Boise State senior WR Cedrick Wilson caught five passes for 107 yards in a 44-19 victory over Air Force on Saturday.

Wilson didn't get into the end zone, but he did reach 100 yards for the first time in nearly two months. It makes back-to-back thousand-yard seasons for the senior, who has been a big part in making Boise State the best team in the Mountain West Conference in 2017. They have a big matchup next week against Fresno State.
Nov 19 - 1:40 AM

Boise State junior QB Brett Rypien completed 16-of-22 passes for 300 yards with three touchdowns in a 47-19 shellacking of Air Force on Saturday.

Rypien had a big yardage game last week, but it came with Boise State having to dig out of a hole. No need this time, as the Broncos dominated this one early. The junior signal-caller has now thrown for three touchdowns in three of his last four games and has gone over 300 yards in back-to-back games. The red-hot Broncos finish their year with Fresno State.

Boise State sophomore CB Reid Harrison-Ducros has left the program and will transfer.

The report was confirmed by Gary Harrison-Ducros; Reid's father. The 2016 recruit played in ten games as a freshman, and was the starting cornerback for the Broncos to begin the year. His struggles caused him to lose his spot, and he hasn't been an active player for much of the year. Unless he transfers to an FCS program, he'll have to sit out a season before being able to play in 2019.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that some in the scouting community have called Boise State redshirt junior LB Leighton Vander Esch a "special player."

Pauline himself believes Vander Esch could be better than recent Boise State front seven starts like Kamalei Correa, Demarcus Lawrence and Shea McClellin. "A three down linebacker with excellent size and a developing game, Vander Esch grades as an early pick," Pauline wrote. "At present time the feeling is he’ll stay at Boise State for his senior season." Through 10 games, Vander Esch has logged 99 tackles, 5.5 TFL, three sacks, three forced fumbles, two interceptions and three breakups.

Boise State junior QB Brett Rypien threw for four touchdowns and 331 yards on 23-of-43 passing with one interception in a 59-52 overtime victory over Colorado State on Saturday.

Rypien (6'2/208) was awful in the first half, and dug himself a 35-10 hole with just over two minutes left in the second quarter. The entire offense came to life after that, and helped give the Broncos an epic comeback victory. He found tight end Jake Roh for two of his scores, with one of them being the touchdown that sent the game into overtime with just under a minute left. Rypien is maddeningly inconsistent, but he's shown the ability to get the job done when it matters. Boise State plays Air Force next week.
Nov 12 - 3:03 AM

Boise State sophomore RB Alexander Mattison ran for 242 yards and three touchdowns in a 59-52 overtime victory over Colorado State on Saturday.

This was a sensational game, assuming you like offense, and you do. With 2:25 left in this game, Colorado State had a 35-10 lead. That's when Boise State decided to lean on Mattison, and he almost single-handedly put them back in the game. His 26-yard scamper brought them to within 18 at 35-17, and he opened the third quarter with a 70-yard score to make it 35-24. His third touchdown is the big one; a four-yard score to make it 59-52, and the Broncos recovered a fumble in the bottom of the overtime. Mattison is becoming a star, and will get a chance to build on his impressive numbers next week against Air Force.
Nov 12 - 2:58 AM

Boise State senior WR Cedrick Wilson (undisclosed) left Saturday's contest against Colorado State.

Wilson was seen leaving the game after suffering an undisclosed injury. He should be considered questionable to return until we have more information on the severity of what happened to Boise State's top playmaker.
Nov 12 - 12:07 AM

Boise State redshirt sophomore WR Bryan Jefferson has left the team.

Jefferson (5'11/189) was receiving rave reviews from the coaching staff for his athleticism over the spring, but those gifts have not translated to on-field production. The redshirt sophomore did not record a catch in either of his two active seasons for the Broncos. Jefferson is the second receiver to exit stage left from the team this season, as Julian Carter did likewise in early October.
Nov 7 - 6:41 PM

Boise State senior WR Cedrick Wilson caught five passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 41-14 win over Nevada.

The Broncos were clearly feeling frisky in this one, as Wilson also attempted two passes on trick plays. He completed both for a total of 46 yards. More traditionally, the 6-foot-3, 183-pound senior made a 44-yard touchdown grab with 12 minutes remaining in the second quarter. Wilson is working to a 50-828-6 receiving line. Boise State's offense has wobbled at times this year, but the wideout has been a game-in, game-out standout.
Nov 4 - 10:42 PM

Boise State sophomore RB Alexander Mattison rushed for 64 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries in Saturday's 41-14 breeze-of-a-win over Nevada.

Mattison had been an out-and-out roll over the last month, having surpassed 100 yards rushing in three of his last four games. The lone outlier in that space was a still-respectable 91 yards against Wyoming. On Saturday, the 6-foot, 200-pound sophomore scored from 13 yards out in the first quarter and six yards out in the third quarter. The latter score pushed Boise State's lead to 38-14, turning the game into a laugher in the process. While he hasn't been as productive as the man he replaced this season, Jeremy McNichols, Mattison has done a nice job of settling in as starting back after a slow start to the campaign. A road date with Colorado State shows next on BSU's schedule.
Nov 4 - 10:10 PM

Boise State redshirt junior DL David Moa (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Nevada.

This will be the second consecutive game that Moa has missed due to the ankle issue. The 6-foot-3, 271-pounder has registered 18 tackles (3.5 for loss) and a sack in seven games this season. There is no current timetable for his return.
Nov 4 - 6:22 PM

Boise State senior WR Cedrick Wilson caught six passes for 94 yards and a touchdown in a 41-14 rout of Utah State on Saturday.

It's been a feast or famine year for Wilson in 2017, but this does make back-to-back games that Wilson has found the end zone. His score was a 19-yarder from Broncos QB Brett Rypien at the top of the first quarter to give Boise State a 7-0 lead. Wilson will try and score for the third game in a row next week against Nevada.
Oct 29 - 1:49 AM

Boise State sophomore RB Alexander Mattison ran for 110 yards on 19 carries in a 41-14 clubbing of Utah State on Saturday.

It's the third time in four games that Mattison has been able to go over 100 yards, and he was able to run for 91 in the game that he missed. Long-story-short, Mattison has developed into an every-down back, and while he didn't reach the end zone for the Broncos, there's no way they score 41 points without his efforts. Look for him to find the end zone and 100 yard again next week against the terrible Nevada defense.
Oct 29 - 1:44 AM

Boise State junior QB Brett Rypien threw three touchdowns and completed 19-of-27 passes for 260 yards in a 41-14 rout of Utah State on Saturday.

Rypien (6'2/208) had more touchdowns Saturday than he had all season (two). This was the version of the junior quarterback we saw flashes of as a freshman and sophomore, as he was efficient with his throws and able to push the ball downfield with accuracy. The question is if he can give the Broncos this kind of effort the rest of the season. If they can, they'll be tough to beat in the Mountain West Conference. They'll look to remain undefeated in the MWC next week against Nevada.
Oct 29 - 1:41 AM

Boise State freshman DE Aisa Kelemete will undergo shoulder surgery.

If there's ever a good time to get injured, it's now for Kelemete, as he was already redshirting this fall. He'll have four years of eligibility left beginning next season. Kelemete was a three-star recruit per ESPN, Scout and 247Sports.
