Boise State wide receivers had a field day against the Hawaii secondary as Titus Young was just one yard away from making it a trifecta of 100-yard receivers.  Austin Pettis made the club with eight catches for 122 yards while Tyler Shoemaker joined with five grabs for 117 yards and a score.

Pettis and Young are proven commodities but Shoemaker is really starting to make his presence known out of the slot.

Boise State wide receiver Austin Pettis had four catches for 62 yards and a touchdown in the win over Oregon State.  He has scored a touchdown in 13 of his last 15 games including all three this season.

Pettis is the ultimate possession receiver.  He is averaging 74.3 yards per game and is about as consistent as they come.  He is a borderline WR1 in every league he is available in.

Pettis is a sure fire WR1 in any league.

Austin Pettis is finally back after suffering a broken leg late last season.  Head coach Chris Peterson is confident in Pettis and says "Austin is back full speed, 100 percent, and [he is] bringing intensity and making tough catches."

Pettis should be considered a WR1 in any league after finishing last season with 63 catches for 855 yards and an impressive 14 touchdowns.

Boise State coach Jeff Peterson says wide receiver Austin Pettis is about 90-percent after dealing with a foot injury late in the year. On a related note, receiver Kirby Moore will miss spring practice after having a screw replaced in his foot.

With Kellen Moore returning at quarterback, we expect big things out of a healthy Pettis in 2010.

Boise State wide receivers Austin Pettis (fractured ankle) and Tyler Shoemaker (hernia) are expected to see some playing time against TCU in the Fiesta Bowl.  “(Pettis is) still working through it,” Boise coach Chris Petersen said. “But he’ll be a factor somehow, some way.”

We don't expect Pettis to be regular in the rotation, but you never know what kind of tricks Peterson has up his sleeve. Pettis could also be a factor in the red zone.

Boise State coach Chris Peterson deemed wide receiver Austin Pettis (leg) "a game-time decision" for the Fiesta Bowl against TCU.

Peterson said the team's top passing threat is "right on track" but has a ways to go. Our guess has Pettis playing, though he's a very risky start at less than 100% and going against a great TCU defense.

Boise State wide receiver Austin Pettis will miss the season finale against New Mexico State due to fracture in his lower leg.  Pettis may be able to return for a bowl game.

With Pettis out, Titus Young will become even more of a focal point for the passing game.

Boise State wide receiver Austin Pettis failed to record a catch before leaving early in Friday night's game against Nevada after a botched 2pt attempt.

Trainers were seen working on Pettis' leg on the sideline, but no word this morning as to the nature of the injury.  He was in street clothes and on crutches in the second half. Obviously, we'll let you know more when we know more.  Quite a disappointing fantasy finish for Pettis, who scored in every game until last week, and then failed to catch anything in what is most owners last fantasy game of the season.

Boise State wide receiver Austin Pettis had just four catches for 69 yards Friday night at Utah State.

This was the first game all season where Pettis didn't reach the end zone.  He'll look to start a new streak next week in a showdown with Nevada

Young finished with 110 yards on eight catches while Pettis grabbed nine balls for 104 yards.  Pettis has now reached the endzone in every game this season, a streak unlikely to be halted next week against the Vandals of Idaho.

Boise State wide receiver Austin Pettis proved he is more than just a receiver while tossing an 85-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Shoemaker off the reverse to lead his team to victory in the spring game.

After emerging even more this spring coaches are expecting Pettis to add deeper routes to his repertoire. And, after Friday's toss, don't be surprised to see him in the role of trickster for the Bronco squad this fall.

Thanks to his impressive jumping ability Boise State WR Austin Pettis is emerging as a much bigger red zone threat.

Of Pettis' 13 catches over the past four games, Idaho Statesman writer Chadd Cripe says six could be deemed "leaping grabs." And with the issues that have befallen the Boise wide receiving corps, look for Coach Chris Peterson to continue calling the jump ball play for Pettis near the goal line.
