Eye On Boise

Full moon heralds wild night on the blue for Boise State

Quite a night at BSU's Bronco Stadium tonight, where the Nevada WolfPack howled for the first half - which started with the shocking injury of BSU starting quarterback Joe Southwick, later announced to be a broken ankle - and was ahead of BSU 17-7 at the half. Then a full moon rose over the stadium, and everything changed. Backup quarterback Grant Hedrick led BSU to a 34-17 win over Nevada; it was BSU's homecoming game. Among the highlights: A 71-yard touchdown run from Jay Ajayi, and Hedrick throwing for 150 yards and running for another 115. This view from the west end of the stadium shows the full moon, at left, just as the second half opened.
