Boise State HC Bryan Harsin said that freshman RB Drake Beasley Jr. will likely take a redshirt this season.

Beasley (5'11/185) was a three-star recruit in the 2017 class. The only factor which could potentially scuttle the Broncos' redshirt plan would be if the team is racked by injuries at running back in the coming weeks.

Boise State junior QB Brett Rypien (head) is probable for Friday's game against Virginia.

Rypien was injured in a Week 2 loss to Washington State and subsequently sat out a Week 3 win over New Mexico last Thursday. With a clean practice week to date, he has now been medically cleared to tango with the Cavaliers on Friday. Both Rypien and Montell Cozart are expected to play against Virginia, but Rypien will be the man taking the bulk of snaps.

Boise State redshirt junior DL David Moa was arrested early Saturday morning on a minor charge of disturbing the peace.

No details are available at this time. On the surface, the charge does not seem massive. A loss of Moa for any period would be, however, as he is arguably the Broncos' top defensive player.
Sep 16 - 12:47 PM

Boise State sophomore RB Alexander Mattison rushed for 10 yards on six carries in Thursday's win over New Mexico.

His meager output included one reception for nine yards. We remain disappointed by what we've seen from Mattison. Expected to break out as a star following the departure of Jeremy McNichols, Mattison has instead posted a pedestrian 155 yards and two touchdowns through three games. Forty-nine of those yards came on a touchdown run against Troy.
Sep 15 - 3:29 PM

Boise State senior WR Cedrick Wilson caught three passes for 64 yards in a 28-14 victory over New Mexico on Thursday.

Wilson (6'3/183) went off against the Washington State defense last week, but was mostly used as a decoy in the victory. He was able to connect on one big play, as quarterback Montell Cozart found him for a 47-yard bomb down the middle that he caught in tight coverage.
Sep 14 - 11:17 PM

Boise State redshirt senior TE Jake Roh caught three passes for 25 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for a touchdown in a 28-14 victory over New Mexico on Thursday.

Roh (6'3/227) certainly made the most of his limited touches. His first touchdown was a five-yarder from Montell Cozart on play action that found him wide open in the back corner of the end zone to give Boise State a 7-0 lead. Early in the fourth, he lined up in the Wildcat and scored on a 6-yard plunge to make it 21-7 Boise State with 11:55 left in the quarty. His second touchdown catch involved a little more work, as Cozart found him on a run-pass option near the line of scrimmage and Roh rumbled into the end zone to make it 28-7. With his wide body, he should get a few more chances to make plays in the red zone before the end of the 2017 campaign.
Sep 14 - 11:13 PM

Boise State redshirt senior QB Montell Cozart completed 15-of-19 passes for 137 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 71 yards and a score in a 28-14 victory over New Mexico on Thursday.

Cozart was starting in place of the injured Brett Rypien, and while he wasn't asked to do much, he was efficient in his throws and with his legs in the victory. He didn't have to throw the ball down the field much, but he did find wideout Cedric Wilson for a beautiful 47-yarder down the middle. His first touchdown was a 28-yard draw where he just had to make one man miss to make it 7-0 Broncos in the middle of the first. In the second quarter, he found a wide open Jake Roh in the corner of the back corner of the end zone to make it 14-7 Boise State with 9:47 left in the half. He'd find Roh one more time in the third on a run-pass option where the tight end did all the work and put the game out of reach at 28-7 with 11:55 left in the game. It wasn't flawless, but Cozart did enough to give Boise State some hope if Rypien misses a few more contests.
Sep 14 - 11:08 PM

Boise State redshirt senior QB Montell Cozart will start Thursday's game against New Mexico.

Cozart draws the start in place of Brett Rypien, who remains sidelined due to a head injury suffered against Washington State this past weekend. In emergency duty versus the Cougars, Cozart completed 12-of-20 passes for 181 yards with a pair of touchdowns and an interception. He played very well in stretches, but also showed questionable decision-making at times during the triple-overtime loss.
Sep 14 - 8:00 PM

Boise State junior QB Brett Rypien (head) is not dressed for Thursday's game against New Mexico.

Rypien was forced out against Washington State this past weekend after taking a hit which resulted in his head smacking into the turf. With the junior gunslinger unable to play against New Mexico on Thursday -- given the short practice week, it was always something of a dodgy proposition -- Montell Cozart will start at quarterback for the Broncos as they look to improve to 2-1 on the season.
Sep 14 - 7:13 PM

Boise State HC Bryan Harsin hasn't updated junior QB Brett Rypien's (head) status since saying on Monday that he's unsure if Rypien will be able to play against New Mexico on Thursday.

Rypien left Saturday’s game at Washington State after a hard hit in which his head hit the turf. He was in street clothes in the second half. Presumably in the concussion protocol, Boise State is under no obligation to divulge his status. The Broncos will likely keep New Mexico guessing until kickoff. If Rypien can't go, BSU will start the dual-threat Montell Cozart.

Boise State junior WR Akilian Butler suffered a season-ending ACL injury against Washington State.

Butler (5'10/193) suffered the injury on a one-yard loss against the Cougars. For his career, he has caught seven passes for 45 yards with no touchdowns.

Sep 11 - 6:15 PM

Boise State HC Bryan Harsin said that he is not sure whether junior QB Brett Rypien (undisclosed) will be able to play against New Mexico on Thursday.

Rypien was knocked out of Saturday's eventual triple-overtime loss to Washington State in the second half after taking a brutal sack. After that game, Harsin declined to offer an update as to the specific injury. If Rypien is unable to play against the Lobos on Thursday -- the short week does not help matters -- then Montell Cozart will see starting snaps for the Broncos.
Sep 10 - 11:42 AM

Boise State redshirt senior QB Montell Cozart completed 12-of-20 passes for 181 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in a 47-44 triple-overtime loss to Washington State on Saturday.

Cozart looked like a savior at times in relief of quarterback Brett Rypien, who left the game with what appeared to be a head injury. He also made some baffling decisions, like running out of bounds on third-and-long with 90 seconds left and one of the worst interceptions you'll see all year on a "shovel" pass as he was scrambling to his right that didn't come close to anything but a Cougar defender that returned it for a touchdown. The good was good, however, including a beautiful 47-yard strike to Cedrick Wilson that should have put the game out of reach late in the fourth. He also made plays with his legs, running for 72 yards and a touchdown as well. Cozart clearly has the talent to play at this level, but he's going to have to cut down on the silly mistakes a senior quarterback shouldn't make.
Sep 10 - 3:04 AM

Boise State senior WR Cedrick Wilson caught nine passes for 147 yards and two touchdowns in a 47-44 triple-overtime loss to Washington State.

Wilson was outstanding on Saturday, and would have been the player of the game had Boise State not blown a 31-10 lead. The 6-foot-3 wideout scored twice; first on a beautiful 47-yard post pass from to give the Broncos a 24-10 lead early in the fourth, and again in double-overtime on a 15-yard strike that tied the game at 41. Even without Brett Rypien, Wilson showed he's a legit top option who might put up better numbers than his 56-1129-11 line last year.
