson, Boise State’s third starter at quarterback this season, struggled and threw an interception and fumbled on back to back drives. Once the Broncos scored two more times in the second half, preservation was the goal and most of the starters started to get phased out of the game.
Realizing it’s New Mexico’s defense, the Broncos moved the ball well with Henderson at quarterback, but there were some spots in the game where execution was lacking. Henderson did well throwing for almost 300 yards and 3 touchdowns while having the 1 interception. Defensive lineman Sonatane Lui put on another great game recovering 2 fumbles, one of which he returned for a touchdown, while on offense Khalil Shakir caught and threw for a touchdown and tallied 100 total yards.
It wasn’t all good though as STUD Curtis Weaver left the field late in the second half and was later seen in a boot. Also, Hank Bachmeier and Chase Cord didn’t see any action and George Holani and Robert Mahone saw limited action. Mahone had a knee brace on and didn’t look to be healthy on the few carries he had and Holani didn’t appear to have an issue so it was likely due to the game getting out of reach of New Mexico quickly.
While it could have been cleaner, this was the kind of performance that the Broncos were looking for from the game. This should help the offense build its confidence going into a tough final two games of the season.
